It’s registered in her name. In fact, if I got the story right, Aunt Linda is the one who negotiated and bought this beauty at a car show in Ohio.
What a jewel. Look at the pristine condition.
1953 Ford Crestline Victoria V8- 1953 was the50th anniversary of Ford, I read. “Power steering and power brakes were being added to this line”.
This model is a year younger than me!
I was up in the neighborhood Friday night and I called and asked if they were eating supper. “Not yet”, said Uncle Frank.
So I went to photograph the car but alas, it’s in the garage as it’s getting to be winter weather here.
And it was suppertime. I did get a few detail shots inside the garage. A big pot of vegetable soup was shared with me and Steve and as I drove us home, I promptly forgot all the little details about the car and should have written them down.
Thank goodness Linda had a photo . Here is the photo that Aunt Linda took of the new aquisition. She calls the color salmon.
Aunt Linda had photographed the car another day and was able to send it to me via her phone right then and there.
In the garage

And while we were there I met Dave who photographs cars and prints the images on T -shirts and who does Aerial Photography with his JDI helicopter-like drone camera system. WOW. You can’t go higher than 400 feet and you have to take it slow.
Like a hobby toy airplane, Dave at the controls.
Looks like a UFO to me
Back to earth and then to the van to print
What a setup Dave had in his van
WOW, it is amazing.
Dave explains his display of a big show. Tonight’s show was small cause people were worried it might rain.
Dave was generous and took my photo with Donald. I think Donald was planning on adding a JDI hover drone camera to his wish list. Looks like a serious toy.
The family has been in Pittsburgh a lot this summer. A wedding, a family reunion, a funeral, and this weekend a bridal shower.
Here are Maura and Michael sharing some raspberries while sitting on Uncle Frank’s 1933 Plymouth. You may have seen the postwhere Uncle Frank and Aunt Linda were pulling out of the driveway to drive another bride to the church in this snazzy car. It’s a beauty.
We were up at Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank’s today, seeing all the family in town for the wedding last night. Saturday was another wedding and Uncle Frank took his spotless 1933 Plymouth to pick up the bride. He has had the car since 1973 and it a beauty. He added a couple of Just Married signs on the sides and back. Michael(5) is photographing the scene from the porch.
