Back seat of a Caddy. And pretty ladies! Dagmars!

OH MY GOD Mike, damn that is so friggin awesome! I could answer it easily too as I am a Motorama nut and have some literature and trinkets from them. What blows me away is my dad was selling Oldsmobiles and Buicks during those Motorama years and I never heard of him going. I didn't even know they existed until a girlfriend in highschool gave me a token/keychain from the 1956 Motorama and have been intrigued with the Motoramas ever since. It kills me that I missed seeing the cars from them at Pebble Beach a few years ago.

I had a fire in my home and attached garage everything burned in 73, a 32 Ford coupe hot rod, a 67 camaro, every thing including a scrap book with a token LOL! while I was at work. my wife and sons were at home! The fire department said it started accidentally by a lightning strike!! My son is 44 and a few years ago admitted he was playing with a zippo lighter and started the fire!! I almost took off my belt to give him a couple of swats!


My dad was a Chrysler man, but he took us to all the shows! It was a great childhood for for us old guys!!! Remember the tv shows Dobby Gillis, Beaver, My three sons, etc, etc, the last show I really liked was Titus (with the hot rod Garage)

It's funny you should mention Leave it to beaver. A few years ago my wife and I were looking into ways to have custom fabric manufactured in relatively small quantities. We checked out one company that had a process that printed directly on to cloth and the sales rep was Jerry Mathers! Beaver. My wife proudly presented me with a autographed picture of jerry Mathers. ( I would have rather had a picture of "The Beav")
I"ll bet you guys are jealous now!

Ok back to trivia. The Motorama questions answer was, 1954 and the main difference between the Cadillac "El Camino" and the " La Espada" was one had a roof and the other was a open car.

New question:
What famous European Automobile Company made cars, airplanes and power boats using the same engine.

First one that comes to mind is BMW, but that sounds too easy.

Ah Haa! You both went for the easy ones! To my knowledge neither BMW nor Roll-Royce produced airplanes or boats. Engines yes. Nope. This company built cars, airplanes, boats and, oh yeah I forgot, trains!

Messerschmidt. If not them I'm pretty sure it was one of the big German companies. If not then that's a hint... not German (or is it?).

Messerschmitt! Great guess! But wrong. They didn't build engines nor boats nor trains. Ok here is a hint. The person who established this company is dead but the company isn't.

Nope not Ford (English of course). The America Ford Company certainly built cars, airplanes and boats but alas no trains. But we are looking for a European Company. Hint #3 (see below)

Powered by two 475 hp magnesium race engines. Counter-rotating propellers. Full down flaps dropped the landing gear. Pilot laid horizontally like a F-1 driver.
