Wistful Wednesday: T Bird

Cousin’s Bonnie and Wayne shared some fun photos with us by email,  we thank them for sharing!

This one made us both smile.  Far Guy is in cousin Jay’s #10 T-Bird, helped along by his father.  This must have been around 1957 –1958 sometime.

Uncle Jimmy built this for his son Jay.  Note the string steering and the front wheels are wider than the back.

Far Guy thinks that there were races of some sort in Grand Forks, ND  this T Bird had no motor it was a push car.  (There are no hills to speak of in North Dakota.)

  8. Life had more meaning back in those times. Pictures remind us of that.

  9. There must have been a sloping street or hill that they used over and over again. Us kids managed to find sloping streets to coast down on our bikes--even if it was for just a minute or so. (I lived in the flat Mpls suburbs.) All that work for a minute of gliding along. ;)

  11. No motor, no hills, no need for brakes? But at least it had a good roll cage!

  15. My older brothers liked making rustic things from scrap wood. The rope thing was also their way for turning.
