Old pictures IV

Can’t mistake this one, Avro Anson. I’m certain that, just like with the other pics, there is a wealth of info in the markings etc.

Easy one here, Corsair F4U right?  Fleet Air Arm markings right?

Old pictures II

I’m having a brainstone with this one. Interwar British biplane right? I’m sure I’ve seen a pic of it before but I’m drawing a blank.

In the foreground, that nose…can’t be can it?

Old pictures I

Got a couple of old pics of airplanes. Not completely sure of the identity of some of them, I’ll make a guess and I hope I can be confirmed or corrected.

This one I’m guessing is a Short Singapore, Wikipedia entry


Wikipedia pic follows, pretty close match or not?

Vanagon – my van and another van

The other van has 18″ rims, nice big brakes up front ( and they do have a great pedal feel ), Go Westy 2.4 wbx. And it has a list of repairs needed.

COE Mack truck W71

Might see the owner in the next day or so and I can get some info.

Update, talked to owner. 

(Yes I missed the badge on the driver’s side)

It’s a W-71. Somewhat rare, certainly rare here on the island. This one came off a farm, has the extended cab for sleeper. Cab interior pretty rough but restorable.

Vanagon – sightings from Dugi OtokĀ 

More from Simon in Croatia. 

It’s sometimes has to be done,  but I hate so much stuff hanging on the rear.


Factory hightop with the extended height sliding door.


Syncro tintop. Well, I think it’s a Syncro. Hey Simon, clean the windscreen.
