  • Yes, true, but the M cars are rather low buck collectibles given how old they are and how much they cost to bring back to life--- and they've remained totally stagnant in value for quite some time. You can get more for a 1980s era Camaro Z-28 than you can for a M car.

    The problem is that they look like regular BMWs and they really aren't that fast anymore.

    But yes, some people do collect one or two--the reason values are stagnant is because everyone who wants one, now has one--so they just change hands at the same price because there is no strong buyer pressure to escalate. It's like "oh, you want X dollars for your M5...well call me if you'll take less".

    So...collectible? Yeah. Hot collectible? No. Future collectible? Maybe not.

    maybe if you took that DeLorean back and told some of the companies what to do then the 80's cars would be collectable. :D

    I wonder what the white wagon is beside the 64 Galaxie - I was thinking Datsun 510, but that's not it. Maybe a Rootes group car?

    Small car driving is a Datsun Bluebird, I think.

    That white wagon has me stumped too. But the next 4 are all Ford; a '64 Galaxy, about a '66 Falcon, a TBird ('66 also I think) and a '57. Beyond that is a 2nd gen Corvair.

    2009 BMW 335i, 2003 Corvette cnv, 2001 Jaguar XK cnv, 1985 MB 380SE (the best of the lot)

    I think the white wagon is a Datsun but the taillights are wrong for a 510, perhaps a late 60s Bluebird.

    What is that big dark red/maroon car way over to the left side of the picture?
    Looks like a big 70's Impala to me.

    G'day

    Looks like a Datsun wagon but lights are not quite right. I wonder if it was local production under license or some sort of knock-off (popular in China and Taiwan)

    Cheers

    My first guess was '75 Caprice Classic, but that's too new for the pic.

    My best guess (and that's all it is) would be a '63-64 full-size Buick, probably an Electra 225.

    Interesting, the photo shows the location of a U.S. Navy NCO Club in Taipei, Taiwan.
  • lostwrench1lostwrench1 Ct.Posts: 435
    Hmmm. The BB Club sign is in Korean and English. I would say the photo was taken in Korea.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,403
    Needless to say, I don't know Chinese from Korean or Swahili but someone is pretty sure that the photo is of Taiwan.

    Well, at least I feel better about not recognizing that white station wagon on the right; it was probably never sold here in the US of A.

    Yes, the photo was taken in Taiwan.
    The photo was taken in 1970.

    G'day

    After a lot of trawling the net, there is apparently a Taiwan version of many Datsuns, made by Yulon or Yue Loong. The names for the cars were as cheesy as the Japanese versions. Given that I found a head cover image with the name on it, I suspect that there might have been an engine plant as well as body assembly.

    However, I have not found an image of this station wagon

    Cheers

    My first thought was that was the new Lincoln grill. Not a Ford logo though.

    Looks like a Renault Murano. A little too much like a Murano, in fact.

    Is that a Nissan rebadge?
  • robr2robr2 BostonPosts: 7,611
    Renault CUV based on Juke underpinnings.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Looks better and more practical than the Juke, though still a little wild.

    I like the two-tone, inside and out.
