Cool pics, bigsur, yellerspirit and swi66!
Family pics. Never posted before.
My uncle brought my trike back into town with his baja bug.
My dad rolled his baja bug. My mom standing next to it.
1960's assembly line in San Jose, California.
Gerald Ford, who won three varsity letters at Michigan from 1932-34, was named Michigan's Most Valuable Player as the team's starting center in 1934.
Imagine how long it took to get the hair looking like that and having to wait for her to get it done.
the ambulance chasers would be lined up on the beach if this ride was still around
I'm actually casually shopping for a baja bug, mainly because I couldn't afford one way back then (yeah i know they weren't that much) now all these years later got more than enough money, but not sure what I would do with it, but life is like that.
7 day suspension over. Have now caught up on 30+ pages in this, my favorite thread. Am humbled by the support. Thanks to each of you who took the time to write something. Made all the time spent researching contributions worthwhile.
Every day, I put aside images stumbled across while browsing in a separate tab. Each is subsequently Googled for two reasons, to see if it has been posted previously in this thread, and if not, to find a preferred size (larger than small, 1280 max). I did try harder than most not to repeat (which is impossible). These images were then posted the following day after structuring to provide a flow, or theme. Some of you picked up on that.
90% of what I post in Vintage Shots is '40s-'50s; never VW (unless maybe in background), Mustang, muscle crap, or nudity; infrequently anything post-'65 or motorcycle. Can't evenly predict my subject matter. When 'new' rod rods & kustoms don't pop up with regularity, I feel the next best option is posting those items that provided direct inspiration for them during those periods: Cars, women, aviation, racing. If/when something like an early Jane Fonda (or faux-vintage) image slipped through, I was quick to delete.
There was no reason given for my suspension. I can't relay why it happened. Upon returning, noticed PMs stating 3 of my posts in this thread had been deleted. No clue what they were this point. Frankly, I'm more hesitant posting now (as swi66 also mentioned) without having an inclination what specifically was wrong and not wanting to repeat "mistake". I do not think it would have been too difficult for whichever moderator responsible for suspension to have taken a moment for a sentence fragment stating reason - yet am realistic enough to understand that probably won't happen. Volunteers have better things to do with their time.
I do apologize for whatever mistake was made.
YAY !!! Southurn is back. I think the reason for your 1 week was to give you a REST! You must work hard at the pic collecting.
Welcome back SouthUrn. This thread is too good to loose. Others are also doing a great job and hopefully this will go on for many years. It's entertaining, educational, and a great way to spend some time.
Welcome back SouthUrn, you were missed !!!!!
This is a good news, bad news deal:
Good news ... SouthUrn is back in action on this thread.
Bad news ... I resume wasting waaaay too much time on this thread.
Ya! Nice to see you back, yes I missed those wonderful pictures as much as anyone.
Thank you for what do.
ps, Watch those P's & Q's, won't you!
Sir Malcolm Campbell

Welcome back southurn!
In my opinion, you've made great contributions to a great thread.
Ya! Dont you dare leave again!
Always enjoy your posts Southurn!---Glad you are back with all those great contributions!
Welcome Back Southurn.....You were indeed missed. There are several guys on this thread who contribute to my ability to time travel. Many of the faithful would be missed. I'm grateful it was a 7 day suspension rather than banishment. I don't need to say anymore than that.....Let's get back to work.....Centurion9
... wow what a really nice photo. The world for Buicks n Cadillacs with this crowd and a photo without a ford or chevy in sight. Kinda refreshing :
