Don't know where I got this one. Had it saved to my pics album. Sorry if it is a re-post.
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! 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. Notice I wrote A/SS on the mini.
Merry Christmas to all!
Ho ho ho.....merry Christmas!
A very Merry Christmas to Hambers everywhere and very sincere thanks for sharing so many great memories! All my best to all of you.
Some Merry Christmases from Mr. and Mrs. Otto Sauseng starting in 1964:
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":
Depends on WHICH! Christmas.
Hot Rod and Surf Board .....
A friend of mine found these pics of a 40 convert his dad customized "back in the day" The old car when last seen was just a hull... so sad...
HO HO HO
The big guy decided to keep this one for himself.
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.
Great pics XP-300, thankyou for sharing. Love the ESSO service center. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YA!

Love how these people are hanging out the windows and such going over a trestle...
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.
Is that the Puffing Billy railway in Victoria Australia?
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.
The Peltier family in Shawnee, Oklahoma
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..
