The missus’ Uncle Harry was there. The Japanese were strafing the airfield, and Harry dived under the heaviest piece of equipment he could find.  He found out later that it was an ammo truck.

Harry survived the attack. Many did not.

Okay, so I was curious about the image previously posted here, trying to suss out what make/model/year the car is, as the source didn’t identify it. Tineye had nothing, and a Google image search of classic car grilles didn’t help.

Then I found a link to another image search engine:Looked pretty cool, so I decided to take it for a spin, and my question was answered instantly.

Awesome.
