Pic of my 79 under restoration, best pic I could find, will have to get a better shot next time Im in the shop. Body and paint all finished, front suspension about done. Misc. int. pieces finished, just about ready to start putting things together, and get the motor built.

Here is one of my then girlfriend in the Model A circa 1979. We were married in 1983 - it will be 37 years in August

Some recent posts seem to getting off topic:-   How about a picture of YOU with a car?

Hi all! I often find myself imagining what a lot of you look like and I’d assume you do also. It’s always nice to put a face to a name.

 

Since most of you don’t have a photo of yourself for your avatar, I was wondering if you’d do me a favor?

 

Would you post a photo or two, of you with an old car? You could describe a little about the car’s history, for example, is it yours or someone else’s, if yours how did you acquire it, how long ago, etc. you could share a bit about yourself too. If you just want to post a pic, that’s fine too. Please, don’t be camera shy!

Your good reminder will keep the topic interesting.

Discussing lengths of shoelaces, or recipes for chicken

cacciatore, or sapsucker feathers, or how wallabies growl,

is best left for other threads.  (I'm exaggerating!)

There is a separate topic, too, for pictures of children and grandchildren.

 

Victoria Lynn's idea, to know each other better and

to put a face with a screen name, is a good one.

Kerry, car pictures aren't offensive!

I think it was a friendly reminder to EVERYONE.

 

I know what you mean.  I was a car-club newsletter editor

for years, and took pictures of everyone else.  I don't have

many car pictures of myself.

Kerry,

I don't find your post offensive at all. I am not a photogenic person most of the time too.

Yours truly piloting a super-rare 1957 Dodge Kingsway Custom Convertible Coupe (real, not chopped), a Chrysler Export Division model 

bought new off the showroom floor in Havana and still owned by the same family. It has always been a private car, never used as a taxi,

and the Kingsway still has its original 301cid V-8 and 2-speed PowerFlite automatic transmission, fairly unusual for a Cuban survivor.

This was at the end of the XVth Rally Regularidad Copa Castrol, hosted by the Club de Autos Antiguos -  A lo Cubano, held December 1, 2019.

And yes, in the background is one of four Continental Mark II coupes known to still be on the island, formerly owned by Marta Batista,

the wife of the deposed dictator Fulgencio Batista. The Rally is staged each year in the parking lot of the Tropicana Nightclub,

and the '56 Mark II C56D2784 did not compete in 2019, but is parked at the club's mirrored entrance for this photo.

It's been modified with a 1970's Ford V-8 - I leave my judge's cap at home and just appreciate the 24/7 car show that is La Habana.
