    There were no skid marks. She never saw the truck. The road was open one day, the next they had that truck parked crossways in it. At night, no flairs, she never saw it, no stop or yeild sign, so she was traveling full speed right into it. Killed instantly. Was horrible.

    And here is my Grand Father. Awesome man. He was sort of a circus freak back in the day. Very tall man, especially back then seeing the average man only stood 5'9". My Grand Father was 6'8" tall. Very rare height back then. He and I am the only in the family that was considered tall, and he dwarfed me. I am only 6'5". Everyone else in my family including my Father were under 6'. Anyway. It's about cars of the day, and this was his pride.

    I believe the other two gentlemen in the photo are Bill Mitchell, head of design and Ed Cole, president of GM.

    I'm sticking to 1936. The '36 had suicide doors on the rear of four door sedans, and regular doors on the front. 1935 had all four doors as suicide doors. On this car pictured the front door is open, and if it were a suicide door you would not be able to see into the car. To see a '35 Master, look at Tudorp's other post above. The two door sedan is a '35 Master

    Constantine Michigan. This is a neighboring town of our current home. Very cool little town and all these building are still standing and in use today and in the Historical district of the town. This was taken sometime in the 1920's.

  19. A lot of historical homes and buildings are still standing in Constantine. Last building pictured to the far right is/was an old hotel, now a restaurant and bar, with music, dancing and all. Reminds me that I have to stop in to Pipers Subs and get a sandwich next time I'm in the area. Used to be in town weekly when I was doing sales calls. Gonna have to stop by and see Jimmy Hummel and Willie Harder (Willies Willys, an old drag racer) when I'm there too.

    In 1973 my grandmother tried to GIVE me her pristine 66 with 210K on the clock and a cooked tranny. No! I wanted impact colors and big blocks (I was 17) Can you imagine a warmed over Kelvinator 390/401 in that thing! It only weighed 2650# (only option was the AM radio) I know that 'cause we ran it over the scales at the scrap metal yard. STUPID! STUPID! :confused:

    Yep, all those buildings in the picture are still there. The first one, "P.L. Vail" is one that my wife and I tried to purchase about a year ago. We had planned to build out the 2nd floor as an apartment, live in it, and open a book store on the first floor. Things didn't pan out for that though, and we were really bummed over it. I was really looking forward in restoring it as it was back in the day. But, we had to move on.

    One of the greatest shot in drag racing. I sure do miss those days.
