I.D.ing Cars from the Underside
Posted by: Jonathan Knapp ()

Al's posting on his saga of the lost steering arm got me to thinking...

Kudos to Mike Stillwell for correctly identifying my car from a picture of my right front suspension and brakes. Who else can identify someone else's car from pictures of the underside?

We could make a game of it! If you have pictures of the underside of someone else's car, post them and let's see if anyone can come up with the right owner. Of course, you can't post pictures of your own car. That would be too easy for us to guess. Also, you can't chime in if the pictures are of your own car.

Thanks Jonathan! Since I helped inspire the idea, here's an easy one for the group.

The color is a dead giveaway.

Related: I had a very nice restored (but totaled) '66 on my service pit and my almost as nice '66 right behind it on the same pit. I was swapping parts from the restored car to my car. Back and forth. Back and forth. Several times during the process I had to double check which car I was under because they were pretty much identical from the bottom! Truly boggled my mind.confused smiley

Yup! Good Job Matt. That is Rick's pic. I copied it from his FB page.
