  6. This photo shows the site of the Log Cabin Restaurant in Cannon Beach, Oregon. The original structure was built by Paul Bartels for his sister, Marie in 1921. Before electrical power was available in the evening hours, the restaurant used oil lamps at the tables. The restaurant sold ice cream sodas, milk shakes, and sundaes for 15 cents, and banana splits were 35 cents. Later the building was demolished and replaced by the current Morris Fireside Restaurant.

    Those red strips of tape on the bumper tell me this was before mini vans and
    "Baby on board" bumper stickers.

    "Those red strips of tape on the bumper tell me this was before mini vans and

    When that Scotch reflective tape came out in the early 50's, people were putting it on everything, even this '52 Lincoln got the treatment!

    I do remember AB Smith. It's one of the few Chev dealers in Portland I didn't work for.

    Goleta 1949, the first (organised) drag races.
     
  22. Spent a large part of my youth at Gene's Muffler. Keith was the coolest guy around and put up with my (and lots of other kids) constant hanging around lusting after the chrome reverse wheels stacked up in the front building and waiting for the day when I could buy a set and also get a set of glass packs installed. I'd ride my stingray home and count the days.

  24. I still have one water decal left and a set of stickers that go in the center of the caps on slot aluminum wheels.
    Is that cracker box a Glen L kit?
     
  25. Not sure. It was my Moms brothers. I just remember it being direct drive and the story's about how interesting things got if it needed a jump start.

    These have to be Navy aviators on liberty in Hawaii at the Pali Lookout (old road) on Oahu. Naturally, only one had a decent shirt and civilian shoes. Or was the driver part of the tour / rental car package? LOL. Gary
