    Maybe, but I bet that boy wanted to take a baseball bat to her sewing machine... "MOOOOM, don't dress me up like you and Sis - the guys are all gonna laugh at me!" :mad::D

    Hey Michael,
    I thought that looked like a prefab. Did a little searching and found a 1949 newspaper article saying a family named Sheets was having a Lustron home built in Oak Hill on Thompson Avenue. Hit Google Maps, went to 30 Thompson, and whaddya know...

    So, are you going to build one for Elgin Falls? :)
     
  6. This is one of the cars that lead to a significant NHRA rule change!

    I imagine the new rule began with "NO"? Tell us more about this one!

    The newest car there looks to be that 63 chevy biscayne. The oldest appears to be a late 40's early 50's tudor sedan. I think it is telling that people kept their cars longer than they do now because you could maintain them yourself. Never been here before. Pretty neat picture.
     
  9. The little WW2 surplus gas motor in the back drove the supercharger.
    As we all know, part of a blowers power gain is used up running the blower itself, these guys realized they could get more usable power by using a smaller ( I think around 100 hp ) engine instead of driving it off the crankshaft.I don't think the car had some super gain in performance, but it DID open a can of worms.
    NHRA eventually said NOPE!
