I love the array of cars parked along the street. What is the red sporty one in front of Coffee Dan's?
It looks like a Triumph TR3 to me. There are plenty of other angles at the link below.

Yup. Definitely a TR3. The Coffee Dan's car has the standard wire wheels instead of the somewhat odd spoked ones in your picture.

When I used to flag corners for SCCA races we hated those things. They had a real tendency to roll over and shed hoods, doors, and trunk lids.

Cheers,

Earl

It was the only image I could find in the right color combination and with the right roof design. I think the car in my picture has the popular Minilite rally wheels which appeared on many cars of the '60s and '70s.

With or without spoked rims, from a distance TR3s are quite similar to TR2s.


TR2

Here's an interesting tid-bit about Aldo's Coffee Shop.

It's where Cher first met Sonny.

Aldo's is an empty lot now.



Martin Pal, yes, that's the photo. Thanks buddy.

I have no idea why they used the devil in their signs. That may have turned off some. They should have used God. A heavenly drink would sell better than a hellish one.
