Charlie's Car: 1948

Charlie's Car: 1948

"Charlie Ransom's car 1948." A big Chrysler that looks like it just came from the orthodontist. Our latest scan from a batch of Kodachrome slides taken in Bay County, Michigan, around Pinconning. View full size.

This set of slides

is terribly intriguing. I'm about 20 minutes from Pinconning and I keep looking for something I recognize in the set. It'll hit me one day. Would be nice to know who the original owner of the set was, as well.

My "learn to drive" car

Parents had a 1948 Chrysler Windsor in green. It was the car I learned to drive in before I got to borrow the family car, a 1957 Plymouth two-door station wagon.

Smooth Rider

My best friend's parents had one just like this. I enjoyed going into town with them because it was so quiet and didn't bounce and rattle like our old Plymouth. I can still feel the velour covered seats.

Long trip

California to Pinconning, in 1948. Might as well travel in style.
