I've made more banners than posts lately, but there isn't enough time to post them all at this rate, so here are some that I just have been passing over, that I'm not likely to ever get to

Bob Hope and Jack Benny in a T Bucket... for the Beach Boys spot as guests on the Jack Benny show (Thanks Mr Paul! )

skip the first 2 minutes to get to the point whet the T Bucket rolls into the scene after the Beach Boys sing California Girls for the zillionth time with less energy than a butterfly sneeze, as they lip synched to a slow recording of the song


the episode is described and analyzed at https://moviemagg.blogspot.com/2008/12/jach-benny-hour-tv-1965.html as also having Walt Disney and Elke Summer



I wonder what the story was with the T Bucket?

Probably not an original 60s Shelby, as owners of real Shelby Cobras aren't likely to screw around with million dollar investments on the street

looks like a fuel cell in the trunk too, a good sign it's not an original.

interesting rear entry passenger area, not many cars were made like this, 1900 Lanchester (thanks Billy O !)



Also no steering wheel. Still using a horse carriage dash board too.  Strange to see wire rims though, on something this early
