Classic Cars at the classic ice cream stand!

Maeve and I went out for ice cream last night, and noticed a lot of "vintage" cars driving by, including these two that actually stopped in for ice cream! Above, and two below, a 1951 Studebaker Champion.

I'm not sure what the car below is, or if it is totally a fabricated car, but it is very cool. The couple driving it were my age - 65 +/-. There are no doors! They lifted the canvas top, and climbed out! The steering wheel swings aside to allow the driver to climb out.

I missed the moment of climbing out, but below is the "top up" shot.
By the way, Bruster's Ice Cream is classic 1950's, and the best ice cream I've ever had! Free ice cream (baby cone) if you are under 40" tall, and I'm not sure if it is still true, but they used to give you an extra scoop for free if it was raining? On Thursdays you get a half price Banana Split if you bring your own banana! They are in 21 states, so chances are there might be one near you? If there isn't one near you, you can start your own..... upcoming franchise seminars in Pittsburgh and Atlanta. (This is not an endorsement of their franchise program, but the ice cream is great!)
