Plan 59 has a fine collection of photographs and artwork featuring mid-twentieth century cars and trucks.
Some pretty good station wagons, too.

Here's a photo I saw and thought you (and your readers) might like

It is a tad surreal. In my haste I misread your comment as, “I saw it and thought of you (and your readers).” Which lent it a vaguely menacing ambiguity. Always a good way to start the day.

I find strong coffee is the best way to start the day, but I will try vague missred threats as a caffeine-free alternative in future. I'm sure when my business partner sees my todo-list he'll have some not so vague threats to wake me up.

Hm. Having given the matter some further thought, strong coffee might be less awkward socially. I’m partial to a mug or two of this magnificent beverage.

Yeah, those big Caddies still look good - but I always preferred the Chryslers - "Imperial" and "New Yorker" - and Packard "Caribbean", they have the same future-longing design but without quite so much of the Buck-Rogers hi camp fins and retro rocket tail lights.
I think the earlier Series 60 Caddies are far superior to the 62 Series.
The artwork itself is pretty gorgeous - I love the 59 Imperial LeBaron http://www.plan59.com/cars/cars009.htm in its' washed out New York + Chauffeur setting.
