Accidental double exposure of the family '50 Special Sedanette; also a teenager's '37 Special getting some gear changes.

that double exposure is so cool! 👍

What no comments on the use of concrete blocks as jack stands 😲 

OK I’ll be the first, if you’re gonna use them  at least place them level and place in their designed orientation 😊

Re: the cinder blocks   Mea Culpa.   I was 17 at the time with a typical "what, me worry?" teenager attitude.  Looking back and I'm appalled too.  Working part time in a drug store at minimum wage while still in high school didn't give me much money to buy things that were needed.  The reason for the bad orientation would have been in consideration of the crush-abilty of the cinder blocks if they had been rotated 90 degrees. Working on soft soil wouldn't have made jack stands any safer.  Three months after this was taken I was in the Navy; when I returned I bought jack stands and resumed driving the '37;  by that time it had been painted.

That appears to be Then- President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) in a 1942 Buick.

The car seems modified somewhat to account for a wheelchair, and there is some sport of brace at his neck.

Could this be related to the Manhattan Project?
