'64 Falcon and a maybe '52 Nash Cosmopolitan. Similar to the one driven by Lois Lane in the original Superman series.

Photo 1: Looks like a 1970 Camaro on the old West Side Highway.
Photo 2: Kings Highway looking east from East 16 Street, maybe from the Brighton Line subway station.
Photo 3: ??
Photo 4: Building with an Erector Set.
Photo 5: Various ash trays when one was not ostracized for smoking.
Photo 6: Volkswagen by a High Pressure hydrant. It could be lower Manhattan, the Garment District, or Downtown Brooklyn.
Photo 7: Clackers - a toy when moved right and in rhythm would have the balls impact each other. They could hurt your arm.
The quote is from Norman Bates in Psycho.
The Merrie Melodies and appropriate Johnny Gage Throwback Thursday sign-off.

My first job too Johnny. Some guy was telling us that it was the Chicago fire. But he must have been lost because we were in the Bronx and NOT Chicago. I think where Co Op City is today.

In fact I think they lite the place up twice that day because it came in again. So I went to work pumping that old rig a second time that day.
Thank you Johnny Gage for bringing us the joy of these Throwback Thursdays. You started this last September, 2019 and it has caught the attention of many members. It was great that you were able to take us back in a time that many of us remember. The pictures and your comments were GREAT. Since you first began this topic, the views have reached over 69,000 in less than one years time. Quite an accomplishment.

Of course your "Glory Days" and "Vintage FDNY War Lids" have been some of your other amazing topics on here as well.

My "favorite" Throwback Thursday photo was # 56 here with the Chicago Fire reenactment at the Freedomland Amusement Park. Now home to Co-Op City in the Bronx. I guess I was about 6 or 7 years old, where I got to help pump my first fire - the historic Chicago Fire using those hand pumpers. A bunch of us kids grabbed the long handle on one side and a bunch of kids grabbed the long handle on the other side. Up and down and the water came out of the hose for the fireman and some other kids to put out that fire.

Thank you Mr Gage for all the effort you have put into this for us.

Dan, let me second Willy's comments. I have really enjoyed these posts, and have a pretty good idea of the amount of work it took to put them together. I'm gonna miss them.

The VW is downtown SOHO Manhattan.
THANKS TO ALL FOR PLAYING ALONG, I HAD JUST AS MUCH FUN DISCOVERING THE IMAGES TO SHARE. THE 60s WERE AN AMAZING TIME.
BEST, JOHNNYGAGE.

Will Mr Gage come up with another interesting series for us to follow ?

Or will he just keep his Glory Days and Helmet Lids stories coming ?

How many of you think that our friend Johnny will come up with ANOTHER Interesting Topic ?

How many of you think Johnny will just continue with his Glory Days and Helmet Lid stories ?

If Johnny DOES come up with a new topic, what else could it be ?

I guess we will all just have to wait and see.

Good luck Johnny the BEST to you.

We'll give your regards to Old Broadway. Remember you to Herald Square. Tell all the gang at 42nd St that you will soon be there.

Jimmy Cagney as George M. Cohan in "Yankee Doodle Dandy", 1942. Cagney won the Oscar as Best Actor for this movie. Thanx for posting, Uncle Wilhelm.
