"Hubba-Hubba"when most girls wore Cashmere sweaters!!!
This picture by G.D. Fronabarger was taken at the Ted Schott Distributing Co. which sold Pepsi-Cola products in the Cape Girardeau area. The names and date are unknown.
Southeast Missourian, June 14, 1941
… and that Pepsi model T bucket has the proper motor in it too….. A Nail Head !
Is it just me or does this 58 Olds steering wheel appear to be oddly close to the windshield as these late 50's cars dashes had a considerable width from the windshield and long neck steering columns to boot. The lady appears to be sitting in the right proportion in the front seat but would need 4 foot arms to steer the car … Strange ?
Maybe the image is reversed? Perhaps the driver is the one taking the pic? See the reversed image:
Make more sense now?
I haven`t seen curb feelers in quite some time.
LOVE this photo / advert!!!!!!!!!!! Gary
I just received these great WW2 pix from a good friend in Mexico... Happy New Year to everyone on the HAMB, and to all the contributors to this great thread.
Still an outstanding thread. Happy New Year, everybody!!!
Header pipes don't look like a nailhead. Two center ports on a nailhead aren't next to each other. Looks more like a SBC to me.
Great pix from WWII. Where wud we be without those Rosies?
That's a statue of King Kamehameha in Honolulu, Hawaii behind the roadster. When I think of Hawaii, I don't normally think of hot rods, especially in the early '50s. Yet, there was a drag strip just west of Pearl Harbor when I was stationed there in the '60s.
I see you found my stash of JR car photos on facebook jrcentral .
All of these are electric powered or gas powered (not pedal cars)
Can't identify the car...appears to say 'Special' on the fender....
The girl is cute, though......
I want a time machine and a load of cash, STAT!
My 1956 Desoto UTE could be one of those on the back of the trucks? Either way it is being restored now. Would be nice to have a Desoto flatbed truck to haul it with like the lead truck in the convoy.
It's an EJ Holden sedan - made from 1962 to 63 by General Motors-Holden. Last car to be built with the original Holden 6 cylinder 'grey' motor. The succeeding 'red' six came in 63 in the EH Holden which ran from 1963 to 65. The basic body for the EJ and EH were very similar, with the front doors and front sheetmetal interchangeable. The panels from the B-pillars backwards changed.
My first car was an EJ Holden with a red six changed into it.
Shame I don't have a photo of it - I thought it was pretty cool back in the day.
