If you are not familiar with her, her story is pretty interesting and she captured some great images of life on the streets from the early 50's until the 70's. I don't think it would be fair to litter this site with her work and not all of it really fits but if you enjoy pictures like this, look her up.
Wasn't sure of the definition so I looked it up:
Older Slang. an automobile, especially one that is small, inexpensive, and old.
It has been my experience that he is always that way. I'm with you, you made a nice post correcting a detail and it did not require that sort of response.
@31Dodger - I think @C. John Stutzer was a little bit joking. Don't take everything too serious.
My thoughts exactly. But that would make her over 80 now.
edit: Just found that image on the photographer's site. It is her, taken in 1978. Looking closer, the gas pump is not 50s era.
Sorry. I thought so.
The Blondie Buick pic got me searching for more. Found a topless one, no Buick, sorry.
Here's a pair of Rivs to re-align.
This would be be a hell of a thread to get deleted or locked.
Many would agree with me on that one point.
Probably Kenny Weld. Ah , the good old days of the barns at Knoxville.
I'd hate to see this thread shut down or people banned due to hot headed name calling. Chill, people, it's all just for fun. I love the old pics. I was wondering why someone blacked out what looked like a vw bus, I too, saw the Model A.
There's nothing here worth falling out over.
Looks like the 1965 Buick Special we had when I was a kid. I remember those gas prices also. It once hit 28.5c in about 1971 at the Co-op station I was working at.
You are right!
Oh my, beautiful Pontiac!
: a small cheap usually old automobile
First Known Use: 1910
When you folks get this one sorted maybe you could help me with ship and boat....
Oh, that was good! I only knew about "My Friend Flicka and another horse named "Fury".
Yep. I stand corrected.
I think I can help with this problem:
Flivver was a horse and he was driving cars - so the car was called "A Flivver car" - short form "A Flivver".
Hope I could solve this confusion. Now I think everything is clear.
Separate names with a comma.
