That's a '55 or '56 Sedan Delivery, and I know it's all about the tail lights but I can never remember which is which. They certainly had a sedan delivery thing happening at Antioch this year.

It's still for sale. The building, not the truck. The price has gone up. Still with a view of the harbor--with maybe the most beautiful collection of classic sailboats in the world. The owner is selling it but I think you'd better call Jill Knowles at the Christopher Agency.

I love those backroads all along the Quebec/New England borderland. Some of the sweetest, greenest country in North America (& some of the whitest and coldest in January). A border just makes everything more strange, vivid and interesting.
I feel lucky when I think of backroads I've been able to roam this year, from Mora County, New Mexico to the streets of El Paso to the Eastern Townships of Québec. The best roads are those going to places you've never heard of.
