How about a picture of YOU with a car?

Recommended Posts

These photos were taken by another local AACA member as I was leaving our monthly Cars and Coffee a few months ago.

And me in 1977 with a parts car I bought for $100 that I got a full winter's use out of.

I just discovered that I don't actually have any pictures of myself with an old car - so here's a couple of our cars and a picture a few days before my retirement earlier this year.  In my previous life I always said that I had a face for radio and a voice for print.  If any of you find yourself in downtown Innerkip, Ontario stop in and I'll introduce myself in person.  Don

I’m on the left. AJ is on the right(alsancle). And the famous Tom (terrific) Laferriere is in the center. Taken on the 18th green at PB.

Here are a few I dug up,  sold the Cosworth this year at Hershey, as you can see I am just too big of a guy for too small of a car!

I here my picture is in the next Antique Automobile so no point over exposing.  But here are  my present interests that are a 1912 Canadian T I bought from the original family a 1915 T plus the 1930 Cadillac I restored myself and a great driver at that  . Plus one of my 11 month old grandsons in his latest ride.

Here I am in the garage after delivery of my parts car. Left to right: 2015 Fiat 500, 1959 Fiat Granluce 1200 (being restored), the parts car for the the '59, and my '67 Fiat Giardiniera. Folks love the slow moving vehicle sign!

 

Oh, let's not forget the pair of 1966 Honda CA160s with custom luggage racks.

Ok, I'm in ....

 

1963 ... the family with our 1927 Auburn, two years after dad bought it from the original owner.  I'm on the left.

 

1978 ... delivering my bride to our wedding.  My siblings did likewise in the 70s.

 

2017 ... Taking Dad for his last ride in this car.  He and the Auburn were both registered in December, 1926.

 

2017 ...  taking my grandkids in a parade,.  Same car, same jackets.

 

2019 ... some things don't change: same wife, same car.

Now you tell me you can have people standing in front of an old car, I did find a couple pictures though.  

  First one is from 1999 with my siblings (I'm second from the left), taken at the farm where my Father grew up near Speers, Saskatchewan with my first old car that I bought in 1983 when I was 19, it's a 1937 Terraplane.

  Photo #2 is a couple years ago with Dad's (ours ?) 1915 T touring, when we were a one 'T' family.

Tough to find pictures I have not already posted. Harder yet with me in them. I think the one in Solvang, CA with the '27 has been on forum already. Those with the '24 in Seattle are new.

 

As most know, and certainly some do not, I have had the '24 for 30 years, the '27 for 6. They are unrestored originals, though the '24 was repainted decades before I bought it. The old Cadillacs run quite well, and I feel very lucky to still be able to drive them. Lucky also to have found the '24 on the other side of the country in Hemmings after looking for only about 3 years. I am picky, and originality is important to me. I call the '24 the "Summer Car". The closed sedan, the"Winter Car " took a search of over 20 years to find. Craigslist, just under 200 miles from me. This one has not been repainted, and true to its purpose, has an extremely effective factory heater. It is of the exhaust heat exchanger type, and set the original owner back about $40, perhaps equivalent of around $800 in 2019 bucks. I do particularly love  Nickel Era cars, and again, luck is on my side. I can have the two complimentary Cads for the price of one, had they been just a few years newer, or if, older, back in the Brass Era.   -    Cadillac Carl

I have absolutely no pictures of myself with cars. Here's a picture of my daughter and me from a couple of years ago, though...and I'm wearing a shirt with pictures of motorcycles on it. Also included is a picture of my wife and me in Denmark this year (25th anniversary.)

I guess it is a good idea to put the one with the wife and the car as well

In the first pic we picked up a couple friends and headed to Stevens Point for ice cream on a hot Sunday afternoon in 2018.

The second photo (taken 5-6 years ago) is delivery day of the 1919 Model T Touring I had.

No boos from me!

 

Lots of great pics. I’m out of “likes” for today according to the forum. 

 

I think this is my all my all time favorite thread. Love seeing pics of all y’all. Thanks for your posts. :)

The first picture is me in 1974. I had borrowed my friends 1911 White 40hp for a car run. After that I had to have a brass car!

The second pic is me working on my 34 Dodge convert. in about 1976. I had just got it. the 3rd pic is the Dodge in 1985 on the set of the movie Natti Gann. Still have the Dodge and it looks the same!

The 4th pic is my 12 Oakland 40 that I restored from junk from 1976 to1987. We were on tour in about 2007.

The last picture is from this summer. I'm standing in front of my 1914 Premier 6cyl. Big, powerful car. A real hoot to drive.

Still have all those cars and maybe a few more!

Ken

When my wife runs across pictures of me like this, she says I should get in shape.  I tell her I’m already in shape - round is a shape ...

Out for a swim and a drive while visiting some Amphicar friends in New York a few years ago. Wife can’t swim but has tolerated the hobby for 30 plus years. She is much more at ease cruising in the 55 Pontiac.
