    I was thinking Continental but it didn't look quite right, those must be related, yeah?

    It was only the first step in trying to make the big Mercs look more like Lincolns, less like fancy Fords, but mechanically it was closer to the big Fords.

    Here are my guesses. An early, maybe 62 Chevy II convertible, a "beautiful" 61 Plymouth whose front end seems to be setting the image for some of today's lux cars, a 60 Ford, some kind of mid sixties intermediate Plymouth or Dodge police car, maybe a mid 60's Barracuda convertible in the foreground. Can't make out the maybe Chevy coupe (65 or 66) and a mid sixties Mustang in the background. Can't tell what the car is that's turning.

    Yup, Police cars in this scene from Adam-12 are '67 Plymouth Belvederes, later in the 70s A12 featured AMC Matadors.

    The 'Cuda convertible is a '69, here it is with a Belvedere B&W>

    See the man - I think that gold car is a 63 or 64 Cadillac.

    Those back windows are puny, though. Good luck backing up blind.

    No wonder backup cams are becoming mandatory.

    Actually, the Adam-12 car in that picture is a 1969 Plymouth Belvedere.

    My cousin has lived on this street for many years but not when this was taken.

    First car on the left, 'Christine'.
    That Worthington Street looks a whole lot better than the one in Springfield does right now.

    OK, I'll say that both the Olds in front on the right and the Mercury behind it are '55s.

    I thought the Olds was a '56 but I checked and the chrome on the side indicates you are correct, it's a '55.

    The image on my computer is kind of blurred. But I'm thinking behind that 55 Merc is a 53 or 54 Chevy or Pontiac, and behind it maybe a 53 Merc?

    Despite the movie "Christine", I've always liked the 57 and 58 Plymouth's. Actually, I got a kick out of the movie too!

    Looks like the Bentley version of the Phantom VI. It looks far more elegant than that abomination behind the window.

    that abomination

    For some reason the new ones look like Charlie Chaplin.

    Some kind of Bentley Continental S3, not sure who made the body. "A" suffix would be 1962-63 I think.

    Yup, it's a '62 Bentley Continental Flying Spur S3, body by H.J. Mulliner.

    You can say what you want about Lucas electronics, but the Brit's put out a lot of very classic styling in my view at least.

    That's a pretty big engine sitting in the showroom in the window under 'Wood'.

    It's definitely a '63 Caddy.

    Waging an early 50's Nash. No idea of the model.

    Never seemed to see many of those vintage coupes, mostly just 6 window sedans.

    Yup, like many cars of the era it had an involved name. It's a 1950 Nash Statesman Custom.

    G'day

    Before they went curvy. A Mercedes W123 model, from about 1980. I still think they look cool
