Old Cars 3

Check out the location of the spare tire on this Ford convertible Roadster.  Look in the back..  That's called a "rumble seat". It folds back and down.  Two passengers can ride back there.

How did this 1950's Chevrolet Station Wagon get in here.  Station wagons were the pre-mini vans.  A station wagon was the "family car".  A young couple and two or three children took this on vacation.  Mom shopped for groceries in HER station wagon.

A 1937 Austin Salon.  This one was used as a taxi.  Austins were very popular small cars in the 1920's.

Ford V-8 engine.  I think Ford was one of the first to come out with a "V" engine.

1930 Ford with a rumble seat.  Look on both sides of the cars.  There are dresses from that era, toys lanterns, gas cans - all kinds of interesting stuff in addition to the cars.

A Jukebox from the 1940's and 50's.  Drop  in a nickle or quarter and hear your favorite tune.

More old cars tomorrow.  

We are planning a trip to a Roadtrek rally in Orlando, Florida next week.  We'll be at the Central Florida Fairgrounds there.
