Other Interesting Two and Four Wheel Machines:

With this motorcycle below (Honda CB 750 Four) Honda imposed a new pattern of bikes, unknown until then by the public: power and beauty you could trust for its reliability, all of that packed in a sleek design.

Wonderful Honda CB 750 K1.  In my humble opinion it is the 'Queen of Japanese Motorcycles'.  The most thrilling sound that one could hear coming from the exhausts. The most beautiful sound an engine could produce, coming from the four-in-four exhausts or even from the 4-in-one customized exhausts.

The following photo shows a magnificent Honda CB 750 K2, 1975 make, that I came across during the 25th Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show & Autojumble, on the 12th of February, 2005.

A very rare Yamaha 650 cc Turbo at the streets of Verona  - Italy, in September of 1982.
This is one of the most exotic bike I have seen so far.  I say that considering the fact that this is a bike coming from the normal production line, despite being in small numbers. To compete with it I could mention the Suzuki 550 cc factory fitted with the Wankel engine (rotary) - an experimental model produced in small numbers, as the one being ridden in Goiania - GO by the beginning of the eighties.

My father, Mori, and his Mangalarga horse Omega.  The car is a Chevrolet Opala, six cilinder, automatic, 1975.  The engine is the orange series (250 S).
My father and his beautiful Mangalarga horse Omega, in front of the main house at Vereda Farm, at the district of Hidrolandia - GO.  The car is a Chevrolet Opala, six cilinder (250 S), automatic, that belonged to me in 1986/87. This car was custom built by General Motors, for a handicap lady in Curitiba - PR. I bought this car in 1986, at that occasion the odometer showed a total of only 50.000 km registered in it.

Chrysler Corporation do Brasil produced wonderful cars during the seventies, among them the Dodge Dart, the Charger R/T and the Dodge 1800 (Dodginho), later called Dodge Polara. As a true fan of this brand, I was fortunate enough to own the three mentioned models at the end of the eighties.

Holden is a genuine Australian company, founded in 1948. Initially they aimed to build sturdy and reliable cars for the Australians.  Years later they were incorporated by General Motors, but proudly kept their brand.  They produce wonderful cars. My Holden, showed on these two photos is the Kingswood, 6 cilinder, 1971, automatic and is very similar to its "Brazilian cousin" Chevrolet Opala 3.800 cc, which was called at its time Chevrolet Opala Gran Luxo.
