It has a more stylish back-end than the codger's, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: No comment, Ray...smile
Such a great image... nicely framed Frank

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter, yes it did.
Love this, Frank! You even caught some BlueSkys and puffy clouds in the hub cap! He did have this one done up nicely!

Bet he's owned it since new Frank
Frank L Croston.: When you talk to these guys it's surprising how long some of them have had them.

Even I, think it is a very stylish car, Frank. Those radiator sculptures are a bit scary in today's world
Frank L Croston.: How could you not, Richard. Yes, the hood ornaments are great, but deadly...I have a great collection of photo's of them, I should do a montage.

I think it's some form of a human male of unknown vintage. No idea about the car, though smile I like the reflection in the front hub cap.
Frank L Croston.: Yes, I think you are right, Alan, American vintage I would guess. Ah yes, the reflection, all planned of course. smile
A perfect title too.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Jacquelyn.
Lovely Car. Great style without trying too hard.
Frank L Croston.: Exactly, John, unlike what came in later years....smile
i like the hood ornament. and the white tyres. and the looong hood. and the gleaming paint job.... and... i should just stop now, Frank grin
Frank L Croston.: Yes, I was starting to get worried there, Ayush....But I know what you mean. smile
Tin can on wheels Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It'll last longer than your Peugot...It already has! smile
Whatever the model is, this is a beauty Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Yes it is, Richard.
That's some motor isn't it, fancy having to keep that looking spick and span.
Frank L Croston.: I think its an act of love, Brian. It is a beauty.
Fine style,like the whitewall tires
Frank L Croston.: Isn't it just, Martin. Yes, they add to it.
He's keeping it in fine trim, whatever it is - Oldsmobile??
Frank L Croston.: 1950 Packard I'm told, Tom, certainly in good condition.
