I wonder what all those snaps are on the front seat of the touring?

Larry,

They look like bright plated trim upholstery tacks to me. New or repaired seat upholstery? Top looks really nice and new also. Just a guess.

Texas didn't have outhouses at rest areas during that period. To be period correct, it would have been white steps over the fence and trail leading behind the brush. :-)

It was well into the 50s and early 60s before Texas highways had "facilities". There were many "rest areas" with shade trees and picnic tables but no facilities other than steps.

We were on a Saturday tour several years ago and stopped at an antique shop,out back was an outhouse with a satellite dish and a basement apartment for rent sign, i have a picture somewhere but can't locate it.

Can't have a story about out houses without including a brick one.

The two story out house at Cedar Lake is only a few miles from me.

I've been to Nevada City Montana and have seen the two story outhouse. I have to admit I was impressed with the ingenuity however very concerned for the well-being of the person on the first floor.

There you are, sitting on the lower level, just getting comfortable, when a voice from above hollers..."Bombs Away."
