    Some interesting '70s/'80s vehicles identifiable in this photo, waiting on the light:
    Lane one is a DJ-5 and LTD II wagon;
    Lane two is a Citation, Sedan DeVille and an EM-50, errr, GMC motorhome;
    Turn lane is a Fairmont wagon, either a Fiat or BMW compact sedan, an LTD sedan and some flavor of Dodge/Plymouth sedan.

    Reminds me of Charlton Heston's very cool custom Blazer in the movie Earthquake. And the scene where George Kennedy (playing a cop) tries to commandeer said rig for wounded transport:

    *gets in the driver's seat* "Hey, what's with all these levers?" *starts the truck, shifts it into gear*

    "Depends on what you want to do; it has a custom-built transmission. It has eight forward gears...*Kennedy stomps the go pedal and roars backward*...And three reverse!"

    Looks to be around '56, due to the two-tone blue '56 Chevy, right foreground.
