I can imagine the sound of a roomful of big, buzzing V-6s.
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.
When the cold winter days come, I'm restarting my read & going back in time to Original post "01" & following to "16,7XX."... this thread is HAMB's great contribution to hot rod history!

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
Looks like the shifter tower. There were no big block Chevy's then !
floor pan, bolts to stock hump, to mount floor shifter on..?
Yep, tower for the floor shifter. No real big block Chevy's yet except for The W block.
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)
Another Aussie one. I checked and this dealership still operates in Mt Gambier South Australia
Ah ok,thanks for the info.I didn't know they where still going

If i remember correctly i read an old article on the British UK Holden owners club website that the 1960 FB StationWagon went to England and is also still with the same owner there.
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.
