Sometime around 1974 I had the pleasure of visiting the museum and seeing the real Nelliebelle as well as Roy Rogers horse "Trigger" that had been stuffed and put on display.

I grew up in Cincinnati and saw my share of rusted hulks as well. I remember my brother telling me one day that his patrol car (he was on the Cincinnati police force) had come apart when he was turning a corner. As I recall it was around 1963 and they were driving Dodge cars, the body of his car was so rotted in the undercarriage that the body seperated from the chassis.

I guess that growing up in the rust belt worked out well for me, I spent so much time patching rust holes that I got good enough at bodywork to make a pretty good living at it!

My family wasn't much for picture taking but if they had it would be a pic of me and my dad laying under his 71 ford van changing the oil on a saturday afternoon.

You were obviously spending a lot of money on gas instead of food. Glad to see you've filled out so nicely in later years

Me too.........
