Also had a Ford convertible. Fun times. Took my parents many decades to get another one that I inherited.

It is not until the tide goes out that you discover who has been swimming naked.

Thanks for the exhibition of truly exhibitionist autos. I love the coppery station wagon with matching surfboards - what style.

My favourite flower, the white ginger, is blooming now and the fragrance is intoxicating.

Patterns of light and shadow ...

Be well all

Thanks for the mean machine views.

Low riders are just a different form of artistic expression. Some like them, some don't.
Nice 49' Jeep.

This is for Janis. Unfortunately, the willows when to seed/flower whatever, by the time I got a pic. It's been fast this year, as the weather has been so changeable. 72 the high yesterday, today it's 44!

Here's some Daffies. They introduced themselves into the herb garden. So I let them stay.

I think so. I like the writing on the spare tire... West Valley Boys (or Buys), Alhambra, CA. Boy, Alhambra sure looks different now!

Do you think advertising started with the first autos?

up

joe shikspack's picture

@janis b

modern advertizing, or advertizing period?

i think that advertizing period as a western phenomenon started with artists advertizing rich people and churches. modern advertizing probably started with limners who painted signs of various sorts for businesses. at least that's my guess.

it looks like billboard advertising may have predated the automobile, wikipedia says that the first billboard rentals started in 1867.

@joe shikspack
had advertisements. It's a very, very old business, as you point out. There is graffiti from Pompeii advertising things like food shops and so on. Advertisements are found along the Roman Wall in England too, and so on. I'm sure the Greeks had advertising too, I'm just not familiar with it.

@janis b I got my first muscle car when I was 14, and have driven fast bastards since. I learned to drive when I was 7, got my first car at age 11. Just in time for drag racing muscle cars!
Something about fast cars...or motorcycles...
I just love that little car. I drive it locally, rarely take it on a freeway. While I can outrun wrecks, it is small, hard for trucks to even see.
It is the car that draws young men to me to ask if they can please look under the hood. Of course, I oblige.
It will exceed 160 mph, although, not sure by how much. I just know there is still gas pedal room at 160 mph. An amazing machine, and still has less than 70,000 miles on the odometer.

@Socialprogressive It is just an awesome, autobahn thing. I am getting it a fresh paint job, might replace the top. If I act right, it gets about 30 mpg. Big if.
I bought it in 20012, with less that 50,000 miles. It was previously owned by a doctor. He left his info in the console, and I bought this used car before the dealership had time to clean it.
The doc had his fun. My turn.

Keep posting everyone, and thank you.

I'm off to pick up some locally smoked salmon, just around the corner. Be back soon. The salmon comes from farms in Akaroa, on the South island.

Great pics all! Excellent car shots SP! Nice rides there. I wish I still had that sea green '64 T-bird with the sliding steering column, which moved a foot to the right, and stayed engaged so the person riding shotgun could steer, while I rolled... it was ostensibly for larger people to get in and out easily, being pre-tilt wheels.

Here in Japan there is a certain following for older American cars - always brightens my day to see one out on the road (tooling along in my 660CC three cylinder econo-box). Due to the fairly central location where I live - about halfway between Tokyo and Osaka - it's a convenient location for all-Japan events of various kinds and a couple times a year there are drive-in car events and I can see numbers of cool old cars on the road.

Have photos of various ones seen in the wild but can't seem to find them just now - here are a few from a local dealer's current stock, though:

1950 Hudson Commodore Eight

1960 Chrysler Imperial
