1957 Lambretta’s Space Invaded

bikelambretta1957

So I rode my scooter down to the milk bar in 1983 and started playing Space Invaders. I’m on the same game with one life left. I’m not sure whether the ol’ Lamby will get me home again…


1957 BMW Isetta – An Anomaly

1957 BMW Isetta Cabriolet

 

 

 

 

 

The Isetta was not particularly popular. It got smashed by the VW beetle and the Mini in sales and popularity.  We’re not quite sure why. It’s got everything: a front opening door… and did we mention the front opening door?


1957 Buick Out Cruisin’

Whilst regular ANOCSC commenter Ry was trying to get a photo of his door handle in the rear view mirror, a 57 Buick went rumbling past causing Ry to almost drop his phone on to the road and into the following traffic. That would have been a disaster as we wouldn’t have witnessed this rockin’ 57 Buick! It’s low, it’s got pinstripes, it’s black and orange, it’s got white walls, it’s got a rat sticker and it’s a coupe. Dream car wish list ticked off.

Spotted this 57 Chevy in Daylesford, Victoria when the ANOCSC crew popped out for a quick spa and massage.

57 Chevy – It Was A Dark And Stormy Night…

“It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly, a 57 Chevy appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up…”

This belongs to Garry. I spotted this car and just about crashed into another parked car as I was driving past. It’s a beautiful piece of work. Garry, any time you think you need to give the car to someone who will love it more than their own family, just let me know!

This one, apparently, wasn’t good enough for the show; and was relegated to the carpark. Couldn’t fault it, myself.

Chevy Red Hire – What A Sensation

Spotter: Fuzzy

Location: Melbourne

These two 57 Chevy’s were immaculate in every which way. The ANOCSC raises a glass to Chevy Red Hire (chevyredhire.com.au) for keeping these beauties in such pristine condition… and, most importantly, driving them!
