V.I.S.I.T. – A Little Something for Everybody Edition

This short and sweet edition of V.I.S.I.T. is an all-skate, a look at several cars that all of us can enjoy in some way. Check it.
I was driving home from work in the not too distant past, when I found myself pulling alongside a transport truck, or as I call it, a car hauler. I’m always intrigued by the variety of cars that one truck will haul. Variety is the spice of life, eh? Anywho, the first thing that caught my eye was what I believe is a Westy. You experts can probably tell me what year model it is.

I should probably start keeping an old camera in my truck, like our friend longrooffan does. You can tell I was scrambling to find my phone and open the camera to get a good shot of the old F-100, on it way to a new home.

There was also a nice old Cherokee, a Tiguan (I think), a Chrysler Imperial (I think), and what I believe is a 1962 Impala 2-door hardtop. Off-topic: I can’t be the only one impressed by the engineering that goes into a car hauler. To see a car held 12 feet in the air by a couple of supports has always impressed me.

    The Impala’s a ’63

    That doesn’t appear to be an Imperial, rather, a ’65-66 Chrysler Newport. The Westy’s probably mid-70s vintage.

      The Westy is a ’74-up. Prior to ’74, the pop top was hinged at the front. Seventy-one, two and three are the only ones I can actually identify by year. The ’71 has the small taillights, but the new wheels due to disc brakes. The ’72 has the big taillights, but retains the old low mounted front turn signals. And the ’73 is the only one, in Westy trim, has the new front signals with the front hinged roof. Not that anybody actually cares…

    “Parking Lot” is how the truckers on CB refer to a car hauler, or ‘rolling parking lot’.

    I see odd collections like this on transporters from time to time. It pleases me to assume that they all belong to one person.

      I always assumed they were sold on ebay being delivered to various spots
