Too close for comfort!

OK, I admit it. This photograph and accompanying information made me laugh out loud! This 1958 Ford Mercury station wagon was photographed outside Jack Thrasher Ford, once located on east Wabash Avenue in Terre Haute, Indiana. Yes, as someone wrote in blue ink pen at the top of the photo, two people were welded inside!

According to the description, There were bars welded over the windows after two married people got inside the vehicle. They were supposed to live in the car for an extended period of time but the promotion didn’t last as long as planned because they got on each others’ nerves too much.” I love it!

This photo is part of the Vigo County Historical Society collection.
