    In the days before OSHA. How long do you think a painter would last when the only protection he had was a rag under his nose to breath through.

    No biggie Ron, I had to look twice. I love the car, it's been in every magazine I pick up lately. The trick pic was done very well.

    Would someone tell me how I'm reading this post when I only am on page 4434. I have read posts previously that referred to postings that were on pages further ahead of where I was and often wondered.
    Thanks
    Jay

    Here in the Netherlands CD on a plate stands for Corps Diplomatique.

    For a moment I thought it was the car in which our late Prins Bernhard had a big accident. But his plate would have started with AA (this combination is for the Royal family)

    And the shape of the doors and doorwindows is not the same...

    I thought of a diplomatic plate, but they are normally stand alone, with the car having a separate normal number plate. A friend of mine has an an old ex embassy car with it's CD plate still fitted.

    That one above is really bent. Ouch! I googled it, there are a few other pics out there.

    I wonder if the squared off windows indicate a convertible sedan rather than a cabriolet?? More googling called for!

    Ahh The Good Ol Days - Basic Training for a Firefighter was "Put the wet stuff on the red stuff" - Those rubber rain coats would melt if you got too close

    Hey swi66, that red car looks exactly like the '66 MG1100 that I just sold a few months ago!

    That Stouffer scale brings back lots of memories of days spent in the darkroom. I'm not sure you can even buy process film any more, everything is digital and looks like crap anymore.....if you've been printing for the last 35 years anyway.[​IMG]
