The last picture is from this place.
One of the mine cars is a 1936 CX Ford sedan, just like the one from NZ that I posted a couple of days ago. One of these three photos is from the link to the Car and Driver article (provided by 327Eric) on the mine cars.
If you click on the link to the Car and Driver article, provided by 327Eric, the photographer's 19 photos can be seen, including another one of the Ford CX sedan. (Each photo can be greatly enlarged, showing a lot of detail.)
The mine CX may have been the same green colour as the NZ one.
They are Peugeot, Renault, Hotchkiss, Ford pre WWII and Simca, Citroën, Ford post WWII. And something that looks like a 60's Mercedes. Looks like a hoarder stash rather than a hidding spot.
This one is sitting in a neighbor’s yard. It had a garage over it , but he let the garage rot away until the city made him tear it down. “ I’m going to fix it up one day “ he said.
60 Caddy limo
^^^^Can anyone identify this car??^^^
Seems unlikely there would be any sprayed on urethane insulation in WWII or before.
OK @j hansen , how did you get this 1948 FX Holden in the Euro jungle pics or is it somewhere else ?
Ha Ha, just a random stolen pic from the InterWeb.
Has a Hanomag or Skoda vibe to it. Thing is the whole pile is British cars . Lower left is a single hole Ford 8 grille which is hard to find now compared to the more common Anglia grille just above it.
A better picture ..
Gotta love those Studes! Don’t know if they’re coming or going
Haha, I was just thinking the back window and roof of the Studebaker would be a cool windshield for something. Just not sure what.
WW II bomber maybe?
never saw/ knew about that old style grille!
This is bugging the shit out of me. Anyone figure it out yet?
Circa 1949 German Ford Taunus.
Be sure to wipe.
I do remember seeing one of these in an early '70s Rod & Custom, made into a gasser.
Thank you @Chrisbcritter .
1950-51 Ford Taunus.
I only knew of the model with the multiple grille slots, I should have noticed the hood curve as being Taunus
It was called Buckel-Taunus in Germany because of its rounded back like a hump. not so often to see even in Germany. nice little cars though looking a bit like a miniature from the american brothers
this one is a 39, the first version of this bodystyle.
what is in the junkyard pic seems to be a 1951 de Luxe like this:
You sir, are a life saver! Or at least, a sanity-saver. Just when I thought I'd seen every production car ever made, something new pops up. I've seen a few Taunuses before (Taunii?) but I never saw that particular one before.
Lineville (Clay County) Alabama.
Great... now I want one......
