1949 Crosley CD wagon on a pole


Mechanicsville, Virginia (VA), US
This 1949 Crosley wagon on a sign pole advertises Atlee Auto Service. The local landmark has been on display here for over 50 years.

In 2010, this car was in danger of being removed from the local landscape. The rusted and neglected car was deemed to be in violation of county zoning laws. Local residents petitioned to keep the car on display.

After Atlee Auto Service moved to the property, the car was taken down and restored. It was then placed on a shorter pole that met zoning regulations.
