Old Car At Metabolife Booth

Here is an old car that is pulled up to the Metabolife booth.

The booth does not appear to be well-attended.

The driver of the car must be out looking for the person who should be in the booth.

When you are out driving around, you never know what you will see.

I took this picture while out driving around.

I don’t know that I have ever seen a Metabolife booth. I don’t really even know what Metabolife is—Though I’m not fully certain one can get the things they need in life from a booth.

Maybe you will find the things you need in a library.

I located a Salon article where Bill Bradley and his wife walked past a Metabolife booth in New Hampshire in 1999 when Senator Bradley was seeking the 2000 Democratic Presidential nomination.

From the articleErnestine Bradley is much more charismatic on the stump than her terse hubby. Bradley was typically mellow as he careened past the Metabolife booth and Perfumania while Ernestine bubbled to voters, “Hi! You going to vote? I hope so. I hope you vote for the right guy! I’m the wife.”

I guess that article is proof that these booths did once exist.

If you know what kind of car that is, please leave a comment.

  1. Metabolife is an alleged weight-loss elixir. In practice it’s more like liquefied crack for Baptists.

    The car is a 1956 Chevrolet Bel-air. ’55s had smaller tail lights. The two-tone was only available with the Bel-air trim level.

    Why do I know these things …

  3. Well, Stan, I’m glad you do———-I had wondered what the car was and couldn’t quite tell without seeing the side view. And it is fun to know what distinguishes one year’s model from the next (I think).

  4. Kim, please depend upon we obsessives to catalog the minute differences among automobile models. Your life will be much less unpleasant. Besides, we’re only a google away.
