Vintage Snapshot: 1955 Rambler Wagon On Its Way To Las Vegas

In my recent search for Kodachromes, I came across these lovely shots of a Rambler on its way to Las Vegas in 1957. The images are part of a larger personal collection uploaded by A. T. Burke on his Flickr page.

For the younger readers wondering (i.e. me); the water bag seen in this wagon was a rather common accessory in hot climates back in the day.

In the words of Mr. Burke, his Kodachromes had ‘no artistic value’ intentions. Maybe so around ‘artistic circles’, but seen through the eyes of a car aficionado, there’s much beauty in these images.
