This 1945 Federal sat out in front of a well-drilling business on a main Highway in central Michigan for a few years. No idea what ever happened to it, but it isn't there now.

What a great model that would make! Looks like the "Class of 45" chose it, too. OK...I doubt any markings from 1945 would survive for these years. Obviously some REALLLLLLY old-timers still around.

This is a late '40s or early '50s Chevy that belongs to a local farm near my home-right now they are using it as a bumper stop to fill those plastic tubes full of silage-the truck keeps the silage from blowing out the end of the tubes-this truck is very clean , runs great and is still earning it's keep. Some times there is a sign in the window when it's parked near the road="Not For Sale" :lol:

Actually, I've seen a couple of similar services prowling the wealthier areas of MetroWest (the area of Rtes. 9 and 20 between roughly Boston and Worcester, Ma.,) I'll try to keep a camera in the car, and next time I see one of their cars going by, I'll make an effort to take a picture. With Rt. 9 being basically stopped from 6:30A.M.-6:30P.M., it shouldn't be too tough.

Joe, the limo makes sense! A giant rolling billboard! Doubles as daily transportation, saves money in the long run!

Am I seeing the Orange Crate parked in front of that dealership?

What's weird about this one, a couple summers ago there was a "working girl" (yea, that kind) that stopped in the store to look around and after she left the store, she walked across the lot and got into an older Cadillac limo. I showed these pics to a coworker who happened to be working that night too and immeadiatly recognized this Caddy as being very similar to the Caddy that working girl got into O-o

Here's one that found me, I was stopped at a light in Tucson and this pulled up in the turn lane next to me - camera phones are great for taking pics like this!

Those almost look like the Delorean Rims...

Joe ,old Limo's are cheap , what else can you do with an old limo? A Limo rental biz does not wants to use them . They make great road trip cars.

Music and car fans unite! The guy said he worked at a music store for 15-years and just couldn't bear to let some damaged and unwanted instruments get trashed. (Of course, he also said the winters here are too long).

I need to get more old photos scanned. Since digital cameras became pocket size, I carry one everywhere I go.

Some older ones.
