How a Ford dealership got its inventory back in the day.

How a Ford dealership got its inventory back in the day.
"After studying a large scale photo of the truck and its cargo being shipped in knocked-down or partially assembled form, we have been able to determine just what was loaded on it. At least two Ford Model TT Truck and possibly three Model T Car chassis’ minus wheels are loaded vertically on the sides of the truck and on the bed in the center. Crates containing front and rear fenders are mounted on a rack above the cab and the front of the truck. In the middle between the stacked chassis’ can be seen the wheels and tires and other parts. The bed and the rack on the rear are carrying both roadster and touring car bodies. The photo dates from the 1919 to 1924 period".click the pic.

Some things never change...

My big brother and I got a clock-radio in the mid-sixties (Clock-radios were a big thing. It's a clock - and a radio!).
This was one of the songs I remember listening to while I was going to sleep... forty-six years ago.
I posted it earlier when I talked about one of the gun-trucks from that mess in Vietnam - and there is a connection.
The vids not on that post anymore but this is the same one - intro by Jerry Lewis.

Barry's gone Christer on us but... good on him.
We're out of Iraq (Where we had no business to begin with) and all the troops are coming home.
All that are left are mercenaries... Oops, my bad. I meant rent-a-cops. No, that's not right either.
Okay, now I've got it! "Security Contractors", one of Little George's better ideas.
Let's check out Evie again... when she had it goin' on.

Hey! Conversion notwithstanding - Barry's still in the game.
Last March.

Barry actually looks like a pretty tough bastard then and now, godboy or no.

Even though it's a repost, that deuce and a half definitely one ups the old Bren Gun Carrier.
