This is how it goes...

So, last night, Larry and I were looking at this picture online. I was telling him who, when, where etc, and about the "garage" in the background. I said I remembered dad calling the car they're standing in front of a DeSoto. However, I was more interested in the car grandpa kept in that garage--remember it? A dusty looking black car, with that snub back-end and SPAGHETTI MONSTER head lights. What make was it, what year?

Uncle Eddie remembered that grandpa could stand milk cans in the trunk of the
(Cousin Gary Sufka just emailed: "Marlys, that old black car that Grandpa and I could put two milk cans in was a 1939 Chrysler. I think that in all the times that I rode with him in it we never made it over 35 mph".
