Grandpa's (pictured) first auto, a Ford Model T coupe with artillery wheels, produced just down the street in Highland Park Michigan. This scan is from a small old print. Another for the History Lovers Group.

Hey, thanks my friend. Thats my grandpa there. The car was manufactured just down the road, at the old Ford Highland Park Assembly Plant which is now a historic landmark. How about the artillery wheels eh? You wouldn't get stuck in the mud as much with those, which was a big problem back then.

I have got lots of old images of people with antique autos but don't want to put up too many as DA isn't purposed for that from what I have read.

Thanks again for the comment.

Right on brother. I had a 72 Deuce and a quarter (Buick 225)with a 455ci, duals, headers, Holley 750cfm 4 barrel and champagne gold two tone paint.
A land yacht for sure. Efficient at burning more gas. So archaic and destructive on many levels.
But the HP of a V-8 is a lot of fun as long as you are oblivious to the long term consequences.
I could go on and on but am sure you know what I'm getting at.
Always have and always will keep a sharp eye on the sky.
Naked apes in the human zoo. We could be someone out there's pet ant farm. Have always felt this.
