Not to worry, I bet Peter G. or West could fix that easily. smile.gif

It is a great photo and one day she and your wife will be glad you took it regardless of her outfit.

I love it, K8069....looks like she just outgrew the tricycle in the background and is ready to take on the Packard. Who needs training wheels? Better get an extra set of keys!

Thanks! I misunderstood your first reply; I thought you meant it was better to have the kids SIT in the car rather than go for rides. My mistake! Yes, kids never forget these old car episodes! smile.gif

I say take the kids whenever possible. In my coupe, I always make sure that the windshield is cranked open all the way so the kids get the full effect of the "old car" experience. Along with the open cowl vents, this insure that they get the aroma of the old flat head doing it's job.

Here is a shot from 1982 of my beautiful daughter, Rhiana in my 63,000 original mile 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer 2-door hardtop. I don't usually name my cars, but I called this car "Neopolitan" because it's colors reminded me of the triple flavor ice cream. Those seats still had the plastic over them protecting the original Jaquard upholstery. It had the 270 Super Red Ram Hemi with the automatic shifter coming out of the dashboard. What a beautiful rolling ride that car was.

Here's a photo taken in 1988 of my sweet boy, Jonathan in my $200.00 1970 Plymouth GTX 440 four speed hardtop.

Two of my three kids in a 1933 American Austin roadster. The driver, just 14 last week, will be the owner by his next birthday, if he helps on the restoration.... which I am hoping he will do.

Cute car and even cuter kids. Your son will be the envy of all his friends when that car is restored.

This here is the first granddaughter about 11 months First Picture. You can never start them too young.

The second was about a month ago while she was riding the 150 wild horses!

The third was helping pawpaw to paint the frame with pretend paint.

wk's_old...I especially like the part that shows the car's shadow cruising along the side of the road.

Anyone else got any movies like Wks Olds?

I think I can get these up in the Philly Lobby to show everyone.

I was glad that my granddaughter turned the camera at the shadow; it shows the silhouette of the car. A good touch.

I took my 14 year old grandson for a ride in the '22 Stutz today. He hasn't been able to be involved much with the old cars because he has been catching up on his school work. He was under restrictions, but he's caught up now. Here's a video of me explaining to him how I remidied the valve lifter sticking problem. Then in the 2nd video, we took a short ride.
