We’re traveling back to Washington DC in May of 1974. The picture below was taken during a bus strike which caused unprecedented chaos in the city. According to the photographer, about 250,000 commuters who usually relied on public transportation to get to work were forced to drive their car and, consequently, find a parking spot in the city.
What car can you identify in the picture below? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage? We’d take whichever one is easiest to maneuver out! On a more serious note, we wouldn’t be unhappy with the blue Chevrolet Corvair parked on the left side of the photo, or with the blue Mercedes-Benz w108 just a few cars away.
