Nice. Not sure about the interior of the rod but everything else is sweet.

Agreed, white interiors turn me off... in cars and houses.;)

I like this car a lot, very classy has a lot of Ford/Lincoln style.
This was before Ferrari figured out the people who will spend really big bucks want something outrageous, not classy.

Now that is cool.

Beautiful Pinin Farina, with about the last of the big aluminum drum brakes.
I think current prices are in the $500K range.

Now that is a damn fine-looking automobile.

From every angle.

This Pontiac and trailer setup looks clever but it too low, that thing will high center on a speed bump.
Maybe the car and trailer are air-bagged.

When a car becomes a stagecoach...

I really like those two photos. You could spend half an hour looking at them.

How did the driver climb up on the roof? Presumably he did it at just about every stop, multiple times a day. And if he's doing it that often, he has developed a routine. Is there a little step somewhere out of view? Surely he doesn't climb on the customer's luggage or on the parcels. Does he climb up the open rear door? The various window sills are certainly strong enough to use as steps and the running board gives him a little head start. I read somewhere that UPS drivers are taught how to climb into their trucks to be as efficient as possible. But I can imagine there are little foot holds bolted to the side of the car on the other side.

He pulled that car into that exact location, and has done so before. Why didn't he park a foot or two closer to the gas pump so he wouldn't have to bend awkwardly under the post office sign? Was that only to make it easier for the customers to get out the rear door? Or was he just not paying close attention to his driving?

Look at that luggage. Nice and strong and square for efficient stacking. Everything is soft ballistic nylon duffel bags now and wouldn't stack nearly as well.

Looks cramped and warm in that back seat. I bet it is a little smelly too.

I can hear the car groaning.

It says "Baby Chicks" on the cardboard flats.
I'll bet they were a bit ruffled upon arrival.
Funny to bar just the back windows.
And the Barnsdale sight glass pumps have taken much abuse.
Great definition. 20 cents a gallon?

Cigarette in the cowboy's hand...

I figure the driver goes from the running board to one foot on the front fender then the other foot on the window sill of the drivers door, or maybe there's a step ladder around that side which stays at the post office.
A 40 quart milk can will weigh near 100 lbs so a ladder would be a big help.


At least the roads were better than they were for these guys...
