    Thanks Tony, just downloaded them successfully, though I don't know yet what I will do with them. My printer at work choked at the size.

    Does Chris have any details about when this photo was taken (nothing in the book) or what it represents. Based on clues in the picture I am guessing early 82 perhaps. The one frame number semi-visible (6245 or 8245) isn't listed on txdmc yet, but the flat hoods and exhaust tips would point to an 82 car. Are they cars taken off the assembly line for fixing? (the flapper wheels may indicate that)

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    I think Chris just bought a massive collection of negatives and photos. I don't think there were many details, but I will certainly ask!

    Barrie Wills and I talked about this photo when it appeared on Facebook. I believe the VIN on the frame is actually 10245 and the timeframe is December of 1981. Per Barrie, production was still going at the 80 cars per day rate, which is why some cars are on roll-around carts and others on Tellus carriers - they didn't have enough of the latter at that time.
