    Correct on the car. The movie is "Electra Glide in Blue" starring Robert Blake.

    I recognize that. Is is a panoz of some sort? looks a little like an esperante, but they are roadsters.

    either that, or a Morgan aerocoupe.

    No to both suggestions... This is driving me crazy because I am sure I've seen the car recently in a magazine...

    SUCCESS!!!! Found it by pure luck on google image... No wonder it was so hard finding that car!!! It's ULTRA rare and supposedly, there are only 55 cars of that specific model produced...

    It's a Wiesmann GT MF5. German car (BMW engine, same as the one used in the M5 if I understood it properly).

    Cool . I spotted one in a parking lot in Germany a few years ago:

    Speaking of the old Cresta, Matchbox made one of those too, it is kind of primitive as I think it was the first Matchbox casting of a passenger car, introduced in 1956:

    I was always surprised so many prewar cars survived until that times, as later cars seemed to not want to survive for 10 years.

    Yikes, that line of 275GTBs at rear is insane, and the ones in foreground aren't bad either.

    I put my thumb over the wagon section......it was worse looking as a sedan. UGGGH.

    Yes those are Ferrari 275 GTBs in the back row. There are several more in the front row, those are the ones with the "ducktail" spoilers over the flat tail panel. The 275 GTB used many of the styling themes of the 250/330GTO. Most of the other cars in the shot are 330GTCs, perhaps the most practical Ferrari for daily driving of the era.

    There's a single round-tail car in the front row wearing a black removable hardtop. It's a 275 GTS Spider, not to be confused with the 275 GTB NART Spider which was essentially the 275 GTB/4 with the the top removed, only a handful were sold, all in the USA.>

    G'day

    I know it is a Cisitalia and from early post war. Something does not look quite right though.

    Now that will worry me all night.

    Cheers

    I've seen this car at the Russo & Steele auction at Scottsdale AZ, it's a replica of a 1947 Cisitalia 202 MM (Mille Miglia) Coupe Aerodinamica. Like the original it uses the mechanicals of a Fiat 1100.

    G'day

    I am no good at US trucks but is it a Dodge Power Wagon from early 1950's? The cab reminds me of a standard Army cab which seemed to appear on a whole lot of army vehicles.

    I am thinking maybe converted Korean war vintage reused as a fire truck.

    G'day

    First attempt at posting this got lost in transmission, so might see two messages.

    I am guessing early 50's Chevrolet (maybe Belair) convertible. Throught th '50s Australian Holdens looked like Chevy's from a few years before and the line look like a late 50's Holden

    Cheers

    Yes it is a 1953 Dodge Power Wagon. Good guess Graham.
