Very distinctive 36-39 grille, if its not a Ford, Ill hazard a guess, a 37-38 Nash...Lafayette maybe? Its an American allright.

Default Re: Nostalgic pictures of our family's cars

Not sure if this is the correct thread to post these pictures. Excuse me.

These pictures were scanned and sent to me by a friend. This is from an album of an Italian couple travelling through Eurpope in 1932 in their then new car.

Nice pictures, please give some info about the source, connection,what is the story?
The car is a Ford A Roadster, registered in Germany. Even at that time the "D" plate was in use to identify the country. Today that is icluded in the number plate. This car has a number of accessories.
On the other vehicles one can see Swiss plates, the countryside would also point to that. There is a high bridge under construction, maybe that can give a clue.
The Ford T was an old car at that time and mounted on a pedestral at some dealer/service station.
In the last picture on the bridge there is a notice on either side there is a notice, partly legible saying something about headlights.
Nice pictures, many will love them.

Cheers harit

Hi Harit:

This was passed on to me by a friend called Mike from Germany. I will try to get more information from him. All that is known is he has this ablum of this couple who were touring Europe in 1932. There are lot more pictures from that album but nothing to do with cars but taken along the tour. Very nice photography considering they were taken with hardware from that era. I can mail you the scan if you are interested.

Can anyone identify the motorcycle in the 10th picture?

Cheers

Here are some period publicity shots from VW showing oval windowed cars (1953/57).

Interesting to note this shot features a 'Standard' version, with no chrome.

Recently I was on a vacation to Lanka and clicked a couple of vintage cars - some model of Vauxhall and Merc. Well, I actually saw quite a few classic cars, howvever I wasn't able to click all of them as they were on the move. Hopefully, I'll upload the pics shortly after transferring them from the memory card.

Here is one of my favorite photos, showing Jean Bugatti (son of Ettore) standing next to the prettiest of the Royales, the Esder's car. Interestingly I read that it was ordered new without headlights. What proportions!

The Great Depression of 1929 was a very bad phase in modern history when the US economy came tumbling down.It had devastating effects and the first ones to perish were the luxury marques of cars whose demand was almost gone. Many companies had to close down. The greatest car ever built the Bugatti Royale (about which Karl has said in the previous post) was just launched and Ettore Bugatti had to beat a hasty retreat losing much of his wealth. Manufacture of the car was shelved soon.
Some images from the US of A featuring the devastation:

Nice pictures and the timing is perfect. Luckily the markets seem to be recovering.
The Esders Bugatti was built without headlights because it was never intended to be used in the dark! That is supposed to be a fact. The body was later removed and the car rebodied. Schlumpf brothers were recreating the Esders car, using a Bugatti railcar engine. It could not be completed before the financial disaster.

Regarding Bugatti Royale and the American depression, I see no link. While in America a lot of great marques died, merged, downsized, the European great marques in France and Italy declined because the local tax laws did not favour these road giants. The Bugatti Royale was not bought by even a Maharaja, and they had no depression to worry about.
About the depressed couple, could they could have been directed to a psychiatrist. Actually the people were not depressed, they lost their jobs, homes and because of that they left for places looking for better opportunities. Many of those who speculated and lost all were depressed. and may have shot themselves. There are quite a few pictures of people who lost all and then set off in their cars and were living in them.

A few picture post cards from my nearly decade old European trip. The pictures were perhaps clicked even earlier as many older cars of the 1970's can be sighted:

Hi mods, can we replace the word "Old" with "B+W"?

Here a king is inspecting a factory or workshop. Car appears to be a Ford.

There's something about vintage cars that sets them apart from the contemporary cars we see today. I always prefer a car that has a classy design compared to a car that is just about speed.
