YAK Car Pic of the Day


Nothing like a warm weather pic to ward off the cold. Like fer instance, this 1951 Nash Rambler Custom “All-Weather” Convertible Sedan. Nash advertised it as “…the first and only car to offer the thrill of the open car with the comfort and safety of a sedan.” Some of us remember it more as the car Lois Lane drove on the old Superman television series. This yellow number was seen last summer at the Grand NASHional car show in Batavia.

    If I recall correctly, the wipers ran on vacuum from the intake manifold, and the starter button was beneath the clutch pedal so you started the engine by depressing to the floor. Three on the tree, and not much more pickup than a Beetle.

      And now starter buttons are de rigueur on new cars. Hopefully the vacuum-powered wipers won’t come back!
