  2. Look Polo...there’s that white stuff again! That poor lady on the right appears to be stuck! :(

    On the bright side...I reckon folks don’t have to worry about food spoiling. The whole dang place is one
    big ice box! :rolleyes:

  3. That's a 1940 Nash. She doesn't have to worry, the seat folds down to make a bed.

    I can hear the V-6 in that GMC pickup in my head right now and it has been years since I've heard one run. :)

  6. I'll ask Polo to fix some hot cocoa...
    sleeping all night in that Nash can be
    quite a chilling experience! :)
  7. There's not much sheet metal between
    the V-6 and the inside front cab by
    the gears.
    It's fine in the cold months with the
    heat of that GM iron coming in.

    In the summer, that's whole different thing.
  8. I was uploading this photo when I noticed the caption written on top.
    I noticed that each pump had a specific name .

    Further checking found that this gas station was owned by the uncle of the
    Dione quintuplets.

    I remember watching this movie:

  14. That had to be very convenient in the '40s when so many later-teenage and young adults still lived at home.

  16. My dad said he used to do the same thing on the package shelf of my grandparents' '52 Buick on the drive between Des Plains, Illinois, and Flint, Michigan, when visiting family.
  17. No super freeways or rest stops. Restrooms were mostly gas stations or on the side of the road
    if you couldn’t wait.

  18. This one just came up on the Model T Ford Club of America forum. An old Dodge Brothers garage.
