  7. Speaking of Sta-Lube, does anyone recall the smell of the Sta-Lube hand cleaner of the 50's? I STILL remember it well, as a kid I thought if was ultra cool to wash my hands with the stuff!

    The rear fenders look really long on that T-Bird . What's that all about?
     
  14. It looks like a stock TBird convertible to me.

  17. I was parts manager at the Ford dealership in Oscoda in the mid 70s after I got out of the Air Force. Was never stationed at Wurtsmith but went to high school just north of Oscoda in Lincoln.

    As soon as I saw this I recognized the location. The 300 block of Forbes Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh. I'm pretty sure Alvin's is still there. Looks like a 'pimpmobile'.

    It does not look stock and if you look at the picture closely, you can see where the body extension starts. One could certainly pull an airstream with one of those T-Birds. I also was wondering what the story is on the extended body.

    It does look longer. Maybe it's just from lugging that trailer around. :)
