YAK Car Pic of the Day

WEBR’s ’57 Plymouth Custom Suburban

Here (from back in the day) is the WEBR mobile news cruiser, a 1957 Plymouth Custom Suburban, with (as indicated on the front fender) a V-8. Located at 970 on the AM dial, WEBR played popular music and also was a pioneer in the traffic-copter business, with future Amherst Supervisor Jack Sharpe behind the microphone.
