Goobers truck on Mayberry RFD
1958. TV show "Cannonball", the adventures of the long-haul trucker.
1958. TV show "Rescue 8". Excellent show about Los Angeles Fire Department Rescue trucks. By far the best episode was "The Steel Mountain", which aired November 18, 1958. Some crooks were climbing among the discarded trolley cars on Terminal Island when one of them falls and the Fire Department comes in for the rescue before the trolley falls some 35 feet to the ground. Very well filmed. I remember watching at the age of 2. Real high drama.
Great thread. Little bit of Northwest history here. That bumper sticker on the truck is referring to a downturn in the aircraft industry in Seattle, [Boeing]. Lots of folks out of work, freeways pretty empty, hence the "last person leaving Seattle turn out the lights". Similar sentiment was on a billboard along I-5. We're a bit more diversified now with all the hi tech stuff but Boeing still carries a lot of weight in the Northwest.

you're doin' right, fella, and don't forget that wonderful thing, the www.imdb.com, the international movie data base, or www.imcdb.org, the international movie car data base, a good source, if you're lookin' for movies with cars, cars from movies or sumlikethat....
February 21, 1960. TV show WHIRLYBIRDS. They were always chasing a car or truck in every episode.
Not an old show, but I just happen to catch the episode of NCIS that showed Abbys car.
I always pictured Abby to be a mid 50's Buick girl
