The Saab and the VW Bug are gimmies Kari, I want to make the orange car an English Ford but I don't know.

Dad owned a Simca at one time.

No Saabs in the pics Bob, although there was at least one 99 participating, small turn signals but rubber bumpers, puts it in about ’72 to ’76.

I didn’t know Simca’s were imported to the USA, I guess it was for a short period only? Not a lot of those in Finland either.

The cars in my pics are as follows:
1. Datsun 100A, not sure if it ever was available in that colour though, most of them were in metallic gold, silver, light blue or such.
2. Opel Kadett ’B’ coupé
3. Volvo PV 544
4. Ford Anglia
5. VW Beetle

All of these were quite common in Finland when I was a kid.

That 's what I had in mind. The Opel Kadett is the rallye version. The small Datsun, I remember them as being orange most of the time. Great you could take the pictures each time between the trees.

Wash day.

Never did three at a time. In fact I doubt if I have washed the 350Z or Accord four times each since I have owned them. In Florida, about once a week.

Favorite is the 350Z, just a ball to drive. 127K miles and it's perfect. Sentimental favorite is the CR-V. Bought new in 2007 when my wife was with me. She would drink coffee in the customer lounge while I kicked tires and did the paperwork. After six new Hondas she knew the routine. The Accord is just transportation.

Left hand drive? I should know it but I don't?

Thought of you when this 1954 Traction went on Bring a trailer for $12,600 USD.

Thanks Lieven, for some reason I thought the Panhard was British.  Should have know better.  I only know of it what you have posted in the past.  Gave me the chance to learn.

Second and third ones are cute.

Quite a coincidence, to run into this obscurity twice in a short time, albeit in pictures. A car/technology magazine that my dad subscribes, features a ”50 years ago” portion, and in a recent issue there was a Simca test drive. ”Speedy Candy” is the rough translation of the heading lol! That’s the ”1200 Special” with a higher-output engine. 65hp I think Smile

Dad was not a car guy. Period.  But he bought odd makes.  The Essex for example.  Also VW Squarebacks, Plymouths, Nash, and Nash Ramblers, Willys, and that Simca.  Probably others that I can't remember.  Other than those he had just two Chevrolets, and no Fords.

Mom drove a Willys like this:

Kari, I hope that I never have to learn Finnish.  Kaarrek................ etc.etc.  I have trouble pronouncing dog and cat.  Smile

I meant to comment that your dad had seemed to have a taste for ”different” cars. Rambler, Simca etc. I imagine a Saab or two might have fit in the selection, as SAAB USA started out in North East in the late ’50s. You may have inherited some of that, the English Fords, not to mention Fiat’s that you showed earlier really were something else in the USA. Guess those comments were in the double post I deleted.

My dad had a Fiat 125 Special in the late ’70s, a 10 year old car back then. Kinda weird to see one just like it a few decades later in a museum! Huh...

Cars, cars, and more cars - Page 7 34eda610

It had the 1600 twin cam engine and dual carb, a little over 100hp. A little later he traded it for an almost new metallic burgundy Saab 96. Here’s a moss green example of the model in the same museum.
