1963 Chrysler Turbine Car body by Ghia
(Aug 10, 2010)
Back in 1963, when I was just nine years old, one of the 50 or so Chrysler Ghia Turbine Cars built to test the practicality of gas turbine engines in passenger cars, passed through our neighborhood. Ever since then I have been fascinated by what many people call the "Bronze Blowtorch." Designed by Elwood P. Engel, who also designed the 1961 Ford Thunderbird and 1961 Lincoln Continental, he was responsible for the exterior and interior design of this landmark car. Forty-two years after my first encounter with the Chrysler Turbine car, I was able to drive one of the few remaining examples thanks to friends at Chrysler and the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. A similar car, painted in white, starred in the 1964 James Darren movie "The Lively Set" and it's a trip seeing it race through Death Valley, where every summer I stalk pre-production prototypes for the Automotive Traveler image gallery. The best source on the web for information on the Chrysler Turbine Car program can be found at Mark Olsen's excellent website at www.turbinecar.com/introduction.htm All images copyright 2010 by Richard Truesdell and automotivetraveler.com, all rights reserved.

1965 Mercedes-Benz 300SE long wheelbase sedan
(Jan 14, 2015)
One of the great things about being an automotive journalist is the opportunity to photograph some very interesting cars as well as getting to know their owners. And few are as interesting as Mercedes-Benz enthusiast Bob Gunthorp.

Bob owns a vintage Mercedes-Benz parts company Onager based in Chula Vista, California. And Bob owns a number of special body Mercedes-Benzes that include funeral cars and several station wagons that predate factory-offered versions such as his Binz-bodied 1963 190.

What makes Bob so special is that he restores his cars to a high level yet not so high that they can't be driven. In fact, Bob drove this car, a long wheelbase 1965 300SE from Chula Vista, near the US-Mexican border to Monterey last August where it finished second-in-class at Legends of the Autobahn, losing first place only by virtue that his clock ran fast. It didn't phase Bob in the least. "Trailer Queen" is not a word in Bob's vocabulary, something that I think should be celebrated.

These photos are not from a formal, magazine photo shoot as they lack the car-to-car tracking shots that I usually take. They were taken right after a seeing Bob at a Secret Car Show on a Saturday morning. I'm looking forward to shooting the car under better conditions, as I did with his ex-Somoza 1965 220SEb, a very similar Fintail. Here's the photos of that car, taken in San Diego's Balboa Park.
