I give it some props for at least having lights on the front and rear!

But no cup holders.

But you could cut the yard in comfort!

Never did figure out why.
I've seen a few people(permanent type) put one of those bobble head owls on their roof. I guess to scare the birds away.

In some areas, the police actually wanted them removed because too many drug deals were arranged from them.

Pop,

I watched that one unfold from the Long Distance Operator Services side of the independent industry. The payphones in Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport were a prime example!

Just before I retired I saw an article that discussed the status of payphones in NYC. It stated that the vast majority of the payphones don't work. But the revenues for posting advertisements on the booth or kiosk are so good they leave them in place and pay the associated costs. Plus Superman needs somewhere to change I suppose!

I am truly surprised! Did you notice if it was an AT+T branded (Markings) phone or a local Independent Telephone Company? The independents seem to do a much better job keeping the remaining payphones working.

Metro Atlanta was like that in some areas. In other areas they wanted more payphones. Then the government sponsored "Life Line" cellular service pretty much put an end to the need for payphones and pagers!

We have stored our 5th wheel hitch just like this one. Saves room in the garage when needing a flat surface in the TV truck bed. Chain and padlocks keep it reasonably secure at the outdoor storage facility.
