1948 Chevrolet Fleetline; 1959 Chevrolet Impala; Santa Fe. And Comancheria.

Best 2 books I've read about New Mexico Lately: Pekka Hamamainen's Comanche Empire and Hampton Sides' Blood and Thunder

From Michael S Moore in Santa Fe:
"OK, I wouldn't recommend any tourist town at "high season" and certainly not Santa Fe, New Mexico, but I had to go back down there to check on our show and saw this mystery vehicle near the Plaza on a sunny morning;New Mexicans are known for massaging sheet metal but, best guess? '48 Chevy Fleetline...but it's only a guess.

 "This one's way easier; the license plate even said "1959"

"This one?(" --MSM
