Bay Area Sightings: 60 C10, Corvair van, 1992 F150

from Michael Moore, a few miscellaneous sightings from somewhat sunny California; 
"Your basic boxy Ford 4x4 work truck, still with its original nasty coloration but with those ubiquitous white spoked ‘mags’...

 "…and a spiffy ’68 Chevy stepside, a bit too spiffy [and rarely driven, according to the mechanic who was working on it] for my taste.  I’ve always really liked the look of those ’67 - ’68 Chevs; had two in succession for twenty years [pp. 24 - 75 in my Auto Biographies];

"…finally, most rare Corvair on the Oakland/Berkeley border. Looks sectioned but it’s just a Corvair, lowered a bit..."--MSM
