My first thought was Turner but I don't recall them having dual taillights, nor did the spare tire stick out the back. So I'm moving to Honda, maybe a 500 or somesuch from the 60's.

First of all; thank you for responding. While you took your time off, Arra; I struggled to keep this subject alive.

I think its a 3 part answer.
We have tons of younger people on here that to put it plainly perhaps are just not into
older cars, and don't care.

Another thought I had is some much of society is so instant oriented, that not seeing
instant responses makes it boring.

Last thought is the HONOR system on this post to shoot from the hip, and not cheat
(google) an answer.... and some people's pride won't allow them a wrong guess
to be shone to other people!

wdb: Your guess is closest, sorry Arra! Arra may have more distress with this than
others...(that's a clue)

Also a clue is that the trailer is not average size; it was made to fit the car!

Well it's not an S600/800 (tail is all wrong) but if it's close, I'll guess Datsun. They made a roadster like that, but I don't remember seeing a name on them, it just had "1600" on the trunk.

What is confusing me is the VW license plate frame. It appears to have an inline four up front, so that really rules out VW of that era, especially since it is RHD.

darcane: very astute thinking; yes it is somewhat like a Datsun roadster, but no.

Your Honda thoughts are in a warm direction, rather than cold!
