Dear Classic American,... I wonder if Classic American readers can provide an answer to a mystery?
In the early 1970s, I used to commute daily from Cumbria to Manchester on the M6. On the other carriageway morning and evening I spotted a convoy of US cars, three or four, all white, and without wheel trims. Initially, the vehicles were Checker six door airport limousines, and were replaced by full size four door sedans, possibly Fords or Chevies. I don’t know how far south on the M6 they travelled, but wonder if they were perhaps connected to the Burtonwood USAF base, which was in operation at that time.
It would be great to solve the mystery with the help of your readers.
It’s another Classic American mystery! Answers?
