More Alley Transportaion

Another walk through the (now muddy) alleyways of Prescott.

 

This guy has bikes. A lot of freakin bikes! The thumbnail looks pretty crappy, so click on it to see the full-size pic.

 

Working our way from Newest to oldest, here is a 3rd generation (1959-1964) Cadillac Deville. It was behind a privacy fence, hence the odd angle of the picture:

 

The next car was considerably harder to figure out. It appears to be a 1957 Turnpike Cruiser 4-door sedan. Most of these models were setup with quad headlights, so I guess I found a bit of a rarity:

 

And last, but certainly not least, is the oldest of the vehicles seen in the alleys today, a Chevy Advanced Design pickup truck. This guy was made somewhere between 1947 and 1953:

 

Now I just have to try to get all the mud off of my shoes. Darn melting snow makes the alleys boggy to walk through. :)

Great pictures Tombo. There's a house on the outskirts of town here that is surrounded by hundreds of old junk cars. I would love to get some pictures of them but the guy is kind of nutty and would probably shoot me.

Kitty - Thanks!

Mike - In the back of my head I always wonder if somebody is going to come out of their house with a shotgun pointed in my general direction.
So far the scariest I have had was a rottweiler that jumped over his fence. That was....... interesting.

My Dad had a 1953 Chevy pickup that looked just like that... only newer:) He gave it to my oldest son who passed it on to his younger brother. Eventually, about 1985, it was sold..who knows? That could be it!
