Another Old Police Car
After my post a few weeks ago about old police cars, I came upon a beautiful and much older specimen parked at a rest stop on the New York State Thruway. This car is almost certainly older than I am. I just love the old gumball-machine light and the enormous mechanical siren on the front fender.


But sadly, this car is not going anywhere at the moment. These photos were taken Thursday evening around 7 p.m., so I hope someone has come for the car by now.

Wonderful - Car 54, Where are you?

Exactly! Thanks for inspiration on the cut text!

Yes, I'm an inspiration! My job here, she is done!

You may want to check your security settings!

What I'd like to check is why putting LJ headers in email posts works sometimes, but not others. I have to take a close look at the email format from my cell phone. That might be the problem. Anyway, thanks for the warning, although I was just trying not to slam a bunch of photos onto everyone's friends pages. And I wanted to obscure the phone number in the last photo.

I also remember those old cars and the show/

"There's a hold-up in the Bronx,
Brooklyn's broken out in fights,
There's a traffic jam in Harlem
That's backed up to Jackson Heights.
There's a Scout troop short a child,
Khrushchev's due at Idlewyld,
Car 54, Where Are You?"

Excellent! What a time capsule those lyrics are. Thanks.

Gorgeous! I love old cars.

A friend of my dad's has a 1930something police car that's fully restored. I wish I had pictures to share of it. :)
