I covet that truck.

You're back on track, Laurie. That should be a '56 Chevy Cameo. I like the white walls. You just don't see white wall tires on trucks these days.

DB, I think everyone put their classic cars in garages during the bad weather winter. They're baaaaack! And ones I haven't seen before, to boot!

I'm on a quest...

I had a '57 with a wrap around rear window when I was a teenager but it wasn't a fleetside. These still rank as one of the great pick-up designs of all time, IMHO

This is probably a '58. The only real clue that I can spot are the quad headlights.

I remember scrubbing lots of whitewalls with SOS pads.

This must be owned by the same guy who has the El Camino from the earlier post, right? He's out of garage space! Another well cared for and loved classics.

That photo looks like it was taken in the Midwest or Great Plains. Makes me want to go to the ball park.

This is gorgeous!

Laurie said...

THanks, everyone!

JF, I spotted the two cars across the street from each other so I'm not surprised they belong to the same owner. It's funny, but I think I know the addresses of all the classic cars in town. I'm like an old car stalker. I am always bummed when I see one and realize I've already taken its picture. :-)

It could be used at Christmastime to deliver candy canes!

There's one classic I'll bet you haven't spotted yet, Laurie! Next time you're on the West side of Monterey road, walk to the right side of Foremost Liquor where the dumpster is kept and there's a fence that looks into the backyard of a property behind the store. There sits about a 1958 (don't recall exactly) Buick Roadmaster. The grass has grown, the tires have gone soft and years of sun and rain have fallen upon it, but I'm sure you could get a good snapshot of it and make it pretty again.
