    I believe the car on the left by the curb is a Checker.

    There were several styles of 'Barker Clocks' that local drive ins used, This one is from 1953 and the 10 second spots show what life was like in that time.
    *Notice the Ford adds for the new '54 cars and trucks anong others...

  17. Moe, hat's off to you tonight. It's been a bit quiet lately but boy, did you ever make up for it. Excellent job in every category. Thought I would die when I saw the sell prices though. 1900 firm. Geez, where has time gone.

    Ok, I know that we get a little outa hand, but the Rust Revival is only one weekend a year. No need to form an auxiliary police department.

    92GTA, in my book, your dad is a hero in the finest sense
    of the word. He saw repeated combat firsthand and ven-
    tured his life, never shrinking from the battle at hand, never
    letting his comrads down. That he never wanted to discuss
    it is testament to how awful war can be. Many men I've
    known just wouldn't think of talking details in the context
    of family or "civilized" society. Every war has medal-win-
    ners and many, many more unsung heroes. Your dad was
    obviously a dedicate, uncomplaining hero and a man of the
    old school.
     
  22. Jimi, for every medal winner there are literally hundreds of acts of valor going un-noticed. Always remember it has to be an 'Officer' that recommends you for a medal. I know a few guys that should be wearing medals from the higher echelons of the award telly that wear nothing as the wrong person 'saw' their acts.


    Doc.

    LordAirGtar is right: Checker. The one below seems about '35/6
    Model Y. For CABS, they had more than their fair share of style in
    the '20s and '30s, though SOME of the trim could get a tad garish!:p
    Funny, when most people TODAY only remember the bulbous
    Checkers that went from '56 to '82.

    I'm with you there, Doc. That was, indeed, my point. Medals are nice, but more guys (and gals, too) deserve them than ever get them.

    Hey, WingNutz! I'm glad you posted that.:) I still swear
    that I saw an actual ad for one of the Willys Jeepsters
    with a frilly canopy like that!:eek:

    Though I've searched, I've NEVER seen it again, nor a
    real photo.:( Has ANYBODY seen a stock original
    Jeepster like that? If so, please post a pic so I know
    (or suspect) I'm not all that crazy!:D LOL

    Search Jeepny Phillipines. You will be entertained. I might have spelled Jeepny wrong, but I'm sure the search will get you close. You can also try buses in Panama. Gary
