Gentleman's dove shoot I bet
When my wife and I were first dating she lived close to King road.
Hey @Gary Reynolds , do you remember the Milwaukie water tower?
This is a great game...so 1959 Lions Dragstrip...Traditional gas coupes and sedans class eliminations...
It is a "famous" and the sound is on Hot Rods and Dragsters in Stereo side 2 #1
Hi bedwards.Yep dove hunt.That really will test your wing shooting skills.Don`t really look like they are flying fast.But with a tail wind they can be going 60+ mph,and with a kill zone about 1/2 the size of a tennis ball.Either you are damn good,OR you burn a lot of powder for no kills.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
How about "spot the Willys Aero".
Every time I see a shot of one it reminds me of my youth in the early 60's when I delivered the newspaper to a house that always had a drag car parked in the driveway, don't recall much for detail other than the pie crust slicks sticking out through the cut out wheel openings.
All of these photos of some real nice looking gals... All nicely dressed and not one single duck pucker!!!

The Manhatten apartments are still here, I currently live well to the right of the picture but in the same vintage apartments, just on the other side of the hill. The JC Penney is still there, but the mall has been demolished, hopefully the repurposing will be done soon. This photo is from 1955 in Oak Ridge, TN. The road running left to right is Wilson St. and the other was made into Tulane. Rutgers Ave is between the Penneys and Manhatten Apts.
I met the lead guitar player for the Kingsmen (Louie Louie) near here a few years ago. They were from that area. Wonder if Kings Rd. had anything to do with their name?
The Starlight Club restaurant and bar, a relic of the 1939-40 World's Fair on Treasure Island, stood out by the highway in Terra Linda until 1963.
King Road pre-dates the Kingsmen - I've never asked Lynn where they came up with the name.
Just down the street is Viagra Warehouse and French Tickler City.
The Green Giant. I remember when they built it to replace the small silver one!
I grew up not a half mile from there on Filbert Street right off then 41st, now 42nd!
Went to Derringers all the time, it was about the only big store around then,went to the one on Woodstock too.
Bought a zillion car models there. Used to sneak looks at Playboy in the Drug Store.
I go Waaaaay back to when Wells Airport was there, the John's Chevron Station, Lisac's Market etc. Tastee Freeze! Mikes Barber Shop! Neaderthal days.
Saw JFK give a speech there as a kid in 1960!
It became Discomart later, are went a little downhill.
Here it is!
King Road was there many years before the Kingsmen.
I imagine so. I should have written, "Wonder if their name had anything to do with Kings Rd?"
Can someone please I.D. the grey & white panel truck for me. Can anyone guess what the occasion was? It was a big event in a small town in 1957!
The Doors, "Waiting for the Sun" album cover photoshoot, 1968.
Jim Morrison with two kids, 1 day after he crashed his famous Ford Mustang.
For any The Doors fans, like me, here an awesome video of L.A. Woman, mixed with Bullitt, Vanishing Point and footage of Jim in his Mustang.
1954 Chevrolet station wagon. Looks like the folks are going into that covered area to view the town's new fire engine....
Thanks, yes the towns' new engine had just arrived by rail in a special box car.
My older brother had a green 54 wagon just like this in the early 60's. I was young and that car felt like being in a cave.
