The photo was taken in August of 1964. Anyone have any thoughts on year, make, model of these two classics?

Thanks...

    The car on the right is definitely a 1958 Buick Special.

    The white car is harder. it's a mid-sixties Mopar, probably a Dodge or Plymouth mid size ca. 1964-65.
    Polara, Lance, Belvedere, Satellite...I'm not good on those

    Looks like a '63 Dodge Dart, maybe a GT.

    You are probably right Mr. S.

    LOL. Next what's the car seen above the tailfin of the red Buick?
    Are the windshield profile and side windows enough to ID it?

    2014 Malibu 2LT, 2015 Cruze 2LT,

    I believe the GT was only offered as a hardtop or convertible. So that Dart is either a 170 or 270. The dog-dish hubcaps would lead me to believe it's a 170, but the side molding makes me think of a 270.

    That's definitely not a GT; not in a two-door sedan bodystyle. And with that side molding and the bright trim around the side windows, that's a Dart 270. I could tell the year more by seeing the front wheel opening. With that side trim located about halfways down, my educated guess is that it's a '66.

    EDIT: I now saw the comment about the photo being taken in August '64. That's a '63 Dart 270 then. The '64's side molding was higher on the car.

    The car above the Buick fin makes me think Buick Special/Chevy II etc convertible

    Yeah, I thought maybe that "post" was just the two window trims meeting, but now that I look more closely, definitely not a GT.
