Anyone who are interested in truck with crane on the body, here I tried my best to identify as much as I can:

I thought this may be an interesting lift, but my cell phone came out wee bit blurry. But I managed to find this:

2016 JGL Lift X770AJ (I found the plate for this lift):

It's said, that two classic cars were destroyed, but there's only one to see:
https://www1.wdr.de/nachrichten/rheinland/brand-siegburg-reportage-100.html

Some US-car from the early 50ies.

About the incident: a fire directly nearby the ICE railway line Cologne-Frankfurt Airport, probably caused by sparks. Or broken glass. Or a cigarette.

In Germany we have unusual drought and heat up to 40 degrees since some weeks.

I believe this is 1955 Ford.

I see you found Sport Coupe body style. Too bad I can't tell if this is V8 engine or not due to missing badge at the boot.

Oops, didn't look at the license plate frame. :whistle:

I saw a white 1981-85 Chevrolet Impala sedan merging onto I-215 north this afternoon. It had its original blue/yellow CA license plates too. It was a bit beat up and missing a couple of hubcaps but hey, it was being driven. Usually you only see the 1986-90 Caprices, never the earlier Impalas. Wish I got a pic of it.

Today I saw this mock "LAPD" AU Falcon, for upcoming Paul Hogan comedy film "The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee" (US/AU co-production):

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8560172/

I'm assuming that it's going to be filmed entirely in Australia. The car had a fake steering wheel on the left side. The paint job appeared to be very cheaply done when looking at it close up. It had phony CA plates on it, which they took off and replaced with Victorian plates after the filming was over.

I'm back!

Recently cleaned up my iPhotos, and was on the lookout for the rarest, most unusual car I could find (that I haven't posted yet) Trying to not post cars that were common then and rare now, which is kinda hard - I'd post tons of 80s and 90s Mitsubishis, Toyotas, Kias, Mazdas and Hyundais here otherwise.

These were already a very slow seller when they were, I don't ever recall seeing one on the road here:
https://i.imgur.com/ow0QPXU.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/dan8CE1.jpg
Pictures taken in October 2010, when there were still a lot of 80s and 90s cars on German roads.

Only six of these on the site...
https://imgur.com/aqpQVBv.jpg

Don't know about the US, but in Germany this whale is extinct:
https://i.imgur.com/3cmlPlq.jpg

Yes, they had a short market presence here, but compared to Hyundai and Kia they were absolute junk:
https://i.imgur.com/WBpkygs.jpg

...and a little something for tonkatracker:
https://i.imgur.com/JaObKck.jpg
The three above pictures were taken in July 2011.

Berlin taxis are usually E-Classes or Tourans, but sometimes...
https://i.imgur.com/ugZJ1XL.jpg
On the airport, on my way to Tallinn I even saw a big 80s FWD Caddy as a taxi! Didn't photograph it though.
Picture taken in June 2015.

[...]Chevrolet - I can't remember what the emblem on it showed
https://i.imgur.com/7DYvfvnm.jpg

Apparently a short bed, meaning a ½-ton model. The emblem should then be 3100. 1951 only model, due to the 1947-51 door handle and the 1951+ door vent window.

[...]Chevrolet Suburban (year range?)

@rjluna2: The vertical black parts in the egg-crate grille could also indicate a 1970 model :wink:
