The official car thread

Can't believe there isn't one.

Anything and everything car related. I'll start with a collection of sad pictures as a reminder of what happens when you don't follow the correct oil change intervals...

Found recently on a farm near the ocean in my home state. These EH Holdens are now rare and highly sought after although this one is a bit worse for wear.

I always wanted to collect vintage bonnet (hood) ornaments. One of my favourites.. On a Duesenberg I think.

As the article says...


I will start off by saying that every single one –with three exceptions, NOT for sale– has been sold to foreign buyers and shipped out of the island. Despite being able to see some interesting pieces, the likelihood of finding true, exotic classics in Cuba is almost null at this point. From 1996 on, Jeremy Clarkson (Motorworld series) and Michael E. Ware (Automobiles Lost and Found, 2008) exposed these marvels on a mass scale through television and writing; since then, many a collector has seized the opportunity to snatch these rarities through shady means, tempting the borders of Cuban export law. Other than what I write about, please abstain from asking me for any additional information on the places or people I have met –many names have been modified for privacy–, as it would be a hugely unnecessary annoyance –and danger, even– to these virtuous individuals. Thank you, and enjoy!
