    I was warned...

    That MO must be an Oregon thing. I used to sell tow truck and heavy truck parts. One of our vendors was a company in OR that made what is called a "pilot pole" this telescoping pole that goes on the front of a pilot car and is set to the height of the over size load being carried on the semi behind. The operating theory is that the tip of this pole hits an overpass well before the load on the truck, who has ample room to stop. For what looked like a pool skimming pole in construction it sure was hard for this company to produce, and to tell you when they would be able to ship how many units. Every time you called it sounded like you interrupted some bong hits. My boss finally dropped them from our catalog and website, we couldn't make a sale and promise a delivery accurately.

    Interesting Packard cab

    This would be the Broadway musical, not the movie. The movie came out in 1958.

    Hudson Museum Closing Controversy

    Very, very good words there, Matt. You know of what you speak. My former employer thinned his collection way down, simplified his life, for this very reason. The collections that are in private museums for tax purposes are usually leveraged as collateral and have to be sold to sold to settle the estate and satisfy creditors.

    62 Lincoln Continental Interior

    It would look better with the original wheels and hubcaps. Work looks nice on the interior.
