FLASHBACK FRIDAY

This is my Dad in his new car some time in the 1940's before he and my Mom got married.He was very proud of this car. It's kind of hard to see but he has a BIG SMILE on his face! Look at all the old cars in the background also.

I'm joining Flashback Friday at Seaside Simplicity

  1. Wow Sandy, that's a great picture. Back then people took such pride in getting a car and they usually had it for years and years. Those were such simpler times.

    Thanks for coming by

  6. That's when cars were built like tanks and didn't crumble like the "plastic" ones of today! What make is it, do you know? And wow, look at those white walls! Thanks for sharing, Sandy!

  9. I clicked on the car and enlarged it - you can really see his happy smile! And his car has an outside visor or awning over the front window. I've never seen that before!

  13. So cool Sandy and he sure looks happy to be in that car. My dad had a similar car but the only photos I've found of it were after he rolled it! Thanks for sharing this one at Flashback Friday :)
