Why do I find myself using this or a similar phrase so much more often these days?  I’m afraid to even offer an answer to that loaded question!  However, this time I can honestly say that “Back in the Day” of this exquisite specimen of Detroit’s finest, was “Back in the Day” before Steve!!  This is definitely a Pre-Steve model!


I came across this car only a few blocks from my home and had to stop to capture it! I’m not sure of the make or the year for that matter.  But, it is a spectacular example of the craftsmanship Detroit was capable of producing “Back in the Day!”

Can you imagine “scooping the loop” in this beauty!!

Any ideas as to the details of this car?  I hope someone can help us out.

  2. Steve- It’s a ’36 Ford Roadster (convertible, of course). Nicely restored!

    My grandfather owned a Ford dealership during this era.


  3. Hi Lynda! HAHAHA….scooping the loop? Let’s see if anyone can come up with an answer for that one – before I tell you! Thanks for stopping by!


  4. Getting dressed up, sitting close by your sweetie, listening to your favorite music, checking out the other cars/guys/gals/everything – oh, back in the day for sure. 🙂 Scooping the loop – never forget it!


  5. ’36 Ford…WAAAAAYYYYYYYYY before my time, Nelson!! Thanks for that info! And thanks for stopping by today. A dealership!! That would have been really exciting at that time of our history!! 🙂


  6. Ah yeas, the days before bucket seats!! I do remember those, car54! Glad you stopped by today!


  7. Lynda and all other curious souls – “Scooping the Loop” is what we called cruising around our little downtown area in the evening. It was in the shape of a loop and it would not be uncommon to make more than 100 laps before you might head over to the A&W for a root beer float and onion rings!! In those days we spend a lot of time in our cars!!


  8. I love your work it’s stunning…Simply stunning.


  9. Why, thank you very much, Linda! I really appreciate your kind words. I hope you’ll stop by again!


  10. That is a real car !


  11. I would say so, Rob! They don’t make them like that anymore!
