Bumping was the term they used to remove dents. There's an old book around called Metal Bumping.

Wow, those "flappers" were certainly a wild bunch...

You did everything but answer his question
Vintage postcard artwork, THANKS to LegendsofAmerica!
Ah! The sad, sad lot of the lowly outhouse, to be the eternal butt of toilet humor!
Now, that's not to say that outhouses are exSTINKt, though many are now out of
oder! HAMBers may lament the disappearance of the mom & pop diner, the drive-in
theater, full-serve and 50-cent gas . . . but I haven't read of ONE person crying
about missing going to the outhouse in the dead of winter or on one of those long,
still, blistering-hot July afternoons! (Do I smell lots of first-hand personal anecdotes
coming on here??? "Here I sit all broken hearted . . . " JUST KEEP IT CLEAN, or
the moderator may get wind of it and shut us down! )
All five of the following vintage pix are for sale on eBay, folks.
Not exactly vintage, but it does fit in with the theme. From Road & Track, 1986.
Now THAT's funny, CharlieBob! Surely the folks who created everything in this pic MUST have seen the humor of it all!
Since this thread is headed for the outhouse... here's a 2 story "crapper" in Gay IL ....
I can't seem to find the original photo from the early 60's to make it vintage!
Or the song... http://airplaydirect.com/music/instanthobo/

The hamb has fallen in the crapper!
Portland's Union Station on St. John Street on the day of the last run of regular steam engine operations on the Maine Central Railroad.
I remember a cartoon like this from my days in the service. The upper level door said "OFFICERS" and the lower level "ENLISTED."
OK, maybe this has been posted a hundred times already. If so, beat me up. (It's OK, I'm the new kid on the block and it goes with the territory.)
I'm sure there will be (or have been) lots of comments on what is being built in the video.
Thank you Racer Ron Apparently some here don't know how to communicate in a positive manner. I have seen quite a few OT posts in this thread. I have also seen people quote the same 10 pic post again and again, just to say "great pics". That is a big forum no no and will get you banned in some groups, but no one says $#!+. There are all kinds of ways members are clogging up the forum, including posting numerous replies about someone instead of PMing them and offering a better forum to post a certain kind of picture. How come old schoolers here don't know how to use PM? I think there were 8 replies to my 8 "OT" photos. Talk about clogging up a thread.
Thank you to those who said vintage objects are okay if you post Vintage also. But as for posting mostly new pics?? I have posted 18 B&W vintage pics and only 8 new pics. Dog himself, in the first few posts, had a few quite obviously modern day photos of old rusted vehicles. I didn't read any text about the rules of the thread. So what's the beef?
I received a nice comment from jimi'shemi291 on the cat in the barn getting a shot of milk pic...
Olmon, another INSTANT CLASSIC for Dog's thread!
THANKS for the great contributions you've made. I'd
give anything to know just where and when this photo
I'm not sure about this photo but my mother said her dad use to do this milking the cows in Idaho about 1950.
Well, you can't please everyone I guess.
I'll tell you what; I won't remove the road grader or the Bugatti. I will find old pics of both and edit them in for a before and after comparison as suggested by a couple members. I still want people to know where the machine is parked now. I have seen a ton of replies asking where something is now or where you can see some object in the photo. This is so close to Route 66 so people can get to it easily on a road trip.
I'll move the 56 cop car to the show thread Ron shared. It's hard to find all the threads here. It would be more helpful if there were more forum categories than just one big HAMB forum. I see events, photo galleries and information threads heaped into one basket. Oh well, it is what it is...
See ya at the Big Bear Air Show Aug 6th
Here's a vintage pic so no one gets their feathers ruffled.
ITS ALL GOOD!
It's a 1942 post card... here's the words for the misplaced reading glasses group (Like me!)
MEMORIES OF THE LITTLE HOUSE "OUT BACK"
When memory keeps me company
And moves to smiles or tears.
A weather beaten object looms
Through the mist of years.
It's architecture was a type
Of simple classic art.
Yet in the tragedy of life,
It played a leading part Hurrying feet a path had made.
Straight to it's swinging door.
Behind the house it seemed
A half a mile or more.
Here the spiders spun their webs.
To catch the buzzing flies.
That flitted to and from the house
Where Ma was baking pies.
Once a nest of hornets, bold
Built their palace there,
And stung my unsuspecting aunt
I dare not tell you where.
There in summer mornings,
All cares left behind.
We'd read the mail order
Catalog hung upon a twine.
On lazy August afternoons,
It made a little bower
Delightful where my grandsire
Sat and whiled away an hour.
When the crust was on the snow,
And sullen skies were grey,
In sooth the building was no place
One would care to stay.
When grandpa had to "go out back"
To make his "morning call."
We’d bundle up the dear old man
With a muffler and a shawl.
I know the hole which grandpa used.
It was wide and large around.
When once I dared to sit there,
‘Twas way too big, I found.
As I jack-knifed there to stay.
They had to come and pull me out
Or I would have passed away.
Father said: "ambition is a
Thing that boys should shun.
You should use the children's hole
Till childhood days are done".
I ween the old familiar sight
Twill soothe my faded soul.
I'm now a man, but none the less
I'll try the children's hole.
E'er I die, I wish to eat the fruit
Of trees I robbed in days of yore,
Then seek the shanty where my
Name is carved upon the door.
Great video thanks for posting it. I'm also new and could care less if some of the trailer park trash beat up on me.
The video reminds me of a story my dad told me about the the 1930's and the depression. My dad's brother in law, my uncle Al was the head of the paint department at the Ford factory in Somerville, Massachusetts in 1938. He hired my dad to work on the paint line. After about a year my dad had enough. There where no jobs and he needed this one, but he was a free spirit. The paint guns had numbers on them. Each number represented a paint color. Number 1 was always black, and red may have been number 2., and so on and so on. Anyways as the cars came down the assembly line the painters would pick up the the correct gun with it's respective number. The body's where first painted inside, and then went threw a room with heat lamps, and then moved into the next room for the sraying of the outside of the body.
Well somehow the numbers got mixed up and the bodies that where black inside got painted white on the outside, and the red bodies may have been green. You guested it, my dad got fired. My mom told me years later that my dad was quite pleased with himself. Although he never fest up to mixing up the paint guns. Forty years later I watched him paint a rear quarter panel for old Al. It was like he never left the paint line. I guess if any of us painted all day, every day, on an assembly line we would be good at it also.
I can tell by the look on your avatar face that you've been watching this video too much LOL JK!
I love it, I've never seen this before, thanks for posting this great vintage footage
Great video JazzDad, the sad thing is that whatever they are making is probably being done in china now
Is there any question about what they are making? '36 Chevy's. Thanks for the video JazzDad!
Sorry fbi9c1, when I said what ever, I just meant generally, as the first family car I ever rode in was a 36 Chev
Elvis Presley owned one.
Dean Martin owned one.
There were only 11 in total.
