    I remember Pine Wood Derby cars being a lot smaller when I made mine 40 years ago.

    Not sure what we are seeing here. I think that's Porsche factory-trained mechanic, Rolf Wütherich on the ground. Jimmy and Rolf went in same ambulance, but Dean DOA, not dead instantly.

    Thanks for this one - it really shows the differences between the senior series (far left) and junior series (the other three) Canadian Mercurys.

    Fender skirts always smooth out the lines and make the car look lower.

    Yeah, you tell 'em. Who in their right mind would want a '56 Imperial or '59 and '60 Chevy wagons, or even a '56 Ford wagon? What idiots they must be to like such awful cars :) :)

    In an effort to supply some background and context to some of the photos, here is what I know about this image. It as taken in Salt Lake City in June of 1913. The man in the bowler hat is Bill Rishel, automotive editor of the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper. Who the gentleman is behind the wheel, I do not know, only that he is there to be in the photo. From about 1911 to just before WWI, Bill Rishel embarked on a yearly series of pathfinding expeditions throughout Utah and the West. He used a number of different automobiles, all furnished by local dealers. This snappy Velie roadster was his 1913 ride. He and an assistant, mapped and documented all the roads and trails they travelled and then he published all the trip information in the Automotive Section of the Trib, complete with maps, milage and road conditions, for adventurous tourists who wanted to get out and explore in their autos. Bob.
