Today’s Top 5

Supercharged!

Love that "Supercharged" Model A! Wonder if it's true, does not look like a hot rod of any fashion.

Tight Squeeze

Interesting park job between the two cars on the left which appear to be just inches apart. Maybe someone was playing a practical joke?

I guess getting out via the passenger side was much easier with bench seats!

"Supercharged"?

The Model A with two horseshoes and the crank starter.

Three years in the future

They'll be fighting their way across Europe and the Far East. Hope they fared well.

[Actually many if not most of the young men employed at defense plants in 1940 kept their jobs for the duration of the war. - Dave]

I didn't know that Thanks Dave
