This Chevy was bought brand new in 1939 when JRF and Dolores were living in South San Francisco. It was also the car Rose Dini and JRF drove to Virginia City to get married in May 1941. Red Keithly had it while JRF was in the Army in the Pacific. After the War it was driven from Utah back to California, got a cream colored paint job and became our family car and then MKF's until it was worn out and parked on the bottom terrace about 1951. Ron F. and I removed the engine in 1961 for practice in taking things apart. JRF gave it to Pete Pellini make into a stock car racer about 1962

JMF Note: Notice Peroni's vineyard and JRF's TV antenna on the top of the hill. The scar from the landslide in the late 50's is also visible.
