This is a picture of my Mom and Dads, neighbors relative. I am not sure which one he is, but I thought it would be cool here.

Eric, I am not sure, but I think it was during the war. They, like many Americans soldiers thought the Kubel performed better than the Jeep, so they probably traded 3 Jeeps for the Bucket Car.

I felt this belonged here, my dad shot this one at the old Ramona Raceway early 60's... check out the guy in the silver space suit...Gotta Name?

Don "The Snake" Prudome. Wow, thats a long time ago.

I have a few pictures I inherited when my Dad passed away in 07. I am not sure if my Dad took these or a friend of his, but they were in one of the family photo albums.

It must have rained a lot in Pomona back in the 60's. Everybody had high water pants.
You know it looks like it was a style thing, because most all of the dudes are sportin them.

We didn't wear em quite as high as the guys in the picture but it was considered VERY uncool if your socks didn't show!
That's funny because when I was in high school in the late 70s, we were into the bell bottoms and you were considered a geek if any part of your shoes or socks showed. When 501s first came in, we were saying, ha what a nerd.
