YAK Car Pic of the Day

59 Dodge wgn -10-11

For some reason, over the weekend we watched the 1959 movie The Alligator People, which was just as bad as it sounds. There were a couple of interesting cars in the movie, my favorite being a 1959 Dodge Custom Sierra station wagon. Unfortunately, the movie was so dark it was tough to get a good photo (see the bottom of this blog entry). So I did the next best thing: here’s a brochure shot of the same car, which I’m glad I looked up, because I learned that Dodge called its rear-facing third row seat the “Observation Lounge.”   Wow, the marketing guys must have worked nights and weekends to come up with that one!

    Don’t you just love the little sniper-to-be perched in the observation lounge?

        I had him pegged as an anti-SAFE act, Tea Party-NRA junior member. Perhaps Mom is driving him to his Uzi lessons.
