You got it Dave. That handy little device is a Gazogene. It was manufactured in Spain In the thirties. It burned either wood or charcoal producing hydrocarbons that would reburn in either gas or diesel powered engines. This one still works.

Good job. If dave doesn't respond in a little while the floor is up for grabs.

Yes and VIN's also. Service records, mileage, and condition of the front ball joints on all vehicles you can see and those you can't.

Forget the cars in the lower part of the picture. I'm asking about the structure and immediate vehicles. There is something significant about that scene. And the make of the cars.
Hint: San Francisco and only two.

You know those little trophys you get for winning the car show? Back in the fifties somebody decided those weren't grand enough so they decided to build some bigger ones. They got two built in San Francisco before they discovered that they were really hard to move and it took a really BIG shelf to put them on not to mention it had to be in an enormous room with a super large door.

Tell me I'm right.

Well I surprised you guys didn't get this one. This is one of two, two car dealer showrooms That Kaiser-Frasier tried out in San Francisco back in the early 50's. Not only were they two car show cases but BOTH car rotated! Now if that wouldn't sell a car I don't know what would!
The second picture is the one they didn't build in 54.

(Maybe I should have put this one in the " Come on Man!' thread).

Somebody ask a question.

Wow, oh yeah but nothing sells cars more like a giant inflatable gorilla in bermuda shorts!



Ok, come on no googling, why was the 3.8 Buick V6 that came out in 1977 called an "even fire"?
