    The weird Porsche-looking car I posted before (here it is again) is a 1952 Glockler-Porsche>

    This was the creation of a German VW dealer who was one of the first to race Porsches. Unlike the later Porsche 550 which it resembles, the Glocker cars used the standard rea-engine placement.

    Cheers

    Those look like Audi wheels on the Corrado.. They should have just named it the Scirocco..

    Yep, that's an early ('92) Volkswagen Corrado. This particular car has been customized with an Audi, TT Turbo drivetrain, hence the Audi wheels. That looks like the VR6 body, introduced in 1992.

    I'll go with its being a 68. I love those turn signal indicators.

    Sure looks like it but the still is from Cloud Atlas and I don't see side marker lights on the 'Stang, so perhaps it's a '67.

    Here's Bullitt's 390 GT, notice the prominent marker panel at rear>

    Stupid helpers aren't working again, Why can't I _ italicize_ Cloud Atlas?

    Doh. I guess that makes sense, as the Buick turning the corner looks like a 69-70 Electra, maybe. And a same years Coupe deVille parked. Chevy truck maybe a 59 or so.

    My wife really liked that movie but she doesn't recall a Mustang being in it. :D I missed the movie but enjoyed the book a lot. (And a space was left after the s in Atlas before the underscore, so the coding failed. And there's a space before the C in the example I didn't edit).

    In 1967, Sweden finally moved to driving on the right instead of the left (cars were LHD, weirdly). Here's a before and after shot:

    lots of Volvos, and an oddly out of place 1960ish Buick

    Where's the Buick? I see a Dodge Lancer in the first pic, a '66 Valiant in the second, and a Checker in the third, among the imports.

    In the second picture, follow the dotted line to just past the Volvo. I wasn't sure if it was a Buick or a Cadillac.

    There's a Triumph TR-4 on the left next to the truck and over to the middle near the front, what appears to be a Checker Marathon , probably a taxi

    Well a new drivetrain on a Corrado was a good move--not financially but in terms of actually getting driving time to exceed shop time.

    I got everything backwards, the TR is on the right, the Checker, left/middle.

    Apparently Mopars were big in Sweden back in the day, might explain their taste for old American iron today. The Checker is an unexpected sight too.

    There's a fintail taxi in front of the Checker.
