(About last post on previous page) How many teenagers can fit on top of a UHAUL Super Van? lol. The Van behind them looks to have some on top too!

Anyway, this morning at work I was going through old books on the shelves left by someone who retired. I found this shot in a book called "High-Velocity Metalworking" put out by NASA in 1967. It appears to be an old discarded Library book. On page 120 was this picture...pretty random find!

No company logo on this Dodge, but looks to be a working van from where it's parked. Lots of cool old cars in this shot.

Yeah it's a nice scheme. Simple Black on that Yellow. I thought that New Leaf Store might be a Marijuana place someplace, but it's not. It's a Community Market in California.

And that would give a whole new meaning to the term "Rat-Rod!"

Before there were radar speed check devices on the road side...I guess you just followed a van like these.

Not sure if this Dodge burger wagon has been posted yet. I don't think I've seen it.
