I grew up with a 1931 chevrolet, and I can tell you that this car is NOT one.

The car appears to be fairly small, thus it is unlikely that it is American. This peculiar louver arrangement on the sides of the bonnet and the stepped radiator grille must give some hint.

probably a French car (the prison island was located in French Guyana...)

LOL - Americans are talking about high gas prices :D - I am paying for 1 litre of gas about 1,20 USD :(

explorer4x4

2006-03-24 20:35

1 gallon of gas in America costs $3.00! I do not call that cheap. And if Americans learn anything from this, they'll start driving PT Cruisers, Chevy Eveos and Ford Escape Hybrids.
I haven't learned anything because I still want a Ford Explorer.

wickey >> here 1 litre is 1.2 EUR, which is even more :(

explorer4x4 >> yes, prices are quite higher than before, that makes the litre at 0.79 USD if I am correct. Previously the difference between USA and Europe was bigger.

But in Venezuela the litre is at 0.03 USD :D

Well, I still want an Explorer. And if gas prices go way out of control, I'd settle for a Ford Escape Hybrid Limited instead. But I still love the Explorer. And Escapes are nice too, but I need the room. Escapes are the best SUV when it comes to gas. ;)

Just making a point, until you get out of college and have a high paying job what you really need is something like an old MG. Cheap to drive and in addition, it will attract more girls than an exlorer ;)

Of course. Thats why I am thinking of getting an older Explorer :D And so far I am not worried about attracting girls.

But still, I like Explorers. Perfect size for me and my two dogs. The body style I want is an SUV, they look decent looking, they are made by my favorite make and they are good on and off road.

Here in Germany, the gallon currently is at $ 5.81- ("Super", unleaded, 95+ octanes). More than 70% of this are taxes. Diesel is around $ 5.09- per gallon. Converted from the price per litre.

Tax here is from € ~5 to ~25 per 100 cm³ cubic capacity (about 6 to 30 US$ per 6.1 cu in), depending on how polluting the vehicle is - Euro 4 to no catalyzer. Add narrower roads and cities, and perhaps you get a feeling why Europeans prefer shopping baskets on wheels with lawnmower engines. :D
To come back to the theme: No clue, which make the oldtimer is.

I got a car! Not a Explorer though. It is a 1989 Ford Tempo AWD with power locks and windows, Ford Premium Sound System with 6 speakers, AWD, Firestone tires, power seat belts and interior wood trim and exterior chrome molding. It is grey. My Grandpa gave it to me after I fixed it up. I can not drive it off of his property (He has a three mile road) intill I am 14 when I can get a permit. Less then a year... It needs to get a new battery, insurance, registration, I need to clean out the engine coolent and oil tank and I want to wax it down. It has been sitting for almost 7 years. And I can turn the key over to ACC (or accessory) but I can't start it yet.

I despise SUVs. They are huge and unpractical. They are the reason why gas prices are going up. They are the reason why it scares me to drive. I'd rather have a Caprice or LTD station wagon. It has more room, get better gas mileage, and has a greater "cool" factor than any SUV.


Anyways, I think that car in the screen capture kind of looks like a 1930 Ford Model A.

Lincoln Navigators, Cadillac Escalades and Chevrolet TrailBlazers are the essence of cool. And What if you've got a family of 9 (like my cousins family) and you live in Alaska 9like they do) what are you going to do? Get a Subaru Outback? A Ford Crown Victoria? A Ford Econoline with its tall and unsteady frame driving the back roads of one of the most un-civilized terrain in the U.S.? I don't think so (They drive a Chevy Suburban). SUVs are a neccesary part of life in the car-world) The Ford Escape Hybrid has almost the same mileage as a VW Beatle. They aren't the reason gas prices are soaring, it is the fact America won't except ethanol. And SUVs are the same as a pickup except instead of a bed, they have more seats. Example: Ford Ranger>Ford Explorer, Ford F-150>Ford Expedition, Ford F-350>Ford Excursion. And I would have to say that SUVs are cooler then wagons.

SUVs seem to be the tailfins of the early 21st century. A fad that will pass as quick as it came. At about USD 6.00 per US-Gallon for petrol here in England, I fill up my 76 Caddy Coupe DeVille and drive it just because I can. Now, does anybody know what this here car is?

A clue could be Chenard & Walcker, just from the shape of the radiator.

I looked for Chenard & Walcker and all the old ones seem to have an oval radiator and the newer ones have louvers in the side of the bonnet. Still at a loss.

Ya maybe, but here in America, I just see them getting more popular. The 2006 Ford Escape topped the U.S. popularity chart. And I think it will be hard to loose the SUV.

Everyone seems to think Alaskans ride on moose and travel by dog sleds. Ahhhh1 Not true at all. Dog sleding (or as the lower 48s like to call it, mushing) is a hobby nowadays. And in Alaska it is a rare thing to see anything but Fords, GMs and Chryslers. And all we really drive are Pickups and SUVs. I know 5 familys who drive Chevrolet Suburbans/GMC Yukons.

Anyone want to confirm my suspicions of it being a 1930s Ford or Lincoln?


As for the SUVs, I can see it being a necessity in the wilderness, but most of the people in the US us it as an urban assult vehicle and just use it to drive to their suburan homes to the store and pick up their 2.5 kids and whatever. It pisses me off when I go to Wal-Mart and park next to a Civic and then come out and some huge Suburban or Excursion is parked where the Civic was and then I hope some jerk isn't barreling down the aisle ready to slam into me (I've had a few close ones before). It also ticks me off when I'm travelling down the interstate behind these beasts and can't see around them. I almost ran into a dead dear in the road because this SUV in front of me swerved and suddenly revealed why. It also doesn't pay to be in front of them either. Their headlights are eye level with my rearviews so I'm constantly blinded in all three mirrors.

explorer4x4

2006-03-28 08:10

Ya I can see where that would be extremely irratating. and i guess I will find out when I drive my Tempo. But I can't see where they can be worse then trucks, cargo and passenger vans. And I do hate Suburbans, Land Cruisers and Excurions because they are way to big. But Explorers, Blazers, Trooper IIs and Escapes are all of decent size. The 94 Explorers seat five and thats about the number of seats I'd like and I also like having the rear corgo space and I find station wagons to short. But everyone has different needs and need different cars.

I think it's just a matter of personal taste. I think SUVs suck since I like cars. Others seem to find it quite appealing to pay the petrol bill for pulling up at the local shops with their Chelsey-Tractor and put up with atrocious road holding. And for Alaska, if I lived up there, I would probably do whatever I can to speed up global warming, too. There is certainly no rational reason to buy a SUV, but so there isn't one for owning a 76 Caddy, four Ford Granadas and being on the lookout for yet another car. Let's enjoy this without arguments as long as we can drive what we want.
