  1. Back in 1989, my then twelve year old son Mike made a sketch of Lee Iacocca. Pretty good likeness. So Mike sent it to Mr. Iacocca. See Mr. Iacocca’s reply attached. Today, Mike is a top Oncologist in the Memphis area. Bill Martin Germantown, Tennessee

Ford, Ford Henry Ford He is the working man’s friend His car is a treasure Makes walking a pleasure We wish him success to the end Although it’s a flivver It’s good for the liver We’ll pay no more room or no board If it goes on the blink Shove it under the sink It’s a dandy garage for a Ford. No idea where this gem originated. I’m a Chevy guy. My wife thinks I’m nuts.

  8. I fully agree with Keiser. I have two sons and a grandson. I'd give any one of them my auto hobby complele, right down to my tools. No interest at all.
  9. Barney Oldfield?? I thought it was Tony Stewart of NASCAR fame.
  10. 1935 Chevrolet Master DeLuxe sedan (no trunk) or sport sedan (integral trunk). Probably the latter as they were much more popular.
  11. Just got a phone call...AND...the chrome bead around the windshield is missing.
  12. Chevrolet introduced the 1934 Standard series (DC) sedan in October 1934. This was very late in the model year. They advertised this car heavily. The postcard I have shown here was part of that advertising blitz. Look closely and you’ll see that this photo is actually a 1934 Master series (DA) sedan, that was retouched to show Standard features: (1) the headlights are shown as black (not chrome), but are Master in shape, (2) the rear quarter windows are shown as one piece (no wing windows), (3) not sure about the hubcaps, they are Master size but appear as painted, (4) the back is essentially flat. That means the spare tire was removed and also the integral trunk, if this was indeed a “sport sedan”. There may be other “tells”, but that’s what I see. Special note to Bob Swanson: The term “Mercury” was used to describe the 1933 Standard series, but there is no record of Chevrolet themselves ever actually using it. True…you will find use of the term in many, many books and articles… but never in Chevrolet literature. I’ve seen it on boxes of aftermarket parts. Bill Martin
  13. Can you identify this Chevrolet? Take your time with this one guys. Not as obvious as it might seem. Let’s go for year, series and model.
