    Oil wells were common as people and cars in the 20's and safety measures were little or no existent. Fires were common.

    The "trouble" was about not wanting to be shipped off to VietNam to be used as cannon fodder to please a bunch of war mongering politicians. Why would anyone be upset about that?
    The Buffalo Springfield song "For What It's Worth" is about problems on the Sunset Strip in the mid-60's.

    The photo below is a russian (Soviet) light armored car BA-20 taken as loot by Finnish troops in 1940.
    [​IMG]
    This type of BA-20 was displayed in a car show last weekend, thus I decided to share with you the interesting history.
    As you know Henry Ford sold the production line of model A to Soviet Union in early 30's.
    The factory called GAZ was founded in Novgorod and model A based car was known as GAZ A.
    Later Henry sold also the model B and the small V8-40 to the same factory.
    Russians produced a slightly re-developed car they called GAZ M1, which was more or less fordoor Deuce.
    This armored car was based on M1 frame and model A four banger. It was made in btw 1936-45 and used by red army when attacking to Poland and Finland in 1939.
    Finnish troops took 18pcs of these as loot during the last phases of the Winter War.
    We then used them against Soviets in the war 1941-44. The photo above is one of those loot cars in Finnish colors.
    Most of the cars were bound to be returned to Soviet as small part of the war reparations, but one remained in Finland.

    That's interesting...never seen one of the these before!.....It seems like it should be using half-tracks...but maybe speed was more of an issue, hence the tire/wheel....I can' help but think overheating was an issue too, all buttoned up like that.

  17. The song is about the riots caused by the newly installed 10pm curfews put in place to keep people from loitering on the strip. It had nothing to do with the war.

    You usually don't see that kind of behavior from a front line street cop, that usually occurs when they promote to Lt. or above, and then it's to themselves, with one in their mouth and one in their A$$ and switching thumbs every 15 minutes. As a Retired Deputy Sheriff, I can say that. No, I wasn't upper brass. LOL

    The
    The Colonial Theatre was on 4th avenue in downtown Seattle. The 2 story building to the right was retail and on the 2nd story was Fahey Brockman a men's clothing store where my 1st suit came from when I graduated high school The next photo is Steve Mcqueen playing with his very rare Jaguar XKSS, a street version of the famous D type le mans winners. Today they fetch over a million dollars at auction.
