    A friend had one of those Fiat Jollys. It was so lite I could pick up the front end and we would put beer cans under the front tires. What teenagers do for fun back in the 60's...

    I made one Med cruise on the Forrestal. At that time her sister ship was the Kitty Hawk and that made Westpac cruises.

    What are the large iron "triangle" shaped parts on the very front edge of the deck ??? They are rusty so one would assume they are used often but for what ??

    Swi66 this picture sure brings back memories for me. It looks like a 1962 Michigan license plate and with the car on the other side of the gas pump (much older model) it looks like they were on a tour or headed to a show.

    The 39 Packard is one of my favorite models. It is an open drive limo (not sure of the coach work) and I believe it is a 12 cylinder car. I owned a 35 Packard 12 and a 37 Packard 12 (and actually a 39 12 but this car had Henney coachwork and carried bodies to the cemetery-wheelbase was like 163). The engine and accessories in the car were so complete and I sold it for the parts as the bodywork was trashed. The 39s may not have looked as good as some of the earlier models but they drove a bit better IMO. If I hit the lottery the first car I would buy would be a 39 Packard with a Brunn body. Cool pic. 34896689_1795822980497925_143878775896014848_n.jpg

    THEN: Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles

    NOW: It is a busy metropolitan street with big name buildings all along Wilshire Blvd. There are some famous places, including a place for hot rod fanatics.

    Hey Gary,

    Those “pencil buses”…is what we called them way back then. They were all over the Los Angeles Metropolitan area. To us, they looked like the number 2 standard yellow pencils we used in elementary and junior high school. Although, by high school some of us were using the latest, mechanical pencils. But, the resemblance is very close.

    This corner of Wilshire and La Brea has gone through many changes and it is even changing, today. We used to drive our hot rods/cruisers to this area because of the super, low cost, LP album record stores that were all over La Brea, south of Wilshire.

    The LP prices in this area of L.A. were much better than at Wallich’s Music City just down the street and also in Lakewood. Also, the La Brea Tar Pits was just down the road on Wilshire. Later, the LA County Museum of Art came along for a different show.

    Jnaki

    30 years later, the Peterson Museum stands near the La Brea Tar Pits. All part of the LA Metropolitan cruising area from way back in the 50s-60s.

    Ranger is a Forrestal class carrier, not even close to Enterprise.

    The triangular units are part of a system called a Vanzelm. It is used to retain the catapult launch bridals that drag the plane down the catapult.
