    Ten more, please!
    The last one is intimately familiar to me – I damaged that big chrome housing in a minor accident in my first car and went searching junkyards for another. There were lots of 67 Fords in the junkyards then, but the challenge was finding one where that little black triangle trim piece was 1) there and 2) not faded to silvery-gray.
    One interesting asterisk on your 1939 Ford – this is the Ford Standard. This was during a 2 year period (1938-39) when the current Ford Standard looked like last year’s Ford DeLuxe (but with slightly different trim) – a brazen but ultimately unsuccessful way to upsell customers to the more expensive version.

      I had a little trouble dating that Ford because of the 1938-39 boondoggle!

    Jim, I really like the first and last photos, especially the sun star on the 67 Ford!

      That sun star was such a happy accident. I love that photo.

        Well, there is that but everyone can’t be perfect. :)

    Nice detail work. I love the 63 Dodge, so gloriously ugly. Did you take that when we were at the National Auto Museum in Auburn?

      What was Exner thinking … or smoking … in the early 60s?!?! I took that at a Mecum auction.

    Jim, I really like the first and last photos, especially the sun burst on the 67 Ford.

      I didn’t realize I had gotten that sunburst until I got the scans back from the processor!
