  • I think the highway sign is enough to document where this picture was taken.

      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      • Bob, lovin' that color photo...trying to figure out what's going on with what looks like a lifesaver in the photo!

        Newest cars I see are the '69 Chevelle and '69 Country Squire parked next to each other...neat to see the '65 Impala too (perhaps my favorite Chevy of all) and the two second-generation Corvairs parked next to each other.

          I was thinking maybe the lot was dockside, and the picture was taken from a cruise ship possibly?

              Yep, or possibly a theme restaurant or any one of several nautical businesses along a waterfront.

              Wherever or whatever it was, Generous Motors sure had a firm grip on that market! BP
