^^^^Looks like Broadway at 47th street, NYC.
Wow, they had rod runs way back then !!
I'm thinking that ^^^ is a movie set photo and not vintage.
31Dodger, you are exactly right.

Scroll to the page bottom and you will find the above screen snip.
swi66, with the number of pix you post, one or two "wrong - 'uns" are bound to slip in.
Love your work !
The above reply explains the presence of the RHD cars. Most of it is digitally produced but some of it was shot in Wellington, New Zealand and then 'worked on' by Weta Workshops to replicate 1933 Manhattan. Many of the cars used belonged to local enthusiasts and someone from that area will know which ones are real and which are not.
I don't think that is correct. A friend of mine, Pete Schilaci, bought a 1965 Pontiac Bonneville new from the factory. He ordered it with the 421" engine, dual quads, McCulloch cam, factory cast iron swoopy headers and a 4-speed tranny. It also had the 8-lug factory wheels. I sure wish I could find that car now. I'll bet there weren't too many around.
Looks more like Heaven than Hell.
Has anyone seen "Ralphy" ?
Wonder how this guy got his car in this situation !
The traditional way, "hey guys, watch this!"
You forgot "Hold my beer, and ......"
The only regular production dual quad engine from Pontiac was in 1956. They did offer a dual quad manifold for the Super Duty engines in 1961 (very few, sold over the counter only) and 1962-1963.
It may have been possible that a performance oriented dealer would have sold a new Bonneville in 1965 with an dual quad aftermarket manifold, but not a factory part - the 1962-1963 SD manifolds wouldn't fit on a 1965 or newer engine.
That would be a McKellar cam. McCullochs were superchargers.
No , as stated..No factory installed 2x4's in 1965
…. blah, blah, blah … Leroy you are such a wimp & loser, you can't even carry my full set of golf clubs like I asked you to - so I have split them up now you won't have to.
. I'll carry half and you carry the other half. O.K. ? … Geez
The three words that strike fear in a mothers heart, "hey watch this".
Broadway Market, Buffalo, 1953
What is this 37??
Production line of Barrises - small run only.
Since Mercurys were introduced in '39, I think we can assume this to be late '38-'39.
How about a young Clint Eastwood in a hot rod.? HRP
Clint's first car was a Model T-based flathead-powered lakes modified that his father bought for him for $25. Darren said he doesn’t know much more about the modified than what we see in the photo, but we do know that Eastwood took shop classes at Oakland Technical High School and often rebuilt engines (and all he had on his mind then were “fast cars and easy women”).
^^^^^HRP---You have topped yourself with this tidbit---
I like the easy woman part!
Now all he does is talk to empty chairs .LOL
32V8 , The '37 you asked about ,is a Lincoln Zephyr .
Obviously, he was trying to Ford the stream.
