All ready for a band tour, after a restoration... An MCI Courier 96, I believe a 1950's example...

A 1970 Toyota Corolla station wagon... And a really nice example of one

An interesting truck I spotted this week with France license plates on it, called a Scam SMT35 4x4, apparently a Fiat truck modified by Scam for more rugged use... https://www.scamtrucks.it/en

Fiat X1/9 in a back alley, pretty rough shape and I think it's an early one...

An Isetta 300, a true British 3-wheel model (unlike the 4-wheel version seen most often over here), this one belongs to a collector who moved here from England in the 1970's and brought it with him... I've met him before

409 WHAT?

NOT in a Ford, at least Factory.

406, maybe, 390 probably, could be any FE series, 332, 353, 360, 390, 406, 427, 428....

Don't see many 406's, for some reason.

I don't know what's under the hood of that Ford, but I'd guess something rather serious... And the car is a clone, not original but a very nice build...

And no one asked any questions about the Dodge? <<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/grin.gif

Old Power Wagon Dodge.
Probably a clapped-out 318.

Early 60's.

Rough riding things, but fairly sure-footed when the going gets tough.
Real good for geting across Canad,eh? on the main highways.

Looks like a snow-pough attachment on the nose.

James,

In your defense - I entered a local hillclimb with
my '79 Fiesta.I got the job of driving the tow truck to
the event.Same era Dodge.I didn't want the job.
After driving it there (about 25 miles),I decided that
this was a cool vehicle.
Turns out that I ended up totaling the Fiesta,but was
able to get it home (for free)with the tow truck.AAA paid
off the car (I DID tell them how it was totalled).Every-
thing worked out well.
