    The white Falcon on the left looks like the one I got stuck on the railroad track soon after I got my driver's license in 1966. Snow in the mountains and the VW Bug turning left has skis on the rear rack. Vermont?

    On the left, a 63 Chevy Nova 400 wagon and the Barre, Vermont WW1 memorial. "They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old.........."

    Nice going guys, yes that is the intersection of Rtes. 302 and 14 in Barre, Vermont, ca. 1969.

    For some reason, I think of Vermont having wide boulevards like that one.

    Honda S600, diminutive ancestor of the also-petite S2000.

    Narrow two-lanes are a lot more typical. US 302 is one of the main East-West routes in Northern New England (it runs SE to NW from Portland ME to Montpelier VT a few miles from where that photo was taken) and it is mostly 2 lane.

    Yep, it's a '65 Honda S600, roughly Sprite-sized.

    Mitsubishi Mirage (were they mirages back then?) next to a Jag XJ-S convertible.

    back row looks like a brown '79ish Grand Prix.

    Pretty sure that still is from the movie Speed.

    Too hard to tell, the brown car could also be a Cutlass.

    Yup, it's from Speed, they don't ID the brown car. The Mitsu Mirage is a '91 and the Jag is an XJ-S roadster.

    I forgot the word Don't, so that made my whole comment wrong.

    The brown car is a Cutlass Supreme.

    Exactly! Looks just like this one>

    Those '61 Ponchos were real lookers, some of the finest of the Mitchell era. Take a good look at how that front bumper is blended in.

    I'm going to guess the blue one is around a 54 or 55 Nash and the maroon one is an early 50's Nash bathtub model. Interesting cars for their time really.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,799
    Yeah, the blue one is a '54 Ambassador. You can tell by the skirted wheel the other is an earlier Nash. How do you suppose they changed front tires on those things? You had to take the whole fender off a Citroen ID/DS

    I had a 51. When you jacked it up it took a long time before the front wheels left the ground after which there was no problem removing the wheel.
    The red one is a 51.
    The easiest way to ID a 54 is by its concave grille.

    Right country of origin, wrong make and model.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,847
    That's not by any chance a Daihatsu, is it?? No way I could come up with a model. Just kind of reminds me of something from Gran Turismo.

    '14 CTS Vsport; '15 Fit LX 6-spd; '98 Volvo S70 base; '14 Town&Country Limited

    If so would it be a Charade?
