    The car actually had its origins in France in the late 1940s, where aircraft designer Gabriel Voisin had designed a minimal car called the Biscooter. The playful name implied that it was about the size of two motorscooters, or a scooter with four wheels. The design drew no interest from either manufacturers or consumers there, however, and he eventually licensed it to Spanish firm Autonacional S.A. of Barcelona. By the time it was introduced in 1953, the marque had been hispanicized to Biscúter. The first car had no formal model name and was called simply the Series 100, but it soon became known as the Zapatilla, or little shoe (clog), after a low-heeled peasant slipper

    A woman with a Topolino. Most likely, it's the little Fiat's German version, the NSU-Fiat 500, assembled at Heilbronn. The black licence plates of Allied-occupied Germany suggest, that the photo was taken in the late 1940s or early 50s

    A middle-aged woman in pants next to a 1937 Chevrolet. Wearing pants – or slacks – rather than a skirt was regarded as very progressive for women in the 1940s.

    I'm wondering if the fin treatment isn't that lovely chrome tape that was big back then.

    used to work in a tin shop just off Roxbury - would be shearing steel and look out the roll up door and see hookers plying their age old trade... they did their job, I did mine! :D

    Love this post abut didn't want to make it longer. I was catching up on the last few days and noticed the posts on Linda Vaughn. Duece Daddy Don asked about how Linda was doing. I saw her last Saturday at Woodward Dream Cruise. She was signing autographs and signed the glove box on my SC/Rambler. Didn't ask her but she looked good and was in good spirits. Tough to do at Dream Cruise.

  28. Here's some interesting one's, of an ad being filmed for B/A, plus a few others as well. It always seems like there are an awful lot of people at these ad shoots doing nothing. :rolleyes: The last picture was the private residence of the Eaton family.
