We hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but “Old Man Winter” has arrived early this year in the hills of Vermont. With his visit he has brought along cold air, a bit of snow last night, and low temperatures of only 21°F are predicted for this evening followed by a low of 13°F on Friday night.
Now that we have gotten the bad news out of the way, hopefully it will serve as our annual warning to our old car friends and readers in the US and other colder parts of the world to prepare your collector cars for winter storage. At the same time get your snow tires mounted, new wiper blades installed, and your antifreeze tested if necessary on your daily driver.
To get into the winter spirit today’s lead photo contains an older gentleman posing with a clean 1959 Buick four-door “Plain-Jane” sedan – could this possibly be a new car moment captured on film?
The enlargeable image below appears to have been taken at a pull over on a mountain pass in California or Nevada, and the Chrysler station wagon in the foreground has just passed through some snow. In the background is a red and black sign with “STOP”visible on the upper part of it which maybe a warning for motorists to put on a set of snow chains before going over the pass. At the end of the parking area on the right, a person laying on the ground beside a blue Chrysler Products sedan appears to be either installing or taking off a set of the metal winter traction devices.
