  1. Hello All- This is a picture taken in Neiva, Huila a city in Colombia. Colombia is famous for its "chivas" colorful truck conversions that carried passengers and cargo. This is probably a proto or ur-chiva. What year and type of Ford do you think this is based on?
  2. Just as some trivia- Pablo Escobar, notorious drug lord, also owned a 1928 Cadillac, in homage to Al Capone.
  3. Thank you nzcanerd- you also answered my question last time- you are amazing.
  4. Hello- This is my second time posting- but with a similar question. These pictures were taken in Colombia- probably in the 1940s, and the car is my great-grandfather's. He almost certainly sold this one to buy a Packard Clipper "Super". Can anyone identify this car?
  5. Yeah- I think it a CJ-6. See the fourth sentence below. Looks like a longer wheelbase. The CJ-6 was a stretched version of the CJ-5 with a 20 in (508 mm) longer-wheelbase (101 in, 1955-1971 / 103.5 in, 1972–1981).[70] The extended chassis allowed a variety of configurations, including adding a second row of seats. Introduced in 1953 as the M170 military version, the civilian CJ-6 made its debut in 1955 as a 1956 model. Never very popular in the United States, most CJ-6 models were sold to Sweden and South America. It was also assembled in South Africa, by Volkswagen's local subsidiary.[71] The U.S. Forest Service put a number of CJ-6 Jeeps into use. American sales ended after 1975, with the introduction of the CJ-7. Just 50,172 had been made when the series went out of production completely in 1981.[40] Just as in the CJ-5, the V6 and V8 engine choices appeared in 1965 and 1972.
  6. Hello All- This is a picture of my father (picture left) and uncle (picture right) and a friend of theirs. This was taken in the early 1960's. They are out hunting and a couple of shotguns are up against the side of the jeep-like vehicle. Can anyone identify the vehicle? Ernesto Blanco
  7. My wife's grandparents, Bogota plates, probably in the 50s?
  8. Thank you Bloo, this website is a wonderful resource.
  9. This was taken in Bogota Colombia, my grandfather is making the moves on my grandmother, the young woman on the left. Any ideas on the car?
  10. Another point, I think the front wheels are smaller than normal, giving the illusion of higher front fenders. Also the wind screen is a two piece unit, looks like the standard was a flat one piece. Does anybody know the advantage of the rear placement of the radiator in these Renault cars?
  11. Thank you both for your help, yes I agree with nzcarnerd, http://voitures.renault.free.fr/?img=4475 I also confirmed that the picture was taken in Sevilla, Spain. And, I also agree, there have been modifications to both the fenders and the lights, I wonder if these cars were finished to the customers specifications. Those wheels are interesting, the hubs are exposed but there are no lug nuts, I tried to find true disc type wheels and they all had the central lugs.
  12. This picture was taken either in Colombia or Spain, probably before WW-II, my wife's relative was the Colombian ambassador to Nazi Germany.
  13. This is a picture from my wife's family album, this maybe in Colombia or Spain, probably pre-WWII.
