1950 Plymouth DeLuxe Sedan

1950 Plymouth DeLuxe Sedan, originally uploaded by jay el.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF METAL ART......MY FIRST CAR WAS A 1950 PLYMOUTH FASTBACK 2 DR (FLATHEAD 6)...and it was one fast Plymouth. Back in the late 50s, dragstrips were places where we met on Friday nights to see if the milling of our heads had been done just right. I knew mine had been done right when I beat a 49 Ford v8 Crown Vic by 4 lengths in the quarter mile. I thank it might have been a good shifting on my part, but my Plymouth gained a mean reputation from thereon. THANKS TO jay el for making this photo available to the public.

About Me

My photo
My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
