Thanks, I will add those photos.

Any idea on which Continental Motors?
This is a common name used for several dealer across the USA over time.

Edit: I found that photo here:

but there's no Continental Motors in the listings for Illinois

Yikes! Is that a drop tank or a bomb? I really hope the car was parked on the tarmac and was hit by a slow rolling plane. The other way around would leave a lot of mung in the car.

looks like a starfighter port wing tank to me -maybe from the plane in the background. the germans called them 'the widowmaker' and it seems that danger wasn't confined to the air!
