San Francisco Street Sighting - 1949 Kaiser Traveler
Lady Luck Car Club, an enthusiast group that focuses on strong, independent women who work on their own cars. She built the Kaiser herself from a junkyard hulk over a four-year period. Her name is Marilyn (the car, not the owner). There's probably a lot on this Kaiser that isn't original or isn't stock, and that's okay. It exists because someone cared enough to rescue it, and that's what's important. I admit that when I saw this car I expected it was probably owned by some twentysomething hipster guy who thought buying an unusual old car and painting it flat black would be ironic and retro until the novelty wore off. I'm glad I was wrong. Marilyn has a good home.
