(PICS) New additions to the fleet... by Lloyd Mecca #25928
Gotta luv these Cadillacs! But never saw shiny paint on a staff car before. Hmm... (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1
Well, it is in a museum, so until you know their reason... (EOM) by Lloyd Mecca #25928.1.1
PIC--Apparently you weren't in the service. Generals are vain. Note Patton and chrome bumpers. by Frank Racibozynski #25928.1.2
It's about paint, not chrome. I'm no expert on WW II "regulation paint" but I thought all vehicles.. by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1
From historical photos I have seen, it would appear the paint by Lloyd Mecca #25928.1.2.1.1
Calm down Llyod, relax. I just asked a question about shiny paint. Perhaps someone knows the answer. by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.1.1
I'm wondering if the museum car was not matte because it was pre-1941 by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1
And now I'm seeing BMWs and Range Rovers in flat and they're brand new (EOM) by John Quilter #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1
Yes.....this is something I will NEVER understand. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1
It's called ready made patina! (EOM) by John Quilter #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.1
It's called a trend... LOL. Who knows what will be next; very hard to predict. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1
I'll never understand flat paint on new cars either. (EOM) by Curtis Parisi #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.2
Not sure just how you treat it either. Special wax? No wax ever? Flat wax?? (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.1
It's about 4-stars having non-reg privleges--chrome, paint, pearl handle Colt revolvers, etc. Not GI (EOM) by Frank Racibozynski #25928.1.2.1.2
Then there was one general who used (briefly) a shiny metallic blue Mercedes! by Harvey Goranson #25928.1.2.1.2.1
Was that by chance a seized Mercedes ? (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1
No, it ran quite well. :) (EOM) by John Kuvakas #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1

Well if it was a war seizure he got it for the Reich price. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3
Ubercan stupid buut awkenstein funeek! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3.1
You really got me with that one Jack! LOL (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3.2
Es ist eine dumme Aussage und nicht sehr lustig; aber ich bin kein Raketenwissenschaftler... :-) (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3.2.1
Harvey, that's a great model! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.2.1.2
Very nice additions indeed Lloyd ! They're great ! (EOM) by Jean Philippe Sergent #25928.2
Nice additions. I like the Patton Cadillac. It is good to know that they restored the car by John Merritt #25928.3
I always thought the wrecked Patton car was a later model ??? (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.3.1
That would explain the the shiny paint John. Thanks. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.3.2
Its odd ....the only reason this car survived despite being totaled is because Patton was killed. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.3.3
Yes... sadly. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.3.3.1
