    Hey, you had to start somewhere. It's just a shame that the worse ones cost some people so much.
    Cheers.

    This one may be still around; it's had a busy career. Built for Eastern Airlines in 1942, but instead it went to the USAAF as a C-49 s/n 43-2010. Surplused postwar it flew for Northwest as seen here until 1949, then with California Central as seen here in 1953 (William Larkins photo from the Ed Coates collection):

    Then its registration was changed to N148D and it flew with Ozark from '58 to '66 (my uncle was with for Ozark and probably worked on it!). In the '70s it was with Pinehurst Airlines (Ellis Chernoff photo via airliners.net):
    [​IMG]
    Then with Texas Airways and Southwind Airlines; last reported sold in 1995 and the registration cancelled in March 2012.

    ^^^Not the real Marx Brothers; just some locals hired by the theater to promote the movie. You can tell if you look closer:

    ^^^...see? There's the fake Groucho and Chico in the front, and in the back there's Zeppo and Homo and... wait a minute?!? :eek::eek::eek:
    (OK, I'm sure they were just being wise guys and the photographer didn't notice, or else he would have done a retake...)

    Stay tuned for the next thrilling installment...

    I nominate Denise Diplock as our Titular HAMB Queen.
    For those who don't get it...sorry!
    She could have been any of our girlfriend "back in the day".

    Yes, and whoever started this (you know who you are) should be the one to show her how famous she is!

    And those of you that think there is a "common" meaning of the word titular, think again:

    Recognised this as an Aussie photo even before I saw the photo name with Canberra Run.The middle car looks like Lyn Arrowsmiths coupe. He still has the car in virtually unchanged condition although it has been chopped.
    Somebody else may chime in on the roadster and tourer. I am wondering if the tourer maybe was Dick Pross's car.

    Canberra Run 003.jpg

    The 32 roadster was built in Adelaide by Phil Hart ,,in the mid 60s ,,ran a 318, had the chassis Z'ed and maybe an Allard front end ,was bought by the late Steve Simpson and taken back to Sydney ,,all were Romans Hot Rod Association members ,,,not sure but i think the 32 ended in Kevin Monks collection,,,was ahead of its time in OZ,,,

    ^^^Bet this place got a makeover some years afterward, backwards or not. This is part of a triptych of photos taken in the early '20s; the whole building was half a block long (over 30 swastikas!).

    ^^^"Be shure to see Raffles - he can crack anything but a smile."
    Guess he can't crack open a dictionary, either. :rolleyes: Any guesses on the car? Thought it was Mopar but I've never seen a two-door convertible sedan like it before.

    ^^^Caption on this one says the guy is the legendary Barney Oldfield.
    More to come - goodnight all.
