=Altohomcho; Amazingly it was a hit during the only 5/6 years of its production and that too being a non-american/european.This ones probably a 48/ 49 215[ FX]. The later ones the FJs,had different front grills.
Both correct more or less,well done guysThis example is a 1950 Holden FX Sedan.


Produced November 1948 to September 1953.
Australia was a different place in 1948, the Second World War had finished in 1945 and was still fresh in everyones memory. Australians of the time hungered for American style freedom and American styled cars, infact at the time America was very well loved and respected by the general population for the help they had given Australia during the war. It was in these years that only around 1 in 8 Australians owned an automotive but by the time Holdens new construction had finished its run this ratio was closer to 1 in 4.

Default ID:673; 1967 DKW-Vemag Fissore

ID:673 is a 1967 DKW-Vemag Fissore coupé.



One of over 700 cars produced.
The Fissore was mass-produced in Brazil by Veículos Máquinas Agricolas (VEMAG) S/A between 1964 and 1967.

The body was designed in Italy by Carrozeria Fissore, only for the Brazilian market.

Mechanicals were identical to those of the normal DKWs made in Brazil - 3 cylinder 2 stroke engine with front-wheel drive.

In 1967, Volkswagen purchased Vemag and killed production of all DKW models. However, several features of this car survived in other Audis, and in the first VW Passats.

The engine was a two-stroke three-cylinder 981 cc engine.
It put out 60 bhp @ 4500 rpm and 9 kgm torque @ 2500 rpm.
It was water-cooled by thermo-siphon (no water pump) and featured a Lubrimat automatic lubrication system.

The gearbox had 4 forward gears, all synchromesh. All four syncromeshed gears could become reverse gears by pulling an under-dash cable !!!

It had a conventional dry disc clutch as standard. A Saxomat semi-automatic clutch was optional.

Front suspension had a spring cross with a transverse leaf spring combined with "A" arms. Rear suspension had transverse leaf spring with dual shock-absorbers.

This car is now a sought rarity in South America.

Default ID:674; 1962 Sunbeam Harrington Le Mans GT coupé

ID:674 is a 1962 Sunbeam Harrington Le Mans GT coupé.
A lovely sports hatchback, this baby blue specimen lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The Car
Between Oct. 1961 and Feb. 1963, Thomas Harrington Coach Builders Ltd, England, coach-built barely 250 Le Mans GT coupe bodies on the on the Sunbeam Alpine II sporty two seat open car (not a convertible) chasses.

Harrington added a permanent "GT" style fiberglass roof and George Hartwell performance tuning to the 1592 cc, 80 bhp engine of the Sunbeam Alpine open car (made by Rootes Group). The original Sunbeam Alpine Series II open car is more proliferous with close to 20,000 units having been built.

The Rootes Group was once upon a time, an expansive auto-manufacturing group. Their brands were: Hillman, Humber, Sunbeam, Singer. Coventry was their home (where team-BHPians, Aneesh "revvedup" Kalra and Rohan "humyum" Lakhlani currently study auto. engg.)

In the later 1960s, Chrysler USA, bought Rootes. They also bought and destroyed the French SIMCA, Talbot and Matra. They injected capital, rationalized the product lines, and providing their advanced "analog" electronics.
However all the brands lost character and crumbled under the Chrysler umbrella and eventually,
Chrysler sold Rootes Group and SIMCA to Peugeot, which branded them Talbot.

The Place
This picture is taken at 1912, West Fourth Avenue,
in the suburb of Kitsilano, of Vancouver British Columbia.
West 4th Avenue is one of the important streets there.

The picture was shot at the downtown West End in Vancouver:
1909, West Fourth Avenue, Kitsilano, Vancouver,
British Columbia V6J 1M7, Canada

The pic shows that "Bath House" which sells bath towels and shower curtains has come up where
the "Living Elements", which sold gourmet organic foods, dried fruits/herbs, etc. used to be.

Kitsilano’s famous beach is Greer’s Beach -- a popular summer destination for the residents of Vancouver. There is a tram line running along West 4th Avenue and to the beach. University students and hippies made West 4th Avenue Canada’s “coolest” street. Also nicknamed Rainbow Road, West Fourth is a place for vegetarian restaurants, alternative music, health food stores and head shops, etc.

Here is a picture of how the exact spot of the photograph looks today.

Same angle as the pic with the Sunbeam Harrington LeMans.
