          Heck, I'm trying to figure out what kind of car it is that tumbled onto the railroad tracks! BP

                Was that pic. taken in L.A.? Looks like Boyle-Heights, City-Terrace . Today would be the 10 freeway between the 5 and the 710 looking south from County Hospital area. Ed Murray has a shop there.

                    The Stude. on the shoulder is a 1950 Champion Starlight Coupe.

                    But I was like Bob P, trying without any luck to I.D. that wreck! The rear 1/4 Windows look very strange, like a fairly late model '70's? Mercury Capri, didn't the GM fastbacks rear window edge taper all the way down to the bottom, instead of meeting in the center like that?

                    Maybe a Cadillac?

                      I flipped it over, enlarged it, and lightened it up some. Maybe this will help.... I think its a 2 door sedan or coupe

                        Is the bridge where this shot was taken still there? It would be interesting to see how developed that hill is with a similar shot done today if you get near there some day. You don't see any empty spaces like that any more out there.

                        Oh, to have been a real estate speculator back then. Even, when I first lived there in '65 there were really some wide open spaces still available.

                        When I first saw the back of that car on the tracks I thought it might be a Tucker, but it appears to be a two door with less side windows. It also looks like behind the main pole closest to the camera on the berm and in the right lane are three possible Studes. The '50 or '51 dead center of the photo on the berm is a given, but I don't see any to the far right of the photo.

                            Rich, you must have a better view of the cars on the berm after the digital distortion of zooming in than do I. I sure can't tell what they are for sure. The '40 Ford, maybe. The one obscured by the pole is really hard to tell what it is. Thought maybe it might be a '48-'49 Studie. I sure can't see details well enough after a zoom to bet my life on a positive ID like the Starlight being a '50 Champion. The actual print would be an easy spot for everything. Those were usually shot with a nice large format camera.

                            Cool moment in time. I love those old news file shots.
                            Maybe this will help ID the wreck.

                              Dave, can you rotate that image 180 degrees?
                              I can't seem to concentrate when I am standing on my head, and I am really intrigued by what it might be.
                              Thanks. Bob
