First Hot Rod Show after the War

Jim Seely returned from the war in Europe where he flew fighter planes, cargo planes and even Bombers.  He got his job back at the Los Angeles Fire Department.  He had heard there was going to be a car show at the armory so he stopped by on his way to work early one morning.  Security was provided by the MP's.  Jim was still in the reserves as an officer.  He showed the MP's his military ID and told them he wouldn't be able to come to the show due to work.  He asked if he could do a quick walk through and snap some pictures.  These are especially unique because there are no people blocking the cars.  Enjoy!
