This is a photo of a photo (that's why it's distorted) of our 1940 Pontiac, it was the family car for many years. It was semi-retired in 1965.

At one point, it had home made dualies on the rear (fenders removed) and was used to pull a 6' disc in our little 3-3/4 acre orange grove in Florida!

Later it got a frame off restoration. Sadly those photos have been lost for years.

My grandfather's 27(I think) Essex. He would put a cage on the running board and thats where "Spot" his bull dog would ride. Neat guy, this was taken in Berkely, CA, he was a ferry boat pilot on the San Fran Bay till they built the bridges.

Second one is my Dad circa 1948 doing his best Clyde Barrow pose. I'll let someone else tell what the car is.

A couple more

The Essex again on a camping trip, my Mother and her sister (still going at 97) sitting on running board with Spot

Last one is me with Dad and his brand new 52 Buick. He would later roll this car, get ejected and walk away !!

Last ones, I promise

Dad's 54 Buick he bought after rolling the 52. The trans blew up in 58, so he bought a brand new 58 Buick. Shown here the day he brought it home. That car lasted till 63 when it got rear ended and totaled. He then bought a 63 Buick (that lasted till 68, he bought new 68 Buick, and totaled it next year), see a pattern here, both Buicks and wrecks?)

The '40 Pontiac went to my older sister after my Dad died. She actually did most of the work taking it apart and reassembling it after detailing. It had the flat 6 w/three on the tree. I cannot ever remember it not starting up and driving- it just didn't break down.

That '58 Buick is choice!

It was pretty, torquoise green. I still have seat material from it around here somewhere. Dad was 3-pack a day smoker and flicked a butt into the back seat while driving and set fire to the material. When it was repaired, they gave the extra material to my Mom who made matching pillows for the back seat

I've got several along with a few memories but my computer is down at the moment so I'll have to wait until my step-son gets here this evening and fixes it - - - "fingers crossed"

Brian, that pic is about the "coolest one" I've seen posted here in a long time.

Thanks, you know what, I didn't realize until just a year or so ago that my dad was a hell of a photographer! Honestly, I had never given him credit for the amazing family photos that he shot or set up, this being one of them.
