      Wow these are awesome pictures. The one thing that stood out for me is all the people, I don't think i saw one obese person in all those photos, its amazing how much society changed in this country in the last 40+ years (and yes I know that some of those pictures from from other countries). If we were to post random pictures of today things would be very different.

      Again some very cool pictures, love the one with the woman in full leathers on the bike.

      I could swear it was a Volvo P1800 until I saw the word Ferrari.

      Were they both designed by Battista Farina ?

      Here's a good one.
      This is the showroom of the VW dealer where my Dad worked in '61. My grandfather also worked there and is in this pic.
