A friend of mine's dad was a mechanic for a Rambler dealership and I always asked him questions.

How about one of you guys who haven't asked a question for a while ask one?

Still waiting for someone to ask a question.

We had a question concerning the Stout Scarab a couple of weeks back. I ran accross this video todat and it is very informative on the Scarab. Takes about 6-7 minutes. Take a look. The man who designed this vehicle is the same person who designed the Ford Tri-Motor.

Somebody come up with a good question.

Stout Scarab We go for a ride. A time machine to 1936. Now in LA Noire - YouTube

That's easy! A couple were the סוסיתא and the כרמל and let's not forget the גלבוע!
I can just imagine the גלבוע screaming off into the night.

To answer the question properly Autocars Co. Ltd was the first Israeli car manufacturer . It was founded in the early fifties.

Ansel Adams style photograph shooting? That's the first thing I thought of when I saw it.
