    Lemko's 1958 Oldsmobile post was correct I take it?

    Funny how so many '58 and '59 model cars wind up in here.

    I've never examined one of these record players up close but that's an interesting question regarding size. Maybe the photo distorts it.

    I'm also not sure myself of the year and make of the car, except that it certainly is a Chrysler product of that era.

    Well I was way off on the Olds, but I'm pretty sure that is a DeSoto dashboard.

    "This is from a 1958 Oldsmobile with the transportable transistor radio. "

    Right you are lemko! I believe the radio even said 'Trans - Portable' on it.
  • texasestexases Posts: 8,186
    I guess Pontiac had the 'Trans - AM' version... :P
  • wgraferwgrafer Posts: 592
    Looks like a '56 DeSoto to me. If it was a '55 it would have had the short gear selector coming out of the dash (kind of like on later Corvairs), but the '56 was the first year for push-buttom transmission off in the left corner.

    And thanks for the pic-posting help!!!

    Yup, it's a Ferrari 250GT Spider California

    Ferrari spells Spider with an "i". ;)

    Late 70s Subaru DL, rarely seen as shown with whitewall tires.

  • texasestexases Posts: 8,186
    It is a Subaru, but 10 years older...1966 Model 1000. The DL had the big bumpers, and a bit different styling.
  • lostwrench1lostwrench1 Ct.Posts: 982
    The use of Spyder was probably from my long time liking of the Chevy Corvair.

    And for anyone interested............
    The record in #37194 was one of a pack of six which one received from Chrysler when purchasing the record player option. (Chrysler's choice of music). It was 7 inches in diameter and had 16 2/3 rpm.

    i make it an early '70s Suburban. Unusual design; had one door on the driver's side and two on the passengers' side.

    is it a Simca?

  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 19,320
    Good guess, but no, not a Simca.

    Close enough for govt. work. It's a Sunbeam Imp.

    The Rootes Group were the masters of badge-engineering, practically everything they made came out with multiple brands on them.

    The hilariously named Chevy Lumina "Euro", no doubt with a 3.1. My brother had a 1993 model, white with the red and black stripe. Transmission puked around 100K IIRC, but he seemed to like it otherwise. Becoming a rare sight nowadays.

    Colorado fire destruction - a few unusual/rare cars in this shot, or sadly, the remnants of them.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 19,320
    That's right, it's a '92 Chevrolet Lumina Euro. That one was actually photographed in Europe (Finland). Note the Citroen (Picasso?) minivan behind it.

    Oh yeah, just adding to the irony. Reminds me of a friend of mine who thinks it would be funny to drive a Celebrity "Eurosport" on the Autobahn.

    Grand Picasso in the background, I think.

    There was a person on the local news who said his '74 Corvette burned.

    I'm getting smoke from that fire at my house .. I'm only about 35 miles away according to Google Maps.
