Classic Cars in Hamburg - Mystery Blue.


*Update* Leslie's man told her it's an 1954 Oldsmobile. On further research (googling and looking at images!) it looks like he is right. And there is an interesting controversy surrounding this model. It was supposed to be released in 1955, but was mysteriously brought forward... Mystery blue indeed!

Not sure what this pretty thing is... but it is ADORABLE! The white-rimmed tyres are so cool! I saw it near Osdorf in Hamburg.

While doing some online research to (unsuccessfully) identify this car, I found a fun Flickr group where people have pooled images of classic cars. Worth a butchers*. 

This is part of my photography project: Classic Cars. I now carry my camera wherever I go and I will collect pictures of vintage cars that I see while out and about. They just make me happy.

  4. So nostalgic! Seeing that grandma car makes me remember classic films. And your list of vintage cars is worth commending! Have you seen a 50’s Cadillac in your area?

    1. I haven't got a photo of one. We've moved away from Hamburg now, but I'm still on the lookout!
