Thanks for posting these Skyline. I love seeing all the old cars from when you could actually tell one make and model from another. More importantly, I appreciate being able to view the lake from the downtown area.

I look at the cars in the images I try to remember whose cars they were; Knick was a good player at that game. The white t-bird at the post office the black Pontiac on pineknot the new black Camaro at and the el-camino it looks to have side boards in the bed. The cars are cool some you might still see driving around the valley. You can view a lot of old images of Big Bear on ebay not many of the 60s 70s. Images I have not came across any of the fighter Jet that was at Meadow Park, the half-track that set at LH Liquor for years.

In the bottom 2 pictures of the bumper cars looks like my parents 63 Chevy pick up. Not sure when in 72 that was taken. I was born in June so if it was before I was born that could very well be my parents truck (which became mine when I turned 16.)

Some of those cars look pretty familiar! I remember the jet at Meadow park.
