1955 - Time for another Jalopy!

Here's a wild photo of #98
Jim Walker, brother of
friend Bob Walker. The
car says it is owned by the
Marsonet Brothers on
Victoria Avenue here in
Fort William(now Thunder Bay),
Ontario. That rub rail is about 16"
high and if you hit this at speed,
you are bound to rip something
off your car. The building on the
right is the present day Exhibition Coliseum, and where Jim is trying to rip up the
rub rail and about a hundred feet of fence is now a paved parking lot. This is a little
tribute to Jim. "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot!"....thank you Joanie Mitchell
