1921 Ford with blown radiator. They didn't call them Fix Or Repair Daily for nothing.

News item: Texas to open fastest US highway with 85 mph limit (that would be 136 km/h, for the imperial-units challenged) Goes to prove that everything in Texas must be bigger, better, higher, faster...  ;D

It's 80 in Montana (except in residential areas) and no one goes much less than 90. Big difference between Texas and Montana is trees. Not many in Texas but a big bunch in Montana (at least on the west side. Trees that grow right up to the side of the road...big Douglas firs. Squish a car like a grape. Good population control.

The US equivalent of the Fench plane tree, then.

By the way, seems a good idea to stay out of the woods in France if you drive a UK registered BMW.

Trust me, there was ample room for two couples in the back seat for whatever silliness they wanted to partake in.  ;D

For me, for that, it was a Nash Rambler, with a fully reclining front seat!

My dad had a '55 Nash Rambler - Robin's Egg Blue. It was a real POS and I was always embarassed to have to ride in it, especially when my friends saw me. I'll never know what possessed my dad to get that car but even he found it embarasssing becuase he immediately traded it in for a '56 Pontiac, white on top, Raspberry Red on the bottom.

Thanks for sharing your work, folks!  Walter, that Chrysler you posted looks a lot like the one at the top of the thread (2nd image).  My image was from a 1949 model, being used as a limo in Vancouver.

Chris - love the hot rod!!  Not a lot of people do flames anymore.

Mike.

P.S. Rob, in North America the closest we have to a plane tree is a sycamore.  They get pretty big too, but not the several-foot diameter of Douglas firs.  Back a couple of hundred years ago settlers used to burn out fir trees rather than trying to cut them down.

Here are some flames for you Mikey. Around here they seem to be as popular as ever.

When I was still running both the old Escort and the new Fiesta I'd often thought - wished - to get the old one painted up à l'américain but there was nowhere to go to get it done. (I know my own limitations.) So I sold it...

But why stop at cars?

Hello Mike. A good thread to start. Here's three from a picnic a few years back. The photo with one of our modern cyclists hitching a lift is an early electric delivery vehicle.

"ENFIELD — made like a gun

I wonder how a slogan like that would work these days?  (Elsewhere than the US of A, I suppose)

Yes, the headlight reflection from the Enfield was well seen, and captured!

No works of art, but fun "doodlings" from the last few months.

Like the top one - inventive mood, but what is it? Seems to have the Blue Oval, might say Le Mans, but I've never seen one of those and the lights look Japanese.
