Chevrolet Fleetline Aerosedan

from Alex Emond, our man in southwest Saskatchewan:
"Just back from a few days out Ponteix way. Just ' next door ' in Aneroid, Sask. sits this 1942(?) Chevrolet Fleetline Aerosedan. It appears to be an original  with no damage and up-to-date plates. I think somebody just tools around locally, and keeps it in the garage in winter. And the years just keep sliding by. It is quite a beautiful coupe, borrowing some style from the Chrysler (and De Soto) Airflows of the Thirties. I'm going to track down the owner on my next trip out there.
The old Bus Stop sign  was in a church basement in Hazenmore, Sask. Cheers-AE"
