Saw this on Facebook and fellow hand colors, but unfortunately did not record his name.  A 1934 Auburn is on the right

Similar, but the hill isn't steep enough, sidewalks are too narrow, the road is too wide, and there are no half naked hippies walking around.

Does anyone have some period images of "Half-Naked" Hippies standing near some classic pre-war vehicles?

The plane is a Sikorsky S-40, one of three built for Pan American Airlines.  It first flew in 1931 and was the first plane that Pan Am called a Clipper.  It's said that Lindbergh looked at all those struts and wires and called it the Flying Forest.  It's hard to imagine that they persuaded people to buy tickets to fly in the thing.  I, by contrast, would go up in it in a heartbeat if I could ride up front!
