FMR Tg500

FMR Tg500By Jon’s pics – https://www.flickr.com/photos/nakedcharlton/245215254/, CC BY 2.0, commons.wikimedia.org

The FMR Tg500 was a sports car built by Fahrzeug- und Maschinenbau GmbH, Regensburg (FMR) from 1958 to 1961. Based on the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller monocoque, which otherwise was a platform for three-wheelers, the Tg500 was a four-wheeled car with a two-stroke straight-two engine. FMR had taken over production of the KR200 from Messerschmitt in 1956. While the KR200 still used the Messerschmitt name and logo, the Tg500 was badged as an FMR.[1]

“Tg” unofficially stood for Tiger.[1] The “Tiger” name was claimed in Germany by Krupp, who used it on one of their trucks.[3] There was also a Panhard Dyna Z Tiger at the same time.

Thank you Boblog and Nicho. At first glance it looks like a Triumph GT6 but then it resolves and looks so much more balanced and neat. Wonderful car.

Forever Classic Cars
December 16 at 12:32 PM

Once in a while, we have to post a foreign-made automobile.
This one-of-a-kind was owned by actress Diana Dors.

Anthony Delia
Diana Dors purchased this 1949 Delahaye Type 175 Roadster very early in her acting career when she was just 17 years old! She paid $13,904.00 for the roadster (equivalent to $150,755.00 today) before she’d even passed her driving test! The car was sold at auction in 2011 for $3,090,620.00 (equivalent to $3,575,498.00 today). Diana Dors made a lot of money early on because she was considered to be Britain’s answer to Marilyn Monroe despite the fact that she looked more like Jayne Mansfield… either way… she was a blonde bombshell!

Lovely all around!

F40

“The F40 was built to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary. A very fast berlinetta designed by Pininfarina, it was built mainly from composites. Its sophisticated high-performance, turbo-charged running gear combined with a first class chassis gave it the kind of great dynamic prowess that was close to that of a racing car.”
www.ferrari.com

The car, known internally as the Type F120, was engineered by Nicola Materazzi.

ETA: I knew I should have looked this one up!

This BMW 507 Restomod features S62 V8 in beautiful renderings

www.bmwblog.com › Models › Concepts

The BMW 507. What hasn’t been said about it already? It’s probably one of the most beautiful cars ever made. At the same time, it was so revolutionary back in the day that it nearly bankrupt BMW. It was a bet against all odds and even though it was meant to be a proper rival for the Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, its high price tag made it a flop back in the day. A flop that would lead to less than 250 cars being made, turning them all, over time, into proper collector’s items.

Read the rest!

Spectacular!

unknown car

No one seems to know exactly what this car is. Do you know? Do tell!

The most common guess is that it is a Kellison kit car, but if it is, it is very highly modified in many ways. Others disagree, noting evidence for a Jaguar rear end.

Most also point out just how hard it would be to see out of it… assuming that one could even get in the thing!

I think it’s neat looking… and I do want to know what it is!

 

Mercury Cougar Trans Am

Cougars are cool. Always loved them, right from the start. The styling just does something to me as it does with so many beloved classics.

My cousin Rick had one when I was a kid and they were new. I loved it, not least because it had the 390 in it, Cougar Eliminator, eh, but, sadly, I never got a ride in it, or even sat in it. Too busy, I guess. Sigh.

They didn’t do much on the circuit, if I remember correctly, but it was cool seeing them out there dicing it up.

Peace
