Oldkarlend 2018. Spring. Part 1
The current Aldkarland was somewhat empty from the point of view of cars (but not viewers). Although, perhaps, I have not successfully drove. For he fell on the May holidays, and on May 1, many spend in nature with kebabs and vodka. But interesting as it always was, because time wasted for good reason. I'll start with American cars.
The year 1939 was remembered by the extremely interesting headlights of a complex form that many American manufacturers indulged in. It would seem a little bit, one step, and here they are flat rectangular headlights! Moreover, the designers have already painted concepts with such headlights. But, something went wrong.
The 1939 DeSoto itself was a typical middle-class Chrysler car. Nothing fancy but beautiful. Under the hood, row six 93 or 100 hp "Oven", radio, a mirror for women in the sun visor, etc. for extra charge.
The Ford Galaxy Skyliner (or Fairlane 500 Skyliner) of 1959 with a freaky steel roof that retracts into the trunk of an electro-hydraulic system. To place the load in such a trunk must be carefully neatly.Since the label on the rear wing is torn off, the model could not be determined exactly. I forgot to take a picture of him in front. At first, too many people pushed, then shook.
1957 Chevrolet PickUp. Slightly hot-wired
The last Pontiac with silver streams on the hood and wings on the back. In the 30s it was a shyk, in the 50s an already outdated design solution. Young buyers even came up with a contempt for the name of the stripes on the hood - "old braces". The following year they were removed.
I suspect that this is the nameless model 870. But given that the difference is mainly in nameplates, then there could be anything.
The state of the barn, where the car stood for 40 years. But on the go. For an old car, the unit was very powerful - 227 hp, which was removed from the 5.2 liter V8. For those years, not bad. But not good.
Alpha and Omega of all Americanists, fans of aerostile 50s. This is the Cadillac 62 (1959). From the "coupe de ville" is not easy to distinguish. I give pictures from the prospectus to realize the magnitude of the problem.
The body was located on an interesting light frame, similar to the letter "X". For an additional fee you could get air suspension. But she was quickly abandoned.
Oldsmobile 88 (1971)
And a funny Dodge Chalenger with a face that is not beautiful for my taste.Produced with some changes in the years 1972-74. The difference is not great. Judge for yourself.
And the year 1974.
