Analysis of out-of-print classic cars with pictures: Fall in love with this damn retro wave!
The 2019 World Vintage Cars Yangtze River Delta Open has been over for more than half a month, but I am still immersed in the beauty of classic cars (and the fantasy of being adopted by a rich woman).
In response to the strong request of the masses of the people and the driver’s master, talk to the big guys about the cars that have appeared in the 6 episodes of videos and that although they have not appeared, they are more beautiful (or expensive).
Volvo (Volvo) P1800 Coupe
Let’s start an appetite with Uncle Frank’s Volvo P1800 Coupe. Uncle Fu’s car has been experiencing minor problems since the first day of the race. With the help of three car repair scenes, he has raised the highest appearance rate of this season. Speaking of Volvo, this model can be said to be the classic among the classics. But at the beginning of its design, it was almost blocked by Volvo. At the beginning, Volvo did not plan to set up a separate production line for this car, and found a large number of foundries but failed to negotiate for various reasons. Seeing that the P1800 was about to be hidden by the snow, its designer Patterson began to independently seek financing-at this moment, its spy photos appeared in the newspapers. As a result, Volvo had to admit this “illegitimate child”, and re-cooperated with the British company Jensen, and the P1800 was finally officially put into production.
These three old cars from Germany and France also left a deep shadow on me. After all, they were pushed in the first half of the entire schedule.
Such a car is called a cyclecar, which is a small, lightweight, and inexpensive car, and its significance is to fill the gap between the motorcycle and the car market. The vast majority of cyclecars in the world are produced in France, which were the “net celebrity models” at the time. In 1920, Cyclecar GP was specially made in Le Mans. Later, the larger and more comfortable cars represented by Austin 7 gradually reduced their prices, and the cyclecar was “exhausted”.
Austin (Austin) Seven
3- 1939·United Kingdom
Austin 7 turned out in 1922, when it was a big hit. A series of well-known brands including BMW, MINI, Nissan, and swallow (later Jaguar), the original models were modified (OEM) based on it. To this day, “Seven” is still a limited edition that flashes from time to time in the MINI product sequence.
4- 1931·United Kingdom
The Invicta S-type of this rich German woman Annette has a displacement of 4.5L. At that time, building a car seemed very simple. If you want to run faster, you just need to increase the displacement. This model won the Monte Carlo Rally Championship in 1931 and was one of the fastest cars in the world at that time.
However, the goose, it first caught our attention not because it ran fast, but because of the “bird staring at the crotch” on the front of the car. In fact, it is a kiwi bird… At that time, the signs on the front of these cars were basically custom-made, so I don’t know why a New Zealand national bird would appear on a British car driven by a German. .
