    It's a '56. Looks like a Ranch Wagon.

    You're off by a couple of years Stickguy, it's a 1956 Ford Ranch Wagon.

    Good guess but it's a 1991 Porsche 944S2.

    I'm going to guess Cadillac ELR. It is parked next to a Volt.

    Yup, looks a lot nicer than the Volt too.

    Rare sighting in Kent, WA, 1969 (not the cars, they are probably all still on the road)

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

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

    '17 F150 Crew 2.7; '67 Coronet R/T; '14 Town&Country Limited; '09 LR2 HSE. 44-car history and counting!

  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 19,389
    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: 19,389
    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.

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

    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.
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 19,389
    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

  • fintailfintail Posts: 44,911
    Could the car to the right of the Impala be some kind of Buick Sportwagon? I guess the platform had clones, too.
  • steverstever Posts: 52,683
    There was a Packard Motel in Wildwood.
  • berriberri Posts: 8,539
    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.
  • fintailfintail Posts: 44,911
    Packard Hotel in Packard script, interesting.

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