Thank you for your help, Basil. The first one in fact is 1950 Ford two door sedan. Talking about Cadillac Ghostbusters vehicle: thank you for pointing me on Caddy model. I have taken this model year basing on Wiki info and did not check on its model. This one on my picture is replica of original 1959 Cadillac Hearse Ghostbusters Vehicle based on 1974 Cadillac Hearse vehicle. I made correction on my picture.
And last blue car still remains a mystery.

Jadom,

Upon further digging, the other car is a 1939 Crosley

I suspected as much, but just wasn't sure on what year.
To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.

I'm taking my hat off to you, Sir. Thank you so much for your help, Basil. I have never heard about this manufacturer especially that I would place this car somewhere in Europe according to its size. So now all my picture will have descriptions.
Thanks again.

And who says that these old timers have no soul? Not like nowadays Hondas or Kias which are just a tools used to take you from point A to point B.

Have you ever seen a Kia EV6? Not "just a tool".....

Nice shot with appropriate processing Addy.
My grandmother had several of those (in succession), she always called it her "hondenhok" (=dog house), great cars and quite reliable, but quite weak when involved in an accident.

I love the R4 and had a maroon 4GL (with the grey wide plastic strips on the lower doors). We went all over Europe camping in it on my annual leave from the British Army. Fun to drive with the push-pull gear lever and the only car I have ever, in more than fifty years of driving, had a speeding ticket in! Albeit for exceeding 30mph

I traded up to a white R8S, then a red R12TL, then a gold (colour) R16TS and my final Renault, a green R17TS with a black go-faster Starsky and Hutch stripe . Your photo brought back many happy memories Addy, TFS.

Hello Brian,

the CitroŽn 2CV still has the umbrella-grip: the push-pull gear lever, and it still is great fun to drive it. It just drove almost 4800km in 3 weeks to France and back.



Here you see ours, still going strong.

Thanks Harm. I know the deux chevaux well and was tempted recently to invest in one to tinker with, but it was too far gone with the dreaded tin worm. A work colleague of mine a few years ago had a red and white "Dolly" 2CV and spent a small fortune having it professionally restored. He takes it to shows now.

Yours looks great

Ours from 1985 is maintained by a dedicated workshop. We bought it in 2009 for 4k, now it is worth about 12,5k.
We love to go camping in it, no, with it. We do sleep in a tent



In France, this summer, on a camping site in the department of Gers.
