Sad Old '62...
« on: February 25, 2018, 11:55:19 PM »
Yesterday I drove from Las Vegas down to Arizona to meet a friend for lunch. Between the Hoover Dam and Kingman I saw this poor old sedan and stopped to take some quick pictures. The place looked like "The Hills Have Eyes", so I didn't seek out anyone to ask if it was for sale.

I saw the same car when i was on my US road trip.
That was in July last year and it is still sitting in exactly the same spot.
At least it will not be rusting. It needs someone to rescue it.

It's on Highway 93, on the west side. If you're headed south from Vegas like I was, you can look for that billboard.

From What i remember, Dynacorn got sued by GM.....then they started offering " licensed" bodies... so GM gets a cut. from what I have seen the bodies look pretty darn good.
