TWO GM CLASSICS Editors Pick!        
The picture quality isn't very good, but the subjects are superb! One fine day in 1968, a 1956 Chevy Corvette and a 1941 Electro-Motive Division E6A posed side-by-side at New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal. The two E-units are on a ready track, and departed later that afternoon on the northbound PANAMA LIMITED. The 4003 has been recently repainted. It wears the large lettering and numbers introduced in 1967; but still has the old nose treatment, where the orange extends up over the top headlight. It should have a split-rail nose emblem, but one hasn't been applied yet! (month approximate)

Jim Satterwhite General Michael, I was at Chanute AFB in Rantoul IL in the spring of 1968 and I rode behind these (Chicago or Centralia) almost every weekend. I had to get off that base (as Eric Burton and the Animals sang). What a classic! 7/20/2009 5:33:15 AM
