Bringing Back the 50's
You can hear the fifties through rock & roll, Elvis, etc. You can see it through T.V., movies, etc. But I like to feel it through old classic cars....by driving, cleaning, petting, tuning, looking, putting them back they way they were originally made, and most of all showing them off at parades and car shows. I enjoy just riding around, and getting a thumbs up from folks young, and young at heart.... Hope you enjoy these pages from out of our past.

My fully restored 1950 Ford. I am the 5th owner of this Tudor Custom Deluxe. The first owner kept the vehicle until June 1974. He drove the car on his farm and to work. He sold the car with 67,256 miles on it. Since that time it has been in the hands of car collectors. I purchased the car June 1993. In the fall of 1995 I had a new paint job put on it where I work. It has 75530 miles 9-22-96. (update 76098 6-16-97) It still has the 100 horsepower Flathead V8 engine that came in it.
For the past four years it has received an award from the Annual Star & Strips Car Show at Cartersville / Cherokee Region AACA. This car has received awards at the Annual Southeastern National Meet of the Contemporary Historical Vehicle Association for past three years. The latest was received Oct. 11 1997 from the 8th Annual Apple Classie Invitational in Ellijay Ga.
Car is now under going an upgrade. Most pictures and other details soon.
But, "competition" amd "awards" is not the reason I own and drive my car. I own, drive, and show an old car because it is a part of my past, which I treasure and I want to share it with others. When I go to a car show, I get a hundred trophies in the smiles and the conversations I have with folks looking at my 1950 Ford. When I look into those faces and see their smiles as they recollect something funny or warm from their past, the time and expense I put into having it at the show is well spent.
If you would like to read more me, you may visit my page that is all about me. I may be a bit of a romantic, but when I'm at a car show, I'm helping tell a story that needs to be told. Grandpa telling the kids a favorite story about an old car brings generations together, if but for just a moment. Isn't that a heck of a trophy to win?

This Bridge is located a few miles west of where I live. It is known as the Euharlee Creek Bridge and still stands today. This covered bridge has been well maintained by the local folks. The bridge has the distinction of being the only covered bridge in Georgia (maybe the entire world) to have its own fire sprinkler system.

Back to the Country...
The location of the pictured store is unknown, but it reminds me of the country store in our local community back in the 50's. I wish I could see the olds cars that got gas here.
The following is part of an email I recieved from Kenneth D Parrott, - firstname.lastname@example.org - after a visit to this page.
I take pride in the fact that I was born into a two room house, on a red dirt road in Talbot County (Ga.). We had a well with a bucket and pulley to draw water and a sears catalog in the outhouse. Mama cooked on a woodstove with a reservoir on the end for hot water. Bathtub was round and galvanized right behind the stove. That place is still standing where Daddy built it, plain, crude and strong. He was a working man of the first order. In order to make a living, he cut pulpwood, worked in Woodland doing upholstery, delivered papers, sold produce from a pickup truck on roads around our home, and along with all that ran a small country store in the front of our house. Hoop cheese on the counter, meat in a salt box behind the counter, Bruton snuff and Prince Albert and other staples. Fish in a brine barrel. Coke box was the only refrigeration in the store. When Mama wanted the iron skillet scrubbed out my brother and I did it outside with clean sand. I am wandering, your page brought up some fond memories and for that I offer you a sincere Thank You!

You could buy a newspaper, a quart of milk and a dozen fresh eggs here! Plus, this is where you'll find the local Post Office. Also it was a place that friends would meet to visit and talk. Don't forget the RC and Moon Pie...
