Great pics, thanks for sharing.
When I was a kid of about 8 or so (about 1947), my dad would work summers in Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks.
We would leave San Diego, stay overnight in Alhambra with my cousins, and then leave early in the morning with a 1939 Ford pulling a trailer filled with summer supplies, etc., and the car with 5 people in it.
The Ridge Route was our nemesis, and whether or not we boiled over depended on whether or not we had a head or tail wind. If we had a tail wind going up we would boil, a head wind would provide further cooling to the radiator and we wouldn't.
Eventually we always made it, then on to Visalia and up the steep grade to Sequoia.
