1953

I just managed to get a couple of photos of this grand old dame before the owners came out of the Tourist Information office, and said that would be $4 per shot. They settled for the promise that my cheque would be in the mail.

So, she’s 60 years old, and a real beauty.

I like the leather straps holding the bonnet shut.

  1. I found a photo of their car model online. She’s rather lovely! I wonder if they’ll ever do some restoration work on theirs.

  2. Did you tell them you were going to make their car famous? They should have been paying you to take pictures! After all now their car will be seen around the world.
    Oh, wait, maybe they are on the run and don’t want anyone to know where they are hiding out.
