Here’s another old Chevy – a “woody”.
For those of you “young-uns” now scratching your heads about that term, let me explain. A “woody” was a station wagon with wood (REAL wood!) on the sides. (You may be familiar with some of the new PT Cruisers that have the fake wood trim on their sides, which is a nod to the old “woodies”).
If you happened to be traveling and saw one of these cars, it was mandatory that you punch your traveling companion in the arm and scream “Woody” at the same time. Have no idea who thought up that one, but it must have been a boy!
Anyway, I saw this one on another trip to North Carolina and just had to take a photo.
And this painting will conclude my car series of paintings - hope you enjoyed them!

What!! No slugbugs??? I remember woodies, but never knew the punching game applied to them. But VW Bugs!! Major sore arm territory!! Thank goodness they weren't too common in our part of the world then.
