  • longrooferPicked up this 1959 #evergleam #aluminumtree this years a vintage swapmeet. I made friends talking to this older gentleman last month and it turned out he use to be a tool and die maker from back in the day. He said that he worked at a machine shop that would make pistons for JE around the same time! It was awesome connecting with a hotrodder from way back. He said this tree was given to him and his wife by his mother in law the first year they were married in 1959 and they are still together. I have a feeling that this will not be leaving our collection😬🎄 #Christmas #vintage #engleadventures
