I wonder sometimes whether the "abundant photographic evidence" is more
related to the oddity of a car than to quantity.

We had one come through the Emporia Ks yard on the Santa Fe one night. It was leaking. Interesting night that night.
Thank you

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them.
