just would like to say thanks again to all that has posted such great pics of the past.
Still there and remarkably unchanged, now Porsche of Beverly Hills. Building was originally built and used as horse stables.
^^^ Douglas C-54, the Military version of the DC-4. This one appears to be a VC-54, VIP transport. One of these became the first "Air Force One".
There is quite a few C-47s in the background (Military DC-3's).
I cant identify the 4 Star General, getting into the '46 Buick can anyone else?
Wow! The posts on this thread have almost stopped! Big Bummer!
Some Aussie cars....
....I hope this isn't the same car!!
It's a real shame what has happened to Vintage Shots ? The photos , all of them even the ones non automotive where something a lot of folks looked forward to seeing every day! I hope you consider reverting back to the old format soon.
My 38 coupe in blue long before I bought it.
.........And last, another Aussie creation. The Commonwealth Aircraft Corp. (CAC) CA-4 Woomera medium/dive bomber prototype. Designed by Sir Lawrence Wackett only two were ever built as the roll was filled by the DAP (Department of Aircraft Production) built Beaufighters.
This is the second aircraft with a re-designed tail, this was designated the CA-11.
Both of them had a unique defence system for the time, there were two remote controlled turrets one each in the rear of the engine nacelles. Each turret housed two .303cal machine guns and were controlled by the crew member in the rear seat of the cockpit.
Forward protection consisted of four .303cal guns fixed in the nose of the fuselage.
So ya went and did it didja!
Might be Omar Bradley. Not sure. I think he had 4 stars by the end of WWII.
