Tire Pressure

Thanks to eBay, I was able to track down an original owner’s manual for the ’51 for less than ten bucks.

33 pages in all, the water stained booklet is full of great illustrations and fairly obvious maintenance tips. However, the tire pressure feature on page 19 really got me. Not the information necessarily, but the cartoon-like depiction of the tires themselves—objects I never really considered to have much personality.
