Placerville Main Street car show's jalopies. Most of the ones in this line up are from the 1930s, with the exception of the blue Chevrolet pickup truck from the early 1950s.
One of the buildings behind them was built over the Old Hanging Tree. It's stump was saved and can be seen today.

I am not sure but this yellow car (Ford?) seems like another one from Riverside Wings&wheels show. Excellent presentation of the car exhibition, I think this is a promo action of the mall on the background. Anyway this is a celebration for us, well seen. TFS!

That's a fine display of vintage cars, and as I mentioned before unlike anything we ever see here in Ireland! They remind me of the work of the artist Coop. I don't suppose there was a big green monster or half naked devil woman just off screen? :)
Great combination again of the art of building and the art of motoring.
all the best

Hello Ray, What a fantastic display of old cars, all in perfect state in spite of the old age. And charming background like from Western movies. I would be delighted to be there. Very very nice.

You wrote about your Swedish height, what about Choctaw Indian heritage? It is very interesting for me.

Gidday dear JalopyRay
I love that word, jalopy, it's so American and reminds me of that cartoon the Wacky Races, with Penelope Pitstop, Dick Dastardly and the Anthill Mob. Not a car lover myself, I can still appreciate these old beauties. Their different colours and shapes are very attractive. Nice work, and it's definitely given me a smile.
Cheers, have a happy day
