Great pic! Daddy's helper! I had some helpers back when too; mine were girls.....had 4 daughters. Here's 3 of them at a very young age standing in front of my very first total rebuild-a '55 Buick Special. It was green and white, but I changed the colors after I replaced the smashed front end. I re-did all the upholstery, too, in red and white with a red/gold metalflake dash! When my daughters got a bit older, they were always helping me work on cars, as was my wife, too! She still does, and she's 70! I guess it keeps us young!

Here are a few home movies and images from 1956 that I put in a video on Youtube. If you like old Pontiacs then you will really like this, if not it is still neat!

I wish that I had a slide scanner. I have a slide of my son

standing on the drivers seat of my 62 Corvette "steering" taken when he was about 2 years old. I let him drive it for the first time when he was 15. I let him drive it by himself with his girlfriend when he was 19. He is 22 now and does not know it yet, but the car will be his 25th birthday gift, with the stipulation that he keep it and pass it down to his son when he is 25. I would like to be around to see those pictures.

Try to get that slide scanned & posted, would be neat to see. Here is my grandson about 1 1/2 yrs ago. I am hoping my Reatta will become his someday. He likes "Gandad's Atta".

Not as young as the little tykes, but here is me with my first car at 16 years old. 1931 Dodge Brothers DH 6 business coupe. Still got it. Then me at 55 with my second 1931 DB DH6.

You should be able to get the slides put on a CD and then be able to download them to your computer and then post them here.

If this works, here is a collage of pictures we have been taking since 1998. There are actually a few more recent years that are not included. I wanted to have an unchanging object so you could see the change in the kids. I take this shot every Easter.

The kids are Michael born 1990, Matthew born 1993, McKenna born 2000 (and a week old in one shot) and a Model T Centerdoor Sedan born 1920.

Notice that the car is still in the restoration stage in the first shot.

Enjoy.

John

What a great idea and family history around your vehicle! This will be treasured by those kids long after you are gone from this earth and will be shown to the future generations.

This is a recent shot of my son Karl and my Grandson Dane in my 28 Pierce. Unfortunately it was in its usual spot in the garage, working on that.

We had several nice days in late Nov and early Dec this year here in SE Wyoming. I found it necessary to test drive some of the antique autos that I attend to. I like to have kids ride along some times because the kids nowdays have little knowledge of the vehicles of yesteryear. They enjoy the fun that goes with it, too! Here are a few pix of those activities:
