Wonderful photo, Wally, thanks for sharing. It led me to search out this one from the 1950s.

You don’t get light streaming in like that anymore now that the station has been surrounded by tall buildings.  There was a brief period last year that the windows on the right wall in that photo we’re unobstructed when the building next door was taken down but a larger, uglier one has taken its place.

 

The front of the station with no neighbor to its west:

Is it bad that I wanted this more than the 356 Cabrio that was parked ahead of it?

I was all about this as a modern 'hemi under glass' until i realized they also photoshopped the front strut towers into it when they did it. I guess it also wouldnt be 'under glass' with it in the trunk/rear engine.

That's one way to pull a motor, I don't recommend it though.

Of course! I hadn't realized that the air was full of cigarette smoke.

What's with the d-ring on the floor? Is this the interrogation chair?

 

Picture unrelated. The not-actually (sent with the real map) autocross course from Easter Sunday.

We had a visitor last week. An all electric 60 foot Artic for testing. We already have five 40 footers that have been doing well and should be getting some of these in the future.  Sadly ours likely won’t have the alloy wheels or fender skirts.  

Filled with sand for the week to make sure is got enough power to climb hills and bridges.

Wow, you're right. That's the inside of a Blue Bird bus, sans seats.
