What is the black blob in front of the '59?

Yes! That's because cars really rusted out that fast.
Typically, 3 years up here in Michigan - you already had rust issues.
Burlington Vermont, 1965.
Having a chuckle, because "somebody" blacked out the v-dub bus.
But it is an eclectic mix of vehicles, isn't it? Can just make out what looks like an old flivver at mid-left.
Sorry, Tommy, but I don't know where it was taken.
Another shot of v-dub bus in Burlington c.1965. Maybe it was a Sony spy vehicle. You never know - just never know... hah!
Burlington Vermont again. All domestic vehicles this time. They wouldn't dare park a furriner car in front of the two most Iconic stores in USA - Sears & Woolworths!
Essex Vermont, 1965.
Man, loved those gas prices...
Why do you get to wear the cool campaign hat and I have to wear this dumb old cap?
I didn't love them so much back then, when they went above 25 cents a gallon!
is that chick smoking a cigarette?
Probably what the guy behind her is thinking!
Yes. She's hoping to go back to the future as well.
Not to be picky, but flivvers were Model T Fords. That is a Model A.
Where is Monte Walsh
The Munsters Britain ?

Back when I was pumping gas we never put our cigarette out for anything..... just sayin. Yes I quit altogether over 50 years ago, otherwise that and the asbestos dust would have done me in long ago.
