Guscha,

You're right. This is strange, and unexpected too. Sports cars and such do not fit in with the usual images of parades in Red Square, seems like the brain-washing worked!

Gushca,

Just a quick language correction so people don't misunderstand what you a referring to.

I think you mean to say "Thread" as in a 'string' of posts on the same topic, rather than "Threat" which is a declaration of an intention or determination to inflict punishment, injury, etc.

Passing comment:

The picture titled "journey.jpg" of poverty stricken people walking along a road was NOT unique to Russia during the early 1930's. That's the way it was here in the US during the 1930's too.
The problem is that most Americans are either too young to know about it or too old and stupid to remeber it or don't want to admit it or are one of the very very few that were not affected. I have many similar pictures taken right here in the US during the early 30's.

As for the frame construction of the car made out of (Curly) Beech wood. I will comment that CURLY Beech is extremely strong and weather resistant. Damned near impossible to split even with the best of hydraulic power splitters and very elastic. A similar wood is Cyprus sometimes called Iron wood. It is extremely hard. But no, i would not want a frame made of wood either.

I have always been a sucker for 4dr hardtop or convertible where the rears are suicide doors.

Did Lincoln make a Continental in the 60's that was a 4 door with suicide rears?

Gusha & BigKev: Here is another picture of a four door Lincoln. To me these are one of the best looking cars built during the 60's.

John, I have to respectfully dissagree:

And who can forget:

Resized Image


The late 60's, early '70s MOPAR's were the best looking cars of them all in those years.
