    That is a neat ride. How come the one in the back of the truck looks orange? Same car or was there more than one?

    I think that’s just the photograph, but it does appear orange in that shot.

    Nice looking Plymouth. Makes me wonder in the next 10 to 15 years who is going to want them? I am at the tail end of the baby boomer generation and to be honest I do not have much interest in the the cars from the 30’s or 40’s. OK maybe a black 32 steel body Ford Rod with a nice flame paint job and huge blower might get me going.

    Great point, it does seem like the Street Rod movement is tapering off. Muscle Cars are continuing to increase in popularity. We just try to keep ’em all on the road!

    This is a shot my Dad took on the Hot Rod Power Tour back in 2000 in Hackberry, AZ, on Old Route 66.

    Now that’s one cool picture. Could’ve been taken back in the 60s and you’d never know the difference. Great shot!

    This 83 year old Grand Lady has been together with United States throughout many events of their history. She was once lost as spare parts and now is found and is being restored to her former glory. She has been though a lot of good and bad times – World Wars, The Great Depression, First Man to the Moon, and 911 to say a few. If she could speak, I’m sure she would tell you some wonderful stories! The V8 Speed and Restoration Team is rebuilding her from front to back and then some with loving care. Once the team is done she should last for many more years to come. She will soon be going to Plymouth Massachusetts to see the place where she was named after. This will be one of her great experience’s. She will be passed down to the next generation that I’m sure will enjoy to be with her, in her travels throughout history. Just think maybe one day her engine might run off of compressed air tanks, stored beneath her floor boards!

    Holy cats… what a cool shot! Let’s hope she uses AAA to change tires these days, but love the fact she did it on her own!

    Cool pic for sure! Did your Dad take it while she was getting her hands dirty? Notice how the bumper is at an angle with respect to the car shell, a lot of flex going on. Jack is near its limit and tire looks like it’s still on the ground.

    That was 2 years before she met my dad. He came home from Korea, Crew Chief of a B29 BTW.

    Those bumper reinforcements were basically leaf springs and designed to flex. There is a lot to go on that old bumper jack! She took the strain of the lug nuts before loosening them.

    Come on! You knew that! :whistle:
