    Man I love this thread...

    If I already posted my bus, or someone else did I'm sorry, but just in case it's not in the previous 1130 pages...

    http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2563951

    New in 46! (we believe ours is the one next to the Dodge)

    we know ours is the one on the top right with the big gouge in the side, as it still had that gouge when we got it in 84.

    1984, that's my dad carrying me... hey it's still from a time gone by! LOL

    If anyone knows of any others like this bus let me know, of the 44 built this is the only known survivour, but if there is another out there, I want it! Or one of the Dodges as a companion would be cool!

    Anyone else amazed at the number and variety of vehicles we've had in just about 100 years...

    Keen! That's the so-called Spanish Aero Car, over
    the whirlpool a couple of miles below the Niagara
    Falls itself. Opened in 1916, it got its name from
    the Spanish engineer who designed it and oversaw
    the construction. I think it's only accessible from
    Colt's Point on the Canadian side, though technically
    the opposite suspension point is still Canadian soil,
    nearly 2,000 feet across the pool at Thompson Point.
    I seem to recall that the Spanish investment group
    only constructed three or four of these around the
    world. A ticket is a tad pricey, BUT dangling 250 feet
    above the whirlpool is an experience WELL worth the
    cost! BTW, the ride is a thrill but really not precarious;
    no passenger has ever been injured, and the hidden
    rescue car has never had to be called upon. Now
    officially known as the Whirlpool Aero Car, it was
    designated an International Historic Civil Engineering
    Work in 2010, nearly a century after its opening.
    More than 200,000 people visit the cable car each
    year, SO it's interesting to GUESS HOW MANY people
    have made the jump over the whirlpool!

    This great mag cover was posted by MrMayo on another
    thread, but it's SO cool, I have to reprise it here. Check
    out all the period touches, such as the fox tail on the antenna.

    Thanks for posting these,
    I grew up in Long Beach back in the 50's
    was living in Orange County by 62.
    Spent a few Saturdays at the Pike with my late gramma.

    For anybody who wants a better feel of life in the Great Depression
    or the Dust Bowl (aka the "Dirty Thirties"), there are two more
    GREAT movies: "Bound for Glory" (1976) with David Carradine as
    the great Woody Guthrie, and "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" (2000)
    starring George Clooney.

    [​IMG]

    As a dust storm picks up, a farmer and his boys head for the house,
    Cimarron County, Oklahoma, April 1936. Arthur Rothstein shot the
    photo as part of a project of the U.S. Farm Security Administration
    documenting the plight of the poor in the American south and west
    during the depression years. The Library of Congress archives many
    of the photos of Rothstein and FSA contemporaries such as Dorthea
    Lang and Walker Evans. Digitally enhanced for definition and
    contrast, this image is THANKS to the WikiMedia Commons project!

    An instant cult classic IMO, this energetic comic
    allegory, set in 1937 Mississippi, is a real bag
    of depression-era spoofs, from Babyface Nelson
    jacking up banks, to Robert Johnson's alleged
    selling of his soul to the devil, chain-gang labor,
    a crooked Bible salesman, a pragmatic governor
    modeled after Huey Long, bloodhounds, the KKK,
    a burning barn, oodles of cars, hidden treasure,
    ol'-timey music, moonshine and poverty!


    [​IMG]

    George, in character as Everett McGill, looks a bit like '30s
    movie "King" Gable, eh? Photo THANKS to Cinema.com!

    Here the REEL-life Woody Guthrie (Carradine) catches a breezy free ride.
    Both of the above posters are for sale on eBay at very reasonable cost,
    if you want to add the period feel to some corner of your house!

    [​IMG]

    And the REAL-life Woody playing his anti-communist "machine."
    Photo, taken by Ed Palumbo for the New York World-Telegram
    originally, is in the U.S. Library of Congress and is THANKS to
    the WikiMedia Commons project!
