lately I have been seeing some vintage shots of hot rods on instagram. I know some of us don't do instagram so I decided to link the pics to our site for our viewing pleasure. We will take no credit and these pics are solely for our enjoyment. Credits will go to the instagram posting host. I will post one or two pics a week. if you like what you see please post so I know Im not waisting my time. Thanks to (Early_Racing_Classics) and (Biggenfast) for donating the instagram photos for us old people to see here on the forum. LOL

Enjoy everyone!

Mario,
Parking enforcement, even back then. The stick he has has a piece of chalk on the end for marking tires. After a certain number of hours he makes the rounds again and if the car hasn't been moved, it's ticket time. Parking meters hadn't proliferated yet.

Wasn't all that long ago that they still used the chalk method around here! The downtown area was the only area that had meters, and loading zones weren't ever metered. So parking patrol would chalk your work van when parked in a loading zone and nail you on their next pass by in 30 minutes.

This is a great idea! There are a few instagram accounts I follow that post up some cool pictures. I'll have to show them off here as well.

Sounds great Zach. I asked the Instagram account owner if they would mind. Before taking their photos. So far Early racing classics and biggenfast has agreed to letting us post.
