V-8

Looks like the V-8 hood ornament on the '36 Ford already has the tips of the Vee broken off. I've owned three of 'em and they all came that way. I wish cars still had, and deserved, the beautiful ornaments they once possessed.

I sure like the Imperial. Yummy.

Nice Lineup!

A couple of limos on the left. First is a Cadillac, second maybe a Cad, third definitely a Buick, fourth looks like a Lincoln KB.

On the right we have a 1941 Ford woody -- in the Navy; a 1936 Ford, looks like a Tudor sedan; then a 1939 Chrysler Imperial; and a 1941 Oldsmobile.

Broadway Is My Beat

"from Times Square to Columbus Circle—the gaudiest, the most violent, the lonesomest mile in the world."

I would've liked to have seen it with Danny Clover.
