Certainly everyone has seen the Christmas classic, It's a Wonderful Life.
These are two of the actual cars used in the original movie.

Was it Bert or Ernie that drove the cab? The other was a cop, I think.

Anywho...

This is one of the more interesting episodes of Jay Leno's Garage. A magnificently restored 36 Cord. My God, what a beautiful car:love: I learned a lot about Cord that I didn't know. Very interesting show.



Much more beautiful bigger.

The Cords and Auburns were gorgeous.

Rule of thumb, your mileage may vary...

Was Leno funny enough to make all that money?

xoxoxoBruce 12-23-2018 12:54 AM

Funny enough, plus frugal. While he was making $40 million a year hosting the Tonight Show, he didn't touch that money but did comedy clubs and shows for money to live on. I read his collection was worth $50 million but it must cost him at least a million a year to support the facility and employees to maintain them. It's good to be the king.

I was watching him ride a then new Triumph Bonneville.

His chin sticks out from beneath a full face helmet.:lol2:

That's funny.

I never found the guy laugh out loud funny. Humorous, but not funny.

Almost forgot why I came...

Would you give $5000 for an 86 Plymouth Reliant Wagon?

What if I told you it was turbo-charged?

What if I told you it was one of maybe 60 ever made?

For the military?

And was never available to the general public?

No wood grain = 1 of 1

Golden Bronze Metallic paint = 1 of 3

Yeah, no, me neither.:lol2:

Ford's Mach 1 Mustang concept, circa 1966:

Attachment 65919

I like it. Kinda.

It looks like two different cars, kinda.

Gravdigr 12-23-2018 12:41 PM

Looks like a MatchBox, or HotWheels, edition.

Put some redlines on it, and I'll take it. In that color.

I'd take it too. If it has sunroof. Or the seat is directly on the floor pan. Or comes with a voucher for a trip in a time machine to 1966 when I was able to fit in that squashed cabin.

Pretty though.
