    I had that one along with several other Brit army vehicles. I loved those Dinkys.

    Yes, and I think the cheapest least-expensive one you could get; a LeSabre 2-door sedan.

    Right Lostwrench, it's a 1960 Buick Lesabre, in the background, to the right can be seen a '65-ish Mercury and the tail of a '62 Chevy Impala.

    > right can be seen a '65-ish Mercury

    Is the gold car the Mercury? I get the impression of a Dodge or Chrysler. Maybe partly by the C-pillar shape along with the ridge along the side.

    Guess you forgot that side marker lights came in for 1968. That's a 1970 Toyota Corona.

    Forgot? Heck, I was 5 in 1968.

    My folks had a '73 Corona.

    Time can change things. I remember when those early Toyota's and Nissan's came over here I thought they were not only ugly, but maybe just a bit short of repulsive. However, looking at them today I sort of like them. I can't put my finger on what made me change my mind (senility?), but seriously, maybe there is something a bit art deco about them. I believe there is an old Toyota collection or museum somewhere in the vast LA area. I need to look that up next time I've got some time out there.

    2013 Acura RDX (wife's), 2007 Volvo S40 (when daughter lets me see it), 2000 Acura TL (formerly son's, now mine again), and new Jetta SE (son's first new car on his own dime!)

    Hey, that's the first 59 Ford that I've seen from during it's era that actually had a continental kit for the rear tire back then - seriously! I liked Mopars in the old days, so I'll take the blue 61 Chrysler sedan. Cheyenne isn't near as booming these days, but it's downtown is still worth a quick look if you're on I-80 in Wyoming. Big western wear place that was fun to look around and a really neat old record shop last time I was there.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,602
    That's a 1959 Pontiac (Safari?) wagon next to the Chrysler. Further down, under the bank sign, I think there's a yellow and white '57 Ford and heading the other way a blue '60 Chevy. Good chance this photo was taken in 1961, I think.

    I'm trying to help someone out with a theft. I'm having a hard time figuring this out. The taillights should be a big help, but I'm coming up empty so far. The sideview seems to show a 4-door coupe type of car. And the headlights with what appears to be fogs or aux lights under them.

    I've enhanced the pics as best I can with the software I have here at work.

    Are these any better?

    With the shape of the metal around the license plate holder and the positioning of the rear view mirrors, someone should recognize the car.

    The dark blotches almost show numbers on the license.

    Is that an antenna on top of the car? One of those flat V-shape antennas for TV?

    at first I stuck them in my message, but it appears to be distorting the pics a bit. In the original, the car is a bit longer in the profile pic.

    Big square dash.
    Long term test.

    I'm guessing Silverado.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,630
    What's that? An ATM in the dash to help you get cash price at the pump?

    Very good - the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado showing the "Parking Card Holder".

    I think the thing on the roof is actually an illusion, being something on the ground ahead of the car.

    I am having a tough time with the car, but it is distinctive with the license plate area and taillights, which appear to have a light area on the trunklid.

    Maybe submit it to Jalopnik, they do car ID spots all the time.
  • uplanderguyuplanderguy Kent, OHPosts: 7,494
    Although the mirrors look big to me, I'd guess either a late-model Pontiac Grand Prix or G6.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 33,598
    I got a Pontiac feeling from it too. Tail lights don't seem to match tough, at least in the quick google search I made.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    The side mirrors look like they're door mounted, or at least very low mounted.

    Not too many cars have those, and most that do don't fit the overall body.

    Hopefully the mirrors ring a bell for someone.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 17,226
    Yeah, that's definitely an important detail. I would be pegging it for a previous gen GS350 if not for those mirrors.

    ...wheels, this car most likely was delivered on small 13" steel wheels with wheel covers, those Minilites make it look sportier than it is>

    Is that a Datsun 210? Actually pretty good styling IMHO--sure beat the "Honey Bee" my uncle bought later. ;)
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,602
    Yup, it was sold in most markets as the Datsun 1200.
