    I still recall the smell of the sun-baked cardboard on the package shelf of my parents' 52 Chevy turtle back.

    My first car, a 1950 Studebaker Champion had a valid sticker when I bought it in October,1966, but required a new one in April of the next year, as did everybody else. Texas Inspection Stations were busy in April.

    Instantly brought back memories for me traveling cross country when I was about 5 with my Aunt and Cousin in a 53 Buick. Spent a lot of time at the back deck resting like this and playing with my toy cars.

    Happiness is: turning on the ol' PC after a day of fishing with my grandson - to find 4 unread pages of the coolest thread on the internet: "Vintage shots from days gone by".

    Thanks guys (and gals)

    Rootie, any info on this one? I was thinking jalopy race but the car isn't stripped much, plus it's a four-door rather than a coupe. Then I thought maybe demo derby, but all the glass is intact. ???
