Now that is getting close to where I was born ..Twinn Falls and yes about 30 years later but I might have one of those cars.

Drove through a few days ago, it is surprising how much it still looks the same! Wish I had known this was coming so could have taken a current picture.

When I was really little, we visited that area to see some of my dad's family. I remember both Buhl and Twin Falls, but don't remember a lot of details about them (the street view above does look familiar?). My dad's father had a small dairy farm (also grew potatoes, who would have guessed?). One of the things I remember best about his place, is that alongside the cow barn were several 55 gallon drums filled with geodes. A few geodes, he had cut open to show the inside crystals. Most of them were uncut. He died about two years later, and the farm was sold soon after. I often wonder what ever became of those stones.
Jay, Thanks for the memories!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

That is beautiful country. One of my favorite Swap Meets was at Jerome's city park. Jerome, Kimberly and Wendell are close to Buhl. The Swap Meet was on grass and there was lots of shade from the park's trees. Wonderful folks from those towns helped form my idea of what the hobby was all about. Those small farm communities produced some amazing cars and paint jobs.

Used to be a 5 and 10 up that street to the right, managed that store for awhile, out of business years ago, loved the area but I had a family to feed!

Forgot to mention, there was a lot of good old tin every where, if the model A I wanted then is still there it should be down to the door handles long ago.
