CHARLES DOES TIKI OASIS CAR SHOW
Nothing says DESSERT like a CHERPUMPLE! It’s an original recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, and the most talked-about new dessert to come along in years. Cherpumple is short for CHERry, PUMpkin and apPLE pie – the three pies each baked in a layer of cake. Cherry pie in white cake; a pumpkin pie in yellow cake, and apple pie in spice cake!
Lost ‘n Found, NY Auto Show, 1956
A couple years ago, I stumbled across this slide of an amazing 1950s space age show car. Much to my frustration, I couldn't quite read the name plate on the hood and had no idea what it was. In all the car books and mags I've read through the years, this is one dream car of the future I had never seen.
This is a great slide, one of the most colorful station wagon shots I’ve ever run across. The gas station attendant checking under the hood while he’s fillin’ it up with Ethyl is the perfect finishing touch.
