Probably somebody's daily driver and not a tourist.

Joe,

I assume that is a 'vintage' (ie, taken in the '60s/'70s) photo rather than a recent b/w photo?

Pretty neat, don't see many with the dog dish hubcaps.

Yes Paul, it is a vintage photo. I found it on the H.A.M.B.. The one that I could not get to show up here when I tried to post it was of a '55 four door w/Regal trim. I assumed that one was a tourist as a fellow was rummaging through the trunk.

It worked this time! I thought this looked like Dad must be looking for something to keep the kids occupied while traveling.

There is a car like the second photo here near my house in Murrieta.
Stopped by there once and a girl owns it that said she drove it all through high school.
She also said she would consider selling it but we never discussed how much she might want.
Its a big car !

"Big car", compared to what <G>?

The Buick is a 1960, so the Studebaker was a relatively old car when the picture was taken (late 1959 or sometime later). At that time, not now, five years, or more, was old for a car.
Maybe the father bought ice to put into the cooler in the trunk.

Look at the tires: unless they are Coker or similar bias repops; that def is a vintage pic. :)

The Cities Service gas station pic: it can't be any older than very late 1959 also due to the 1960-63 Chevy stakebed.
