Great pictures. I especially enjoyed the one with the Saab 96 in it. Two of my favorite cars.

Thanks for sharing those photos.

I have never seen a 47 Champion two toned like that.

What is the car behind the 53 Champion coupe?

It looks like this Moskvich

The car behind the Champion coupe appears to be an Opel Leonard.

Great looking photos. How much did you have to pay the two gorgeous models to pose with you??? Just kidding. Great pix.

That's a great bunch of history from over there, thanks for the pictures. [^] That 53 looks so perfect over there with it's styling. I cringed worrying about the others rolling into it on the water..:(;)

:) Great photos indeed! The one on the ferry is especially interesting.

Was the 1957 Silver Hawk a six? Those tires look awfully skinny, and the dog-dish hubcaps would be more commonly found on a six.

Again, great photos. Thanks for sharing. :DBP

Yes, It was a six in Akes Hawk, In beginning of 60`s there was three other Hawks in same town, two silver and one Golden Hawk, here is one of them. Silver hawk with 8 cyl.

:) Thanks, Jan. 'Easy to tell that '59 is a V-8, in that it has wheel opening moldings. I assume the two-tone was added by a subsequent owner. :DBP

What is the dark area on the roof near the rear window of the 1947 Champion?

Could be semaphores or "trafficators' as some call them. (Today we call them turnsignals, or blinkers.) Don't know if they were required then, but probably ordinarily would have been placed on the "B" pillar, but there is not much room for them there on the 4dr sedans. And no, the lower accesory fender ornaments shown did not light up.:(
