Wow! Do the wheels on that jalopy have wooden spokes? They kind of look like the cast aluminum modern wheels that are all the rage right now. Do you have a guess of the make and model year of that car?

Interesting question/observation to which I don't have an answer. I'd guess there are lots of people who could look at the photo (or the vehicle) and describe it to a T. I'll keep it in mind for next time!

35-40 years ago I used to run often in the MDC reservoir properties north and south of Rte 44 in West Hartford with my friends Tony and Al. There was an old car of that vintage, more or less, deep in the woods near one of the long grassy levees in the northern part of the Brainard orienteering map. One of our typical routes was known as “taking the levee to the Chevy”.

We three are most certainly old enough to know that one well.
