    This appears to be a scene from the pilot episode of Jack Webb's television series "Adam-12".

    241 cu in Dodge Red Ram hemi? The 331-392's would have been too many cubes and especially too heavy for the car.

    Bob Hirohata and the "Most famous Merc Custom in the World", built by the Barris Brothers.

    Hirohata was later a victim of an unsolved execution-style murder.

  16. Not the same type of airplane. Still say it's a Ford Tri-motor.... Ford Tri-motor.jpg

  17. The car might be a Mercedes - seriously expensive at the time.

  18. Off topic reply but the photo reminded me of something. In your steam loco photo, the train looks to be a heavily loaded freight so probably not going as fast as the car might be. As a contrast we were driving across France a couple of years ago in a little (French-built) Toyota rental - cruising at 130 kph (about 80 mph) and a passenger train passed us as if we were standing still. It appeared and was gone again in just a few seconds. I know the Eurostar that we went from London to Paris on was doing 285 kph (175+mph) most of the way.

    Lots of interesting stuff re old locos. Good to see the Big Boy steaming again.

    Polished and flashy, but if you want a thrill, ride in the cab of a Baldwin 4-8-8-4.
