The Quest

Yes, I had a quest to identify this car on Annie’s property…

1942 chevy fleetline

I love old cars. They are just so…well, old and rusty and metal-ly (is too a word.) I asked SuperGuy what this was, but he wasn’t sure. He did say 1940’s though. That was my start.

I looked at bumpers and windows and chrome and fenders.

Finally! Ah, ha! I found it on Flickr! It’s a 1942 Chevy Fleetline!

(no clue why, but it bugged me that I didn’t know…) Anyway, it’s a grand cool old car, isn’t it?  (and Annie, next time we’re bringing a spade or shovel or something. I’m just sure the perfect old bottle was JUST below the surface!)
