Russian race cars look a little like Hudsons...

Think of how much junk you could stuff in that trunk...

Sunglass special, partly to cut the glare and partly so nobody recognizes me.

When designs and white walls were pudgy...

Keryx would like the pink car at the bottom.

BigV 04-30-2020 11:43 AM

I'd like the pink Cadillac in the middle please.

Gravdigr 05-01-2020 02:47 PM

The one parked at the Y?

I've driven that one.

A few times.

The ride is wonderful.

What, a trailer full of batteries?

Gravdigr 05-06-2020 12:39 PM

Devious motherfuckers!

I prefer liquid exploding dinosaurs, but the times they are a-changin'...

xoxoxoBruce 05-06-2020 02:38 PM

Yes they are, but that thing copies an engine that was meant for a hot rod and they don't have room for batteries.

Hot stuff...

Gravdigr 05-07-2020 02:19 PM

I've ran my (first) chipper so long and hard on several occasions that you could see the manifolds glow orange in the low light of the evening, but that (^^^) is ridiculous.

But really high horse engines do produce insane amounts of heat.

Check Hub light...

fargon 05-08-2020 10:05 AM

That's what happens when you don't check the Lub level in your hubs.

Diaphone Jim 05-08-2020 01:09 PM

Got carried away with 15 minutes of Friday morning goose bumps.

More hot stuff, nice video:

This is only a model but of a rig the did exist, I've seen some.
Of course none had that Dominator size carb on them, that's just silly.

A limo for the whole family to go along...

Attachment 70737

I absolutely guarantee you'll get pulled over and likely a, "Step out of the car please", while you wait for the dogs to arrive too.

Attachment 70738

Pretty, amazing what they can do with paint.

Attachment 70739

The article said 4 door hardtop which invalidated any other information.
But I love it anyway.

I like the original, too, but I have to admit the taillight is a beaut.

Great ad and it sold.

BigV 06-10-2020 10:49 PM

DJ, you're right on all counts.

Gorgeous car

Exactly the right ad for promoting it widely

The hot rod version is all that, a bag of chips *and* a happy ending.

Griff 06-11-2020 04:43 PM

Nice. Not sure about the interior of the rod but everything else is sweet.

Agreed, white interiors turn me off... in cars and houses.;)

I like this car a lot, very classy has a lot of Ford/Lincoln style.
This was before Ferrari figured out the people who will spend really big bucks want something outrageous, not classy.

Griff 06-12-2020 07:56 AM

Now that is cool.

Diaphone Jim 06-12-2020 12:55 PM

Beautiful Pinin Farina, with about the last of the big aluminum drum brakes.
I think current prices are in the $500K range.

Gravdigr 06-12-2020 03:51 PM

Now that is a damn fine-looking automobile.

From every angle.

This Pontiac and trailer setup looks clever but it too low, that thing will high center on a speed bump.
Maybe the car and trailer are air-bagged.

When a car becomes a stagecoach...

glatt 06-24-2020 09:12 AM

I really like those two photos. You could spend half an hour looking at them.

How did the driver climb up on the roof? Presumably he did it at just about every stop, multiple times a day. And if he's doing it that often, he has developed a routine. Is there a little step somewhere out of view? Surely he doesn't climb on the customer's luggage or on the parcels. Does he climb up the open rear door? The various window sills are certainly strong enough to use as steps and the running board gives him a little head start. I read somewhere that UPS drivers are taught how to climb into their trucks to be as efficient as possible. But I can imagine there are little foot holds bolted to the side of the car on the other side.

He pulled that car into that exact location, and has done so before. Why didn't he park a foot or two closer to the gas pump so he wouldn't have to bend awkwardly under the post office sign? Was that only to make it easier for the customers to get out the rear door? Or was he just not paying close attention to his driving?

Look at that luggage. Nice and strong and square for efficient stacking. Everything is soft ballistic nylon duffel bags now and wouldn't stack nearly as well.

Looks cramped and warm in that back seat. I bet it is a little smelly too.

Gravdigr 06-24-2020 04:31 PM

I can hear the car groaning.

Diaphone Jim 06-24-2020 07:01 PM

It says "Baby Chicks" on the cardboard flats.
I'll bet they were a bit ruffled upon arrival.
Funny to bar just the back windows.
And the Barnsdale sight glass pumps have taken much abuse.
Great definition. 20 cents a gallon?

I figure the driver goes from the running board to one foot on the front fender then the other foot on the window sill of the drivers door, or maybe there's a step ladder around that side which stays at the post office.
A 40 quart milk can will weigh near 100 lbs so a ladder would be a big help.


At least the roads were better than they were for these guys...

Diaphone Jim 06-25-2020 12:27 PM

Who would want to go to Pittsburg anyway?

"A 40 quart milk can will weigh near 100 lbs so a ladder would be a big help."
The ones on their sides at the top of the load are probably empties.

Gravdigr 06-25-2020 03:52 PM

They most definitely took the round-a-bout way to Pittsburgh...

1000 miles?

Griff 06-25-2020 04:03 PM

Yeah a Southern Route would have been easier. I wonder where they were near Binghamton? Kirkwood would have been a great place to find a flood. But we've got a lot a nice places to get stuck.

Electric Caddy coming in August.

Griff 06-27-2020 10:34 AM

Not really for me but I would think Cadillac drivers would go for it. Now produce an electric CJ-5...

Coming up for auction, the worlds most iconic and maybe most famous hot rod.

Diaphone Jim 06-29-2020 12:52 PM

Didn't that thing sell last year?

xoxoxoBruce 06-30-2020 12:23 AM

It's achieved the status that it will never be driven again just pasted from investor to investor.

A very rare woody. Because they cost twice what the 2 wheel drive version cost they didn't sell many... then they rotted away.

Griff 06-30-2020 07:21 AM

Still, that's pretty rock and roll.

glatt 06-30-2020 07:32 AM

I saw a Woody in the wild when I was a kid around 1980 or so. It was parked near a beach in California. The wood panels were all bleached by the sun and it was pretty beat up.

It was parked on the little Main Street of this tiny beach town north of San Francisco. I wonder what town that was?

May need a clue, but not too easy.

glatt 06-30-2020 12:16 PM

I definitely need a clue. I don't remember.

Gravdigr 07-01-2020 03:38 PM

Google don't know about it.
