Judging by Mom's old photos, Dad was forever working on a junker automobile. It must have been the expert help..
He bought this car from a neighbor and, judging by my appearance in the photo, it must have been about 1952. I vaguely remember it didn't run when he got it; he had to drag it home and rebuild the engine.
Dad was a millwright at Alcoa and that job was a piece of cake for him to do.
