    I found this photo in my searches [whereabouts unknown] but judging by the pre-60's style Jockey helmet I would assume this photo is period correct.

    By todays standards this is so wrong in every way.
    Flameproof shorts!
    Flameproof singlet!
    No gloves!
    Jockey Helmet!
    Probably only had a Lap Belt!

    Do you know the make?
    The door lines and windshield look "Auburn" ,but it is a roadster not a boattail

    I you look close there is actually a third person in that photo. Right behind the guy looking at the driver, you can see an arm, some binoculars. Who knows what was going on in the moment. Think the car was from PA.

    Yes, sorry I left out the fact it is an Auburn from around 1929, and I think it is a boat tail. . Note the door handle, I picked up the photo on a Google search, and thought it was odd, but every restored car photo had it parallel to the door seam not he belt mounding. Bob

    The door seams and the golf door seams and the louvers in the hood are all parallel .
    I like the drivers hat and the snow chains.

    thPLEBCLTO.jpg Both Auburns have that sill that sticks out on front of the rear fender and above the splash apron, it is the filler between the fender and boat tail. Fairly sure this is another shot of the same car I originally posted, can't see the tire chains in this shot. Bob

  29. She is truly a really nice lady and a quick wit, too! Had the pleasure of meeting her and Cindy Williams, who is also a really nice lady, this past summer.
     
  30. I guess I've been distracted all these years. Never noticed that 55 paint dividers had black inserts. I always took them to be white.
