were the days, my friends!!
cool old photos of auto transport tractor-trailer rigs with their cargo
cool are these transporters? And the cars.....wonderful.
What a photographic time warp.
to me these shots were from 48' to 56'. The F-1 Ford trucks are

& some extra running lights. And the GMC truck more than

great cars on those transports.....the last photo is really nice.
The whole rig "shines" STYLE!!!! I just wish some were
