That's an attractive car.

Seems to be more of an suburban type than an interurban,
you don't see so many combines in this size.

Hershey Transit ran in urban areas,
but ran between towns through rural areas. 

Here is No.3 returning to the Hershey car barn,
and the start of restoration.

Have done similar madcap projects....

No trolleys, but vintage cars.

So I know what challenges they are facing.

Yeah, I know that battle so well. 

The Rambler had a lot pf work done in the trunk area when I got the car. 
I was working on the rocker panels when I sold the car. 

My British cars (TR3 and Austin Healey Sprites),
were the hardest battles with rust.  

:td:

Not sure if this is a post card or a plain photograph ?
 
Anyway, I like trolley diners.
Have one on my layout.

I think it is a photo.
I like trolley diners, too.

I had one on my N scale layout,
and had a Bachmann G scale trolley body,
that would have been a diner,
had I built that large scale trolley layout.

:sad:

Regards, Dave L.

Hi Dave  :wave:


That rust-spot on the Rambler roof, musta been HUGE !  :shocked:

I guess filling it wasn't an option.  :us:





Easier to reach for the Ray-Bans & baseball-cap !  ;)


:s: :s: :s: :s: :s:

Si.

The one with the rustholes in the roof was my '64 station wagon,
(Dave **only** had rusty rocker panels) 
and filling was the only option.

It was rusty all along the rain drip rails, no way to weld there,
so I filled it with a liberal amount of bathroom silicone. 
Held for years !
