Can You Identify The Car Parked In Front Of This Burning Meth Lab?

Illustration for article titled Can You Identify The Car Parked In Front Of This Burning Meth Lab?

I love found photos, and this yard-sale score is right up there on my all-time favorites list with the police evidence Polaroids that came with my ex-cop Crown Victoria. The sun-scorched sandy desert yard suggests that the location is somewhere in California's High Desert region, which means that it doesn't take a law-enforcement mastermind to guess the origins of the house fire in the background. The question is: what kind of car is that full-sized Detroit machine? I think it has the look of an early-70s Chrysler product, maybe a Fury… but the GM paint shop was a big fan of that shade of Bilirubin Brown back then, so maybe it's an Olds or Buick? What do you think, dear readers?

"Bilirubin Brown"

Murilee, that there is comedy gold! Had my son not had a pesky case of jaundice when he was born (he's fine by the way), that gem would've flown right over my meager brain.

Oh, and as for the car, I've no idea.
