Now that I'm scanning negatives, I've fed some old family slides through the scanner as well. Here's one from pre-California Chez Martin, circa 1970, in lovely Spring Lake Park, Minnesota.

The cars in the driveway should be familiar to my stalkers regular readers, since I've posted on them a few times before, but the ones in the background will be more challenging. This slide knocked around in the bottom of a drawer for about 35 years, so it features some dust and scratches in addition to the original lack of focus; to make things slightly easier, I've grabbed images of the six non-Martin machines and put them (in their original scanned sizes) in the gallery below. Eight vehicles total- who can identify them all?
