Re: Vintage picture thread

I sure am enjoying all the photos you guys are sharing. Can I slip in my old '78 Silverado? That thing was a great truck (Mahoghany paint/Buckskin interior,454,posi,loaded to the gills),but I sold it to buy a '71 Blazer.

Re: Vintage picture thread

No trucks in this one. I took it around 1968 or 69, just a kid trying to be creative with the camera. My dad's '61 Impala in the driveway and the neighbor's '63 in the background.

I remember them. That was when the trash man had to get out of the truck. We also had a milkman when I was a kid. I loved it when I actually caught the milk truck. I would run out and get chocolate milk from him.

Re: Vintage picture thread

This is at the site of the original 'Widowmaker' hill in Utah. Most people are surprised to learn that there was a motocross track there and that for a time it was on the AMA World Cup tour (or whatever it was called at the time). For some reason, they got Evil Knievel to come do a promotion, and this is him, on a Harley, on a motocross track. This was in 1975, I would say.



For those of you familiar with Salt Lake, check out how much has changed in 35 years. All that open space is houses now, and where this picture was taken is now someone's living room.

On the west coast we had the "Helms Bakery truck" ( like the Good Humor Ice Cream man-both in early 50's Chevies and GMCs), a daily delivery of fresh bread, rolls and dognuts!

Re: Vintage picture thread

My aunt gave me these 2 pictures from my grandmothers stash. I am the one sitting on the my dads '69 corvette. Must be maybe '76 I was 2. The other picture I am think is my brother about 1978. My old man still has those cars, I miss them more then him. I am sure his new wife will sell them before we get them.

I remember the ones on the photo vividly, as I had to drag them to the curb and back every week.

Oh, man...I remember the Helm's truck. An early 60's Suburban panel painted yellow with blue lettering. A striped blue awning on the back over the barn doors. The driver would stop out front and open the rear doors, behind them were drawers that slid out with glass tops displaying the doughnuts, eclairs, pies and other goodness. The truck has some kind of musical horn that sounded like chimes to alert the housewives it was coming down the block.

Memories!

Re: Vintage picture thread

I still use an ash can or metal trash can for my aluminum cans. It was here at my house when I bought it in '86. It was all beat up (from trash men tossing it),so I used it for the light duty job. I have to set the lid down on the can with one hand while I hit just the right spot on the side of the can and the top pops on nice and snug.

Re: Vintage picture thread

And Schlitz hats! Never had one of those. But,my best friend named his German Shepard Schlitz.Can't imagine why. He later became a Budweiser drinker but didn't get a dog to name Bud.
