* Bob Gurr previously sent us several of his photos from old L.A. area used car dealerships, so we were pleased to see Dean’s Garage’s quick profile on Gurr, the designer and Disney Imagineer, this week. Some of those designs look like something somebody with metalshaping talent could bring to life rather easily.
* In the ongoing COE thread on the H.A.M.B., LowKat recently posted a group of photos depicting some White COEs doing things you’d never expect a White COE to do. No context, so we’re assuming this was some sort of demonstration of the capabilities of the trucks, perhaps at their introduction?
* The Bohn illustrations that we posted last week prompted a BigLorryBlog reader to send in photos of a very unusual Perth, Australia-based semi-trailer bus, which looks similar to the plywood bus we posted a few months ago.
* Last week’s link to the Brazilian Ford trucks prompted Gene Herman to forward me this link to an excellent history on IKA, including not only Kaiser’s familiar automobiles and Jeeps, but also some interesting Kaiser funeral cars seen only in Argentina.
* Finally, yet another followup to last week’s link to the Brazilian Fords, this one from Blog dos Carros Antigos themselves, featuring the above F-1-based woodie station wagon and a couple Ford-built buses.
* Oh, one more. While prepping their story on the history of Mercury, CNN asked us if we had a good pic of a ‘49 Merc lead sled. Of course, we had this great action shot from our last cruise night to share with them.
