  2. From where I lived in western Canada, I only know of a few guys that had a single, or at most two tattoos. They picked them up either while overseas during the Korean War, or while they did service in the Navy. I don't recall one woman from that era with a tattoo. I grew up in a town of 10,000 in BC, and there were two pool halls, but no tattoo parlour.

    during '50s the only tats I saw as a kid was on old men that had come back from WAR
    my cousin was in navy and he had them,got them in asia when drunk as a lot of men did.
    during '70s he hated them and always had them covered up

    Love seeing some of the old Aussie photos. The first one is probably in Western Australia which is where the Swan Brewery was(see Swan pilsener sign)

    V6's ??? As far as I know the options back in the day were 6-in-line or V8.

    All those emblems on those hood sides are V-6's 305" gas hogs as I remember. V-8's were pretty rare for those in my area.

    Like Jimmy Six said, these were big old V-6s; they started at 305 cubic inches for the pickups, and for commercial truck they got much bigger. They had a boxcar load of low end torque, but were heavy and thirsty.
