Post 5,719 is labeled as "F-15AB". It is a Polish Air Force Mig-29. Not sure of the exact model, but not an Eagle.
Air Force guy, here, although foreign aircraft are not my forte.

Post 5644. It's a British Electric Lighting. At one time it held the speed to altitude record. It could accelerate going vertical.

Post 5660. What is it?

That looks like a Citroen 2CV (Deux Chevaux) with, well, modifications...

Strange little car. Kind of a French VW; affordable for the masses and so on. Air cooled two-banger up front, parts of the body were originally made of plywood. There were even truck and van versions.

All said, a resounding success: massively popular, cult following, etc. Introduced in the late 40s and produced into the 90s, I believe.

Here's a stocker... Pic says 1957, but it looked about the same throughout its life.

It was, Lots of nice cars.

I talked to the TD guy for a while, it's the first show he has taken it to. He did all the restoration work himself.

I loved seeing the Dastun 1600 and the Honda S800! very rare.

Oh yeah, definitely unusual. There was a 1600 or a 2000 way out in the country under a shelter down here. Last time I was out that way, I didn't notice it. A barn find of sorts. I've seen an S800 coupe or two at vintage races, but never in the wild.

I didn't get the chance to talk to the owners of the S800, they were a younger couple. It's nice to see the someone under 60 take an interest in a 1960's classic!

I like the Andover MA CnC, lots of American muscle, a few supercars, but always some rare gems.

I love ultra modern design. My worst nightmare would be living in a colonial house with large white columns out front and a cluttered interior that looks like the entry of a Cracker Barrel restaurant.

Sound Like my Mrs. She would much prefer to live in a home with glass floors, ceilings and walls. Ultra clean lines and no clutter, decorations or nick nacks.....
Wish I had a photo of her appartment in Odesa. Italian marble floors and walls. Ultra modern and sleek.
