One of my coworkers owns something of a unicorn, a white Corrado G60, but I don't think it's ENOUGH of a unicorn to qualify for this thread. My grandfather owns a pair of Studebakers, but I've whored those out enough on these boards... I'm trying to think if any of my other friends has a real unicorn, but aside from a couple of vintage trucks that I don't have pictures of on my computer I can't think of any. A friend of my grandfather's has a very nice, custom bodied American LaFrance RV based off an 50s firetruck, but I don't have any pics of it... If I find pics online though I may repost them.
Maybe Larry or Barry can correct me on this, because I'm sure I'm not 100% accurate, but my quick research tells me that this is a 1950 Buick Super Model 56C...12,259 produced but surely much less than that survive, even fewer in this condition (spotted outside St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton last year):
Studebaker Hawk...not sure what year, or if it's a Silver Hawk, Golden Hawk, or just a Hawk, or what the production numbers were, but, like the Buick, there can't be many left in this condition (spotted outside my doctors office last year):
They have the Internet on computers now?
That Studebaker is either a Silver Hawk or a Golden Hawk. The Flight Hawk and Power Hawk had the fin-less rear fenders of the older Commander. I'm going to err on the side of it being a Silver Hawk because other than one all-Gold Golden Hawk I've never seen a Golden Hawk with the fins body colored.
2nd unicorn in 2 days?
whats the take on this one? is it considered a unicorn?
i dont know enough about LOTUS,
quick search, and it shows it was the latest model of ESPRIT to be produced 2000-2004??
LOTUS esprit V8 it looked really nice
saw this Honda S600 on the freeway a few months back. sorry for the failed attempt at taking a cell phone pic.
I read the link Dave provided in the revised wikipedia page to his blog. I had no idea the engine in that Fisker was that mental! 660+ horsepower from the V10! Very cool indeed.
You must be even younger than me to not know the 959, or you just weren't into cars in the 80s. The 959 was the daddy, the car that redefined hi-po Porsches, particularly the AWD models and the turbo models that followed.
I've never seen a 959 road car, but I did see the Dakar car at Lime Rock recently.
