Unusual to see lighter paint color on the front of the 55
Ft. Amsterdam is in St. Maarten, this looks like Willemstad in Curaçao. This picture looks like it is by the swinging bridge from the Otrabanda side looking at Punda. I've been there several times, and if I could I would retire there.
Man, if I didn't help dad doing this a few times, don't forget the rubber bungee....
I really don't know where it is .. I just quoted what it said under the picture in the magazine, in which I'm finding out that that's not always correct...but anyway thanks for the correction El Caballo.......

The green bus means this was around 1957. Eventually all of the yellow/white/green buses would all be repainted the two-tone green scheme of the second bus as the MTA took over the transit operations.
Circus elephants used to clear wreckage after bombing in Hamburg Germany.
Bob Bernardon's '39 Chevy Cpe "Jolly Dolly" from Prince Georges' County, MD vs. Dave Hales' '38 Willys Cpe running out of S&S Parts Co., Alexandria, VA, at Pocono Drag Lodge, Bear Creek, (Wilkes-Barre) PA. The track is still there, but no longer in operation. Sadly, Bob Bernardon is no longer with us. Thankfully, Dave Hales is still with us here on the HAMB.
It isn't always fun and games in these cars, considering what happened to people in crashes when these cars were new, it makes you wonder about how sound they are after 60 years.
Hemi headed Chevy?
The injuries were horrific, to the non-seat belted passengers and to the chest area of drivers from the Steering Wheels. When you see a car that was NOT designed to collapse, collapsed, you know the force was incredible
Thanks. I'll pass these on.
I have seen the top photo before, and I just doesn't look right. You get the impression that the bike hit the 55 head on, but the body would have went flying, and the bike is too far from the 55 to make since of it all. Im thinking it was a staged training film...
^^^Unless the Chevy was headed away from the camera, hit the bike (which was coming toward the camera), and spun about 125 degrees to where it sits? That might explain the bike being in the foreground with the body of the rider between them.
Went to the source and got a bit clearer image:
