I want that ’64 T-Bird!
I’ll fight you for it.
Sorry, already booked for me. Collecting tomorrow 😉
The elephant’s graveyard is in Austria? Who knew?
Austria? Wow, other than the ’64 Thunderbird and the XJ Cherokee I think I spy at the back of the line, some poor Austrian has built a collection of the worst of the American auto industry. “No vondah zey buy ahh cahs.” 🙂
No no no, clearly this a great Austrian who is, Somewhere In Austria, shielding the public from visions of hell. (Thunderbird excepted, ofcourse).
He also has the good ones – how about a genuine 427 drop top 67 Vette with 4 speed, or a supercharged Studebaker Golden Hawk?
The 80’s called…
Thought I do have a weakness for the bustleback Seville, against my own better judgment.
He needs to add a Pinto or Vega.
Happy Motoring, Mark
The Seville or the 79 Toro would look good in my driveway (if they were in slightly better shape that is)
He could be a smart Austrian who gets the Detroit Iron at rock bottom prices. He may be taking advantage of the European US car craze.
Anyway, when that giant meteor hits the earth there may be another nook in which a few of these cars survive.
Indeed he does.
Do I see an early W-body Regal coupe lurking behind the Toro? I adore these, with their fantastic brushed/slotted alloys, opposed wipers, color-keyed column shift, and million-button dashboard. W: weird, wonderful.
Where have all the odd cars gone?
Don’t forget the door mounted seat belt…..
Ah, the Seville.
A former employer had one. He put his suitcase in the trunk, used the auto-close function and watched as the car made a perfect impression in the beveled portion of the trunk lid of his suitcase. Hilarious.
As in there was a nice square molding in the sheetmetal of the trunk lid? That’s amazing and a damning indictment of GM sheetmetal quality of the time. It’s not like those trunk lid closing motors have an amazing amount of torque.
I’ll go out on a limb and say the Toronado is a ’79. I have always liked this series ( ’79 thru ’85). Hopefully, its “not” a diesel=:-}
Everything is for sale by the way. I was there looking for something else (which he did not have). That’s what’s in the workshop:
… and that’s his own Studebaker, almost finished. Probably the only one in Austria.
The Niedermeyers still own land there?
