Vitriol - Modern lubrication for the modern soul
Not a hater. I learned to drive in Dad's '59 Ply baby blue wagon. I was a push button terror. Got stopped 12 times in my first year of driving. Only got warnings, not one written ticket. Cops were nicer to young kids in the '60's. Lots of memories, going hunting and sleeping in the back, Dad snored. One night a buddy was messing with his Trojan and ended up stuffing the foil package in the radio dial. On a trip Mom says,"what's this?" and pulls it out. I was mortified. After a '51 Ford I graduated to '57 Chevys.
Found another of the Cad factory guys.
The og bnw version of the other pic.
Nice camera platform
A certain style of spectacles was "in" at that time. Caddy motors.
Can't find the pic with the guys leaning on the fin. well I can, but keep getting locked out by pinterest.
Unless he's young Clark Kent, he's not going to hold back a Mack truck!
Here it is. It is the same guys.
Notice no-one is wearing a wristwatch? Don't want to risk scratching the paint...
Paint by Betz.... Must be Stan Betz- Betz Speed and Color..... Orange Conty Plating too... Both in the City of Orange
Thanks for finding that Mart, I was sure it was the same guys. At the Electro-Motive Div. even a Superintendent and above drove a company car, although only the executives got to park in the garage and no doubt it was the same at all GM plants. For the non-exec's they got a different vehicle every three months and when it was was turned in they had to critique it in detail. Free car, insurance and a gas card, not a bad deal for a bit of writing. No doubt it was the same for the executives but they got the better vehicles, no "soccer mom vans" for them.
We built locomotives at the plant I worked at and I saw just about everything from Corvettes to compact cars, vans, and loaded Suburbans. In the eighties they began a program where a portion of those vehicles went to our factory lot and you could "tag" a vehicle for purchase, there were some low mileage great deals and I scored more than one back then.
A drive through 1940's L.A..
Lots of spotlights and skirts. And dig the L.A. smog!
Look for the puff of smoke from the Packard cab, then watch for the Hi-Boy roadster cresting the hill on the right. Nice white-walled roadster at 2:25.
"You wanna get high man? " " toke it up man...... Oh wow man"
If this van's a rockin', don't come a knockin'!

Why I hate Pinterest, it's like they take ownership of everything uploaded to the site.

OK GUYS, what is JFK driving ?
The pic of 1959 Cadillac series 75 limousine is for Queen Elizabeth II Royal Tour of Canada. Besides the custom Cadillac limousine by GM there was also an Imperial limousine with very similar glass "greenhouse" and a Lincoln.
They would load in a military plane and fly one ahead of the itinerary.
The 1959 Cadillac had an issue once and would not start.
On the roof is the Queens shield and the British flag.
God Save the Queen
Yeah Pinterest sucks shit.... Worthless thieves and a waste of space on the internet
Why would anyone upload to their site? What a Rip Off !
