Took lots of photos at our local Canada Day parade today. I thought I'd share the ones I took of old cars.

@Rockhead,
Okay, thanks! I wasn't 100% sure if it was a 3-wheeled car or not, but I think you're right.

Neat one, eh?

@Reyn,
the more I look at it, it may not be an Isetta.

if it is, it's an old one...

Really? Hmm, doesn't appear to be similar?

Hey, thanks for the videos of the other 3-wheelers! Neato! Very Happy

If the ninth one or so down was black, it would look like our family car, when I was in the sixth grade. It's a red Ford. Anyway, this looks like it was taken at a Tomball Christmas parade, using pretty much the same cars.

@Reyn,

maybe it's a Messerschmitt KR200.

@Reyn,
I'm going to call hamburgboy over here - he might recognize the mystery vehicle.

Hi Ed!

The red car with the curved top? Nice!

I always enjoy the old cars. Later on this year, there will be an old car show in town. I'll take pics! Very Happy

You may have seen this picture before. It was our family car when I was six years old.

@edgarblythe,
Ah, yes, I do remember that shot!

That's a Ford?
