Trip, you went way beyond the call of duty. That's not just some Thunderbirds, that's every Thunderbird. On behalf of my country I'd like to thank you...we're all just proud as peacocks. I'd make a speech about it, but there's a war on.

So, that's a fairly recent movie, Cletus?

Hey, I've never heard of DAF. Deutch Auto Foundry? Did they buy stampings from other makers? A couple of the trucks have cabs that look suspicisously akin to 1956 Ford F-100s...and the little red car looks like a Datsun 510. Thanks, BBP!

Van Doorne Aanhangwagen Fabriek, originates from Eindhoven, a short bicycle ride from here. Founded in 1928, started making trucks in late 40s and cars in mid 50s (until Volvo bought the car division in 1975) . DAF developed the Variomatic, among others. DAF also built buses and military vehicles. DAF became unsolvable in 1993 and had to shed most of its divisions, but DAF Trucks remains. They suffered a lot during the crisis last year, but they're getting better.

If you can get by with all the Dutch, http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/DAF_(fabrikant) is a very interesting read, plus it has links to images of all the models.

Okay...nice set.

That's about a '65 Lincoln. Never seen one so low. Love the yellow '67 Merc, and the yellow Ford business coupe. I believe that's a Willys pickup. Black Cadillac sedan is a Sixty Special...but it must be a Canadian version...I don't recall the gold fender badge. Black Cad Convertible is a 1960, NOT a 1959!

Hey, Trip...Joe's Garage..."there was just enough room to cram the drums in the corner over by the Dodge. It was a '54 with a bashed-up door..."

Thanks!

Hey Rope I'm glad you liked those pictures & here's a 1954 Dodge for you,the door look's kind of bashed-up.
Well the whole car is really rough !

Click me...a true story 8)


Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America

The Bonneville salt flats had seen some strange things
But the strangest thing yet was a jet without wings
Once as a jet it played in the stars
But now on the ground it's the king of all cars

Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America

Half airplane half auto now famous worldwide
The Spirit of America, the name on the side
The man who would drive her Craig Breedlove by name
A daring young man played a dangerous game

Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America

With a J-47, a jet for his power
Craig Breedlove had averaged four-o-seven per hour
Both man and machine had given fair warn
They'd set a new record on that warm August morn.

Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America
Spirit of America

It's a Fiat. I think they were called Spiders. It looks like it this is maybe a European version, brought to the States on a grey-market deal. It's pretty rough, but cars have been brought back from much worse.

Photographer has the flash on.

I'd like to comment more on some of the latest postings, but I'm very busy...I dig the black cat-eye Comet.
