    I remember those newsreels from the movies. I have seen pictures of the Wagonaires used by Lowell Thomas. I met Lowell Thomas at his home office (in the 1960s). Marist College now has a Lowell Thomas building and I believe that they have his archives.

      We have used a similar arrangement with my 84 RX-7 - my photographer on his knees in the passenger seat with his head and shoulders out through the sunroof opening. We were photographing a motorcycle, but will be doing some car videos later this summer.

          Back in the 1990's, I saw a clip with these same wagons, (left thumbnail), in an old newsreel on Turner Classic Movies. It was at least a couple of minutes in length but I've never been able to find it on line...
