Mmmm... doughnuts. Midnight snack time!

This rail shipment of seven new automobiles was delivered to the Burns Ford Garage about 1915.

Where are all those Bell Telephone trucks now?
There is a beautifully restored one that cruises around here.
I couldnt have said it better myself !
The trans was in the rear in those, driveshaft was 5/8 diameter and was held bowed down for less floor hump..Some wheres around 65 a local kid used to cruise M'Dee's with one all jacked up in the rear, looked funny with the tires all cambered out and you could see the torque converter spinning..Wasn't around long, probably crashed it..

Clark Kent drove one.
