  1. #5 - I'd forgotten about 'bug screens'

    #12 - Model. Those boots have rarely touched the pavement or the bike.

    1. Every time we went on vacation my dad would fit a contraption like that in front of our car. he also slid an extra piece of mesh screen behind the grill in front of the radiator

    2. I was more disappointed with 12 when I zoomed in and realized those were beam lights not guns

  6. #3: Nice babe, yes, but: What is the truck? Split rear window, shifters on the column and the floor. What is it, can anybody ID?

    1. I did notice the placard on the driver door & thought "military" as a first guess but it's way too pretty for a military truck.

      Delete
    2. The placard does look military, but the chrome trim and white steering wheel, and shifter knobs say otherwise. It looks like some kind of semi truck, though., driver seat is separate from the bench seat, likely extra springs under it.

    3. The early 50's IH pickups had a split rear window, but the width of the cab, the shifters, plus the hand brake next to the driver's chair (she has her legs draped over it), all seem to say 'semi-tractor'. Some of the old Peterbilt cab-overs had split rear windows, but this doesn't look like a cab-over. Interesting.

    4. The "column shifter" may be hand control lever for the trailer brakes if it is indeed a semi. At least that's where they used to be located when I was driving those damn things in the oilfield 40 years ago. The ability to yank on the trailer brakes separate from the tractor saved my life twice. That rig appears to pre-date my time so it's just a guess but I think it likely. There appears to be an exhaust stack seen thru one of the rear windows although it might also be a utility pole. Also started to say, if I'd ever had a co-driver looked like that one, I might have stuck with it, but we didn't have co-drivers, so......
