From the Portland Streets

On a long walk in SE last weekend, I spotted this first generation Plymouth Valiant. Built somewhere between '60-'62, this one still looks pretty pristine, considering it sports Alaska plates.

In the story I've made up about this car, its driven daily by one of the sisters from the nearby convent. In the top left of the picture is the front archway of the Sisters of Reparation of the Sacred Wounds of Jesus.

The rear is pretty interesting. The car definitely has a lot of personality. Those brake lights are like condescending eyes, and that tire cover...

Love this front grille emblem. That logo is more fitting for a pack of cigarettes, or maybe a brand of gum.
