    ***Mühldorfer Classic Car Show (Part 3)*** (56K Warning)

    Part 3


    THIS WAS MY FATHER'S FIAT TOPOLINO Type A!

    It's actually an NSU-Fiat meaning it was built by NSU in Germany under license. 500cc 4-cylinder engine with 13-horsepower and a top speed of 75 km/h, 90 km/h when going downhill according to my father. My father drove this car all the way to England as a young man when he had an internship in Plymouth at a British brewery. Must have taken forever with 75 km/h top speed eh?

    The car is currently in Moosburg, which is part of the county of Freising, hence the "FS" license plate. The owner is still the guy my father sold it to in the late 1960s! This was awesome. My father's first car shows up at a classic car show in Mühldorf. What a small world! :eusa_danc








    Opel Commodore Coupe





    Anyone know what these older VWs were called?



    Porsche 911 and Auto Union 1000SP





    Porsche 911 and a beautiful MG Roadster


    Auto Union 1000SP with the top down, good opportunity to take a shot of the inside...







    Classic Renault Caravelle



    Opel GT



    Plymouth Barracuda. This thing was so hot and badass. 383cid V8 under the hood. Anyone got the specs?









    The Barracuda and a Porsche 911, a car that was probably around when the 'Cuda roamed the streets...



    Cadillac Seville with terrible wheels.







    Beautiful VW Bus. Brings back the memories of my hippy days in the 1960s...wait a minute, I wasn't even born yet!


    And another shot because it was so lovely (digging the color combo)



    BMW Isetta with 13-horsepower 1-cylinder engine. This car has cult status in Europe.





    The legendary Citroen SM with a Maserati V6 engine. I don't know about you guys, but I like it. Beautiful.





    Jaguar E-Type and Porsche 911



    Mercedes W115 200D (55-horsepower) Hearse.



    Opel Monza. This was a pretty good-looking Opel in its day, still is.



    Ford Mustang, I think...



    This car was called "Champion". There was a little history written on the piece pf paper behind the front windshield, but for some reason I didn't read it!



    Anyone know which Chevrolet sedan this is? Caprice? Malibu? I tried looking for references but there was nothing. The air slits on the trunk made me think it was rear-engined (Corvair?).





    Jaguar XJ


    Porsche 928S





    Mercedes-Benz 230GE from 1979!


    Mercedes-Benz 500SE (W126). The wheels add a hue of sportiness to an otherwise elegant and classy car.



    END OF PART III

    Correct. It is a Ford Mustang.
    The Chevrolet is definitely NOT rear-engined, at least not from the factory.
    Growing up, we had a neighbor that drove a 3-wheeler, front-side of car was the front door "car" that looked very similar to the Isletta.
    Funky car but great gas mileage.


    The Auto Union is a sweet convertible.
    Wouldn't mind having that Opel Commodore Coupe either.

    Great Pics. Thanks for sharing.

    Anytime.

    Thanks for the info. By the way, any idea what that blue Chevrolet sedan could be?

    It really looks like a 1970 Caprice.
    However, others on this forum should be able to nail it 100%.







    However, I can't seem to find a picture that brings it in any closer.

    Wow, looks pretty much like the Chevy in my pics!

    The guy who told me it was a Chevrolet Biscayene was from Canada. Maybe this car was sold in Canada under that name?

    The Chevy is definitely a '71. The grill is a little different than anything sold here. With only 2 taillights per side, I'd say it's a BelAir, which was the lowest trim level that year. Biscayne has previously been the lowest level model, but I don't believe the Biscayne was around anymore in '71 (at least not in the U.S.). They are all just trim levels on the full-size model. The Corvair was much, much smaller.

    The vents in the trunk were exit for the 'flow-through ventilation', which kept fresh air in the car's cabin as you were driving.

    Thank you for the detailed information on this car.
