Dirty Girls (via ned)

Wow. What a perfect little time capsule. I forgot what it was like to be a 13 year old before the internet really existed, when the closest thing to having a tumblr was making VHS camcorder videos and copy machine zines.

i can’t believe this was that long ago …

International Harvester Scout (1960-71)

Model year ID on this one is tough, with a grille from the later 800 models, but roof mounted wiper setup from the earlier 80. Regardless, there’s something great about an orange Binder. 

This one is especially nice, with it’s unique khaki TravelTop and wheels.

 A great California car seen on my recent trip to Los Angeles

this binder is packed with oddities and somewhat strange choices, but she’s still a gem.

Volvo PV 445 Duett (1953-69, this is a ‘57)

While yesterday’s PV 444 is one way to maintain a classic, I’ll take patina over perfection any day. Though rust is never a good thing, this car has some amazing character.  There are so many great details on this workhorse, my most favorite has to be the vintage University of Oregon Parking sticker affixed to the rear bumper.  

The Duett was meant to be just that-dual purpose.  It’s both a load hauler and a (moderatley) comfortable passenger car, and probably the only Volvo passenger car to sport a ladder frame.

Both yesterdays and todays posts are owned and maintained by the same family, and if you’d like to see more pictures check out their Flickr page for some great shots:

International Harvester Travelall (1953-75, this is a ‘62-68)

This is a seriously lowered Travelall done in classic rat rod style.  Matte black exterior with hand painted pinstripes and enameled wheels make this a one classic I am not sad to see altered from its original condition.

Seen in SE Portland

how have i missed this kindred ‘binder running around town?
