    I especially like the idea of turning a small child loose with a paint sprayer two feet away from the family car.
    Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?

    thats exactly what I was thinking when I looked at this picture.

    I just will never forget when my son was little, he decided instead of building the snowman, he was going to scrape the snow off daddys car using his snow shovel, and scrape all the snow off the hood of the car he did.
    And most of the finish and paint also.

    What's wrong with this picture?

    1) Free-handing the crosscut.
    2) No blade guard or riving knife.
    3) The boy's feet is tangled in cords.
    4) The girl isnít wearing a respirator.
    5) Nobody is wearing safety goggles.
    6) Dad and son are wearing long sleeves around machinery.
    7) The table saw blade is too high.
    8) Mom is not using the handle on the buffer.
    9) No guards on the ice-cream maker pulley.

    Yeah, but they're all dressed nicely.

    I wonder how many women here (or men, for that matter) have ever buffed a car while wearing a dress.

    Safety in the Good Old Days

    Dan,

    It's an American made FORD, for sure. (most likely doesn't look "Detriot" because it probably was designed in Dearborn)

    Looks like either a '49 or a '50, (I could tell for sure if I saw the parking lights), and it's a "coupe" (not an ordinary 2door). You can see the wide filler panel between the rear glass and the trunk lid. These had a rather small quarter side glass compared to the longer roof 2door sedans.

    And, dig those neat "Exterior" hinges.

    Aloha, Tony

    We had a 50 model 4 door, and it seems like our trunk latch ornament was different, (just can't remember for sure. This one has the ONE backup light on the left side that ours didn't have. I could tell for sure IF I could see the front grille, as they were different from the 49 to the 50. Seems like those were the first ones they called "Club Coupes".

    You are revealing yourself to be a kid.
    I immediately recognized it as a post WWII Ford, about '48 or '49.
