    How funny…after all those years of operating, the modern smooth styling of that Ford Falcon is just catching up to the PCC’s sleek look. Compare it to the ’50’s cars behind it. The gas pumps are already caught up. Of course, the placement of that fire hydrant was an accident waiting for a skateboarder, a phenomenon that was just coming into full swing at this time.
