Question type: General

I have a client that wants to reprint his menu exactly like he did years ago but does not
have any of the original files. So I am looking on all of the stock photography websites
looking for the same image but they need more info about the car.

Can someone please tell me what year and type of car this is?

Thank you!

Well, the grille has the old Chevrolet logo from the 30's. and that hood ornament looks like a 1928 Hudson. Headlights have not been mounted like that on fenders since the late 1920's. So what you have there is a hybrid, or Frankencar. Maybe somebody will spot something I don't.

1928 Hudson

Possibly a 1936 Chevrolet. Mid 30s anyway.

Thank you for your responses. I was wondering if this was a frankencar LOL. Only because it just didn't match up 100% on my image searches. I am wondering if this was a photo of a custom car that they just can't find anymore.

I am thinking this is an advert for a local pizza place due to the reference to delivery radius.

At the link scroll down towards the bottom. Hood ornament and front look very similar.

Oh yes this is a restaurant. They are out in Virginia and it has one of those checkered flag/sock hop theme's to it. I am redesigning their take out menu.

Yeah the logo you sent over is on their menu.

Bingo. On the cow logo. Youse da man

Sorry, didn't see the the hood ornament and grill on this link you sent me: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/carphotosbyrichard/sets/7215761978138 3997/

Yep but I guess you can put the logo on a menu if your using their products.

Oh, I'm sure the beef producers want it, maybe even pay to have their logo, anywhere and everywhere they can. To their benefit

Fordnut. Where did you find that first image? That is almost perfect.... or at least I can ask the client if he would be ok with that image.
