Buick Eight, 1950-ish OHV in-line eight motor, Dynaflow fluid coupling “automatic” transmission uses only top gear unless low is manually selected for special need. Bellevue, Washington. Can't ID that license plate...

Doug,
Pretty sure that is a 1950 model, Sedanette Fastback. My family had the 1949 model. My dad's first car, pretty sure, after coming back from the war. Legroom! Buick Eight.
The one in your photos is nicely preserved.

Intresting, Larry... The sculpturing along the side looks quite different between the two. Grille is different, turn signals... Is that you gazing at the camera?

There were some differences between the ‘49 and ‘50 but nothing like the amount of year to year difference that started happening in the later ‘50’s when annual styling changes really took off.
Yes, that’s me, wishing for an Edelbrock manifold.

That's a 1967 - just like the tag says. A high point in Beetles.

I think this is a Beetle too, but it's a bit more... how shall we say... undercover.

Doug, as I recall, that Continental required that the engine be pulled in order to change the spark plugs!

haha... probably not the only car have that 'feature'. As I think I recall, the Sunbeam Tiger required diving under the dashboard to reach the rear spark plugs of its Ford v8.
Oh, and note the above car's "suicide" rear doors!

Fascinating how many cars had bits that you must get to that were blocked; especially spark plugs... And they they used to go on and on about how much it cost to design them and the designers would be paid good money to do it.

IRC, the big Citroens had a hole cut in the body above the rear spark plug for the tool to go through. A simple solution no one bothered to copy.

Edit: and no sooner had I typed and submitted that when I remembered all those oil filters that were neatly hidden behind something so you could just see them but couldn't even touch them. I once had to drain the coolant out of the engine and take off the radiator to change an oil filter that had jammed so tight we reckoned it was the one fitted at the factory and left untouched for years. And I had a similar spark plug that took the local service agent a few days to sort out. Luckily they did it for free and put it on display...


Regards, David

PS There's a lot to be said for the 2CV though and it's all good ...

For a car guy, nothing as it comes direct from the factory is ever good enough.

Ford either made an awful lot of '32 coupes, or most of the rest have been allowed to rust into oblivion!

I wonder if the Wartburgs and their trailers are color-coordinated. I see a drip-pad under the front...

1951 Ford business coupe
4L/239.4 cu.in. V8, valve-in-block.
My car is behind the yellow vette... When I saw the nice Ford I had to stop and snap! As a teen I rebuilt and drove a 1950 2-door.

My first car was a 1949 Ford coupe. It was black with chartreuse top and fender skirts. Sharp!
Thanks for the pictures.

It was really clean and well kept! I have my kids' emergency potty break to thank for this photo. The Fairlane pulled up at the Safeway we stopped at, and I snapped a few photos before we hit the road again.

Paulbe, thanks for pointing out the "Thunderbird" engine! I think that makes it a 1956 and not a 1955 model, I'll edit my caption.

Tbirds were around in 1955, too. Not sure if the 312 Cu in engine was available in '55--and the car does look like a '56, now that you mention it!

A fine Wartburg though it appears to have something on the floor under the engine to collect the drips. They were three cylinder two strokes. I doubt that America has ever experienced a two stroke car...except possibly an early Saab?
