    Wow, a Kaiser Darrin! A very rare sight!
    Running boards on a Studebaker pickup, also a rare sight.
    I like that Javelin, looks like it just came off the showroom floor!
    Thank you for the virtual car show!

      Upon closer examination of the Frazer photo, I see a 1969-1975 International Harvester pickup in the upper right-hand corner. Do you have any other photos of it?

        The Henry J is my favorite. Looked for one for over twenty years. Most got turned into dragsters.

          I missed that one, but here's a pic taken by another participant:

            I owned a 1953 Henry J while I was in the Coast Guard in Alameda in 1966. I bought it from a used car lot in Oakland for $125 and sold it back for $100 less then a year later. Was there a Kaiser get-together in conjunction with the event?

              No, the same fellow owns all the KF cars pictured, along with others. He has his own little museum, complete with my old '53 Willys Aerolark:

                  There are 2 Henry J in a garage at J-6 near Benson. They are not cut up for a drag car but solid complete including glass for restoration. If anyone is interested, I can contact the owner and see if they are for sale and price.

                    On what ground is the question based on?

                        Thanks for the nice pictures. It looked to be an orphan car show, until I looked in the background. The post-Studebaker Avanti with Studebaker wheelcovers is "different". I think of what Bob Bourke went through to get external running boards removed from the R and 2R pickups.

                          The 1951 Frazer is noteworthy in the facelift of the 1950 Frazer body. The story is that K-F had 10,000+ unsold bodies left over from the 1950 model year. So, in order to sell them, K-F did a facelift on the car leaving the basic body untouched. If you look at a 1950 Frazer you might not believe it is the same basic car. About the only clue is that the roof and windows are the same. The 51 Frazer was so popular with the dealers that K-F got way more orders than 10,000. The stylist achieved a modern (for 1951) look and a prestigious look as well. Sound familiar? Brooks Stevens did the same thing with the 62 Hawk. I think both are brilliant examples of what a world-class stylist can do, even with a very limited budget. I wouldn't mind having a 51 Frazer, but I would drop a Studebaker 289 in it.

                            At one of our car shows in Western Arizona a gal (Karen) had a beautiful Kaiser. What impressed me the most was they had fitted a 64 ish T-Bird seat and interior which looked like it was born there.

                              Last December my youngest daughter texted me this picture. She had gone to work and it was parked in the lot. I am no K-F expert, but it appears to be a 1953 Dragon, a rather rare and well appointed car.
