    And a Pinto wagon in front of what looks like another GM Wagon.

    That’s actually a ‘71 ‘72? full sized Ford wagon. There were so many of those in Chicago growing up, and the Pontiacs too. Sadly all those cars have probably been recycled beer cans for the last 35 years. There were a ton of Olds Cutlass models on the streets as well. Rust is such an evil killer.

    My friend Ed Kennedy, his parents had a Safari that the paint was close to, if not the same as this one's paint. Ed liked goading someone into hanging out the back when he'd roll the window partway up, then roll it back down, catching them in it....

    I call 'em as I see 'em. Yeah, Ed was a hoot in high school. He said or did something once in class, I ended up losing it, the teacher got mad, I couldn't talk, but every time I just looked at Ed, I'd laugh even more. That took me almost half an hour and a stern talking-to from my teacher to clear that up....
