Pic # 1 This is Saturday, July 23rd of 1960. The place is south of the outskirts of Denver, Colorado. It is 7:00 in the evening, and Sheldon Wolf is leaving Joe Wildcat's Truckstop and Cafe' after fueling up his truck and getting some supper in the cafe'. This is facing south in the direction where Sheldon Wolf will travel to deliver brand new 1960 Plymouth automobiles to various dealerships; The white station wagon and the blue sedan is bound for Antonito, Colorado. The red convertible, gold & white coupe and the blueish gray station wagon is bound for Albuquerque. The black coupe and the green sedan are bound for LasCruces, New Mexico. Sheldon, like other independent truckers contracted by Great West Auto Transport, had picked up the load of cars at the Union Pacific Railroad depot in Denver...Those cars arrived along with other cars by rail from Detroit to Denver. By the way...The blueish gray station wagon is the one that Al and Marge Coyote had Dave Pine Martin order for them at Albuquerque Chrysler Plymouth. The highway, part of Route 285, is one of those narrow, concrete slab highways that is barely wide enough for two trucks to pass by each other. Despite the road being narrow, the speed limit on it is 70 mph because of it being so rural. Of course, not many motorists ever do abide by that 70 mph speed limit.
Pic # 2 Joe Wildcat sure believes in loud advertising, as is obvious by the sign.
Pic # 3 Close up of the front of Sheldon's rig and of the highway.
Pic # 4 One of the truck drivers, an otter, is at the cafe' counter having supper and coffee.
Pic # 5 The waitress, a cheetah, makes sure her customers get the service, and coffee refills, they want...The female cheetah does get her most generous tips from her male customers.
Pic # 6 A raccoon and a bear are also among the clientele presently at the cafe'.
Pic # 7 A lion driving for B.F.C. Hauling has just arrived to the truck stop...The reason the truck he is driving has no raised exhaust stacks is because it is one of those gasoline powered trucks which were common back in the day.
Pic # 8 Antonito is near the New Mexico border, thus that will keep Sheldon on the road until around midnight before he stops to get some sleep for the night. Sheldon encounters this curve sometime during that night drive, but he has driven this highway many times and knows how dangerous that curve is.
Pic # 9 This shows the original photo I took in New Mexico, and the comparison of the creation I made it into.
