Period images to relieve some of the stress


Recommended Posts

Look at the difference in traffic in the two videos from 1903 to 1910 in London England. A way of life must have changed drastically as the automobile was replacing the horse in that short period of time.

Probably IS San Diego since it shows the Spirit of St. Louis.

The photo is part of a whole series of photographs taken in 1927 at Ryan Aviation in San Diego, which was located at Dutch Flats, just to the north of the existing Lindbergh Field, San Diego's current airport.  Located at the corner of Barnett and Midway.  That was the original location of the airport where the plane was built and where Lindbergh flew from to St. Louis, on to New York and finally to Paris.  Found lots of pictures of Lindbergh posing that day at that location--lots of people but that Chrysler is the only car I could find.  Lindbergh must have been exhausted by the end of the day (he looks it!)

1936/7 Ford V8 Model 62 manufactured in England fitted with the small 22hp (RAC rating) engine known as the V860 in USA. An almost identical car was sold in France as the Matford, a collaboration  between Mathis and Ford. 

The aircraft is a Vultee V-1AD used in 1936 during an attempt at the first New York -London-New York double crossing flown by Harry Richman and Henry T "Dick" Merrill in the famous "Ping Pong" flight when to ensure buoyancy in case of ditching, empty spaces in the aircraft were  filled with ping pong balls. It was later used by Nationalist Forces in Spain as a transport and high speed bomber.

Ed,

Easiest car in the world to remove the spares from the back of the body:1) raise the lid as shown 2) make sure the bolts and iron securing the spares in place are all free 3) Get in the drivers seat and after starting the car put the gas pedal to the floor ! can also help to perhaps stomp on the brakes after about 40 feet of extreme acceleration !  Spare times will eject in perfect harmony and grace and totally destroy anything that is in their ejected path!

Now there is something that would be great to demonstrate at Pebble Beach! 🤣

The Farman is a fantastic car.......and I have only seen one in person.........so that tells you how crazy rare they are. When looking at the one I have the pleasure to lay hands on it looked like all engine, and no chassis........IE -  it will go, but it wasn't going to stop!

Just for the discussion - I first assumed these were photo's the same car, but the photo on the top has a slightly different tail configuration down at the frame level

This photo shows the tail difference a little more clearly (notice the more "pointed" tail at frame/chassis level)
