    Some shots of my brothers and I from the early 60's. The mini model T was my Dads. Looks like the gearhead gene was already kicking in!:p One of my Dad from around 1940? He would let me do any paint or mechanical work on the family cars and business trucks that I wanted. I learned by doing. Even though he might later fix it properly if I screwed it up too bad.:rolleyes: Notice I wrote A/SS on the mini.

    German Christmas dinner (red cabbage, potatoes and what might be a duck that got hit by a car) and an IV drip for the wine:

    Followed by more wine plus cigars, while somebody's wife reacts to trying "just one puff, dear":

    My Dad was considering trading in his 57 Oldsmobile for that monstrosity beside it. My Mom put her foot down, "I won't ride in that ugly thing." He kept it and I learned to drive in it.

    No clue if he could shoot but he was very fast on the draw and he could do some amazing things with those pistols!Very good at gun handling tricks in real life.

    Yes Doc, you are correct. Still runs to this day, started in the early 50's.
    I bet the Nannys don't let the people hang out of the cars like that anymore though.

    I believe that this photo shows investigators checking out explosives left behind by militants who bombed 400 feet of pipeline of the Los Angeles Aqueduct project at No Name Canyon, between the Owens Valley (Central California) and Los Angeles. Many of the land owners and ranchers in that part of California believed that they were cheated out of their water rights by the Aqueduct developers. A number of attempts were made to destroy the Aqueduct with explosives. For the Hollywood version of this story, see the movie Chinatown. Los Angeles Times photo..
