johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

My Photo
Name:
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

goofin' 1950's style



here is a lil photo i dug up of my pop and his hotrod pals 'fixing' the engine for one of their cars. pop is the ritchie cunningham lookin' guy in the center.

kinda proof that doing culturally fringe-y things is in my nature and/or nurture. or something. daddy-o.

That must have been back when you could still work on your own car without being an electrical engineer/computer scientist.

thanks charissa, actually two of those guys worked for their dad who was a photographer in st. louis, so they developed those pix themselves.

tfg: i hear ya. although you have to wonder if there were computers in 1958, if those guys would be inside playing half-life instead of hax0ring cars :D
