Ah the good old days! Hey! Some day, these will be the good old days for someone else!! What I meant was the term Zoot Suit was spoken often when I was a kid. Don't remember them other than in cartoons.


When I was a young lad of eleven, me and some buds would go to the Salvation Army and for two bits, buy a fedora or a homburg and wear them around town. The Holy Grail was to find a bowler, but we never did. Geez that was fun!

The '34 is completely stock, unrestored...the flathead ran so nice, it was all I could do not to drool all over it :P


An awesome day for sure, we got all kinds of guns, car, and suit shots... :D
