    Yes, I know I'm a Brit. and am assuming that Mart is one also but I absolutely agree with him 100%. For us across the " Pond " the thread is a fascinating insight into parts of the social history of the USA. In most posts you can look beyond the vehicles and see aspects of American life different or unknown to us here.
    I will continue to look at the thread on a daily basis but it could lose that edge that Mart alludes to. Hopefully not.

    Fellow member Rick Miller and I were talking about this car. The one that Ron Podsiadly built into a street rod was actually the Jimmy Oddy car which has since been brought back to its original glory and has a thread here on the H.A.M.B.
    We were not sure of where Ol' Rumble Guts ended up but Rick does remember the trunk deck from Ol' Rumble Guts was on another Austin that he and Ron owned at different times. That Austin and maybe even the
    Ol' Rumble Guts trunk deck still resides here in Western NY. It is owned by Paul Forti who built it not only for the road but continues to log many track miles with it as well.
     
  3. It's a wonder that T didn't just roll onto its side when offloading the concrete!

    I look at this thread two to three times a day. Many of us did not grow up in the time period in which our cars were built so these photos help put things into context. I can look at thousands of car photos but sometimes looking at the streets and the places they drove, the factories where they were built, and the service stations they went to makes me feel like I was there. It reinforces my desire to preserve the past and the cars that came from that time.

  9. E.J. Korvette Department Store in the '60s. Looks like '57 T-Bird has mag wheels on it, at least in the back.

  12. Wow, don't know how I missed this from a couple years ago. An original "hot" rod! Very ingeneous and amazing what those vets could do, eh?
     
  13. Did somebody say Corvair? :D

     
  14. "What? Sheriff says it's okay? Just ta keep it clean and keep it HAMB friendly? And that if'n we reads da guidelines and keep in line we're good ta go?"

    "Sure, that's the law of the land and the Sheriff's a pretty tough dude, so don't cross him!"

    Do we have to dress up?

    "Naw, just don't go gettin' all rat-ty though"

  17. THANK YOU Gary Reynolds!! For posts 89142 through 89146 ..Wow!
    Now, THIS is automotive history at it's best, even though they are not 'traditional hot rods'.

    And thanks Ryan!

    Notice how the Pickup and Roadster pickup bodies haven't been rubbed out...that's how the commercial vehicles came.

    Thanks Randomrodder. Never assume. I assumed it was a 59 or 60 because it didn't appear to have 58 features like the fake hood louvers. Can't see enough of the trunk to make out if it had the trunk irons. Not unusual for a modified class car to have modifications.

  27. Hometown memories! Johnny Wilson Mercury Edsel and Ramblers, and Asa Smith's Mobil Gas station. The dealership opened in 1956; building is long gone after Wilson moved the dealership to a nearby town and expanded in the early/mid 60s.

    But the now-closed gas station is still there and looks much like it did in the 1952 photo.

    I grew up a few miles from these places, and went to grade school a few blocks away.
