i thought it would be neat to try to post a "photo of the day" every day for 2013!!

feel free to add your own pics as well. I know MANY woodie enthusiasts have vintage or interesting photos

I believe that this photo was taken sometime in the early 1980's?

Fairly certain it was taken AT Hershey.

anyone know for sure..

JEFF, great idea! It'll be fun, maybe educational, while keeping this new forum active. Here's my first contribution.

Although today they're usually gussied up in bright colours, gorpy visors, and wide, wide whitewalls, most woodies in their time were work horses. In period street scenes and in the background of old movies, they were dull, dirty, and often had a ladder lashed to the roof. One of my all-time favourites is the bathtub Packard Station Sedan, 1948 through 1950, on the Standard Eight chassis only. No flippin' cormorant on the hood for these plus-size beauties.

Great idea, Jeff. Here's my Pontiac, picture taken in the 1970's, or 60,000 miles ago! Phil Stofanak[ATTACH=CONFIG]171133[/ATTACH]

WOODIE53, your photo didn't make it up. Let me know if you have trouble posting, I'll walk you through it.

I like how this thread is shaping up to be an Olde Timey photo drop. Keep 'em coming, people.

PLY-WOOD, the joke is on the junkyard - they wouldn't have got full scrap value for that half-wooden wagon. Hey, my inlaws live in Abbotsford. There's a dark blue '46-'48 Town & Country sedan stored in the parking garage of their condo buidling. Nice car, probably an older restoration. Do you happen to know the car?

I'm going to try this again. Here is a 1936 Chevrolet with a Campbell body from Maine.post-79192-143139324778_thumb.jpg

Have rarely seen another woodie in Abbotsford. I'm usually the only one in the local car shows. Would like to know who owns the one your talking about.

Heres another odd ball one. A woodie dragster. Dont know the year, but the sign says racing gas is 50 cents a gallon...

I think that Olds woodie is still around. There was an article on it in the Woodie Times not to many years ago.

As for the owner of the '36 Chevy woodie, contact me privately at stofpc@rcn.com and I'll send you his name. I don't want to put it out there just in case he is a little shy, which never happens with woodie people, right?

Now there's a cosmopolitan scene - notice how the American cars appear to drive on the righthand side of the street, while the English cars are on the left? Must have been chaos at rush hour.

I always love photos. Keep 'em coming.

Here's one that will bring tears to your eyes. Taken about 15 years ago in Southeast Iowa.

Dear Jeff,

He's a photo of me in high school hanging out with my buddies at the VFW Hall.

Imported from Buick Funnies over on the Buick - General forum:

Two Aggies buy a 1951 Buick woody and take it back to their shop and get to work on it. After working on it all day and night they take a step back and get a good look at what they have.

Then the first Aggie says to the second, "You know, I think it looked better before we took it out of the crate"

Maybe this will make up for the derelict Chrysler Town and Country I posted above. This one is in a little better condition. Photographed at Charlotte in 2008. I particularly like the matching kayak.

PHIL, what's the story behind that stretched woodie? Hotel car? Work crew carrier? Rich family with too many kids?
