Same car years later ? Faded paint and lost its windshield wipers.

They both have a red bumper sticker(maybe AAA) in the same location and the license plate matches so maybe...
Great pics you post Stale air...

Just had a thought....it is more than likely the same car. I bet that stuff all over the hood, is rail dust, aka fallout.
Ive worked for FCA since 94, and started out as a detailer. We would get new vehicles in and the first thing I would do would be to apply "fallout" remover to each vehicle to get the rail dust off of it before putting them on the lot.

Looks like someone holding a white roof rack to the right next to all the luggage. The rack either just came off or is about to go on.

The big-ass grille badge on the Borgward reminds me of the big-ass badges on new Infinitis and Acuras...

Dumb, but quick question from a guy who has never lived in a snowy area and only used chains a few times. Chains on the front tires of a rear wheel drive car? Do they help in steering?
