Cute Pictures Of Your Kids, Grand Or Otherwise In Old Cars

Recommended Posts

Just in case there are those that do not know what a Futurliner is, here is a picture.

The only problem with a Futurliner is there are no windows for the passengers.

Well, then again there was one Roscoe C. "Fatty" Arbuckle who appreciated the finest of the fine cars of his era. Ever seen one of his great cars ? I am sure I am not alone among us who would gladly give up an ear, (left OR right), in exchange for one of 'em.


“Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle did have exceptional taste in cars - despite other shortfalls in his reputed personal behavior. 
 

During an AACA/HCCA Reliability Tour based in a Savannah, Georgia a few years back, we were privileged to visit a private collection for a coffee break, driving our 1915 Hudson SIX-40. Among the many excellent cars on display was this 1919 Pierce-Arrow 66 A-4 Tourer, belonging to Mr & Mrs Robert Jepson. The fantastic Pierce-Arrow previously had belonged to Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle. Our Hudson was nowhere near as elegant as the surroundings, but more than kept up with traffic.

@Marty Roth I have wanted to see that car in person from the moment I learned about it.

What a great privilege to have seen it in person.

Thank you Zephyr,

 

Among the many benefits of organized AACA/VMCCA/HCCA, and the many other organized marque club tours are invitations to visit private collections. We have, over the past 50+ years of touring, been invited to dozens of truly exceptional collections - some multiple times, such as the Bob & Sandra Bahre collection in Paris, Maine, featuring a grouping of custom-bodied 1934 V-12 Packards among many other fantastic cars - too many to name. 

 

The nice part is that we also get to tour with our children and grandchildren, and to expose them to so many varied normal, as well as exquisite examples.

The kids are the future of the hobby.

The Pierce Arrow Society has arranged many a private tour for amazing collections during their meets as well.

It's a wonderful privilege to see such great cars in a completely relaxed setting.

Well, who’d a thunk a kid would go from sitting on dad’s hood, to a grease monkey, then become an infamous Speed-Racer fan...

 

Dad did everything to get my brothers and I into old cars, but it only afflicted me. I kinda wish he kept the T-Bird, and I might like that Quarter Midget back too. But should I ever loose the memories it would be the worse loss of all...

Grandson Nathan loved the 1963 Impala convertible, as well as the 1978 454ci Suburban, but our 1951 F-6 Boardman Pumper / Ford Fire Engine excited him. Of course he treasured his own Ladder Truck. As seen here, we was ready to report for service. Fire Department-issued boots were too heavy and too tall for him to maneuver at that age, but Louisiana “Shrimper Boots”, locally known as:

“CAJUN REEBOKS”

saw him properly Turned-Out ! 
 

He also got to visit his great grandpa’s former Fire House.

As best as I could find this would be a walk through a Futurliner.

I got a chance to climb up into the seat of the one that Kindig restored one time when I was in Salt Lake city on a job.

Wish I had taken a photo.

It is a bit of a climb to the driver's seat!   And the people down there really do look like ants!!

Grandma just reminded me that Mateo also had this go at steering the '12 KisselKar a few years ago...

Mark Wetherbee, I thought I would clear up your photo a bit. I could not get it much better than that.

 

zCAM05647b.jpg.cc035f1a601d60f34626f86c3ac31625.jpg


Thank you! As you can imagine, the original was not the best quality and from the mid 60’s. that dark-light streak is probably from exposure to sunlight over the last 50 or so years.
 

I thought these were lost after my parents had both passed, but my brother had tripped across them and surprised me last September. 
 

Thanks to your work I now have a new avatar...

I took my two sons to many car shows and antique shopping back in Illinois. These pics are from the 1980s, back when short shorts were all the rage!

My grandson out for a spin with a good friend in his 1980 Shay. For those who may not be familiar, the Shay Corporation built these fiberglas '29 Model A recreations under license from Ford,  built on a full frame with a Pinto drivetrain, and sold thru Ford dealerships from about 1980-1984. My friend also has a '31 Model A Tudor and a '28 Model A Phaeton fully restored.

My 2 kids back in the mid 80's playing in what was  then our work truck. We hauled a lot of firewood with that.
