    Yes - that didn't take long. Could also be a Star Sapphire, as they are pretty similar, but a few years younger.

    I'm nearly certain that is the instrument panel of a Plymouth.

    Now, anyone with a guess on the Gray car I posted just before the interior shot?

    Silver Golf doesn't even appear to be a GTI? Is it even vintage enough to be in that group?

    Bigger photo shows another one, also with steelies. Black GTI behind the silver one.

    But I will take the keys to the red Jag XK-E 3 rows back.

    Golfs date back to 1975, so that might be OK now - I don't know the rules for the event. I see a few other cars of similar youth.

    I'll just pick off the two W112 300SE fintails, and the MB W123 (starting 1976) towards the bottom.

    Sunbeam Alpine?

    Close! It's a 1965 Sunbeam Tiger.

    What's they gray car next to the red Jag?
    Also, a VW bug just a bit closer than the black/white Fintail.
  • lostwrench1lostwrench1 Ct.Posts: 479
    Ok, I'll put one chip on a 50 Plymouth.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,955
    I think the gray car is maybe a Ferrari 330.

    I will agree with most of that,and try to ID the "?" cars.

    Column 1:
    Top left - 911
    Black and red below Renault 5 - Lancia Fulvia
    I think the red "Talbot" is a Peugeot 104

    Column 2:
    Car below 911 - Ford/Lotus Cortina
    Low red car looks like Austin Healey
    I think the orange hatch is maybe a Lancia (which during high malaise was basically a Fiat)
    Car below red 911: Lancia Fulvia
    Volvo has a one piece windshield, would be a 544

    you know have 2 chips. It is a '50 Plymouth P-20

    Maxwell Smart, a.k.a. Agent 86, drove a red one in the first two seasons of "Get Smart." I understand that red Tiger was Don Adams' personal car.

    After M-B, the Stude dealer in my little hometown actually sold Sunbeam and Simca!

    Tigers are fun to drive---*very* tight driver compartment, so I could never own one without serious modifications.

    Mostly, you drive it with the gas pedal in the twisties--you need a bit of skill or you'll be in the weeds.

    That's a favorite of mine, a Ferrari 2+2, either a 250GTE or a 330GTE. I think I can just about make out the headlight surround for a four headlight 330GTE like this one>

    image

    There was a two headlight version later in the production run, most people consider it better looking but IMO the 4 headlight car looks more the part of a luxury four-place Gran Turismo.

    If I ever got to heaven (doubtful) I'd walk into a room of cars like that!

    I believe that this is a '63 Buick Wildcat. The barn find looks like a Datsun 210.

  • stickguystickguy Posts: 14,946
    correct on the Buick. Close but no cigar on the Datsun.

    I knew the Buick, and I'd have also guessed 'B210' on the other.

    Not a fan of that era Buick--overly decorated IMHO, but good cars I think. I remember a friend when I was little whose parents had a '63 Electra 225...I loved that the radio said "Sonomatic" and the speedometer had a buzzer when the Dad exceeded 80. I remember hearing the buzzer once or twice!

    For folks who like Buicks of that general era, probably my overall favorite flick, "Hush..Hush, Sweet Charlotte" with Bette Davis, Joseph Cotten, Olivia deHavilland, and Bruce Dern features a '64 Special and two different '64 Electra 225 six-window sedans, as well as a '64 Dodge Dart that is shown briefly as the Doctor's car! ;)

    Datsun 1200?

    I say Datsun 210, just 210 with no B in front.

    RWD but no power, skip the Starbucks and save up to get a 510 instead.
