I'm a big fan of the movie Taxi Driver (1976). Here some behind the scene photos. The Checker Marathon played also a sort of big rol in the movie.
I would like to know what's become of the Damms family but I can't find any life magazine aryticle.[/QUOTE]
That is quite an article on that family..will make you very happy for what you have and wonder how they survived it all...very sad

…. IF you were raised in an atmosphere of constant want and poverty then this is not nothing new but I can see it apparently shocks some who have never really been there...
Looks like he uses the same paint scheme on all his cars - patina rust.
did you not read on to the drug and child abuse?
if so, don't. this was not just want and poverty.
if you have really been there, you know the difference -

Ford Falcon in action during the Monte Carlo Rally.
Here's one and a cool Willys
Love the picture! Except I took the picture in 2002, might not be vintage enough, hahaha! We were setting the spare flathead into this 49 Meteor I sold to a collector in British Columbia. The guy eventually whacked the roof off and put all of his 49 Meteor convertible parts in it. I have seen one picture since completion, and it looks great! I guess my smiling Dad would qualify as vintage??
What's the patent here?
"Never leave your scarf, you may need it..."
Still happening today!!

Thanks...Apparently there was one version that had a tent and mattresses fitted
wow, never would have known. Thanks for the info. Cool
Display inside the Ford Rotunda, July 1955. The sign reads, "MICHIGAN leads the nation in the number of state parks and prepared campsites available to the public!"
Ford Rotunda, Dearborn, 1936-1962. Originally constructed for the 1933-1934 Chicago World's Fair, it was relocated to Ford property on Schaefer Road in Dearborn and opened to the public on May 14, 1936. By the 1950's it was the fifth most popular tourist destination in the United States and it served as the starting point for the public tours of the nearby Ford Rouge Complex. From 1953 through 1961, the Rotunda's annual Christmas Fantasy display drew up to a half-million visitors annually. On Nov. 9, 1962, the roof caught fire during maintenance work and the entire building burned to the ground in less than an hour.
