    i remember those. They cut the price so much that they used stick-on decals to label the instrument panel !

    Yup, it's 1963 AMC Rambler American.

    G'day

    My recollection is that it was actually an almost experimental ground effect vehicle using the M1 engine for Group C racing. I cannot recall the detail but there is something scratching at my memory

    Cheers

    Toyota MR2 from early '90s. There is one (also in red) up the street from me, right now. It looks like a little Ferrari 348

    Cheers

    G'day

    Found a photo of it racing

    http://alex62.typepad.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/2007/04/29/ho- bbs81c.jpg

    I remain doubtful about the front end. Seems implausible in a ground effect car

    Cheers

    Exactly, it's a '92. I know a couple of guys who have 'em and they really love them.

    Both cars are postwar even if one doesn't look it.

    The American actually got a hardtop version before the Classic and Ambassador did!

    As a kid, I used to laugh at how Rambler speedometers went "1,2,3,4,5,6," etc. instead of "10, 20, 30", etc.

    1949 - 53 Ford Prefect E493A - not a British market version as we had semaphore trafficators.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,970
    Yup, the caption indicates that it's a 1949 Ford Prefect. The Plymouth is a 1946 Special Deluxe.

    Which was once mistaken to be the dominant life form.

    I shouldn't have laughed too loud I guess, as '63 and later Studebakers, my favorites, only wrote out "20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120", and "140" and "160" in "Super" models...they even skipped the 'odd' tens!
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 47,556
    well at least they were optimists .

    The Bonneville R3 Avanti that set the U.S.A.C. land speed records would be the only one that needed the 160 speedo. The R2 Hawk went 140 at Bonneville and an R2 Lark, 132.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 47,556
    Well I sure wouldn't drive one that fast...or any stock 60s car for that matter.

    Wheels are non-stock Panasports or Minilites.

    The pretty Fiat 124 Coupe. This one looks a little sad with panels not very straight

    Cheers

    Fiat 124 Coupe

    Yup that is a Gen 2 (1969-73) Fiat 124 Sport Coupe 1600. It lacks bumpers because it's been modified for Autocross racing.

    Styling was by Boano.

    Good find.
    That looks like a wide body version of the same car.
    My daughter told me the cars were there for some VIP drives around the track.

    I'd like to have a Fiat 124 coupe. Pretty hard to find them anymore---most have been turned into Ferrous Oxide mines.

    There are several lovely Italian Coupes of that era. I think they look better without bumpers, although impractical.
