The Worlds Largest Classic Car & History Collection
« on: September 14, 2019, 19:29:46 »
The world's largest collection of images and the history of cars from 1930 to 1979
Based on original brochures, advertisements & magazines.

If you like to check out some of the cars you owned over the years then this is the site you need. One of our Members (Brian S.) posted it on Facebook where I came across it. Brian asked a very interesting question "In what car did you learn how to drive?"

Anyway, I thought it would be a great "LINK" to post here for our Members ...

So here it is --->

(When the link opens, click on Enter [top right hand] and explore by YEAR, MAKE or COUNTRY). Enjoy!

Thank you, Brian, for a Great Link!


PS. When you look for the Year 1969, Mercedes Benz and 280 SL you find the car to be Front and Center in the Photograph :) no worries you might find something similar for your beloved 230 SL & 250 SL

I learnt to drive on a 1972 Ford one ton dually with a stake box - serious bumper out front with a huge winch.  It was built for the Yukon Forestry Srvice and was surplus so my dad bought it at an auction with 50 miles on it.  It had a shifter that was 3' tall and felt like it was connected to a rubber band.  Hitting a washboard surface at 50 mph usually saw the rear end kick out and you would have to jam on the brakes and hope you stayed on the road.   

Great truck.
