Vintage for Your Sunday Best

It's fun to choose something out-of-the-ordinary for a photograph now and then, and such was the case with this old Chevrolet pickup for "Your Sunday Best."  I've posted one or two other images of it, but still have some more.  It was a surprise find, and the snowy day turned out to be great for photography.

(Adding this post to Weekly Top Shot, too.)
