The back of her dress says "PILLSBURY"
I would say they are correct!
Look at how nice and straight the top is, and it also has the rain deflector above the windshield.
I wonder how the hood looks after those two got off?
The hood does look a bit compressed. I had one of those rain deflectors sewn on my top, Dosent work.At speed it just blows into the car leaving a nice open space for me to take shower.
Will I put 3 Murphy fasteners into the windshield frame and the rain deflector and it works perfectly as long as you remember to unfasten them before you put the top down. I got tired of water dripping down into the coil box and that did the trick.
Val, I considered that, Not sure if I want to drill holes into my windshield frame. Iv been trying to come up with a way that does not include drilling. All the glues I've seen wont hold up to the stress. But it may come to that.
Hey Will - what if you had some black parachute cord and ran it through the seam of the rain deflector: then have it exit either side near the edge of the windshield and use some hooks on the end to hook it to the windshield hinge? With black cord and brass hooks it would be very inconspicuous but would let you keep the deflector pulled down nicely and would not require modding anything in a permanent way.
Sorry, just checked your profile and saw you have a '19. So black cord and black hooks, even more inconspicuous.
Have not seen that picture in years, thought all copies were gone. Aunt Grace and cousin Rachel. KGB
Will: I have been using 3M double stick tape #4910 to stick various parts of my 14 together. (Tail lights mounted under the rear fenders and strobes low on either side of the body) You might try some of this to hold the flap to the windshield.
When you guys are done with the young ladies, who by the way may be someone's grandmother, did you notice the tractor in the back by the shed? The wheels look like the paddle type.
Will, years ago I found a windshield that had holes in it up there and threaded a brass screw in the holes and cut off the head and silver soldered over it. The result was that I could not find the place where the holes were originally and that is why I was not concerned about drilling holes in my windshield. I try not to do anything that can't be undone. I modified what was already there but if I was doing a top from the start I would just stitch a rigid piece in the rain deflector which should prevent it from blowing in.
If you sew a steel rod or flat piece of steel inside the windbreaker flap, on the lower edge, it will stay in place. No need to drill into the windshield. You might find the material is in two layers and you will only need to open one end to slide the rod in place.
What's up with that leg?REM
I think the leg was bruised by the same horse that kicked her in the face. She's going to stick with cars instead from now on.
I have period nickel plated clips that were offered for windshield flaps.
This clip goes over the round wind shield and is attached to the top flap. As this clip is actually spring steel it holds tightly to the windshield even at speed. A very nifty accessory, and no holes need be drilled..
Looks to me like they were located a bit west of Arkansas. I think I saw them on pier 39 while visiting the Barbary Coast of San Fran. LOL

better watch out, we might make dennis mad, then he will cry. I know the whole family, their name is Gump. That bruise is from dogs jumping on her. Her mom had to tie a pork chop around er neck to get the dogs to play with her.
We need to be more respectful of the people we see in the pictures posted. Those people are someone's family. Maybe even the family of someone on the forum. How would you like it if someone made remarks about your mother or grandmother?
Mike, I won't cry. I'm just so lonely that she is starting to look good.
Norm, You are right this could be someone's mother. And if she is I'll bet that's why paper bags were invented.
Dennis, Thats enough.Try and be an adult.
Gee Will, Why didn't you scold all the other children too!
My mother was born in 1917 and her father died of cancer when she and her two sisters were in elementary school. The made clothing from feed sacks for many years. Maybe that is why it pains me to see people make fun of the misfortune of others. I won't cry, but I will think less of those who find humor in this sort of thing.
John, many of my kin went to Arkansas and Oklahoma years ago and we sort of lost track. You never know where pictures will show up. Not all our relatives are good looking but still kin. My mother made shirts for us from flour sacks and were a nice as any around, she was a good seamstress and made do with what she had. I am a Tennessee hillbilly and proud of it and know how to get by if I have to. Sometimes a rough crowd here. KGB
Something to be said about potato sacks too.
Oh great. Now someone else's grandmother is going to get commented on.
Jay, Now I know why I like potatoes so much. There is no limit as to what you can do with them, Scott
Jay, you must have a shovel near your computer, you seem to be able to dig up more photos than most of us!!
I have ancestors that came from Tennessee hills country. You should see some of the photos of my ancestors. These are people I am proud to be related to.
And I don't know about Jay digging more potatoes (I know, Clayton, you said "photos") with his shovel. But he sure can dig up better potatoes with it.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Getting all butt-hurt cuz some of our ancestors were rather unfortunate looking
does nothing to change the fact that they were unfortunate looking. The poor girl
might have had a heart of gold, but that doesn't change her prospects for getting
a date to the prom. Frankly, I prefer the honest approach. The poor girl got the
short end of the stick in the looks department. So what ? I ain't no unicorn either !
That's just life.
Those were hard times and they may not have had much. You guys might be surprised what a little make-up and some nicer clothes might do for her. Add to that, her heart of gold, and she probably made someone a good wife.
What brand is the other car in the pic?
whoa, im waitin for that potato sack to blow up, And Will, you need to get off Dennis back, he has feelings to. HERES MY DECISION: Will, stand in the corner for 30 min. and go write,"I wont be a Jerk" on the blackboard 100 times. Dennis,you go with me, we are forced to hang anound under the stairwell watching the girls walk up the stairs, maybe we will see forrest and his sister.
I have been enjoying this discussion. I think the other car looks like a Studebaker. Maybe 1923. Maybe not.
It seems to me I have seen that some of our Drop Dead Gorgeous Celebrities have old photos of themselves that aren't any more flattering that these two young ladies.
Whatever the hard times they did have a Ford with a starter and shocks.
Thanks for mentioning POTATOES!!!
Rich, Ida Fls, IDAHO
Looks (and good health) are temporary.
For those that have them, my sincere hope that you enjoy them.
OH great, you had to post those pictures just before dinner didn't you Dave!
Don't worry Will I'll get back into my corner next to Mike but I'm still not going to write on the blackboard 100 times!
Marylin looks great in the sack (rimshot!) but her pictures before she was "discovered" are awfully homely. She looks downright rough.
However, I'm not sure makeup can help that girl too much. Can't really makeup away nostrils looking at you like another set of eyes.
Seth, When I lived back in the NYC metro area My uncle would say yeah, She's a Jewish guy's ten.....A two with 8 million dollars
This discussion reminds me of a true experience. About 30 or more years ago when our kids were little, one of them brought home pink eye and transmitted it to my wife. Both of her eyes swelled and looked just terrible. To make matters worse she developed at least 2 large cold sores on her lips (probably from stress caused by the eyes).
One night when she was at her worse, after I had fed, bathed and put the kids down, I went into our bedroom with one brown paper shopping bag over my head and one in my hand for her.
We laughed for at least half an hour. Once we quieted down, we'd look at each other and start laughing again. It still makes us smile.
Next click will be 41 year (and all 41 to each other). Gotta laugh once in a while!
Henry, that is a great love story. Times like that are the one we always remember. KGB
I don't know what all the fuss is 'bout, I thought this was Garrison Keillor's mama!
I like him and I 'recon I would like her too!
