Martin humor :good:  "Slacks" :laugh2: Jairus drives an ol' woodie with a dial AM radio and push-button pre-set stations.

He wears slacks, he has tons of klass :D

 

My grampa wore san-a-belts :sun_bespectacled: Now that I'm retired, I wear only stretchy-pants  :) or Tony P stylin' pants

None of my slacks fit these days.
But the wagon is not a woody.  Just a Ranch wagon.

You got the AM radio right and she, the wagon, started at the first turn of the key to drive this project to the post office.
PROOF that old cars are can be as dependably as anything modern.
IF one cares to maintain them.  I got heat, wipers, comfortable seating and tunes via a working 8-track.
Old school for sure.

Wow a 58 Ford. They only built them for half a year then jumped to the 59 as I recall. 

 

Oh and the Spectra is beautiful too.

Pablo, is that Marty Stanley's cowboy hat in the photo? Or your own? Those pants show up better than fluorescent colors. How far did you have to run to get them? :laugh2:

I heard they weren't going to make yardsticks any longer.

Marty hat and Tony P slacks :)

 

The good ol' days when you had to wedge a book of matches under the 8 track cartridge to make it play just one song.

There were no Bic lighters; matchbooks were free advertising space :dance3:

 

Hey Jairus, my new Banshee paint job looks like your wagon; only in reverse :)
