    G'day

    Definitely not Chrysler. Early 50's GM, probably Chevrolet!

    Cheers

    C'mon, it's the movies, gotta be a Chrysler.

    Unless they just used a Chevy for shooting some scenes. :shades:

    The yellow car, facing left, on the image posted, is definitely a 49-52 Chevy. The Hemingway car is the Chrysler.

    There is no chance the yellow car is a '55 Chrysler. That car looks totally different. It sure looks like an early '50s GM to me.

    G'day

    You are going really obscure, even for Australian cars!

    This is a Holden Brougham, I think an HG model from about 1970-71. However there is something about the grille which looks not quite right so I wonder if it is an overseas market export. The model script would normally be on the lip of the bonnet, not on the grille.

    The Brougham was essentially a Holden Premier, with a longer boot, but the body and nose was bog standard Holden fare. It was not a sales success and died after three years, to be replaced by the long wheelbase Holden Statesman.

    Cheers

    Triumph Italia 2000 - early 60's. A rare car here - I think most of them went to NA.

    It is just me, or does it seem like that car should have been longer?

    Yup, it's a '64 Triumph 2000 Italia/Vignale. They're very rare here as well, I've only seen them in photographs.

    looks to be a Mark 3 Supra.

    Maybe a Turbo with those wheels? Which I seem to remember were on later run cars, so I will guess around 1990-92.

    I was going to comment on the painted vs black trim, too, but, hell, at this point, any of that stuff could have been done later in the car's life.

    Yup, that's a 1991 Toyota Supra Turbo. I saw a Corvette C4 sporting that same white body/white wheels scheme. I'm glad that fad has gone way.

    Oh, but it hasn't completely. You can buy a Porsche that way. Its around a $3k option. :sick:

    Probably went well with the leisure suits of the era.

    A pastel Miami Vice suit and Duran Duran style hair would work well.

    They didn't drive the white Benz, but the guy they were chasing did. :shades:

    I remember a 7-series with the white-out treatment... Shot that guy (drug kingpin) and he ended up draped over the open rear door...

    not that I ever watched it...

    I would.
    Hell, I don't know if those fenders would even fit in my garage anyway. :sick:

    That works.

    Regarding fender width, you'd need special parking, and to be a special kind of person. On modern cars, I would find a widebody like that to be pretty awful, but on a 124 Hammer or 126, it's pretty hot - back in the day, a hot rod MB was pretty exotic.
