Clara Bow and Buddy Rogers for Wings, 1927.
Sterling Moss and Denis Jenkinson at the 1955 Mile Milga. Great photo.
afaik Daimler-Benz scrapped the transporter, late fifties/early sixties i suppose, only to feel the need to recreate it within the last decade. i don't think it was sold.
Correct-a-mundo. The Mercedes Renntransporter was built in 1954 for fast transport of cars to and from tracks. Mercedes pulled out of racing in '55 after the LeMans tragedy. The transporter was used by the factory for a few years but was finally scrapped in 1967. Mercedes realized their mistake and built a replica in 1993.
The car that sold this year for $29 mil was a W196 Grand Prix car. One of the few Mercedes Grand Prix cars that the factory let go into private hands.
West-Coats Nash Motors Bragg Blvd. Fayetteville, NC

Glenn Wood (yes of the Woods Brothers fame. Glenn was, I think, the dad) wins with this convertible against the factory backed Ford cars. The race took place in Fayetteville, NC.
Again Glenn wood. Supposedly this was the family sedan.
I think Swi66 is going to break the 4000 page barrier single handedly! Go Swi!
Desoto dealership circa 1942 located at 1711 14th Street NW in Washington DC. The building is still there but can't figure out the name of the dealership o add to the Desoto dealer listing.
1957 Plymouth Fury mini car?
It is not a Powercar Fury JR because they did not make them until 1958 and they looked different. Must be custom made?
A mess of Zingers on the track.
I know it's a long shot but can anyone identify the race track where the Zingers are at?
Australian outback with the dogs loaded in the back of the UTE.

When the ol pedal car just isn't meeting your need for speed any more!
Is this where the term "Elephant motor" came from?
Parallel parking, nailed it!
I remember going to Kennedy Park in Hayward with my father to watch these races. I was soooo bummed when they shut down the track.
Look at all the wrinkles in the seats on pics #3 to 5,people would be screaming if I produced seats like that and they have a tendency to think they are perfect from the factory.
Page 4000. Awesome stuff guy's!
That has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Want one when I was a kid? Hell I still want one!!
Looks like it is made from an auxiliary tank for a Grumman Bearcat.
I wonder where this would be without the way too numerous "Quoted Pictures " ? scrubba
