Vintage America

Postby Chris H » Sun May 20, 2012 5:38 pm

this is on another forum I go on, for some reason I never found it until recently.

Its amazing, theres thousands of great pics

http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/show ... p?t=428585

Its all in there, cars, engines, boats, planes, past and present comparisons, animals, bad fashion.

All I can say is that I wasted hours and hours looking through it all.

I spend as much time as I can in the Southern States driving the County roads and believe me there are some exceptional sights to see. I once came across a wrecking yard (scrapyard to us) in Georgia, fairly near Savannah that only dismantled old fire trucks - I was in fireman heaven! 8)

Many thanks for posting the link, its been too long since I visited that web site and I've added it to my bookmarked list.

My favourite so far -

Let me have a punt at that off the top of my head... REO, as in speed wagon, whence the name of the band and founded by the same guy who gave his name to Oldsmobile (recently defunct GM brand and manufacturer of the moonbuggy, no less...)

Not seen anything like this before. Nice find :)

Just spent the last 3 nights looking through this thread and still only on page 185. I think this will take me until 2015 to get through.

I am hooked to the thread and so fay have reached page 950.

I am amazed at how many pictures are of places I have been and how close some of my pictures are to the old pics.

Great pics and awesomely alike :D :D

The last one of the Brooklyn bridge reminded me of the story my mum (who lived in NY) told me about the night she and a few hundred others had to walk across it due to a massive power blackout in 1965.
