don't you want to keep it as genuine as possible?
molds n other mycotoxins are no friends and def. ain't healthy! (they thrive in acidic environments, low on oxygen, feed on sugar -inside the body-. they can't stand oxygen (inside the cells. forgive me, that's where I come from)).
therefore the 1st thing that comes to mind, to eliminate it, is baking soda! (+ fresh dry air/sunshine). or natrium (sodium) bicarbonate, as I call it.
don't know if it will work, but it should! because the pH is a staggering 14! (!!).

(many more anti-mold solutions on 'my planet', that are mostly kind of toxic like T tree oil, neem tree or -colloidal- silver. think I would also fire up a steam cleaner -since we happen to have those- to kill!).


<Mule's name is Jade and here's a not so great pic http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm25/Lefty665/jadew_zpsdp146ryw.jpg She's a cutie. Won't post it directly to avoid irritating folks any more. >

awww! def. cute!!! TY! :-) LOVE that name too! (wondering now what sounds a mule can produce ;-))


<Pie filling is mostly molasses and the top crumbs of brown sugar and flour. It is pretty sweet. The flies like it, thus the name, "Shoo fly".>

so in order to eat it, you would all be waving at the pie constantly?


<Funny on the spreader, it does say Pequea, but the paint screams Deere. Farm equipment is strongly color branded. John Deere is green and yellow, Ford blue, Pequea apparently orange. It sort of looks like older Deere spreaders, but I'm no expert. Can you ask the guy who owns it? That's sure a stout pair pulling it. Second thought, Pequea may have converted it to horse drawn and put their name on it. >

yes, you're right! it c/b rebranded? esp. since I don't see spreaders as big among the Pequea collection? it's used with an Amish 'forecart', which is just as green.
(but not gonna try to peel off paint! since it's a eh manure spreader. ;-) (and because I have never ever seen L. angry, would like to keep it that way). will ask, but he thinks it's Amish. he never went to the States to buy them, all was ordered through the internet. but since the majority of the Amish doesn't have internet?
(so they stayed at Amish farms, people were very welcoming! and 'open', n tried to keep in touch after they returned home,
but ......... :-S). found Pequea community happens to be in Lancaster county?!

Elza and Nora are heavy horses?! :-) although L. likes his horses to be not too heavy. and most certainly not obese. at the beginning of last century, when every farm employed working horses, the horses on this island were not very heavy at all. they are strong, all 6 of them! but, for instance, when the fields are too! wet, L. picks his lightest horses. I've seen (black gelding) Prins/'Prince' up to his elbows in the (heavy sea-) clay at the end of the field, when harvesting pumpkins in autumn, but managed to persuade him to get out. (not funny!).   

<Thanks for the links, they're fun to explore.>
never meant in any other way than optional of course! only if you'd care to see... ?


<"Twangers" is what we used to call the Vs. It was for the sound they made when they hit the curb.>

TY!!!

I still have a vintage car, a Volvo Amazon from 1965. I'm the third owner, bought it in 1985 and drove it as my day-to-day car from '85 to '88 and '98 to '01. From '88 to '98 it was stored and got a body overhaul and repaint. After '01 I didn't have the time to drive/maintain it and it went into storage and hasn't been driven since then.

It was delivered new in 1965 by Volvo dealer G.M. Poppe in Middelburg (so very close to Angora). It seems the dealership is no longer there, there are some other Poppe auto dealers in the area (Goes/Vlissingen), but they are not (or no longer) Volvo anymore, but VW/Audi.

Late December '16 I went to see how it was doing and took some snaps. Plan is to get it back into a driving condition in the next year, we'll see if this new years resolution holds   . But overall I wasn't too displeased how it looked after 15 years.

2: A genuine B18 engine (and an aftermarket brake booster)



3: The rear



4: An impressive front



5: Interior



A6000 + E16-50kit(2) or E10-18/4(others)

was there a need to put my car on the front page? ;-)
you could have taken yours?! love it!!! also the baby blue is so pretty!!
what a shame you don't drive it anymore! hopefully it will see daylight again soon and hope you'll keep us posted?!
it looks great!!!

(love to hear stories behind people's cars! rather than seeing just a bunch of pics).

Poppe Middelburg? never heard of before! :-S interesting?! (but then 'our' VW dealer used to be de Baljuw ifIrecallcorrectly. parents bought a new car (i.e. beetle ;-)) there every 2 years before Poppe took over. will ask K. & J. if it rings a bell. they have a bright orange Volvo 'tank', hibernating in its cave since we have to pay road tax again. until it's 40 years of age. almost... :-)).

edit: it was Baljuw http://leiden.courant.nu/issue/LLC/1974-11-01/edition/0/page/8

1965








Ford Mustang

(Ford has factories all over the world. the Amsterdam Assembly was closed in 1981.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ford_factories)





The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The early production versions are often referred to as "19641 models" but all Mustangs were advertised, VIN coded and titled by Ford as 1965 models, though minor design updates for fall 1965 contribute to tracking 19641 production data separately from 1965 data with production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964, the new car was introduced to the public on April 17, 1964 at the New York World's Fair.

Executive stylist John Najjar, who was a fan of the World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane, is credited by Ford to have suggested the name. Najjar co-designed the first prototype of the Ford Mustang known as Ford Mustang I in 1961, working jointly with fellow Ford stylist Philip T. Clark. The Mustang I made its formal debut at the United States Grand Prix in Watkins Glen, New York on October 7, 1962, where test driver and contemporary Formula One race driver Dan Gurney lapped the track in a demonstration using the second "race" prototype. His lap times were only slightly off the pace of the F1 race cars.

An alternative view was that Robert J. Eggert, Ford Division market research manager, first suggested the Mustang name. Eggert, a breeder of quarterhorses, received a birthday present from his wife of the book, The Mustangs by J. Frank Dobie in 1960. Later, the book's title gave him the idea of adding the "Mustang" name for Ford's new concept car. The designer preferred Cougar (early styling bucks can be seen wearing a Cougar grille emblem) or Torino (an advertising campaign using the Torino name was actually prepared), while Henry Ford II wanted T-bird II.[16] As the person responsible for Ford's research on potential names, Eggert added "Mustang" to the list to be tested by focus groups; "Mustang," by a wide margin, came out on top under the heading: "Suitability as Name for the Special Car." The name could not be used in Germany, however, because it was owned by Krupp, which had manufactured trucks between 1951 and 1964 with the name Mustang. Ford refused to buy the name for about US$10,000 from Krupp at the time. Kreidler, a manufacturer of mopeds, also used the name, so Mustang was sold in Germany as the "T-5" until December 1978.

I'm sorry about that

However, that was over at the previous thread and I try to add a car in once in a while. I start to run out of vintage cars taken with a Sony (or Minolta) camera. Here is another Ford, taken with a Canon:

Canon EOS 1Ds2 | Canon 28-70/2.8L | 70mm | f/4.5 | 1/800s | 100iso


Da Rulez allow a non A or E-mount picture once in a while, this is once in a while

forgive me for enjoying it a lot?

beautiful!!! and looking remarkably good, for a Canon ;-)
is that a CHICKEN??

(explicitly talking to myself now, seeing the 'levee' word again. it kind of looks like 'lever'/french? like something risen/lifted??)





according to 'Sherlock' here + the WWW, it has to be a 1933 MG L1?
(pls correct me if I'm wrong?)




british? ;-)





(sorry! these aren't even snaps! I have this really annoying habit of dropping about anything (bike in this case) when I come across something I consider mighty interesting or rare/special/?, even when in the company of someone else.
meanwhile trying to keep up with someone on an electric bike. no time to change apertures, wait till everybody left the scene, let alone consider something called 'composition'.
and of course, never seen this car again! )
