Period images to relieve some of the stress

I have no clue as to location of the truck, nothing written on the print which was made later from an original. The later print I have has to be 40 years old .

And its a 1941 Champion 'Delux-tone' two door sedan to boot!

The DUAL TRIM STRIPS,

lack of trailing support separating the wind wing from the driver's window,

overall shape, and no running board, along with rubber shield on leading edge of rear fender,

tend to make this a 1941 Studebaker Champion

I believe there were three of these on Phantom II "Special Newmarket" bodied cars, and an additional   1 on Phantom I and 1 on Silver Ghost.  The Silver Ghost is for sale and we have a thread here:

 

 

 

Below is one of the other two Special Newmarkets (distinguishable by the skirted fenders and currently being guarded by Ed).

On the Duesenberg tour right now..........but yes, I will confess that I am currently the guy who cleans the dirt off the bottom of the car when it’s driven through puddles. We regularly drive it. If a fantastic machine, and I have been lucky enough to help show it at Villa d’Est in Italy. Driving it extensively around the Italian Alps was, quite simply one of the highlights of my working career.

Does this relieve stress or just cause it?

Causes it of course !

 

She has the wrong heals on to be doing that. Plus, she's going to ruin the paint on that fence and it'll be sure to create more work for the home owner...

I can't take credit for these - just passing them on.

 

It is a sobering thought all of these photos are over 60 years old....

If you want to know what the rest of the car looks like.   EDIT:   I should have pointed out it is a 33/34  Mercedes 380 Cabriolet A.  It is supercharged, but no "K" and no pipes.

Makes my knees ache in sympathy for the rider in this photo.  The hill climb shown is not something a Model-T Ford would have been able to accomplish -- unless it was driven backwards.

A couple of photos posted on a local facebook page by the then owner of the 1930 Talbot 90. He sold it 36 years ago so the photos probably date from the early 1980s. They are not 'period' but do show some local scenery, and 'camaraderie' amongst old car owners. The other car is a 1924 Vauxhall 30-98 Wensum tourer. The owner passed away a few years ago but his wife is now in her 90s and the little guy in the back seat has the car now - currently awaiting a rebuild.

 

The third photo I added to show how the Vauxhall owner drove his car hard. It was taken at a hillclimb in Dunedin in January 1984 - taken by my then girlfriend - later wife -  as I was competing in the event myself. The primary reason for the loss of traction was the 'bovine guano' on the road -

1930 Studebaker Light Six, purpose-built van for servicing Pennzoil signs (not for servicing vehicles).

It is not a Light Six. Studebaker hadn't used that model name since 1924. It has the same radiator and headlights as my 1929 - 1928 built - Dictator third series Model GE. In this part of the world this model was sold as a Director but I still consider it a Dictator. That photo is from June 2020 during the 400 mile drive home after we bought it. Why drive it home? Because our two vehicles and trailers were full of the spare parts car and engines and other parts.

Great description! well stated. That also describes many of the comments here as well when the "experts" who need to be heard about any and all subjects just can't resist stating what they know or think they know - maybe, sort of.... . 🙃

Another one from the same spot. The car a new-at-the-time replica of a 1957 F1 Ferrari -

I'm sure we'd all like to see what this would look like colorized and without the whitewalls if anyone can do it...

Ask Richard Quinn.

 

He has had some other vintage Studebaker factory photos blinged up in color by Patty at 'Imbued With Hues'  She does a wonderful job.    Colorizing old photos esp Studebaker some samples - Studebaker Drivers Club Forum

Late '50s Corvette concept car. Apparently driven in an episode of Route 66 by - the now late - Lois Nettleton.

This picture was taken at the GM Technical Center in Warren Michigan.  It is looking south east from the Mound Road side of the Tech Center, south entrance.  The building in the background is the GM Design Staff Studios.  One of the ponds is just behind the line of trees.

Me and my girl wet sanding my 54 Ford in 1960. Don't know where the Ford ended up but i still have the girl............Bob

This photo makes me think of two things:

 

1. Kids & grand kids have no idea how cool their parents/grand parents were a long long time a go.

 

2. I wish I had a photo of my girlfriend sitting where the motor was supposed to be on my Shelby wire brushing the frame.

Since I'm one of the 2 or 3 Hollywood Graham guys on the forum I 'll post this.     Unless I posted it before, never published.   1951,  Studebaker proving grounds.

 

Looking at the spot light and the outside pipes,  I need to ask my dad if he owned it.

Back to the Black & White - Dashboard is of a 1938 Nash, Publicity photo issued by Nash as part of their PR Press kit. The lady was not listed as a factory accessory that went with the car....

The photo of the engine I believe is of an L29 Cord in the Weymann bodied coupe that I posted some earlier views here someplace several months ago. Photo was taken some time in the early 1950s (if it is that car) when located in Brooklyn, NY and owned by author and model builder Herb Lozier.
