Okay #weirdcarmastodon do your thing. This guy is trying to find all/part of a body to repair his #Morris Ambulance, and a windscreen (which yes is rare, and worst of all he only just replaced).

Be sure to boost this and drop him a line if you can help at all.

Finally took what is probably the favourite #ClassicCar in my motely "collection" for its first spin this year as the distance between my two garages is apparently multiple miles. Not that the map agrees.

It's almost as good as being on a #motorcycle, but my manky knee likes it a bit better.

BMW 503

The BMW 503 is a two-door 2+2 gran turismo in both Coupรฉ and Cabriolet form manufactured by German automaker BMW from 1956 until 1959. The company developed the 503 alongside the 507 roadster in an attempt to sell a significant number of luxury cars in the United States. The 503 and 507 cost about twice their projected price and did not recover their costs.

I'm told that as an artist you must embrace the popular subjects to ensure success.

That's why I decided to do this artwork of an Austin Metro Chairman.

It's probably why I'm also not a household name.

It's on Redbubble too, if you fancy a print: https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/45982659

An artwork of pale blue Austin Metro Chairman with a plain white background.  This is a specially adapted vehicle for wheelchair users, usually used as transport for them rather than the vehicle they drove themselves.

Random classic car spot of the day. Found this just lurking in a nearby industrial estate. I think it was a Plymouth once, maybe?

#classiccar #classiccars #musclecar

Photo of a mean-looking American Muscle car - originally a Plymouth or a Dodge, I think - with four headlights and a big bonnet scoop, painted matt black and looking positively malevolent.
Photo of the rear of said car showing off some fat rear tyres. Clearly a drag racer of some kind.

The successful post-war design was the second sports car to provide real added value with a tailgate and was considerably more comfortable than its roadster brother, the AC Ace

In the UK, it's a classic if the community agree it's a classic. (but the community is often wrong ;) )

It can be registered as Historic (OldTimer) once it's 40 years old (no tax or MOT (TUV) test requirement).

Clubs say that veterans were built before 1905, and vintage if built between 1905 and 1930.

#ClassicCar #ClassicCars #VintageCars #VeteranCars #OldTimer

In Germany, a car is considered a classic car if it is at least 30 years old. In the Netherlands, a car must be at least 40 years old.
How is it in your countries?

From todays #ClassicCar-Summit in #Trebur #Astheim (South-Hesse)

I've got to get out there and finish installing the fuel pump relay on my #VW #type3 ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I just have no idea what to make of this mess of old fucked up wiring, and a mental block about #electrical in general.

I think this is the "Voltage Supply Relay" so one of the wires that runs off of it will go up front to the fuel pump relay. Then I just have to figure out which wire runs to the ECU.

I think I need an induction loop meter...

Simon Templar / THE SAINT
-> VOLVO P1800

The TV series "The Saint" first aired in 1962 and ran until 1969, starring Roger Moore and was a huge success. In the series, Moore embodies the charming and smart Simon Templar, who works as a thief and private detective, hunting down criminals and dispensing justice.

#Oldtimer #ClassicCars #ClassicCar #Volvo

I got my new fuel pump relay for my #vw #squareback, now I just have to find the wires that some monkey cut off to bypass the old one. The diagram shows wires running to the pump, ECU, voltage regulator, and auxiliary air valve. I *think* I know where all those are, and I have a test light so I can tell if they have voltage.

Right #WeirdCarMastodon, back to #NameThatCar challenge business, and it's another classic convertible. Broadly a contemporary of the E-Type this one has at least one cinematic claim to fame that the E-Type does not!
Can you name it from this image?

The boot lip has a chrome finished hinge, behind which the red roof has been stowed away. A large wooded rimmed steering wheel and round door mirror complete the picture.

There was some excitement around #WeirdCarMastodon last week about a #2CV with a wooden body.
Here from my weekend out is a car, that is no longer a 2CV, but is largely made of #wood! Its 2CV origins can be seen in the lights and fenders. All the mechanical parts are from a 602 CV that succumbed to chassis rot. Everything else was made by the owner! It is an incredible piece of work!

Part of the interior is visible with red leather seats, without head restraints, and a fairly large steering wheel. There are chrome finished window wipers and a bar running up through the entre of the window glass.

Side view of a blue car with two doors, the rear door is reverse hinged. The windows are open, inside a blue leather or possibly vinyl trim is just visible. Some chrome trim and a vinyl roof visible on the rear of the car.
View of the front right-hand corner of a blue car. The car has dual round headlamps set in a chrome surround.  A side light and side indicator are set low in the wing, in front of the front wheel, these also have a chrome surround. A chrome bumper and grille with many thin horizontal bars is partial visible.

Made my first parts order for the #vw #squareback yesterday; just a gas cap, front turn signal lenses and some rubber seals for the engine lid. I don't want to put gas in the tank to flush it until I have a cap so it doesn't evaporate. I suppose I could go ahead and take the plugs out to see if they need replaced but the wires look new so I'm hoping it gets fire when there's fuel to spray. If not, rebuilding the distributor shouldn't be a big deal. #classicCar #mechanic #car #aircooledvw #type3
