Cool stuff! Even a Checker cab.

Most of this stuff hasn't survived in its native land (Indiana, Michigan for the Checker, Ohio for the Jeep) other than if resto'ed and parked indoors all winter.

Is there a golden hawk with the supercharger in there somewhere?

I think I posted this before, but someone ought to do a minor restore (rat rod to specs), and run the Panamerica car down in the new race down in Mexico.

Or maybe one of the Mercedes:



Or what the heck, run one of the Studebakers!



This was a stage end in Durango, October 2011.

Cool Olds. Wonder if they have a '49 Caddy Sedanette? I wish I had the money to do one of these.

A French Willy??? How the heck did that get all the way there???

Studebaker....that one is for sale locally. $2-300.00.Freshly dragged from under the trees but too rusty according to the owner. He knows....he owns a bodyshop.



Eh....that's a Willy too, sort of. Willy frame/drivetrain with a 38(?) Chevy body and Chevy straight 6 (70s?), was funny watching all them bigger guys trying to fit behind the steering wheel.

I know a Jeep expert will be along eventually to enlighten us.

There were many Willys based Jeeps built abroad according to an old Jeep Buyers Guide I have. The book specifically mentions a French company "Hotchkiss" that built perfect copies of the Willys MB for years.

I wonder if any of the original WWII Jeeps were given French ID plates after the war so they could be licensed for civilian use when sold as surplus.

One of those pix is a BORGWARD ISABELLA! The one with the diamond in the grille center. I worked on a few in the early '60s.

Yes, it did say Isabella in the middle of the badge. I thought that was an interesting name for a car.

Here is the Avanti that somebody was asking for. I took this at the Studebaker museum in South Bend Indiana. Lots of old wagons that they got their start with.
