Our friends Beth and Dan invited us to their house for a cookout for Bill's 64th birthday on July 2nd. After dinner Bill took their son Daniel for a ride in the Mercedes. I think the grin sort of says it all. He thinks the car is really cool. Dan owns a black Buick Grand National.

My 16-year-old son with his 1983 VW Scirocco.

We've been working on this car together for a year getting it running. He's had visions of modifications, until a Scirocco expert from California looked the car over from top to bottom and said it was the best and most original 8v Scirocco he'd seen in 10 years. Now he's all about keeping it stock. He purchased an original radio, even. It goes to show how a non-parent can make a big impact on a young man's point of view (I guess that could be good or bad crazy.gif )

Here's one of my most cherished photo's from 1955.

That's me, sitting on the Driver's side fender (with some help from mom),

Don Kitchen's 1929 Franklin Model 135.

I think this is when my love for Antique Automobiles started!

I have 16 grandkids and 7 great-grandkids. Where we reside, there are just 7. (the others are all over the country) These 7 are part of our youngest daughter's family. They actually have 8, but the oldest is married and in the Navy. The other 7 range in age from 17 to 2 yrs old. They all LOVE the old cars! Here's kids turned loose in an old car museum!!

At 19, a lot of folks still consider me a "young kid," so here's yours truly in a Duesenberg (not mine...sadly).

Great photos and great families, all. West, you need to take a modern one of you sitting in the same place on the Packard, from the same angle.

Gret photos from all. It is nice to see the kids, grandkids and even small kids that are now old and big kids. West, it is great that the car is still in the family.

Keep posting.

So you're the one that owns that vehicle. I love seeing it when we come to Hershey. And the photo is great.

Come on folks, I know I have seen lots of photos in the past here on various forums of kids and old cars. Let's trot them out again in one place so that all can enjoy them. Or take some new ones to share.

I have a few great pictures of kids around antique cars and would like to share them in this thread. The Question is How do I put a photo in my post? Need simple instructions.

Thanks

OK, thanks for the instructions.

Here goes with an attempt to include a picture.

This is a picture taken at the AACA Florida West Coast Region

Show. I had my 1935 Ford Pickup (Barn find and AACA HPOF Reject) and my Bulldozer with a 1 HP B & S engine at the show when these two you guys came along and showed interest.

I encouraged them and their mother (also young) to enjoy our hobby.

Pretty good, Paul!

I resized the photo. You need to try and upload the first one again. Something went "Oh ha"! confused.gif

The first one was a GIANT picture, but I don't know why. What should I do before make that mistake again? (Second Try)

This picture is from our annual car show, held in the County's Historical Park among the 25 old buildings. We encourage people to come in period outfits of their cars (Pre 1960) This is always fun for the kids and grandkids to be part of the show. It also makes other kids interested in what we do.

Paul, you must have missed a step that time??

It's not bad having a large picture, just makes it hard to read the forum thread. You probably need a picture program to resize these pictures for them to be a more uniform size, unless one came with your computer. Probably wouldn't cost more than $30.00.

Easier way to do this is to right click on the file you want to reduce in the file explorer. Then select from the menu send to mail recipient. A dialog box wil come up asking what size. Pick 640X480 or another size. It will then generate an email in outlook with the reduce file as an attachment. Just copy the file attachement in the email to your desire file folder. Close the email. Picture reduced for free!

Please send me $30 laugh.gif
