    Has anyone else noticed that in all of these pictures where there is a gun being held, they all have their finger on the trigger. Nowadays that is a definite NO NO.

    ^ I think that's because they're going to shoot who or what ever they have the gun pointed at. The little lady above looks a bit frightened.

    I have always had a soft spot for panel trucks and sedan deliveries. Is this a Dodge? Sure would love to have it!

    Oops one more.
    Someone pointed out this JR car used in the intro to the Hazel TV show.
    It is a 1964 Electric powered adult version from the same people that made my Mustang JR. Since Ford sponsored the show they always used Ford vehicles and the JR would have also been provided by Ford. I have been told it was only used in the intro to the 4th season and never made an appearance in the show.

    Here is a screen capture.

    And here is the video.

    One of his dealers was Lou Stringer, who only worked for him in the off-season as he was a professional baseball player. Stringer was interviewed and remembered selling a Corvette to Elvis.

    Anyone notice that this "experimental" Pontiac was called a Monte Carlo? Not sure what year this was taken but it may have been a concept for the Tempest.
