    I'll play along a bit. Here's a shot of my grandfather. He drove delivery for the St. Louis Star Times during the War. He was a teamster back when teamsters had "teams".

    I flew in the Connie from Chicago to San Francisco in 1955 when I was 6. I still have to this day the gold TWA lapel wings the stew gave me to shut me up. I remember running back and forth down the aisle during the trip basically being a pain to other passengers.
     
  12. DEFINITELY Bert Convy. I just Googled him and there are a ton of photos of him....or his twin.

    Sadly, the new tire traction compound was a failure.
     
  15. I think it is now the Mast General Store. Haven't been there in a few years but I worked with one of my contractors near Asheville (nearby - Skyland) and would go to that store every time I was in town. They had a lot of stuff in there and still had a lot of that old "dime store" atmosphere.

    Here's one I was sent today from a friend of mine in New Hampshire . I'm told the car belongs to a relative and it still runs too. it is a 1908 International Harvester automobile and it's on loan to a Vermont musuiem.

  20. I think this was the "Ford Flivver". Henry doesn't look too happy because it was an underpowered poor handling flop. He was trying to do with aircraft what he had done with the automobile...make it affordable. I believe he was the first to build concrete runways, though. He also got into a lawsuit with Junkers over his use of a corrugated fuselage on his famous Tri-Motors.

  22. Yup I'm pretty sure you are correct that it's his 'flying flivver'. I think I found that pic on either the LOC website or WSU/Detroit site and it mentioned his flivver. I also saw someplace where he installed a flathead V8 in a plane as well. Can't find any pics of it now though.
