YAK Car Pic of the Day

Regular readers of this space (and if you’re not regular, try eating more fiber) know that I’m not usually a big fan of custom wheels and tires on old cars. But when I saw the full Moon discs and wide whites on this 1947 Dodge Custom the other day, I nodded in approval. These are even cooler than the Baby Moons I had on my ’77 Mercury Bobcat(!?). On another note, it’s difficult to see one of these late forties’ Mopar sedans without bringing to mind some old movie scene with a taxi cab in it, as these cars seemed to be the hack’s post-war ride of choice. At least in Hollywood. Saw these green giant earlier in the week in Wheatfield.
