I See...

...Dead cars.  This truck is really most sincerely dead, and I remember trucks like this with good paint, good rubber, and an old farmer driving them. I say old, but the guys I saw driving trucks of this vintage were younger than I am now.  They were just old to me back when.

What is this Buick; about 1963?  I remember these when they were new, sometime during the Mercury space program years.  We were shooting astronauts into space and we still didn't have seatbelts in our cars.  Everybody wanted to be "thrown clear". Good Old Days! Nice chrome, though.

That truck reminds me of a "LOMDAT".
Stands for "lonely old man driving ancient truck"

Used to be a lot of them around here, but sadly most have passed away. :(
