Recommended Posts

Just a couple days befoer the big crash this summer that let us C-n-G less for a few weeks I posted a photo-trivia thread:

This is that photo. Tell me who made this car and why it's significant.

Heh. It looks like some kind of Chrysler Airflow knockoff, running on mini-spares from a modern car. But beyond that, I really don't know what it is.

Funny, someone said "Airflow Ripoff" last time too... never got the correct answer though. This should be exciting. I think it got up to like 3 pages last time wiht not one person even close. :D

Hey, something just dawned on me. That thing looks like an early Toyota I saw once in some magazine long ago. I remember at the time thinking that the car looked like a pipsqueak version of the Chrysler Airflow. Is it an early Toyota?

Yes indeed, after years of manufacturing knock-off Singer Sewing machines this was Toyota's very first attempt at making a car. If you ask me they should have quit while they were "ahead".

Every singele body-line proportion & detail on this car makes me think of :puke:

1936 Toyota AA:

The only car in Automotive history that is MORE flatterig in a cheap 1:43 scale toy than it is in real life in Concourse D'Elegance condition.
