I wonder if that is a Tasca stocker behind the 57 Ford B/G. It looks like a 62.
Checking out a nice Ford Sportsman
Yes it is good eye. I have posted that shot from a different angle or maybe shooting at the 62 either in the Tasca thread or the Junior stock thread a long time ago.

The great thing about this site for me is how many of the photos jog my memory. This photo was taken in downtown L.A., the hotel in the background is (or was) on 6th and San Pedro Street for those of you that know downtown L.A. The thing that jogged my memory is the brick building on the right with the sign, Canvas Products. I happened to be in downtown when that building caught fire, and stopped to watch. I was standing pretty much where the person that took this photo was standing. This photo must have been taken shortly after the fire, you can still see the smoke stains where the flames were belching out of all the windows. I haven't thought about that for over 60 years...
Lady Bird is thinking "What is L.B.J. thinking with the extra parking lights?"
How many other 36 year olds would recognize Lady Bird and Lyndon Baines Johnson?
The left rear wheel looks like its about to fall off
Lucky he pulled over for a photo shoot and wait for a tow truck... .
Car's only two years old ???
Must be all that lead I had in the trunk LOL
That's an old film photo I took a picture of it laying on the table and it musta not been laying flat lol, this one might be better
That looks better.
Great I.D. on that intersection in Los Angeles. That 3 tower building is still around the last time we were up there for a family memorial service on 1st and San Pedro St. But, it was a little shaky driving down San Pedro St. for the 5 blocks we needed. It is in the heart of "Skid Row" labeled part of Los Angeles. Encampments and panhandlers were all over the place. It was not my wife's kind of place, but we had to drive through on San Pedro St. because of the nearby traffic jam.
Normally, the fastest way into that LA City Hall-Downtown area is to get off from the I-5 freeway North to 4th St and go over the famous bridge to Alameda and First Street, thereby passing up this whole "scruffy" area.
It paid off to keep my young mind on all of those routes my dad used to take when driving in and around downtown Los Angeles. He knew all of the best roads for the fastest passages in this area. 35 years of driving from Long Beach to Los Angeles will keep you sharp.
I'm glad you fixed it before it caused an accident.
Cool photo/memories. Thanks for sharing it.
