What's the date and story here. Front bike is late 40's early 50's Schwinn? but a sub in the street in Oakland?
JAP SUBMARINE DRAWS LARGE CROWDS: Curbs and sidewalks along the parade route were well crowded Saturday afternoon as thousands of Ann Arborites turned out for a firsthand glimpse of the two-man Japanese submarine captured at Pearl Harbor. A lot of youngsters, afoot and on bicycles, followed the sub along its route. The sub visited Ann Arbor on its nationwide War Bond tour, being stationed opposite the courthouse for display purposes after the parade. Although originally scheduled to leave for Adrian at 10 o'clock, it stayed over night, leaving yesterday morning. For the parade the submarine was tilted somewhat on its side, as shown in the above picture, so as to provide clearance for the conning tower under wires. Picture was taken in July 1943.

Man that is one cool old bike hauler. I saw one of these double door type 2's on the pickers last nite that sat in a guy's shed for 10+ years and sold for $10,000.oo with no motor or trans. So how many bikes can you haul? Ride ON. Razin.

Love the old shelby. And your old split window beetles are way cool too. So what years are they? My dad has a 55 ford f-100 pick up. My brother has it now sincehe died on my birth day last year, and i'll hopefully get it when it's all settled in probate. Will make a pretty cool bike hauler when it's done. Ride On. Razin.

The Mustang debut was 1964. I can't tell from the photo if that is a first year model. Across the street is a 1960 Chevy (I think), so I would say 1964 or 1965.
A 1959 ford and a 62 ford in front of the mustang. The shuvie is a 61. I do believe the mustang is a 641/2 or early 65. Good call. Razin.

I’d be willing to bet it wasn’t a double sliding door split window bus ( pre- 68 ), less than 10 known in the world.

That is most certainly what it appears to be. Whether it was built from Hannover that way, I could not say. A few folks are good enough to add parts from a model 214 to make a double door 215. My friend made a 4 door 1978 double cab. Looked real.

Yeah i think it was like early to mid 60's. It was a rare one. He had a 23 window samba and a Combi van. They bought all 3 for around $30,000. CRAZY Money i'd say. Pretty cool Vdubs. Razin.

If these were made in hannover, My great grand parents came from their in the late 1890's. Man it's a small world. Razin.

Even smaller than you know. SO DID MY GRANDFATHER. Same grandfather contributed $25 for my fist full sized bike. With that money my dad bought a used 1954 green Schwinn Traveler 3 speed. In kinda tatty shape. He fixed the front hub, BB, head bearings, adjusted the brakes. (new to him, he'd only had coaster brakes before). Dad fussed over those expensive S-6 tires. That was 1959. Grandpa and Dad are gone. I still have the Schwinn Traveler. Pretty good investment.

You are a lucky man. I never even owned a schwinn until i started making my own money. My dad bought me my first new bike in 1967 when i was seven, a Hiawatha cadet. I wish i still had mine. Oh well. Bikes and life goes on. Have about a dozen or so know. Ride On. Razin.
