Wasn't this picture part of Morton's advertising campaign 35 or so years ago ?? Looks familiar
Nice photo, but it is a restored car. Notice there are no common sense or "Murphy" fasteners on the armrests for side curtains, and the top strap is leather with the buckle.
: ^ )
Keith, Yes but the car is still worth it's salt! :-)
"When It Rains, It Pours !"
That almost looks like a Norman Rockwell painting.
Is it just me or does the photo seem a little odd in that it's raining heavily at the rear of the car (left side of photo) with the rain partially obscuring the car and passengers while the front of the car (right side of photo) seems much more clear with less rain? I guess if it was an advertisement photo it would make sense so the product can be seen clearly.
Historic ad on Morton Salt's website.
Reminds me of the time when my Dad got his first car, it was a 1934 Nash. That first Sunday Mom packed a lunch for us all and Dad drove us out to the country. Well sir, it started to rain and rain buckets is what it did. After riding around for a while Dad found a dirt road and pull in, it was still raining hard so we sat in the Nash to eat our lunch. After lunch the rain had stop so Mom and Dad let us get out of the car to roam around and burn off some energy before the trip back home, to Lexington, Mass.. That's when we found out we had just picnicked at the entrance to the Shirley, Mass. dump!
Happy motoring, Warren
PS: How many times do I have to tell you guys, If you own a Model T it's easy to find great looking women!
Bob, Your right, Morton definitely played on the Rockwellian look and charm for their ad.
Dang, that looks like us this past Sunday. We drove it about 50 miles to a fellow's house to help him out with a TT that wouldn't run. Got into rain before we got there and got into plenty more before we got home. No side curtains. It's amazing how dry you can actually stay unless it is a blowing rain.
