    Modified Camaros by Trans Am Depot. I read about them last week on another forum. They also have a GT9 "Goat" concept.

    G'day

    I think the one at the front is an NSU Prinz and van is probably a Renault. Any ideas on the middle one? I preeume that is is somewhere in Holland from the canal side location and houses

    Cheers

    Looks like something from Ford or Opel with that American-style windshield. The nose is straight off a Ford Anglia but it could be a Taunus.

    The front car is anNSU Prinz 4 and the van is indeed a Renault - I have no idea what model as that shape cab was in use from the late 40's to about 1965, but I'll give you a clue on the middle car - it is German but neither a Ford or an Opel.
    And yes, the picture is another Dutch one from about 1965/6, apparently.

    This is a postcard from Haverfordwest, in west Wales and was taken in about 1960.

    I'll be there. Anyone else going to the NY Auto Show next week? The 113th.

    Tiny. I spot an Isetta under "Haverfordwest".

    G'day

    You are not making them easy!

    Just spent an idle hour (when I should have been doing something else) running through possibles. Excluded NSU. Opel, Audi, VW, Ford and several others when I strayed on to BMW ancestors. BMW acquired Glas in the mid 1960s and rebadged a large Glas as a BMW 3000. Glas had previously made other models for much cheaper markets including the Goggomobil. This is the big Goggomobil branded as the Glas T600. The station wagon was decribed as a Kombi.

    Cheers

    This was taken while out Geocaching (a worldwide GPS based treasure hunting game). The geocache was hidden inside and involved a long hike out into the woods to find it. Good luck on this (sorry Fin, I know this is a painful picture)

    Probably been out there longer than I've been alive. Rear quarter is a good hint, I will say 52-53 Ford.

    Holy crap... you nailed it with the '53 Ford.

    These cars are very addictive, really. The car is a big Goggomobil but I think it was also marketed as an Isar in some markets so this is would be a Glas / Isar T600 Kombi.
  • magnettemagnette London UKPosts: 1,884
    Yes, sorry, it is a bit small. The Isetta is the most unusual car there, and the only foreign one, as far as I can see, everything else is British. Nowadays you would probably not find a street anywhere in Britain where the cars were all British....
  • fintailfintail Posts: 32,940
    Same in NA - you'd maybe see a Beetle or British sports car on the road in some parts then, otherwise, all American makes.

    There's some easy stuff in the pic, an Austin and a few Fords. I think I might see a Hillman Minx parked on the right kind of middle, facing uphill.
