Motorama at Meadow Brook

1955 Buick Wildcat at Meadow Brook
Among the many beautiful cars at this year’s Concours d’Elegance at Meadow Brook will be four one-of-a-kind concept cars from the collection of Joe Bortz. These cars were some of the most popular spectacles at General Motor’s Motorama auto shows during the 1950s (youtube). It will be the first time these four cars have been seen together with the 1955 Chevrolet Biscayne in restored show condition in over 50 years. The main photo shows the 1955 Buick Wildcat. Make a note of the date… it’s Sunday, July 25th - The last Sunday in July!

Old Workhorses Never Die

fFBW 1960
Some twenty years ago we spotted this workhorse somewhere in Switzerland. We had never seen it before and to be honest we have never seen one since. Which isn’t strange as it’s an FBW, made in Switzerland. FBW stands for Franz Brozincevic Wetzikon who started building trucks as early as 1910. We think this one dates from the 1960’s. Maybe someone from the FBW club can bring us up-to-date?

The Lubra Mystery (UPDATE: Since 1920)

Lubra Motor Oil
Many years ago we saw this poster hanging on a garage wall and were immediatelely intrigued. No, not what you think… we wondered about the make Lubra as we had never heard of this oil company. And the strange thing is that the text on the poster is in Italian, but the two girls are driving what looks like an American car of the late 1940s. Can you tell us more about Lubra Motor Oils?

Who is the Real Movie Star?

Lancia - Signora del Vento
Yesterday saw the start of the yearly Film Festival of Cannes. Always a good place to be for spotting glamorous starlets and glorious automobiles. Also present at the festival is Lancia who pampers its VIP guests aboard the “Signora del Vento”, a luxurious sailing vessel built in 1962. And now you wonder why Lancia sponsors this film festival? Then check the Internet Movie Cars Data Base how many Lancia’s were actually the real movie stars.
