    My Dad was a WW2 veteran on the GI Bill, that graduated from UT in 1949 with a biz degree. He was also a car guy back in those days. He would have easily identified that car and appreciated it!

    Yes, but would he have identified the co-ed? If the apple didn’t fall far from the tree, I suspect he would have.

    Yeah, I suspect he would have recognized her if she was a student... UT was still small enough in the late 40's, you knew a lot people.

    Speaking of old cars, here are a few in front of Gregory Gym. I don't recognize cars this old but suspect this photo was taken in the late 1920's or early 30's ...

    These cars in front of the gym appear to be 1940's?

    Interesting to think about the few times I was in that building (Gregory, and all the other buildings) while on campus and never gave much thought to how long they had been around, or how many other students from years past had been through there. It gives me such an appreciation for the opportunity to be at UT for a little while in my life and experience this great institution and all its gifts.

    Best car ever parked out front of Gregory was after the Nobis draft. IIRC, Nobis bought a new Riveria and parked it at the curb; Harris bought a Olds and parked it at the curb; John Elliott bought a new Chevy PU and parked it at the curb; Diron (properly pronounced "Die-roan" but dragged out in your best East Texas drawl) bought a used Cadillac convertible (not a collector's item) with over 50,000 miles on it, drove it up the sidewalk, parked it with the top down and left a sign "DO NOT TOUCH".

    Great guy, funny guy, not doing well and could use your prayers

    Good. The Sponge was an atrocity and really, really needed to be torn down.
