Pictures 33.5 and 33.7.

From time to time, the newspapers noticed the neglected car.  The upper photo accompanied a January 15, 1974 Times Picayune article soliciting ideas for its preservation in some new home.  The second photo caught it on a typical New Orleans rainy day in November 1975, reflected in the puddle next to it.  The caption recorded a promise from unnamed officials to move it to “a museum collection”, unspecified, with no timetable mentioned.  In fact, the deteriorating car would languish in this spot for several more years.Times Picayune (first picture), AP Wirephoto (second picture)
