How about a picture of YOU with a car?

Recommended Posts

The 49 Ford F3 pickup came out of the last barn within the Chicago city limits and was a frame off restoration. I drove it twice then sold it because my back arthritis was cutting off the nerves in my legs and the cab was so cramped I was afraid I couldn’t get to the brake pedal. The  38 Studebaker was in a barn in PA for 42 years. Original paint, rebuilt mechanicals. I took it to the Indy track a few years ago. Ran 20 laps and never lifted!  

Thanks VL2 great thread.

My wife and I, hamming it up with the 57 Corvette basket case I dragged home in 1981.

About 4 years later, me and my oldest daughter, enjoying one of our first drives in the Corvette.

It was the first car I "restored". I've learned a lot since then....

These were taken in about 1988, when my youngest was about 4 years old. Sold the Corvette in 1991; I would like to have that one back...

@SC38DLS You are welcome and you get extra bonus points for including the pup in your pic. 👍

@95Cardinal My dad started collecting Corvettes when I wasn’t much bigger than your daughter in that pic. I have a special affinity for them, especially the C1’s. Wish I could get the ‘58 back, so I understand your loss. Thanks for restoring that beautiful ‘57!

A couple more. One in my 1957 MGA roadster (with my future 1969 Plymouth Valiant in the background) and one in my 1955 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer 2 door hardtop....

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

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.

That's me in the Studebaker pickup which was taken this year and in the '69 Skylark pic I'm on the right with a lot more hair than I have now.... :)

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!!!

@Billy Kingsley sorry to hear about loosing your dad. I know how rough that can be.

Great pics! I was able to rent a new Challenger R/T and another time a Camero. Both were a blast to drive, especially on rural interstate in TX. (Speed limit up to 85 MPH)

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.
