Here are some images of vintage vehicles which I found outside a small repair shop in a rural area. I hope you like them.
They certainly took me back!

Nice series... The details on the hood ornaments/badges are particularly interesting. Well done!

I like the old 1938/9 Graham (#7). Now that is an unusual car

SENSATIONAL. Love the Thunderbirds, & those early F100s would be worth a fortune.
Cheers, Pickles.

Thanks everyone.

Steve, I'm surprised to hear someone mention that old Graham-Paige Supercharger. You must really know your cars!

"Supercharger"! Graham-Paige....didn't know any of them had a supercharged engine....are you familiar with any further engine specs, capacity, configuration, power etc?. I presume the car you're talking about, is the car with the "pointy" bonnet.
Cheers, Pickles.

Pickles: No unfortunately I am not knowledgeable about any further engine specs on the Graham.
I only know that it was a very posh car in it's time and an obvious work of art. Here's one in pristine shape. Not my photo.

Fantastic..... a really "classic" car.....I think it may even have a "Supercharged", badge on the side of the bonnet. Surely, someone will restore the car in your original image!
Cheers, Pickles.

Despite the supercharger, output was modest by modern standards. I think they made about 125 horsepower from a 218 cubic inch six. The company merged with Kaiser after WWII, but quit making cars a short time later. What remained of the company went into building Rototillers and real estate investment (Madison Square Gardens!?).
