About 25 years ago, my great uncle pasted away. One thing I remember about my uncle was that he loved to take pictures. In fact, he was the first person I can remember with a 35mm camera and at the time an original POLAROID.
Well, they've been stored away in the back of Ol' Scruffy's closet for every. This week, I ran across them and got to thinking again about getting them converted to digital format.
Well...my buddy had the slides on a CD for me the very next day! And to my surprise, there were a lot of cool photographs of my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and even my great grandparents. An unexpected treat for me was to see a few pictures of the cars that my family has owned over the years. Now I'm interested in going through the rest of the slides and seeing what else I might find.
Here is another photo of my great grandparents and my great aunt Helen. My grandfather told me this 1962 Chevrolet had been his, and he sold it to my great-grandfather.
Thought I'd post a little "shout out" to the folks that have signed up as Suede and Chrome "followers". In fact, I've moved the followers widget to the top of my right column. This is a really kool way to keep up on what I'm posting.
Since I've been trying to post on a regular basis, chances are that something new might appear on this site since the last time you visited. It isn't always easy to check in, but if you sign up as a follower, you will get a thumbnail and a short synposis of my latest posts. That way, you can decided if you need to visit again.
I am currently following a couple of blogs myself (you can scroll down and see what blogs Ol' Scruffy is following further down the right column).

You can see 3 of the buildings in this photograph. Not only were the buildings packed with vintage Chevrolets, the walls, rafters were filled with antique neon signs, pedal cars, and vintage parts.
