RE: Back of the shed
LOL... yeah, the girth gives it away -(there's a pun here) it is indeed American - and it was developed right about the same time (slightly ahead actually) of the VW...

An interesting aside -- I didn't get a good picture - but the headliner is wicker....

Yeah - wicker -- like the stuff they make baskets and stuff out of....

A weird thing, for sure...

RE: Back of the shed
Never seen a wicker head lining before. I'm liking it more and more,

I assume the 'girth' remark is a clever clue.

It is......

A hint -- the garage in question is the Gilmore Car Museum in Richland Mi.
They have some of the nicest - and weirdest rides you've ever seen.

VERY Good..... The Gilmore Museum has two of them.... Very odd vehicle.

I can't help but think with the whacky styling- that they could sell a bunch of those today...

I'm sure they would sell if they could be made the same. BUT by the time they had all the modifications to comply with modern safety and emission standards the spirit of them would be lost and they would just be another un-attractive box on wheels.

I was talking about it with my SO when we toured the museum -- and we were both convinced that if certain vehicles were made to look exactly as originally produced - but built to modern standards (emissions, suspension, drivetrain, safety features) they would sell like crazy...

Who wouldn't want a 2016 Nash Metropolitan convertible???

RE: Back of the shed
Time for a new one.....

Anyone know what this is??

Hint -- it's got what today is considered an offensive name -- and I make no apologies for that....

It's a specialized tool -- I had to build.... Snap-On, Craftsman or Kent-Moore don't make one.....

It looks to be some kind of a jig. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
