Super
.This has to be
the classic of classic photos!
 It defies time itself. When I saw this photo, I was
transported
back to
those wonderful days
when life was full of simple pleasures, back when we were
satisfied
 with less and happy
to walk instead of ride. This is February 6, 2011 when
time and
eternity intersect at this
 crossing. And to think that you and I, and others, once
 had a stage
 like this every day for
 the greatest performance ever. Oh, what the generation
of today has
 missed. Great Memories!

The rear window on the 58 Merc Turnpike Cruiser could retract into the body, giving the occupants

 flow-through ventilation. This car, like most of its generation, didn’t have air-conditioning, even as an option.
