Allee thanks for the award!
Did anybody else have a presto hot dogger?
You just can't beat a wiener on the water without...okay I'm going to stop right there, that guy's smirk is creepy.
About 25 years ago my Dad's second wife bought us one of those electric wiener cookers for the holidays.
It actually ran electricity through the wieners to cook them. The reason I remembered that is I wondered if this is electric powered or gas.
Thanks for the award! Maybe a field trip to Sacramento is in order. Something tells me there might be other kitschy attractions there. I'm flying in Monday night and will be there Tuesday so maybe I can scope out the place if I get a little time or it's not too far outta da way.
I can't figure out how to copy and paste the special pix of Star Streak II, so please go to the link and enjoy the show.
Oh I just repeated my self in a non linear fashion.
Anyhoo, watch for another post with a possible special photo of the second one.
All mentions on the internet say it's in the California Auto Museum in Sacramento. As it turns out, I will be in Sac next Tuesday, and if I have time I'll stop by. Somebody said a few years later the same guy that custom built this built another one that looks more like an Eldorado.
But wait, there's more...the guy built a second one...
Is that a wall a/c unit?
The phone is great.
I would love to see the view behind the curtain!
Cool, I can see this in Palm Springs too.
Be still my heart, jealous, jealous, love it.
I would be worried about it getting greasy and smoky!
All I can think of is how the stars of "Toddlers and Tiaras" must dress when they grow up.
Denny said it perfectly! haha!
The Sinclair video on the 1964 NY Worlds Fair distributed to station owners:
thanks for the Classique d'Camembert Allee!
'64 New York World Fair I think. Why don't we have World's Fairs anymore?
Thank you Allee for the C d'C!
I gave Erin in the canteen the info for the AWMOK so I hope she enjoys and comments!
I love them all too!
I really like how the arrow goes through the Beckley Loans sign, and the 1 hour dry cleaning sign too.
They had a little hand written sign that said movies start June 15, so we think students and volunteers run it in the summer. Half of the businesses in this little town are for sale. Another fun fact for neutron Dance subversives: we counted no less than 12 missile silos by the road near this town.
Sorry where are my manners, you are AWESOME!
Thanks much for the C d'C! Gave me such a boost today.
On a side note, I was within an hour drive of CARHENGE last weekend, and because of family obligations, couldn't get over there. I am going to revisit that place soon I hope. It's for sale. They're asking $300 thousand for it. I told my wife I want to add a drive-in theater and take old airstreams/vintage travel trailers and place them on the property permanently as motel rooms. She said no unless I got 9 other investors. It totally freaked me out that she didn't say no. Who's in?
It did get even better! Wow!
Do you think the twins would like the el Camino/ Boat combo?
Did you know them? Do you remember their names?
Were they gone before you discovered the Del Rubio's ?
I'm so sorry about their legs though. On the bright side, less shaving.
I had a '59 in high school. It was my great-grandfather's and when he went to the nursing home, he gave it to me.
It was turquoise. A four-door biscayne. Stripped down, no radio, just a metal plate where the radio should go. No a/c, a straight six with three on the tree. But I loved that car. Of course I also had a corvair and a souped up '63 nova coupe at the time, so no big deal when I burned up the clutch on the '59, my sister's husband fixed it, and I gave it to my other sister. She drove it without an air filter for 3 years until it started burning oil so bad that there weren't any mosquitos left in that county of Nebraska for some time.
It almost makes me a little queasy thinking about the twins and their '59's. Wish I could've seen that!
I am going to guess at this point that it was fabricated out of fiberglass to emulate the eyebrow '59 look, and not actually taken from a chevy rear end. The taillights probably from a '59 though.
I would be very happy to have a '59 el Camino, not to mention a boat that looked like a '59 eyebrow fin chevy to haul behind it!
I'll find out more about this picture, I borrowed it from a car web site that I frequent, and once a good pic begins to circulate among car groups, the photo credits, setting, and explanation of the build and rig usually follow somewhere.
