Just to balance up the odd non-pornographic post here . . .
I recently visited Alaska’s 2nd largest city of Fairbanks, about 350 miles north of the largest city of Anchorage. For context, greater Fairbanks is about 80,000 people located just a bit south of the Arctic Circle. There is an amazing antique car museum I visited. The vehicle collection is impressive on its own and even more so given the isolated and remote location. Here are some cars I really liked.
A 1936 Packard Twelve convertible touring. There were 682 cars produced and the cost at the time was $5050.
1933 Hupmobile Series K-321 Victoria (7318 produced and only 7 known to exist). Original price of $1060.
1930 Packard Deluxe Eight Roadster. 1789 cars made and cost $4585.
Here’s a couple more pictures I took at the Fairbanks museum. You can find more information at their website:
1933 Auburn 12-161A Speedster. 25 produced.
1932 Cadillac Imperial Limousine by Fleetwood. 300 produced and could have been yours in the day for $5445.
Wasn’t there a depression during the 1930s?
Great pictures and wonderful cars, and as you say not in a location you would expect. Just one point that Cord looks suspiciously like a Packard to me.
I particularly like the Auburn.
Good catch. It is a 1930 Packard Roadster. Thanks for identifying my mislabeling. I corrected the post above.
Here’s the Cord...
1931 Cord L-29 Cabriolet (1243 produced and sold for $2495)
Famous in London
Yes, but let's get back to porn! And for those who know the subject, I'm sure this Colour Climax will be welcome:
Funny thing is, their frames are all shades of the same colors!
Anyone has spare change?

How's this for a bit of visual stimulation - and, imagine the noise. But you don't just have to imagine it: https://petrolicious.com/films/1989-ferrari-f40-my-twin-turbocharged-lucky-charm
If I ever suddenly came into a large sum of money the first thing I would do would be to find an F40.
That is THE car for me.
Nothing else really does it for me like an F40 does.
My eldest is the same - he was six when it emerged and during its years in production he started karting and accompanied me on many automotive adventures when I was working for Alfa Romeo. Throughout all that time he always rated it Number One, (though he did quite like being driven in SZs). So I've always wanted to surprise him with one on a birthday, but funds have been slightly insufficient so far!
I was probably around 6 the first time I saw one. So this would have been around 1994 or so.
My family and I used to travel into the "country" to cut down a Christmas tree every year.
So here we are in the middle of nowhere and an F40 comes SCREAMING past us down a long, straight road. And then a few min later coming back at us in the opposite direction.
To this day it is still the only one I have seen in action. Seen a few parked at shows here and there but never being driven like the first one I ever saw.
I'll never forget it.
A gentleman brought an F-40 to a track day at Lime Rock back in the 90's. He was just getting the sense of the car's performance on the track for the first time, and he was rightly taking it slow and easy on a cool, damp day. We were both slotted in an upper run group at the time. I was driving an '85 Euro BMW M635 CSi, but I'll never forget getting a wave-by from an F40.
The primal, analog nature of the F40 still rocks me.
I am going to go look at a 2.0 914 today. Never really been a fan but if the car is even decently sorted it will be too good of a deal to pass up.
Too bad it is not a funky color...black is probably my least favorite car color.
