Don't know what, where, or when, except what I see in the picture.

Chech Republic

I found out from elspode it was a 1941 Horch (1 of the Auto Union 4) chassis that was rebodied later. But still don't know by who, for whom, or exactly when, but I'd guess after the war.

I'd sent the picture to NAG because her husband is a retired Fire Captain, and I'll be damned if she didn't find the answer.:facepalm:


November 1945, a team of Brno, Czech Republic purchased this vehicle built in 1941 Horch 853 Sportcabriolet. The car was rebuilt in a fast delivery of fire of six people and the fire engine at the contact point brigade. Design and construction belonged T.Lepil between 1946 and 1949.
Hey, I was right about "after the war". :blush:

Meh, fill it with water and put fish in it.

That ski-ulance is something you want to see coming towards you,
and something you don't...

No need to go around to the drive through, just pick up the building with that sucker, and spin the window around to you. :haha:

I see it's got the EconoBoost engine.

xoxoxoBruce 01-12-2015 06:13 PM

It's not EconoBoost, it's EcoBoost. Ford choosing that name was a very slick move, as it leads people to think things Ford doesn't claim. :haha:
It's a turbo-charged motor which is old hat, Ford turbo-charged Thunderbirds back in the 80s. Have to admit though, committing to turbos is a ballsy move for Ford.

glatt 01-12-2015 09:10 PM

You're right. I mixed the name up as I was typing.

I thought it was amusing. There's nothing ecological about a supercar like that.

It's extremely cool though.

xoxoxoBruce 01-12-2015 09:23 PM

Very cool, it's a full out competition car. Technical marvel, over 600 hp, sexy as hell design, but alas, no place for groceries. :headshake

Not in regards solely to the Ford GT, but, in general:

There has to be reason, and I'm bothered just enough to ask about it now:

Why are the brake calipers on the front mounted on the rear of the rotor, and the calipers on the back mounted to the front of the rotor?
