Vintage PR Photo: 1956 Chevrolet Nomad – Paddling Upstream Without Any Water

I’m ok with all the fake backgrounds they used in these publicity shots, but this one is going a bit too far. Nothing but a roll of blue heavy paper? And where are they supposed to be? The new canoe canal with curbs? With those palms, I assume Hawaii, but it’s not working for me.

And who ever saw (or bought) a Nomad in this color combo? And why did the take away that awesome full rear wheel cutout that made the ’55 Nomad even that more distinctive?

OK, I’m done ranting now.
