  2. Funny!
    Looks like Grunwald store had a canopy express.. Clamshell doors are open for loading and you can see the wall n window behind the drivers seat. My "not so smart" phone doesn't show enough detail to make out year/make/model. I have a 1948 Chevrolet canopy express. I bought it when I lived on Maui from a surfer who brought it from Missouri. When I moved to Texas I brought it along. A well travelled vehicle. I did similar with my 1956 Ford panel which I bought in Oregon and shipped to Maui then to Texas when I moved. Not to be outdone my wife bought her 1937 Chev pickup on Maui right after it arrived from Oregon and yes, She brought it to Texas too. A lot of my vehicles have "sea miles".

    The seats aren't bad but the dirty feet are disgusting.

    My guess would be that it's a attempt to keep water out of the wheel bearings when they back the boat down the ramp into the water.
