GIRLS ON BUICKS IV

Recommended Posts

My 60 LeSabre convertible was invited to participate in a classic car photo shoot. I will have some additions to this thread as the photos come in.

Here we go with color  matching hues.

I know this is a artist rendered print but can somebody tell me what kind of car this is...it has Buick cues as portholes and sweepspear shapes for some reason this print makes me drink ?!

This drawing is by Bill Medcalf. It was originally drawn as an ad for Kelly-springfield tires in 1950.  If you Google him and his pinup girls, you'll see he draws a lot of cars,  none of which are actual cars but appear to be a compilation of features from many cars.

At first glance I thought she was waiting for a tall old man in a straw hat standing on the other side of the car with his shoulders kinda hunched up. But his feet didn't show.

Pretty sure my Wife has stood like that a couple times.

i found the rail cars in the background very interesting. i'm not familiar with what kind of rail car they are and what they were used for. they almost look like some sort of troop transport.

Unfortunately, I can not help you there, but the accompanying caption where I found the picture reads; 

 

Somewhere in New Mexico: 1956. On the road back to California from Florida, May 28, 1956. Cropped left side of image as it had the "end of roll" light leak. I'll bet the train was long enough for my dad to stop the car, get out the camera and have my mom pose.

 

 And just because I have it handy, the caption for the mechanic in coveralls picture,

 

June 1943. "Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Miss Natalie O'Donald, attendant at the Atlantic Refining Company garages." A Gibson Girl in coveralls. Medium format negative by Jack Delano for the Office of War Information.

The train looks like a work train for the crew that kept the track and other railroad property in shape. Just my guess.

Male brain again. There is just something about that bright white looking paint, the '50's housewife, and the way the ventiports stand out-

That screams kitchen gas range.
