I like that kooky Cadillac pick-up truck thingy from Auto Acres. I'd love to commute in one of those!

Thanks for all the comments folks. Make sure you check out the 100's of other slides on the Flickr link. They are awesome!

Thanks for the additional info Ray. I was hoping that someone would let all of us know if any of these places have survived.
