Coffee Brake: Name All The Wrecks

Today's Coffee Brake came as an idea and zip from Zach Z -- name all the carcasses in the photos in this craigslist posting.


 What are those truck bed toppers balanced on those poor roadsters?

  1. 5th nose poking out in the front row looks like a '69 Cortina.

    1. I think the second one is a Fiat 124 Convertible.

    2. The second one (from the left) is also an MGB

  4. I think the pick-up toppers are to keep the rain out of the roadsters.

  5. Looking at the other pictures that are in the ad, it looks like a late '50s MG Magnette makes an appearance parked in front of a TR3, which looks like it 'might be' parked next to an early XJ6

    1. Don't think the early XJ6es had a chromed waistline...

    2. I think you're right. I thought those were pin stripes, but then realize that the XJ's pinstripes were usually along the body crease just below the door handle, rather than above. Wonder what it is.

    3. Was going to say 420G but door handles all wrong

    4. Also a wagon in front of the black sedan, maybe an Herald estate?

  6. Saw the Cortina and remembered this old Ford ad from back in the day. WOW

    (sorry it's a tick wider than 400 px but it could have rendered the copy illegible)

  7. Pic 3 shows a TR250 next to the MGB. I refuse to call a car with a production run of 8k "rare" but its probably the most uncommon car in that lot
