The Cars of Others – Saab 95, Mustang II

Spotted this Saab 95 wagon outside WhiskeyFest Northwest. Believe it’s a later production model from the 70s, due to the front fascia design, front hinged doors, and rear ‘spoiler’.

This Mustang II ‘Ghia’ falls somewhere between 1974-78. Aside from being painted and upholstered with one of the most offensively boring color combos possible it looks pretty good for its age.

The Keen Shoes Checker cab, parked near their new storefront on NW 13th. Based on the bumper, a 1972 or later example.

Got a little further re-assembling the Midway CT I picked up. The Galaxian glass isn’t pretty, but it’s an original and the price was right.

I laid down some cork from Ace Hardware between the table top and glass to give it an even surface to ride on and keep it from sliding. Need to get some more clips since the cab only came with three, and brace the door side of the table top since it’s warped enough to allow for a worrying amount of flex if you press on the long edge of the glass on that side.

Got some complete original Gorf CT control panels on order from Quarter Arcade. Didn’t cost a whole lot more than the blank repros and saves me a bunch of work and parts gathering.
