How about a picture of YOU with a car?


Recommended Posts

Guess I'll jump in here with our two "Baby's" and me on a Sunday afternoon, when there is no car show.

Just got back from a 70 mile ride on the 525 KTM EXC.

 

Living large on the continental divide............

The Polaroid should give an idea of age.

Trophy dash win, The little girl is the trophy girl, three blonds are my daughters and the brunette is a best friend.

The kids first jobs were in the concessions at the track.

I can't find any pictures of my wife with my cars... she jokingly refers to them as the "other women".... but I do have a neat picture of my kids ( they look really enthusiastic ) and a current one as of yesterday where my daughter made a surprise visit !

Angeles Crest Highway, around 7:30 am, couple of weeks ago.

Did the same  +/-170 mile run today accompanied by a friend in his hot rodded ‘30 A RPU. We took off around 5:30 am and got back little after Noon.

Me and my 1929 Ford 150-a, one of the first six built. This was ten years and 60+ more pounds (on me!) ago.

BTW I sold the 1914 Ford Touring to “Old Car Fudd”  (pictured in an earlier story on this thread) three years ago.....the only car in my life I regret selling! Second picture is me this spring with my 1913 Runabout which I brought home after a 30 year slumber.

This is me at the Lincoln & Continental Owner's Club Eastern Meet in Poughkeepsie, NY, in September of this year.

Me at the Classics on the Hudson at Marist College, also at Poughkeepsie NY, in May of this year.

Me with Edsels at Rhinebeck, 2014

This one is a favorite, me and my dad (in the red shirt) at Gaslight Village in Lake George, NY, in 1991. My brother looking at us in the foreground with his back to the camera, my mom took the shot. (By the way, for those of you who go to the Hemmings Concours in Lake George, it is held on what used to be Gaslight Village; this section seen here has been filled in and is now the large walkway leading to Route 9 / Canada Street. Prospect Mountain is in the background here but our camera was not good enough at the time to capture it)

This one is very special, it's the last photo ever taken of my dad. Taken September 9th, 2001, in Lake George, NY, at the Adirondack Nationals. In February 2002 he lost his battle with cancer.

and finally, some humor...

Me trying unsuccessfully to get into a new Camaro at the New York International Auto Show in Manhattan in April this year

Not my car and I included Ed so I would look more handsome.   I couldn't find anything with just me.

 Mat Harwood is correct but It does not even have white walls, driving lights, spot lights or wind wings to dress it up some!!!

I do not have a recent photo of me and my car. I hope to one day have my 1931 Reo Royale Victoria on the road. 

Here is picture of my 1926 Reo T6 Sedan about 1986 ?

Great topic Victoria Lynn and a good way to see who I have been communicating with over the years.

Even though some of these guys look very suspicious.

I know, right? 👍 I’ve met Keiser and Jack, so I kind of had an idea about what to expect. 🤣 A few others are friends on Facebook, so I’ve seen their pictures before.

 

I’m glad so many are participating, even people I haven’t seen post before. Here’s to hoping the thread continues to be used in the future. I enjoy seeing  what everyone looks like, past and present, and their cars also.

Can't be to many blue Tuckers on the road and was wondering if you would know if that blue Tucker ever had an electric banner sign in the back window telling people that they had just been passed by a Tucker?

Nice Digger Roger, interesting to see it's evolution.

 

Here a couple of my Ford Small Block Digger with Packard trans in about 1970. Sold in 1973, and in 2013 with the new owners touches, turbocharged. New owner still has it and the M&H's on it are the ones I put on it "back in the day".

Me on my Mom's 48 Nash coupe which became the car I learned on.  Me in 1966 with my 36 Studebaker coupe and a couple years later with the 37 I now have pictured at her home.

The 36 is now in the Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, SD.

Great thread and watch for a new feature on this site to talk about your cars in depth.  Here is my entry.  1908 Model X, one of two known in the world, the brown hair is a dad giveaway that this picture was before I took the job at AACA! :)

Here's a couple more from "Day One" (with my PB Roadster).

Clearly it was a Happy Day and beginning of a lifelong (30 years and counting) relationship.

P.S. Not that I'm very photogenic (see above) or in many pictures with my car(s), but if anyone cares, there's a couple of more on the thread "Long distance driving/traveling with vintage cars" I started few months ago, right after joining this forum (Sorry, I don't know how to provide a direct link from here).

And while there, if anyone has contributions related to thread subject, please share.
