Period Images to Relieve some of the Stress

Not particularly an old photo (2001), but a charming partially unrestored car and would be neat to see a photo of it as a new car.

Matt... still think prewar cars are hard to keep running? If a car can kick your ass, imagine what that giant chicken could do! 🤣

 

I can see it now.... after a day of touring in the chicken mobile with a bird suffering from excess output out the back end; Matt out in the shop would be yelling to Melanie in the kitchen for the barbecue sauce! 

 

Actually, my approach is somewhat more direct when dealing with misbehaving transportation appliances:

Coolidge at the Ludlow, VT station.  A nice Pierce for you P-A guys, with a special plate or tag.

Taft in front of the Equinox Hotel, Manchester, VT.  Another great Pierce.

FDR in a Pierce, 1934.  I wonder where the radiator cap went.... maybe the car was running hot, or one of the secret service guys provided protection for it.

There are a few words about this car in a Frank Sinatra song.

I remember when Don Williams sold this at Hershey 20 years ago.

Sept. 18, 1942, Lamb's Tavern.  Front to rear, Alec Ulmann, John Fetterolf, Sam Baily.  Sometime dual spares seem ok on smaller cars.

Another Revere. This is a portion of a fold out ( two 8x10’s ) of Reveres’ I have. I posted the left side earlier.

Actually, I think it has a radiator cap.  My 1929 Pierce had an archer-less cap, that was quite good looking: Not flat, it had slight uplift towards the center. If I recall correctly, it was a large cap, probably 5 inches in diameter. How I miss that car! Great picture.

The Ford Rotunda postcard is interesting, how about a large image?
