Since we seem to be on a roll with the VW Bugs lately, here are two more. Another "diptych" set, one from my perspective and one from my son's.

Nikon FM2n, Nikkor-S Auto 55mm f/1.2, ORWO N74+, developed in LegacyPro L110 at 1:31 for 6.5 minutes.

If you like the looks of this Triumph Mayflower then do a search for pictures of the four door bigger version called the Triumph Renown; with luck you'll find a picture of the longer version designed as a limo; they are as rare as hen's teeth.

Beautiful Mustang, Mike! Is the "66" on the front plate indicative of the year?

Since we've moved to Mustangs, another father/son diptych! I think this one's a 1965...

Hello, Dourbalistar, and thank you. I don’t know if it’s a ‘66 Mustang, a coincidence, or the 66th Mustang registered in Yokohama that year, but I suspect you’re right and it’s a ‘66. I’ve noticed that you’re quite observant to the small details in photographs like that. As for me, I was just sitting on a curb on the side of the road waiting for something of interest to come along and luckily within a few minutes of sitting down that Mustang happened along; it was an easy shot to take.

All the best,
Mike

Haha, thanks! Small details are what make a great photo, right? For me, half the fun in shooting these old cars is trying to pin down the exact model year, rather than just saying "vintage Mustang". When I do my research, I try to look for small clues.

That said, if you Google around enough, you can find sites like this that tell you exactly how to differentiate. So based on the front grill, it looks like yours is indeed a '66. And thanks to my son's photo that included the gas cap, I think ours is a '65. I guess the license plate holder has a clue, too.

Spot on - that's very impressive Dourbalister! It is, by far, my favourite radiator grille ever.

Dear Board,

While running errands I saw this beauty in the parking lot of the local Ace Hardware store.

I saw rumors recently that the Toyota Land Cruiser might be leaving the U.S. market. I spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Chad, Africa, and Land Cruisers were among the most indestructible vehicles around despite brutal desert conditions. Lots of vintage models still taking a beating on terrible "roads" after many years of hard driving. There's even a conflict that takes its name from the Land Cruisers that were used, the so-called Toyota War between Chad and Libya.

Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 (1988-1990).

Saw this just after it was posted and thought it was the V8 wotsit. Spent a couple of sleepless nights until remembering Dolomite and then thought that's another old name recycled and spent more sleepless nights trying to remember Vitesse was also recyled from the 30's (a variant of the Gloria). Please don't do it again I need my beauty sleep...

My FJ60, Bonneville Salt Flats for Speed Week earlier this month. I'd never trade this for a new one, or any other new SUV for that matter. Amazingly capable vehicle. But, yes, they're slow

I probably phrased that poorly. It's slow, everyday use, but I wasn't running it out there, just spectating. Though I am sure there is a class for unmodified FJ60s vainly trying for a 3 digit time through the speed traps.

Thanks, it hit me hard because I was the editor of one of the Triumph club's magazine. It was a long time ago and these days the brain fade is creeping up on me.

I know it well too. Only two days ago I confused a W108 Benz with a W114. These things hurt!

Yikes, I hope I correctly identified the W108 in Post #1408!

If anybody knows better, I'd happily be corrected!

Bad news Dourbalister - that's a W111.

Not bad news, I'm happy to be corrected! I updated the identification in the post. After some further research, I realize that I missed a key feature: W108s were only available in 4-door models, and this is clearly a coupé.

Maybe I got the fintail in Post #1617 correct? I actually took note of the model, a 230, so hopefully that's not a second strike.

That is indeed a W110, also known as a Heckflosse, from the pointy rear wings.
