    Nicely done.  Beautiful color combo.

    I absolutely love where this is going.  I'm a big fan of art deco styling.

    Having moved twice in the last year, you can imagine how acutely I identify with this particular dilemma.  I don't even know in which state to start looking for the stuff I can't find.

    Great video; loved seeing all those late '40s cars. In Greeley, CO, there is a drive in burger joint called JB's. It has the same feel as this and, I suspect, hearkens from nearly the same era. Not to mention that on Saturday nights you'll see many of the same cars as shown here.

    My Dad's first car was a '39 Plymouth coup, and it may have saved his life.  He was in the Marine Corps at the time and his unit was getting ready to ship out to Korea when the CO said they needed someone to go to high-speed radio training, and it had to be someone with their own car.   As my father was the only one with a p.o.v., he went off to school while his buddies, many of whom did not return, went off to Korea.  He eventually became an instructor, and spent the entire war in the states.

    I like this a lot.  The lines and proportions are just right.

    '39 Plymouth coupe............personal reasons.

    That's Pretty!

    I had a model of the Apollo command module that came with a reel to reel tape recording of the mission communications. Luckily my father worked for Ampex at the time (late 60's), so we had the equipment to play it.
  11. Shardik added a post in a topic '49 Mercury Woodie Tail Lights ... now I know why   

    It occurs to me that this may well have been a safety consideration. With the tailgate lowered, the tail lights are now at the extremis of the vehicle giving following motorists a clear visual indication of where the tailgate actually is. This would be particularly helpful at night.
    Just a thought.

    Speaking of "Old Iron", I spotted something peaking through the trees as I drove up SH 195, and pulled over to find this:


    Further exploration revealed yet more treasures...

    Thank you, Dean.

    Spotted this '56 Buick Special at my favorite eatery in Wallburg, TX.


    Could use some TLC, but it looks like a driver.

    Oh yeah! I'll be there.
