  3. It’s almost as if people actually have a s**t about something other than themselves back then...🤔

  4. I used to run new Volvos from the main area distributer in Rockleigh, NJ to sales locations around the area back in the mid-60s. Their maintenance garage was a sterile and many hospital ERs.

    1. About 1975 I visited the Petty Enterprise garage in Level Cross, NC. Even with a race car or two being worked on, the shop area was beyond clean and orderly.
      I was an unannounced stranger but they gave me a full tour, answering any questions I had. All-in-all, it was a great 45-minutes or so. I was driving a Mustang at the time so perhaps they were spiritually moved to comfort the misguided.

  5. The car, the shop or the mechanic?

  6. Looks like some debris under the car on the floor.
    Also, a 1928 Dusenberg had a chasis lubrication system that was operated and refilled by reaching into the engine compartment. Lubbed everything needed on the chassis. Wouldn't have to do this with those cars.

  7. It looks to me to be a 47 Buick. My Dad had a black one.

  8. I'll bet he even has a tie on. I worked at a Texaco in the early 70's, we had to keep a clean uniform including bow ties and what they called garrison caps. We also were instructed to run to the customer, smile, be courteous & friendly or be fired on the spot.
