Where are all of the trucks and SUVs? :lol:

Oh that's right, trucks were out on the farms and up in the woods, being used for work :P If I existed in that time, a truck would have been my daily driver for sure.

What's amazing about that pic is that it's at a ski resort somewhere, but all the cars are RWD!! No AWD, no SUVs, no CUVs, no FWD...and it's in color...from a time long ago that I'm used to seeing in B&W/shades of gray.

The sport utility vehicle is right there in front GMT.... that light green Chevy Wagon. It's out skiing (see the ski racks on the roof?) and as a wagon, it has lots of utility! I'm surprised you couldn't see it.

Wonder if that '58 Phord on the left overheated during high-altitude driving like our '58 Raunch Wagon used to? Of course, my old man was kind of an idiot for purchasing it with a 223 six and 3-speed stick. A little too much car for not enough engine, especially up in the Rockies.

Chevy wagon trims were Yeoman, Brookwood, Nomad, in ascending order. Nomad got the Impala-esque rocket, by the '58 brochure that green sweetie is a Brookwood.

Another greatly-refreshing aspect is; cars OTHER than black/white & 5 shades of grey. The pic is in color and it's colorful.
