Guns and hats in back seat

Gun props that go with the car ~

Over the years I have collected antique firearms and also I have collected movie props. The Thompson Machine Gun is an original Model 1921. But the other guns look real enough, they are actually movie props that are made of rubber. The double barreled shotgun and both .38 calaber pistols came from the old Desilu Studios' prop department and were all used in the original television show, "The Untouchables" starring Robert Stack. The lighter hat was worn by Robert Stack in the show. The darker colored hat was worn by Andy Garcia in the newer version feature film, "The Untouchables" starring Kevin Costner and Sean Connery. The old wooden violin case was bought from a seller on eBay.

Whenever we take the car to shows, we set it up with these props and also have several original newspapers with gangster headlines that we put on the front seat. Some people get as much fun from the props as they do the car itself.

At our July 4, 2011 picnic, the Chevy had her boyfriend come for the day. We parked the cars at our front yard flagpole.

The 1931 Model A Ford belongs to our good friend, Sammy. Sammy is well over 80 years old. He bought this car in 1959 and just recently had it restored. It's been in storage all these years.

The car runs perfectly and looks great!

-
Sammy had the car re-wired for 12-volt and added turn signals and a 2nd tail light.

I think the cars make a good looking couple.
