    1. I just googled '50s ________ from the rear(fill the blank with various Big 3 options)'. Looked a little Christineish to me, so I narrowed it down to Chrysler products. I saw that non- wagons had an exhausty thing at the bottom, then saw the ambulance that confirmed it for me.

      I'm trying to find your 'ol blue, but I must drive for a moment.

      I shall return...

    2. Well, I'm not having any luck finding this exact photo. But I'll still take one of those sickle & hammer DT shirts in extra medium whenever you get to it.

    3. Hope you had safesearch on. If id have googled 50s from the rear i doubt id have seen too many cars.

    4. Right? Surprisingly, all I got was cars, no safesearch to speak of. Should have gotten something to do with Jayne Mansfield's deathday and all...

  4. You knew those tail lights were too distinctive. If you had shown the tailgate bumpers it still would have been easy. So are you saying to find the source of this picture?

    2. Gorgeous car. Probably worth the $55K asking price, though that's not in my reach. So if somebody buys it, I call shotgun!

    3. BTW, I love the wagon theme lately. Awesome. They're the best for when the natives attack; just circle 'em up and they form a good makeshift fort.

    1. I modified the hue on the blurry part to throw you guys off the scent!

    2. i *knew* that was shooped! - i could tell from the pixels

  8. So changing the color led to not finding it, and this green one of course was the first one to find.
    Excellent pot metal chrome job here!

  9. Chrysler used the same station wagon platform for all of its late '50's wagons and just swapped the front clip and taillights for the particular model. You can see it if you compare the DeSoto and Plymouth images above. The back is identical except for the lights.

    1. You're right. That's why I posted it. That and the joke, of course.
