409 I think

Someone was having a little fun with this Impala picture.  427 FE under the hood?  Explains the parachute on the back.

Litten Motors, 1965

Back when I started this blog, I mentioned that Litten Motors was the reason why I went looking for these yearbook pictures.  Litten is the dealer that sold my 65 F85 442, and my car sat in this showroom before it was sold.  The two photos I found were from 1964 and 1966.  The 1965 yearbook was not online.  So I called the East Liverpool OH library and they had a copy.  A few days later I had a scan of the page with Litten.  Unfortunately my car was not out front or in the window.  A 55 Chevy was out front, and they were too lazy to move it. Oh well, at least I know what the dealer looked like when Lawrence Serafy walked in and purchased my car back on January 8th 1965.

69 Camaro

Wonder how those dents got in the roof, trunk and hood of your Camaro?

Keystone Kusto-Mags

A peek inside a 1960s tire shop.  Notice the two styles of Raders behind the Keystones.

Wilson Pontiac Cadillac GMC

I do believe Wilson was Ace Wilson, as in Royal Pontiac fame.  This dealer was located in Birmingham MI.  Up Woodward Ave from the Royal Oak area.

The Fossil

There are more pictures of this Anglia on the web, at the drag strip.  Owner was Walt Orr, and apparently he also owned a Shell gas station.

Tiger in your Tank

Having a Tiger under the hood, putting a Tiger in your tank, and eating Tigers were big ad campaigns back in the day.  This gas station even painted their service car up as a tiger to advertise their gasoline.

Split Window Coupe

Is there another car besides the 63 Corvette that is known by the term "split window coupe"?

Hot Rod Pinto

By 1971 Bill Corwin had surrendered to the gas sippers and featured this gem.  In reality these cars sold really well.  Bill even jazzed this one up with some sweet wheels.  Okay enough of this, its still a Pinto.
