Herb Ringer’s American West: the 1950 Ford ‘Woody’

Readers of the Zephyr have always shown a particular fondness for Herb’s 1950 Ford ‘Woody’, which appears in a number of his photos. Below are a number of photos of that beloved car, taken from 1950-1953…JS

We believe Herb’s collection of Life in the West is one of the finest. His work has been
published in The Zephyr for 20 years. I am pleased finally, to offer Herb’s photographs
in color. We are also building a new ‘album’ of his work, elsewhere on this site.
My dear friend died on December 11, 1998…JS
