Suicide doors, at the curb

Seen within a couple of hours in downtown Portland, two of the many vintage vehicles in daily use here in Portland.

I think that first car belongs to the Green Hornet. OMG I am getting old.

Wow! I think I can honestly say that there are no old Continetals in Powell River! Love 'em, these pics. Suicide doors you just don't see anymore - too bad you didn't get a shot of one open. :D

Absolutely a thing of beauty. I wonder if there is a rental company that specializes in classic cars. That would make a tour of PDX way more fun.

Great finds. Did you notice the contrast in the second photo? One of the largest cars on the road and across the street one of the smallest.
