YAK Car Pic of the Day

Hey! Move those garbage cans!

Don’t you just hate it when people don’t park their car where I can get a good picture of it? Like fer instance, this 1955 Chevy Two-Ten Handyman station wagon, parked way out of the way behind a Sanborn garage. Oh sure, I could have lumbered on back there for a better angle… yeah, right! The Two-Ten was Chevy’s middle series for the wildly popular ’55s; above the base One-Fifty, but below the Bel Air series — which was the home of the much-sought-after Nomad two-door wagon. The brochure (which you can see here) refers to it simply as the Nomad, but it has Bel Air nameplates on the rear fenders. This blue Two-Ten had a starting list price of $2,079 when new, and 28,918 were produced. (The Nomad, at $2,571 was the most expensive new Chevy besides the Corvette.)
