Was this on Burnside? Where the current Freddy's Parking lot is?

Currently Powell's Bookstore occupies that building.

It's right across 10th Avenue from the old KISN Korner.

Real cars made by fellow Americans.
Designed with slide rules
and drafting pencils
with the customer in mind.
Back then, cars had "lines".
That is to say, aesthetically pleasing
unique designs that caught your eye.
Today we have mostly run of the mill autos designed
mostly by computers, for efficiency, not looks.
So, so many of them look very much alike.
Bubble cars. Yuk.

A friend of mine when we were in High School had a 40 Packard. Boy did that have a great ride. We would stand on the running boards and drive around...go to Yaws, etc. He found a 38 Packard at the beach and bought it for parts. We towed it home one night and jacknifed under suicide bridge. Ruined the front grill and the back end of his 55 Chevy Bel-Air.
