And the sad part is that we have replaced these awesome REAL cars with the garbage throw away cars we have today. What a shame!

Hey Bowtie, remember Belmont Motors? Local purveyors of "lightly" used musclecars? ;D These guys were like the local "Stick City" around here in the late sixties/early seventies.

No, I never moved to the lower mainland until 1978, so I must have missed them.

Yup, would have been before your time. I didn't know that, we must have met pretty much as soon as you moved here!

Geelong Australia, Preston Motors, Chevrolet Truck Division. I notice they also sold Maple Leaf Trucks, which I suspect came from Canada.

Yup, Maple Leafs were Canadian built GMC. I remember when I was in my early teens there was a 1939/40ish 1.5 ton Maple Leaf flat deck parked in a yard on 124th in Maple Ridge for the longest time.

It's commonly called a sloper.  Australia tudor sedans had a sloping roof like this - both GM and Ford.

Here are a couple pics of slopers:
