licence plates on building

Recommended Posts

This is an attempt to transfer 8mm to video.

 

 

In the late 50's my father worked for Paul  Willet in White Plains NY..     Paul worked for GM but also had an auto body and upholstery repair shop in White Plains NY.

At some point Paul opened a car-hop drive in Yonkers NY  

My father always enjoyed taking 8mm film.

 

 Paul Willet , a license plate collector and GM road  salesman traveled thoughout the country looking for early licence plates

At some point Paul opened a car-hop drive in Yonkers NY  .  

He decorated the outside of his car-hop building with his "junk" plates.

According to my brother (as told by my father) after Paul sold the car hop business and building, he went back to take his plates off of the building.

The new owner said they were part of the building and he could not take them.

I have another clip if I can find it of my brother and I in one of Pauls  Model T fords . He also had a 1912?  Metz
