One of the most desirable collector models is the 356 "Speedster", introduced in late 1954 after Max Hoffman, the sole US importer of Porsches, advised the company that a lower-cost, somewhat spartan open-top version could sell well in the American market. With its low, raked windscreen (which could be removed for weekend racing), bucket seats and minimal folding top, the Speedster was an instant hit, especially in Southern California.

looks a bit better "L" at 1024

For 1940, 1/2-ton pickups adopted the look of that year's Standard-series cars -- the first time since 1932 that trucks shared car styling. This included a vee'd grille, pointed hood, and headlights mounted into the fenders, giving these haulers a modern, classy look. Power continued to come from a choice of two flathead V-8 engines: a 136-cubic-inch 60-horsepower unit, or a 221-cid 85-hp version.

GTX viewed large on black

 

Rarely will you meet someone who is the original owner of an all time classic, well I did last Sunday night. Randy and Rhonda Reyher are the proud owners of this 1968 GTX powerhouse. You see, this was Randy's very first car, and while over the years he has taken the very best of care, Randy has painted the vehicle three times and refurbished the interior twice. The 440 engine boasting 478 HP and 526 ft. lbs. of torque, was redone in 1999. Another view below....

 

I remember this model back in 68, and my how I wanted one a couple years later when I got my licence, but it was so out of reach, so I settled on a 67, 4 door Dodge Monaco with a 318, not even close to this GTX......:-)))))

 

Vehicle Profile (from the Tyneside Heritage Vehicles website).

 

680 (GBB516K) was new to Tyne & Wear PTE in 1972 where it worked out of Byker depot. It was one of a batch of 25 long wheelbase, nearside staircase PDR2 Atlanteans purchased by the PTE at the time, and after 1974 carried the fleet number 716. It survived life in North Tyneside until 1981, when 680 along with fifteen other examples were sold to the Isle of Man National Transport Company where it was numbered 65 and re-registered as N875MAN.

 

For four years these Atlanteans saw service with the Isle of Man National Transport Company, but due to their age they had a relatively short life on the Island before being replaced by newer AN68 Atlanteans. Some of the batch were subsequently sold for further use back in the UK mainland or scrapped on the Island, except 680. 680 successfully stayed on the Isle of Man where it became a racing support vehicle, a role it was to have for the next 15 years.

 

When the time came for to replace 680 with a newer vehicle, it looked certain that it would go to scrap. However, she was saved by a couple of local enthusiasts who had taken a shine to her and bought it for storage until someone could be found to restore her to its former glory. On Saturday 3rd May 2003, 680 made its way back to the North East for preservation into its original Tyne & Wear PTE livery.

 

Back in Sonoma area for this treasure. Not exactly sure on the year of this truck (Looks to be about 1950: www.desertclassics.com/GMC50bDC.html 1950 gmc truck ), but has to be right in line with the dilapidated version (below) that I have photographed in the past. The contrast is very interesting, two of the same vehicles destined to two separate lives and therefore conditions.

 

For this photo I reworked the plate and the reflection on the plate to protect the innocent. Also did a bit of lens Blur to the background areas to keep the eyes on target.
