  3. I have no idea. I can't remember last week. ( a joke guys ).
    But it was probably an image I linked to, I have too many saved on my hard drive, usually reserve space for hot roding and drag pics.
    The original image I linked to was probably deleted.
    Hope this makes sense.

  5. More bad colorizing. Wish people could leave old B&W pics in their original state.

    I don't understand what is wrong with it. The colors look good to me.
    I remember back in the 40's and early 50's that people used to have B&W pictures colorized before framing them. I remember photos of my mother and myself that were like that and the "colorizing" in those days was not very good especially in contrast to the computerized methods used today.
    Those colorized Civil War and WWI pictures really give them a feeling of reality.
     
  8. Roger that.

    Maybe he didn’t either. Coulda been a staged shot. For all we know, the girls ended up partying with Jack Nicholson.

    2 out of 3 had a good chance that night.
    I don't know about the 70's but as I recall most of the cars on Bellflower Blvd. in the 60's were lowriders (AKA shorts).

    What's wrong with it? For starters the white lettering is obviously computer generated and placed on top of the shadow.

    I am from Tyler, TX. Asking for a little help folks. In the 50's I had a 1932 5 window with 1949 Merc engine (cam, heads, 3 Strombergs. I went to a small drag strip in Winnsboro, TX to race. There was a fellow there with the first "slingshot" dragster I had ever seen. It was purple. I think he was from Longview, TX. I cannot remember his name, hoped some on out there would know who he was. Seemslike he went on to become a big name in racing. Thought I would never forget who he was. Will be 82 in April this year so memory not the same as it used to be. He beat me nearly a car length, so I thought I was doing pretty good.

  15. First time I saw this picture, I didn't notice, they all have ice cream, except the little guy on their left, (our right) he looks like he's crying. He either dropped his, or he's the red headed stepchild, and they didn't buy him one. Poor little guy.
