Either the negative got flipped or they are Right Hand Drive. Bob
Sometimes I've been able to make out the name of a street or a business name & address on one of these photos and I'll do "Google Street View" hoping to match it up just to see how much that it has changed or if I can recognize the buildings. 90% of the time I'm really disappointed to see that they've bulldozed the buildings and replaced them with "big box" stores or a CVS Pharmacy, the women and the men have gotten fatter, the cars and trucks are all imports or boring SUVs, the interesting advertising signs have all been replaced with the "aluminum box with the bubble" type of sign....
Toronto, ON, Canada car.
Dover Drag Strip, Wing Dale, NY 1962-63
It was more likely to have just been a PHASE you were going through but as long as you were not FAZED by it don't worry too much.
Going by the look of the railway wagons - 19th century four wheelers - this is the English factory. Manchester?
Thank you LG126VEMS112 ! Hope the photo can stray now that they are "Foreign" cars.
Hope this is OK as it’s really a ‘foreign car’ ,,,it’s an Australian bodied 32 ‘Tourer’outside the Ford Factory in Geelong,Australia,,my home town and I drive past here every day,,,
Thanks hotrd32 ! Dover was in New York. Here are two shots from 1961-62, Ted Abbott in Helzapoppin now restored and running, and the Sneeky Pet Robinson rail. I could post more. Bob
Later shots of this '32 Roadster note the body rot on the bottom I'm using to ID it. Roll bar brace , 11 kill stickers on the cowl, and $900.00 For Sale sign on the door. ….. On second thought maybe the bright red paint job was applied by the new owner who shoved the engine back? Bob
Some nice old car shots in this video. Nice memories too.
With a magnifying glass you can just see the Ford script on the 'T' in the left of the photo starts with a bigger letter than the 4th letter. So it must be an F. Reverse photo would have the last letter as larger than the others.
That's a bunch of great pictures. The kind where there's a lot of interesting cars in the backgrounds to get lost looking at. Someone knew how to run a camera back then.
