Default My "NEW" gal- the real "Betty" ??

After getting our '38 convertible I've been on the lookout for photos of same year cars. Found this one a few weeks ago on that auction site and had the original blown up and afterward I put it in a frame and added it to the garage wall. Great photo and nice plate topper to boot. My wife nicknamed our car "BETTY" so I think I will call this gal the same.

That's what I assumed, had to google it and found lots around. Was unsure about the squares but there are 3 flags on them. Time for Sheldon Cooper's "Fun With Flags".
