With all cars properly accounted for, and myself a bit more informed to boot, as promised, here is the most proper line up that would fit in a frame.
Not to be confused with the Circus coming to town.
Pictures looked much better before I had to compress them to get them on the forum.
However, now when I click on the image identification nomenclature I get a message asking if I want to replace the download.  When I allow this, and open in a viewer that pops up as a suggestion - the picture goes to full frame, and seems clear enough.
I hope this option is available to the rest of the Rumsters out there.
My apologies if not.
Helpful suggestions always welcomed.

Helpful suggestions to restore picture quality will be welcomed.

That's a great-looking line-up!

I'm assuming there's a size limit on posted photos?  If so, I suggest the best thing would be to crop the originals so that unimportant areas (eg above and below the cars) don't use up the allowance, and the important areas can then remain fully detailed.

Hope that helps

Interesting place. Looks like the edge of drained land, with a carpark behind. Leading to the sort of place only microcars would get stored. The first line of defence, the unlikely storage address!

Indeed, I have a legal right to use the private road that parallels this narrower Flood Control owned  access to my barn property that is but 1/4 mile from my home.   I use this more stealthy entrance when wishing to avoid possibly troublesome complications that might be generatable from overly nosey neighbors inquisitions.

Although I am breaking no laws that I am aware of, it cannot hurt to have my barn off the maps due to its creation before the inception of legislation that requires this.
It is also nice that many people that I know who live nearby, have driven past my barn for decades, but have yet to notice it.

I left out the following picture so as to avoid making easier the suggestion that perhaps my train of French clown cars would be better off using the lowermost concrete lined path.

Worth a hundred words.
How thick the foam?
How thick the plywood?
On mine the panel that stands on its edge and lies betwixt the right and left bulk heads that form the seat base plate's side supporting surfaces is made of carpeted thin plywood that is attached by screws to these torque boxes.
On yours, the analogous panel seems to be  unattached, at least on the end furthest from the camera.
What is going on here?
Am I correct in assuming that your seat bottom cushion has been replaced?
