Unfortunately, I have no way to do it. No camera on me at the time I saw this. Was tempted to run back into Dillons (what they call Kroger stores in Kansas)and grab a disposable, then I remembered I have no web space for posting such things. So you'll have to do with my faux-Sid Collins "Color Radio" description.
In the parking lot of the Dillons on Santa Fe Street, Olathe, Kansas, on a clear night lit by crescent moon and the shine of streetlight, roughly 6 p.m. Veterans Day 2002, sat a tawdry tan-colored Oldsmobile.
The Olds was 50's vintage. It looked like a '57 Chevy on acid. Chrome everywhere--bumpers, hood, side panels, trunk.
What was stunning about it was, this car was NOT reconditioned. Somehow, it had survived 45-50 years in drivable form. The color was dull from soaking in five decades of sunlight. The passenger-side window was a cracked, jagged mess, held together only by maybe a bit of Super Glue; how else to explain being smashed as it was and still in one piece? I didn't have the nerve to get close enough to look at the interior.
There was no model name on the car. It just said OLDSMOBILE across the front of the hood. Any guesses what nameplate this tank had? What I wouldn't have given to see it--and hear it--pull out of the parking lot.
