    karman Ghia next to a '65(?) Chevelle and a '67 Impala. I think tha ambulance is a Chevy or GMC cabover.

    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!)

    ehhh... not sure I can agree. That "grille" just looks dumb. Brings to mind a kids toy car.

    '13 Stang GT; '86 Benz 300E; '98 Volvo S70; '12 Leaf; '14 Town&Country

    IMO the grille on the Volt looks even more toylike, it's the worst feature of a car that isn't bad looking but is poorly detailed.

    I'm thinking mid 80's 328 GTS
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,593
    Yep, it's a 1987 Ferrari 328 GTS, the successor to Magnum PI's 308 from the early 80s. I had a ride in one of these once, pretty neat car (and a lot better looking in black than the white shown).

    That's a Karmann Ghia, but that's a '63 Pontiac Grand Prix next to it, and a '65 or '66 (I can't tell if there's a side molding or not) Chevy Impala next to the Grand Prix.

    1954 Kaiser Frazer.

    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!)

    The white car is a mid 50s Kaiser Darrin Roadster. I can't quite place the maroon car next to it.

    Bonus if you guess the location of the picture (no looking at the link)

    Six minutes - not bad. :shades:

    My brother is in Bennington VT this week, and has been over to Hemmings.

    No idea on the maroon car in the background.

    Maroon car looks like a late '60s Barracuda.

    Actually this photo was taken at the end of the tailfin era. The newest cars are the white '62 Ford Galaxie (the guy has a had on the fender) and the Buick Skylark next to it which is a '61 or '62 (IIRC). The blue/white wagon is a '61 Chevy, everything else is from the 1950s.

    As for the location: Atlantic City NJ?

    ornate motel. So guessing Wildwood NJ

    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!)

    Could the car to the right of the Impala be some kind of Buick Sportwagon? I guess the platform had clones, too.
  • steverstever YooperlandPosts: 39,999
    There was a Packard Motel in Wildwood.

    You can't make out the rear window. The only other car I can think of that has a C Pillar treatment something like that is some of the Ford and Mercury intermediates. But looking at the vent window glass, I'm pretty sure you're right.

    Packard Hotel in Packard script, interesting.

    And beside the Buick, I will guess a 55-56 Packard 400 coupe.
