DOTS: Old Timers Edition UPDATE

I took Turk on a walk yesterday and had some surprisingly good DOTS.

I’ve seen this 1950s commercial truck on the road before hauling junk. I think it is actually used as a means of livelihood, though I don’t see any plates in this picture. If I recall it was GM, probably a Chevy. The truck is actually a contemporary of the GMC I featured yesterday.

Thanks to Fintail, I now know this is an International Loadstar of recent Snowrunner fame. With how many hours I’ve sunk in that game and in that vehicle, I’m surprised I didn’t recognize it.

Then I peeked in the window of the Fire Museum in Fire House #1. When’s the last time you saw a Ford Falcon that clean? And a two door no less. Neat stuff. I always find it funny that fire station street signs still have a picture of an antique roofless design.

I like the green color. It’s not too crazy on the restomod spectrum.

Speaking of crazy, what is this? And why does it say “Yaarah” on it?

Something for the space crab, who probably isn’t on Oppo at this time. Hi Zoidberg.

Focus coupes are surprisingly rare.

Infinitis of this era have all but disappeared from the road. This example was a nice green color and had nary a scratch on it.

Thanks to Fintail, I can appreciate the rarity of this facelifted first generation Infiniti Q45. Sadly the facelift removed the overly ornate badge for a slightly ornate badge, but it was still quite interesting to see.

I do like me a Saab 900. I would probably go for a hardtop but I still like it.

While we are discussing fun two door red Swedish automobiles, I would be remiss to forget this nice Volvo C30.

Good old Turkey had fun yesterday.

And what the heck, let me throw in some cool history.

This is Old Zion Baptist Church, built in 1888 and founded by former slaves. New Zion Baptist is in the background.

Here’s a difficult question: Which of the featured cars would you take? I think I would like the Volvo C30 best followed closely by the Saab.
