Always one in the crowd who does not follow the parking rules.

Or maybe TWO who don't follow the guidelines-

look at both the '56 4-door hardtop facing us,

but also the '55 4-door hardtop a few spaces to the left and facing away.

 

When you drive a beautiful Buick you may not want a Falcon Furrd tapping your bumpers?

Or is it a case of R-H-I-P?

Times Square - Herald Square, NYC

Broadway at the corner of West 46th Street

Bond was selling Two-Trouser Suits, 

and just beyond Bond was the big Billboard Ad for Camel cigarettes, where SMOKE RINGS constantly emitted from the mouth of the happy smoker

You bet!  When I was a kid, there was nothing I enjoyed more than a 3D burger, with special sauce!  Precursor of the Big Mac -- I think McDonalds just ripped off the idea from HoJo's.

I take it from the placement of the oil filler tube that this is a pretty early engine.
