Some Very Old Bones
Your favorite car Contest Entry
'And here lies' the scant remains of a 1927 Oakland 'Greater Six' two door sedan,an old car that my Dad ( who passed away in 1981 ) had always expressed an interest in restoring but who also never really found the time ( or the money ) to seriously attempt the project! We'd partially dismantled it back in the nineteen seventies and it's become rather seriously 'decomposed' over the years ( notice how several of it's body panels and the canvas section that made up the central portion of it's roof ) have rotted apart completely and it's engine and compressed wooden frame rails have 'faded away' long ago too! Oakland Motor Company ( founded in 1907 ) was one of General Motors earliest brands of automobile but the company 'went belly up' in 1931 at the start of the historic Great Depression. the company was 'resurrected' (after a fashion) in 1933 and renamed 'Pontiac', which quickly became a successful and very popular brand of car which ( due to GM's financial troubles ) went defunct itself in 2010! *sigh* Time marches on,I guess!
