Econoline & 1952 Dodge Job-Rated

This just in from our South Saskatchewan correspondent,  Alex Emond:
"I espied this Dodge at a farm halfway between Vanguard and Pambrun, Saskatchewan. It is interesting how you can lose so much paint and get this surface rust, yet have no harsh body-eating rust. This truck, which is older than I am, looks good to go, and even handsomer than moi. Get yer Hollywood Hilton valet parking dude to park this unit. Much nicer than a 4-door Porsche...
"Check out this fine Econoline unit in beautiful Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan. Looks original in every way. Maybe even the air in the tires is from the early 60's"-AE
