    Damn that was good timing!

    For the record, the wheels are probably worth more than the car!

    I think the rear is a little different. But it could be mate? Just a newer version of it perhaps? :):)

    I don't claim to be an expert at identifying American cars, but I'd guess that the first one is a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air, and the second one is a 1957 Ford Fairlane Skyliner Retractable Hardtop.

    '56 Chevrolet with a '57 Chevy right behind it. Correct also on the 57 Ford Starliner retractable hardtop.

    I believe I see a '38 Chevy sedan behind the Starliner and a '56 M/B beside it.......I think, could be wrong....

    No clue on car in the pic, but recently I was in SE Wisconsin and happend to be at a hotel that hosted a "Ford retractable club" national event. No hot chicks, no hot cars.... cars were crap, event was crap (was there for other reasons), people and overall event were pretty much dead... lots of guys with brill cream.

    I like cars...cars of all kinds, yet this event really was dead and the cars themselves while a part of american history were not even close to being anything close to exciting in person....sorry...JMHO

    Yet the bottom line is drive, own, buy, dream of, lust after that which appeals to you and screw the rest of us who have a worhtless opinion =)

    That's the result after too much whiskey and having a 3 way with a 93, 911, 2005 Crossfire and a 1940's Jaguar.

    Yes it is a Buick, not exactly sure of what year. Could be a 48-50?
