Cool stuff!  Would be a treasuretrove for somebody with a '59 Pontiac.  I'm betting those Safari letters are hard to come by.

It is always hard to see vintage iron in this kind of disrepair but at least the crusher never got them. I love that 59 wagon. Thanks for sharing.

Yes- sad to see a Safari SW die a such a salty slow death!

Maybe we pre '58's owners have had these photos to ourselves long enough- I guess now I'll share them to the 'other guys'! biggrin

 Negative!

I had to take delivery of the 2 rims Timbuk so graciously sprung loose from his inventory! (raised some questions at Customs- "what's in the box, boy?"confuse

 

 The bonus was 5 days on Saltspring at our family home. (4 of which were spent looking in backyards around the island! smile)

There used to be a tons (literally) of old stuff on the Island, but a few years ago when steel was high the 'grim reeper' crusher came over on the ferry and didn't leave empty handed!no
