A lost art:
I wasn't going to post a comment, but I have just read this article on this "non existent" woman. Quite a story and well worth a read.
Three Cobra Daytona Coupes in 1964 Tour De France rally.
Andre Simon - Maurice Dupeyron #186, Bob Bondurant - Jochen Neerpasch #187 and Maurice Trintignant - Bernard St-Auban #188
In case anyone missed it or might not have known, here is another great thread with LOTS of classic photos 'As They Were...' started by the boss (Ryan) a bit over a year ago:
Toronto 1960, Bloor St.
And for pics that might be cool but aren't "vintage" original shots from days gone by and show stuff from back in the day, check out the 'Cool pictures! Post them here! II' thread
A plethora of history at our fingertips!
RIP Phil Everly, 1939-2014
Perhaps there are too many of these "general" photo threads now? I can understand having a bunch of Model A, or vintage race cars, or whatever you want special threads, but as much fun as these threads are, we might be one over the practical limit for general images, IMHO. Gary
I used to stop there many years ago.
Everly Bros. were among my favorites. R.I.P. Phil...
I visited the Garlits museum for the first time last year and plan to visit again next month with my 16 year old son (he's a dyed in the wool car guy who loves 50's rods and customs and is planning to attend a local college program for automotive restoration after high school). It's a great way to spend a day, especially if you include the Sonny's Pit BBQ just around the corner!
Everly Bro. just great music. Rip Phil.
Wonder where that piece is today ??....would look nice on the coffee table...
Back in the days before the auto in the northern US they would switch the horses from carriages to sleighs during the snow season and pack the snow to make it easier for the horses to walk on and the sleighs would pull easier. Horses could move tremendous loads on hard-packed snow:
Nice picture! My Dad took this pic in Lethbridge, AB, on a roadtrip with his buddies. They hopped in Dads 55 Chevy and took a cruise to see the 'new' cars at the dealership.
..I think it would look very well in the toilet bowl... this is for the head of hilter.....miller
How about the toilet bowl??
Looks like you found Denise Diplock with Catalina Cappy!
That might be where he found it. Took him 3 or 4 tries & still wasn't sure if he got the right one. . .
Having owned and driven both a 1950 Oldsmobile and a 1950 Ford (in their day) THERE AINT NO WAY the two of them could compete on the same race track!!! The difference in performance was night and day!!!
The '50 Olds in this picture is probably lapping the Ford and the Stude for the umpteenth time!
I LOVE THIS THREAD!!!
Don't change a thing!! ;o)
Now in my mid-sixties and as I listen to some terrific oldies on a internet station in Pittsburgh,one cannot relate to all the memories all of us have had,some better than others. We grew up with a passion for cars...girls,music,planes,music,trains,families,good times,bad times,loves,treasures,and some still live it,some wish...it was and is real. Phil & Don are no longer...neither are some in these shots. Thanks for this site,the memories and be it real or perceived,listen to some great music,and enjoy. Life is short,when I drive my 37 Ford coupe...I am a teenager again,by the way...don`t challenge an old dude as you might be surprised. By the way...some of us cheat like H...! Thanks for this site and the HAMB. Bitchin,just bitchin!
