    G'day

    An early Toyota Corona, from about 1965. They were assembled in Port Melbourne (near my office) under the same deal as the Renault 16 mentioned above, being sold here as the Toyota Tiara. I am not sure if they made it to the USA, but obviously somewhere other than RHD countries.

    This is sort of the beginning of the Japanese revolution in Australia. I don't think a massive number were assembled but from the next generation, they were a big hit.

    Cheers

    Well, I'm not sure what it is (beyond 'a Honda'), but it's somewhat gratifying to know that the US isn't the only place where people don't know how to park.

    Honda FRV - and judging by the reflection of the palm trees in the headlights it isn't in Guernsey, the only one of the British Isles to use all numeric number plates - so I guess this is somewhere Caribbean, or a Pacific Isle ?

    That Triumph 2.5PI was a Mark 2 sold 1969-74, they had a face lift in late 69 together with the 2000 to give that new grille.
    The Mark 1 from 68-69 was different with as it had the same front as the early Triumph 2000 from the mid 60's.

    My stupid Flckr site no longer allows me to post my photos directly - all you can do is access the page itself using the little blue box there - sorry...

    Any of you recommend a simple site (preferably free) where I could post my pictures and then copy them across to here?

    I usually use tinypic and paste the "Direct Link for Layouts" in a post using the IMG button. And I usually go back and edit and stick height=400 width=600" at the end of the code to get it to fit the page.

    I think the reason you're getting nowhere with Flickr is because their URLs use and @ sign in them and we mask @ signs here to foil spambots.

    Ah, if you use the" Grab the HTML/BBC code" button at Flickr and then just grab the code following the img scr= stuff, you can paste that in here, block it all and then click the IMG button. Or click IMG, paste the code, then click IMG again.

    The code is the farm9/staticflickr stuff.

    Good call.. Yes it is a 2010 Honda FR-V with the 2.2ltr diesel. This was taken in Bermuda at the dockyards. From the size I would say it is right between the Fit and the Ody. The new 2014 Fit Shuttle that is due in the US is suppose to be based off of the outgoing FR-V from Europe. I think I may have spotted a tester the other day of it (had all the gear covering it like you see in the "Spy Shots") but I couldn't get my camera out fast enough to get a picture.

    This should be easy. I can say I've seen alot of things buried in flower beds before as decoratons, but this tops them all.

    That's almost as sad as seeing old canoes being used as flower boxes. :sick:

    The car was probably massively rear-ended.

    1965 Ford Mustang ( WTF?)

  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,963
    Yep, a Toyota Tiara. One of about 300 sold in the huge US market, and maybe the best survivor, if not the sole roadworthy survivor. I suspect these things rust at the mere rumor of rain. It was just "discovered" near Portland OR, although has obviously been enthusiast maintained. The replacement Corona would be 100x as successful in NA too, and the rest is history.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,963
    Yeah, you should be able to right click and get the URL. I use photobucket, which has recently undergone a terrible "upgrade" that seems to have ignored any usability studies, but at least it allows easy direct linking.

    Weird image, but 61 Ford convertible
  • uplanderguyuplanderguy Kent, OHPosts: 7,494
    Although I prefer the Starliner hardtop, the '61 is my absolute favorite Ford of the sixties!

    I like that blue too. I hate Ford's tomato reds of that period.

    I'd have to have one with the correct full wheel covers, but love those cars.

    One thing about Fords of that era I thought was a little goofy for a Big Three car, was how the steering column was actually two columns--a smaller one for steering and an exposed one for the shifter. Wouldn't keep me from really enjoying one though.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,963
    A Galaxie Sunliner, then. Dog dish caps and wide whites, I don't know.

    Call me crazy, but I prefer the 1960. Both 60 and 61 are excellent examples of the transition between 50s glitz and 60s modernism, kind of stuck in metamorphosis.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,963
    Back in the 90s, my dad had a red and white on red and white 60 Country Sedan (try to find one of those today), I remember the two columns. Cool car, so wide and long, but via that it rode nicely.
  • magnettemagnette London UKPosts: 1,948
    Thanks for this - I don't pretend to understand code, but does that mean I literally go along and delete all the code before farm9/etc... or do I also have to delete all the @ signs?

    Oh - and by the way - anybody know the car?
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,686
    Yup[, that's a '61 Ford Sunliner.

    yes it is 1/2 of a '65. This is located at CJ Pony Parts east of Harrisburg on Rt.22. It is only the front half not the entire vehicle. My girls (pictured) wanted to hide a geocaching container on it somewhere, but I said no.

    I'll go with the 63. I believe they were all on the same chassis through 64.

    The code you want to grab/copy in your example is:

    http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8033/8067741157_3d4093d59a.jpg

    So you'd delete anything else.

    Then you'd bracket that with the IMG code that you can get by hitting the IMG button (hit it once to open the IMG code, paste the jpg photo link, then hit the IMG button again to close the code). The code goes between the "s.

    Someone can probably explain it better. Or shoot me an email the next time you're having trouble (stever@edmunds.com). And you'll have to handtype that email address since the @ won't copy and paste right. :blush:

    Alfa Romeo Berlina 2000?
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,686
    Definitely not a 2000, it's a 1971 Alfa-Romeo Giulia Super aka type 105, most Supers had 1300cc motors, some had 1600 and there was a 1760cc Perkins diesel starting in 1976. Then there were the endless variants including TI, and Nuova Super versions.

    The tipo 105 was popular with the Carabinieri and as a taxicab during it's long production run lasting from '62 to '78.
