Yeah, what a great collection of pics, especially with family members in them. I'm going to have to dig into my archives & find some family photos from long ago. My grandfather in-law was a production manager/engineer at one of the old Chrysler plants in Detroit in the 30s-50s, he took hundreds of pictures and slides, many during the war years.

Tip on the pics - if you have a high resolution digital camera (most of them are) - you might be able to take a good quality pic of the pictures. I've done it before and they turn out pretty good.

ALL of the photos, that I have submitted, have been a picture of a picture. I do not have one of those scanning thingies. They came out fairly well.
I must have been living a sheltered life. I have never seen a V8 distributor fit to a 4 cyl., like in your last picture posted, in that roadster. That was interesting !

Well, me not being a mechanic and damn-sure that car and those kids were probably rodding around before I was born, I didn't notice the dizzy (and couldn't tell the diff unless someone told me), but saw the twin carbs and those 2 other cars in the background.

But I didn't post that pic, jdl did. Maybe he has some history on it?

These pics taken at the MacMaster U homecoming parade in 1959. My 1934 (1/2ton?)pickup. Note the starting flat on the right rear. The guys all piled off and I pulled into a garage, refilled the tire and rejoined the parade with only a couple of passengers.
