James Lumbers the Old Family Car

" OLD FAMILY CAR "
JAMES LUMBERS

50 s/n Canvas Giclee 18" x 32" Email-price
750 s/n Paper 16" x 23" $175

In the 40’s during the war, it was next to impossible to get
a new car. Charlie Padget needed one to get around to
his customers. He watched the want ads and finally his
patience paid off. He became the proud owner of a 1941
Chevrolet. Every weekend Charlie took great pride in
maintaining his treasure. It always looked like it just came
from the showroom. His wife Martha would look down from
the porch, wondering what possible pleasure a man could
derive from getting all greasy and dirty working on a car.
Charlie’s son Bill on the other hand, had total empathy
for the routine watching every step his father took.
After Charlie died, the old car was stored in the garage.
When Bill inherited the house after his mother passed away
the tradition was revived and Bill looks after his father’s
car with the same loving care. Now his son Charlie
Jr. patiently watches for an opportunity to help his dad
while his dog Teddy looks on with ambivalence.
