    (Their market penetration doesn't seem too deep; of nine identifiable cars in the photo, only one is "for sure" a Chevrolet, and it is at least two years old! ) BP

                • I always liked those early '60's Ford unibody pickups. Sure don't see 'em too often these days. Any idea where Santora's Drive-In is/was?

                      You don't see the early Ford Unibodies, Bill, because the bodies fatigued and they broke in two due to stress cracks. It was a poor idea, although it probably seemed like a good one at the time. Those bodies could not accommodate modest frame flex when loaded as trucks often are.

                      'Looks like Santora's is in upstate western New York. So it is safe to assume that the Lark in the photo has long since rusted away:

                            According to Google street view, the gas sation is gone butthe Piggly Wiggly is stil there and still a market (probably organic in Portland ) and the building across the street is still there.
                            No sign of any Studes.

                              I thought it was done by Tom Daniels, instead Ray Fahrner did it.
                              It was sold at RM's 2010 Montery auction .
                              It went for $88,000 against a expected $120-160,000.
