I think run-flats were created by evil Chiropractors. Yes, AAA and cell phones have had a big impact.

Many years ago I got to sit behind the wheel, but not drive, a 1937 maroon example of this glorious automobile.

Diaphone Jim 07-29-2019 06:00 PM

I have always liked turned metal like the dash.
I had a friend that did it, but called it jeweled.

xoxoxoBruce 07-29-2019 10:56 PM

Because it's so universally liked, that's one of the first patterns they copied when they started making plastic imitation trim.

I was over at Dollar General and saw this redneck restoration.

That's a proper rat rod, says so right there on top of the ratiator.

Here in NC classic and antique cars have a regular license plate. To qualify for an antique plate there is paperwork involved and it can't be driven more than 1500 miles a year. In SC I could get antique or classic plates with no restrictions and cheap insurance.

This would make a good road trip car...

Good to have a first aid kit in your ambulance.

And for resale, nothing like a hearse (uh, funeral car) for low mileage,

Willys Ute, about 1939.

Diaphone Jim 08-13-2019 11:47 AM

I am embarrassed to say that I didn't recognize the front end or hood ornament.
Next time I will.

xoxoxoBruce 08-13-2019 10:30 PM

That's OK, a lot of middle aged men don't know what their Willys looks like anymore. :haha:

Don't say what the range is.

Diaphone Jim 08-21-2019 02:29 PM

I never met a Lotus I didn't like.
Range: 250 miles (or an hour and 15 minutes at top speed).
I assume that would be accomplished in dead quiet and would
like to find out.
I am afraid I don't even know the names and functions of some of the components.

Diaphone Jim 08-21-2019 02:49 PM

I don't like that there are no photos I can find of any of the mechanical guts or anything like a cutaway drawing for the Evija.

xoxoxoBruce 08-22-2019 12:03 AM

What do you want for $2.1 million... +6% sales tax and tags and inspection. Oh, shipping, dealer prep, undercoat, scotch guard, and wax on/wax off. You know that could get expensive.

Last weekend at the Woodward Ave Dream Cruise, right hand throttle, left hand brake.
Ontario must have lenient standards & inspections unless it's a joke.

68 Sedan de Ville. I had a Coupe de Ville of that vintage. Loved that car.

Gravdigr 08-28-2019 03:26 PM

I expect that one is being held for the motor...


Looks like a pretty solid car.

Metallica's lead singer, Jim Hetfield, donated 10 of his cars to the Peterson Museum, but the article only named 9. Kept the really good ones.

Diaphone Jim 09-02-2019 12:20 PM

I'm not a big fan of the normal run of customized, hot-rodded old cars.
The 1934 Packard Roadster "Aquarius" is masterful, however.
It is a treat from all aspects, inside and out (blue steering wheel and shift knob!):

Such a thorough job means that there is an actual '34 Packard Roadster body still out there somewhere.

Griff 09-02-2019 01:58 PM

I really like driveable...

Diaphone Jim 09-02-2019 02:27 PM

"I really like driveable... "
I did think of the possibility of high-centering on a Botts Dot.

xoxoxoBruce 09-02-2019 11:35 PM

Yes, they are all to low for my taste, but if they were given to me I could fix that. :cool:

'49 Dodge... uh, I guess you'd call it a jitney?

Looks like a touring car like might have been at Yosemite.

Wouldn't it need doors for that?

xoxoxoBruce 09-03-2019 11:12 PM

Yes touring but a warmer climate than Yosemite or Yellowstone, maybe the Everglades.

I saw that video. It sure looked like the camera car could have missed that Chevelle...Just sayin'.

That may be true, but she didn't have much time to react and what we saw on camera isn't necessarily what she was looking at for those last few seconds.
It doesn't look like the hit did much damage to the rear of the Chevelle.
What are the lane markings in the left lane, solid white on the right generally means don't cross it, and I Don't know what the diamond/double arrow in the center means in WA.

fargon 09-07-2019 04:50 PM

Car pool lane.

I love Utes, My El Camino and SSR are sort of American attempts. There was talks of GM bringing a left hand drive version here but that fell through when they stopped making cars in Australia. Not just GM, everybody.
