On our recent trip back from California, we stopped in Eureka for an overnight. Talking a walk through Old Town at dusk, I thought we’d entered the Twilight Zone when we came across this parking lot that was almost exclusively populated by CCs, including no less than two
Olds Custom Cruiser GM “whale wagons”. Well, it is called “Old Town”.
There’s a particularly interesting line-up on the right, starting with the Town Car.
The biggest car of its time next to the smallest one, a Suzuki Swift (Geo Metro). And a Daewoo Lanos, next to it. They’re quickly becoming rare.
A Panther sandwich, actually.
A Maverick is is present too.
Along with two 70s Ford pickups, back-to-back.
Two blobby wagons from the late-aero years.
Custom Cruiser big GM wagon is over there.
Owned, or formerly owned by the Times Printing Company.
More likely the latter.
There’s also a spill-over effect on the street over there. Let’s take a closer look.
The eighties, on full display. So how do we get back to 2014?
