If this doesn't relieve a little stress, nothing will. 😄

This Murphy Beverly has been Gold for years and years - it had whitewalls on it though until maybe 7 or so years ago.  The Blackwalls changed the car's looks in both photos and in person (though I am far from an advocate of blackwall tires - the blackwalls here have to do with being mounted on chrome wire wheels and the particular color of the car).

Sorry, old cars are for dogs. 

Hey Bob, to that I can only add that " a lot of old dogs here looking at this  like old cars too"

and yes I will admit that I am one of those old dogs. 😏

And one or two more , the sun is out here on long island , so all is good.

the car in the fog is a Derham bodied 1931 Franklin that was at the Chicago and NY salons in late 1930, location is Montauk Point at the very eastern tip of long island, ca. 1981 when AACA sponsored a Glidden Tour and that was primarily organized and run by Margaret and George Vitale that I helped out on a little. The period b & w photo is of an Auburn at Roosevelt Field airport , in Garden City, NY on long island . Enjoy everyone. I guess by now you realize I have to much old stuff.

A cool photo that I have not seen before !

 

Sidenote: Click on the photo and you should get an enlargement, then look real close at the top row of Hood Louvers - it spells out Auburn in the stainless trim (plus it has Auburn spelled out in paint over the ornament on the rear quarter panel and also over the Super-Charged emblem on hood - a well labeled car :)).

This was sitting on the desk, family member worked there during WWII. On a car, in an Aircraft factory on Long Island, so it is related. Bob

Bob, that is a really cool license plate topper of Republic airport! Never saw one before. They had those for Roosevelt Field too.

 

John, the Auburn photo was printed off an original negative that I was able to borrow 35-40 years ago. Photo was taken by a man named Drennan who was in the Hempstead/Mineola N.Y. area which was right next to the Roosevelt Field airport. Had to give the negative back and then the fellow that had it passed away so I guess it was tossed out as trash.

Yes, the name Auburn is noted all over the car as you observed.
