I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

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?

You can't get anything by "eagle eye" Lamar! 😁

 

Here's an example where it's a little harder to tell:

It appears to be the collar of a two star general sitting beside FDR.

It indeed appears to be that, but the shadow it casts on FDR's shoulder seems to indicate that the object may be something else, or at least not being worn as a collar by another person. Note that there appears to be something like a cord attached to it leading to the center of the windshield frame. Perhaps the military in WW2 hung rank insignia from their rear view mirrors, inspiring the post war fuzzy dice craze.

Looks to me a two star general, ,maybe Air Force, is sitting close behind FDR wearing a helmet. The uniform collar is aligned with the rear view mirror and you can see a uniform patch on the left soldier shoulder. Everyone is looking to the sky, perhaps a military air display. The only thing I can’t pick out is the no filter? Cigarette brand!

my two centavos!
