  1. My first job out of college was at Burndy Corp in Norwalk, CT. I was there 1961-1965. I attended the Ridgefield Meet once or twice during those years. Only recollection I have is of an ancient race car with the number 16 on the radiator. Folks, we are talking the LOUDEST CAR EVER CREATED BY MANKIND. WOW!!! Happy daze indeed.
  2. I'd also be interested to know if those buidings still exist in Endicott, NY. I can't be of much help in that regard as I live in Germantown, Tennessee, just east of Memphis. You are welcome regarding the sharing of the picture. Very nice of you to mention it.
  3. I agree. Any chance Mr. Keiser that the car just in front of the Chevy coupe is a ca.1935-36 Hudson or Terraplane?? C'mon, you da man!!
  4. 1934 Chevrolet with sidemounts and luggage rack. Also standard rumble seat. Picture taken at the Hotel Frederick in Endicott, NY. I’m a Chevy guy, so I will leave identification of the other cars up to the experts. To me, the car directly in front of the coupe has a Hudson feel to it. Enjoy.
  5. Extended careful loving usage. Actually, Pat and I just celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary. She still thinks I'm nuts. .
  6. When I was in high school, I dated a girl named Patina Martin.
  7. How about the 1950-1951 Lincoln Lido?. Legend has it that the car was named in honor of Lee Iaccoa, but Ive never seen any proof of that.
  8. Hey Nawlins. Y'all have a good one! Memphis.
  9. Very sad news. Knew him for 40 years. What a great guy.
  10. I can spend three days doing a "killer" detail job on my wife's car and she never says a word. 53 years. I guess "it is what it is".
  11. 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
  12. My favorite auto industry.person. His books are great.
  13. How about some song lyrics from the old daze? 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.
  14. I was proud to be an American on June 6, 1944. I am proud to be an American today. I will be proud to be an American until the day I die. Bill Martin, Germantown, Tennessee.
  15. Go for it Keiser, and keep us up to date. You da man!!
  16. 1934 Chevrolet Master sedan. Note the knee-action unit at bottom center of the photo. Whatta hit!!
  17. Best auto race I've ever seen!!!
  18. 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.
  19. Barney Oldfield?? I thought it was Tony Stewart of NASCAR fame.
  20. 1935 Chevrolet Master DeLuxe sedan (no trunk) or sport sedan (integral trunk). Probably the latter as they were much more popular.
