Waiting for gas

This vintage Plymouth is parked alongside what once was a gas tank, as well as a vintage Ford pickup. When this Plymouth was new, the list price was $1,392. The 217ci engine produced 95 hp. A change appreciated by most drivers was the switch from the foot-operated starter pedal to a push button on the dashboard. I was especially drawn to the vine growing inside the car and how it appears as if painted on the windshield.
