I will take it and who do I send the money to.
Check out some of the Beach Movies of the 60's with Frankie and Annette you'll see that hat!
I need not say anymore than, Perfect Shot.
Most definitely a cool shot.
I was curious so I looked it up:
Boyle Heights is a Barrio now but it was a predominantly Jewish Neighborhood then.
Also a predominantly Mexican neighborhood in East Los Angeles,Ca. in the '40s.
That Chevy is only 8 or 9 years old and the chrome is already shot!
Exactly! My parents came to L.A. In 1929, and I have lived here since my birth in '44. During all that time, I have never heard it referred to as a desirable area or a "Jewish neighborhood."
my big dog pissed on that bumper every morning....
Welcome to the rust belt! Cars rust out in a couple of years in those states. Plus, chrome was less than great quality in '54 due to the demands of the Korean War.
G.P. Monaco, May 1955
Lancia F1 Team:#32 L.Chiron, 6th. #30 E.Castellotti , 2nd,.# 28 L.Villoresi, 4th. # 26 A. Ascari: DNF ( Accident).
Ascari met his destiny four days later on at Monza, during a private test.
Those characteristic chalk stencilled nos. were shown during the saturday testing only. Never more.
many thanks Manel: you might know - some of my photos show the D50's grills lower part blanked-off - was that there/then, too?
(and is it true Ascari had had the presence of mind to kill the motor before going in the harbour?)
Reference Post #83602 - Is this Gatlinburg, Tennessee? It looks like it to me. Does anyone know if it is?
Yes. This is also Gatlinburg.
Is that the Wagon Wheel Motel in Cuba , Mo on Rt 66?
Buick's first V-8----1953 (nailhead).
I'd be up and begging too!!!
I thought that at first but I don't think they had that many cabins and so many close together.Stayed at the Wagon Wheel in 2009 before the current owners acquired it and did it up.It was so bad back in 2009 it was funny.
The Wagon Wheel's doors have curved arches.
some vintage pics from my hometown.
and a few more from my hometown and the city I currently reside in.
and the rest. the bank robbery pic was in 1931. everybody thought the Dillinger gang or ma barker was responsible for it. turns out after talking to a few hoods in Alcatraz Menomonie wi was known as the city with the crooked bridges. everyone from Capone to Dillinger and the barker gang knew about it.
