Wow, that's a nicely kept Pontiac! Speaking of old Pontiacs... here's a third generation Firebird. Not sure about the model year, though.

1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS 396.

Yes, Mike's Chevelle appears to be a 1971 model (note grille shape, single headlights, dual turn signal), in really nice condition too!
An apartment neighbor of mine had an earlier one in the late 1960s, an SS396 model with 4.88 differential gearing IIRC, top speed at engine redline was about 100 but it got there real quick! I drove it once to take him to the hospital after he cut himself.. whoa betsy...

The first car I remember my family owning when I was a kid was a great big Pontiac. It was a gorgeous, deep blue, two-door Parisienne. A monstrosity by today's standards, but deliciously desirable none the less. This is not that car, but I couldn't help wonder if at one time it possessed a more humble beauty of its own. Pentax SV/55 Super-Takumar, FP4 in Rodinal(Blazinal)

I have a dream that one day I'll go somewhere scenic and there will be lots of vintage cars, parked a long way apart, and no people to ruin the view or walk in front of you as I take a shot. And gorgeous old buildings and settlements with no cars parked to ruin the shot.

Then I woke up...

Airshows are worse; just as they do the final run and bank so that you can get a shot that isn't straight up the exhaust pipe, someone will stand up in front of you or - worse - wave a mobile in the middle of your frame.

Back to weddings, my favourite wedding "car" was when they hired an old fashioned red London bus (with the open platform at the back) for the guests to take them to the reception/party after the wedding. It was ribboned and then parked nicely...

Daimlers and Lanchesters were the choice of Royalty and serious nobility, those Rolls Royces were way too flashy.

I have fond memories of one of the last 'proper' Daimlers, the V8 Majestic Major. A big heavy car that went surprisingly fast and could be thrown around with gay abandon. Poor thing ended up banger racing I suspect.

Its simply lovely. Check out Lady Docker's Daimler.

Going back to my history lesson I seem to remember that many Lanchesters and Daimlers of the '20s and '30s (and before) were sleeve valve (for the USA think Pierce Arrow). This lack of valves and associated gear made them very, very quiet and well behaved.

Edit: The above may well be rubbish or at least mostly rubbish, I need to check my facts!

The problem with the sleeve valve engine was while reliable and silent, lubrication became problematic at above 1500 rpm, so were very limited in performance unless very large. Add in heavy coachwork, and the cars became renowned as rather stolid and old-fashioned and really rather fusty (like Queen Mary).

Following on Mike's theme, here's another International Harvester! This one has the newer "man on a tractor" logo. Some logo history here on this website: http://www.hansenwebdesign.com/truck/history_logo.html

International Harvester Loadstar 1600 (pre-1972 model with "butterfly hood").

Getting closer... It's an Austin Healey


I ask, can I take your picture? Thumbs up!

Mike, it's one of the earlier Austin Healeys, I believe when they still used a four-cylinder engine. It would be from the mid-1950s.


(I'm sure someone who knows Austin Healeys better than I do will reply with more specific information.)

The four cylinder A-Hs were known as 100 or 100S (rare). This one is badged 100. The grille is the correct shape for this.

Six cylinder was known as 100/6 before a change to the better known 3000.

Great fun when cheap!

I wasn't fast enough on my feet to get a picture of this one from the front.



There's another Skyline up ahead of it.


All the best,

You were pretty quick on the trigger with the multiple shots of the A-H, Mike! I recall as a teen I drove one off a used car lot, took it home and tried to persuade my dad we needed that car... no luck! Marvelous to drive with its short stubby shift lever and so low to the ground.

The blue Nissan Skyline GT appears to be following a buddy in a similar car...

Given that the last one was produced 44 years ago, I'd say it does. That's a late US-spec car, 1974-6.

It's old enough, I had mine until 2012 and it was a classic then! Those US spec bumpers somewhat ruin the utter gorgeousness of the Michelotti design though.

When those bumpers showed up on MGBs, the entire world reached for eye bleach. What a sad time that was
