Parkling Lot, January 6 1957

It is an odd thing; in posting a few pictures of a parking lot, I will be making some people happy. Who knew?

Yes, today's post features two parking lot images; technically I guess that they are really pictures of Main Street Station, but it's the cars that get my attention. Look, there's a Ford Frijole, a Pontiac Gnome, and is that a Chevy Molar over there? Of course my favorite is the Nash Mosquito, or maybe the Buick Seizure-88. Boy, do I know my vintage cars!


Oh man, check out those two-tone beauties, like the Mercury Mongoose, the Studebaker Knobster. And that might be the front end of a Oldsmobile Chiclet. They don't make 'em like that anymore, folks! I'll just silently tip-toe away while you feast your eyes on those babies, and dream of a time when cars were works of art.

I'm one of the many people that enjoy seeing the parking lot! It's much more appealing than the "carnival" that took it's place.

I loves me some vintage parking lot! Great car names, when I was a kid we used to play funny car names; my personal favorite was - The "Chrysler Collision". Although your "Pontiac" Gnome" is funny as heck!

TM is right, these do add a "carnival" look to the park. Thanks for the Parking Lot Treat Major!

You took the words right out of my mouth (oh how unsanitary) cars indeed WERE a work of art!

You know, Major, if they had names like that I'd be buying new more often!

Funny stuff - but I think you missed the 'Honda Gimmick' back there.

Gosh I like older cars like these better. This was my country and I miss it... and I'm still in it. :\

Strange and unusual thing to notice, but I myself am strange and unusual: the bare side of the Main St Bank building looks totally real, like there'd be some folks in c1900 clothes behind those upstairs winders, calculating accounts by head and pen.
