Copies from Japan

Post by JPP » November 8th, 2014, 2:09 pm

Turns out Henry went to Japan to built a plant in 1932, which lasted till 1945 for obvious reasons. I just went to Nissan Car museum and was taken by the striking resemblance to the Ford Motor and Car, al be it smaller.

Strangely I saw a '32 Dotson roadster years ago in a storage shed. It looked very simuler to the above one. Looked very simuler to a model A except appeared smaller. I took a picture of it but have no idea of where that picture is. You would never believe where that vehicle was :?: :) It was located In a shead at the Ponderousa Where they filmed "Banana" on Lake Tahoe Near the ranch house :) Shelby, Louisiana.

If you watch that film you will see all the AA's that were built there , most of them were built using the stainless steel radiator shells .
