WHY do they always have to sit on top of the damned car. Can't they just stand beside it?
ust be a 1959 picture as I see no rust on the Plymouths YET.
I was always a big Pontiac fan, and I still am BUT, we replaced a bunch of timing chains and gears on 60's Pontiacs. One guy I worked said they must have made them out of melted down model car plastic. Come to think of it I was no fan of the slim-jim transmissions either
Saturday down town before shopping malls and internet
We used to have an A and P store here in Dearborn...
I think it folded in the early 80's.. We also had a Farmer Jack.. That went belly up also...
I'm a retired GM parts counter man. I still remember the part numbers for a timing chain replacement. 483047 Cam gear, 532993 timing chain, 9775217 timing cover set, 9794125 oil pan set. I changed from a Chevy dealership to a Pontiac dealership from 71-72.
If I didn't know who Ed Roth was, I sure as hell wouldn't be motivated by this car to have him paint mine!
Not in 1958, I believe that started in 1959
Times Square and 46th st NY NY I have eaten in that Automat which of course in no longer there. In fact none of that stuff is.
Pat: What was the other name for the Automat?
Horne and Hardart or something like that. I only went to Sardi's a few times with my wife.
You got it it was Horn and Hardart.
Man does this take me back! This could be me and my pals. Couldn't afford uniforms, so we had Lisac's Market t shirts printed up. Wore red caps and red socks, we called ourselves the "Ardenwald Redlegs". Ardenwald was our neighborhood in Milwaukie Oregon.
My Dad and some other guys whipped up a pro type backstop using their WW2 skills, at Ardenwald Grade School, made the diamond too! We practiced our asses off, our best finish was second to last in the League! I was a hotshot pitcher!
After my Dad died in 08 I returned to Milwaukie for the funeral and to help my Mother. I went to visit the old school and found the backstop bulldozed in a heap. the school has since been torn down. When I thought of all those Dads building it, it broke my heart to see it destroyed. Those were wonderful days, a very different world.
My Dad always yelled " That's not bench it's a car, get off it". (him) (me).
The first "trailer queen" hehehe.
Guys, I have never met the 50's or 60's car that would be damaged from sitting on it!
Modified Sport Production was a very cool 60's class that you just couldn't do today.
Production "sports cars", and there were a zillion of 'em, the AA/MSP class was virtually unlimted in motor, chassis etc. Not a whole lot running, but they were fast and COOL!
^Cut up early 'Birds are reet!^
Those were gorgeous cars...until they were about three years old
Car 54 where are you.
That looks fun and painful all at the same time!
Where is the OSHA approved sticker?
