A couple unusual cars from an email that's going around

Above a 1930 Ruxton model C

Above, 1954 Buick Wildcat concept car

below, a Bugatti type 101 roadster concept car, body by Ghia

shark tooth grin, it's on a Willys, or a shark nose '38 Graham

Arnold in Commando, lousy movie editting, but it was the 80's and focused on the shoot ups and explosions

Above, the Blazer was a good idea, the bad guys toss the ignition wires, so Arnold's character has to push the Blazer to the edge of the hill and let gravity roll it downhill and after the bad guys who kidnap his daughter, Alyssa Milano

Sunbeam Alpine that kept switching through the scene from having fender badges and a front license plate to having neither

our gang pedal car

great photography of flamejobs

found on but they don't credit their sources, so I don't know 

Kimberly Cooper special

pedal cars that look like fire engines, the collection at the Fire Memories Museum

Parnelli and the #98 at the March 1965 Kearney Bowl midget races

the midget racer referred to would be similar to the #83 in the Justice Brothers museum

found on the wall of the Fire Memories Museum

Fire Memories Museum in Banning

1919 Seagrave that was kept in the back of the firehouse it served, it stayed there a really long time, and the firefighters there decided to restore it when they weren't on call! They still own it and it's here at the museum on loan!

huge collection of portable classic extinguishers, patches, tools, and axes!

this one is for the kids to play on, it has water connected, and the turret is moveable so kids can aim it at the target "house on fire" (good side effect is that this waters the lawn!)

1952 Willys Jeep

there is a scrap yard that handles firetrucks (not many find good second homes, they are large, expensive, and few people can handle storing or restoring them) and they call the museum to let them know about som truck, which wasn't the only cool thing they had to show, this front bumper was there, and makes a great bar!
