It would be a lot of work to restore that old girl, but likely worth it.
But can ya see it running around the 'Ol Wolf Mine abode?
A water bag! Don't see those much anymore.
I remember seeing a water bag hanging off a car.. not sure if I'm remembering my grandparents or my parents.
Yeah, those canvas water bags aren't easy to find. A shame too - provided a cool (not cold) drink when left on a handy tree branch in the wind and shade.
I used to run a water bag on the front of my pickup. Like Anon says above - gave you a cool drink of water, and it had a unique flavor - can't really describe it. Probably was bad for me, though.
It has some funky headlight visors. Anybody know more about them?
In 1965 or thereabouts we drove across country from CA to IL and back along the northern states. We did it again but this time along TX and LA then down to the FLA Keys. It was not unusual at all to see cars with water bags. In fact, upon seeing a car without a water bag, if the attention of the driver could not be gotten, we'd think, Oh that poor soul. Water bags were not merely a feature of long desert travels, nor of mountain passes. Oft it was far and few the sources of water and an overheated radiator was a source of sorrow. Cars would be counted pulled out alongside the road to let the radiator cool off. Driver would share knowledge of the road they had passed.
I grew up in Idaho in the 1940's and everybody had a water bag for when the car overheated. And why did they overheat? Because of the water bag in front of the radiator!
