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.

Jim Bower Buick INC

Storefront dealership again.  I think I like the looks of this style of dealer the best.  Close to the street, a side walk out in front, almost like going shopping for a new car.   Notice the sign above the service entrance, "Tiger Eaters for 66".  That GTO ad slogan really hit the mark didnt it.  Everyone responded with a Tiger Eater.

Plymouth Super Bird

Rare car but not a rare sight.  A lot of these cars sat on the dealer lot for a long time.  Big wing, nose cone, and a hot running big block were not exactly what everyone was looking for.  Now they command big money, but like a lot of low production muscle cars, they were not loved much when new.

Auto parts counter circa 1960

If you walked into the town auto parts in 1960, this is probably what it would have looked like.

The Pill Wagon

No way this Jeep exists as the pill wagon today.  With all the pill heads today?

Wayne Motor Co. Stick City

Im guessing that every car at "Stick City" had a manual transmission.  I wish more people built Corvettes that looked like they really did back in the late 60s  Instead of flaring the wheel openings this guy raised the car to clear those big tires.
