During WWII, we had to pull over many times to let military convoys go by before resuming our destination.
Fly your flag on Nov.11 in support of all vets that have given us the freedoms that we enjoy today!!
Oh! I can imagine alot!!!!!!!!
Looks like the CA desert somewhere?
Anyone know the location?
Ford V. Chevy camping circa 57! Camping in the Great NW sometimes calls for certain measures! Tarps!
OK, the first of these, I'm calling Australian - it looks like a 37 Sedan buried in the shopfront - number plate and taillight on the right side, plus what looks like a Victorian reg plate. Prouds sign in the background suggests Melbourne - can't think of the street though - perhaps Bourke St?.
The other one looks like an old Pilot - also RHD and with a country house in the background suggests Oz to me, though a few other places might claim it.
The Pilot pic is from an Australian site - there are some more good pics taken at the same time.
Clyde, who went on to live in Muskogee, Oklahoma, his hometown and run a construction business, died this week in an automobile accident Wednesday. He was 77.
This is a link to short video about his rock and roll career in the 50's. There is a short commerical at the beginning.
Now, felt-soled boots are the thing to wear for fishing in streams.
Given the landscaping, I suspect this is probably the coy pond in Jayne's or someone else's SoCal back yard or even the stream at Fern Dell.
Bad impersonation! It looks nothing like Clark Gable.
Amazing link...first thing I do is check here everyday!
Thats right. I took that pic and all the others on that link backin Oct 1973. The location is a wrecking yard in the township of Bathurst New South Wales which I understand is long gone. I went there for the Hardie Ferodo 1000, a 1000km car race held there at that time.
Glad to see Ford isn't using a EMD (GM) locomotive. It's an Alco, I believe.
Does anyone know where this station was (is) located? Thanks
I agree the first picture is Australian, but the number plate is New South Wales series from 1937 to 1950's, not Victoria. My notes with the picture claim it is possibly Liverpool Street, Sydney in the 1940s.
The car inconveniently parked in the drain after going through the rail is sporting a Victorian number plate.
Blimey! I didn't expect the bloke that took the pics to chime in!
Small world ain't it?
Al Kluender's Chevron must have been in Phoenix.. I found this old sign online
