  1. Bill Willsie says:

    How do you determine the year of these older model cars?

  2. Bill Willsie says:

    Thanks. (I did not know that.) I had been wondering, given all the previous examples of older cars that you have identified. Any chance to see a close-up of a windshield sticker? :-)

  3. Bob Penick says:

    Along with the fake spare tire, these were famous for the “sparrow strainer” tail lights.

  4. Austin Lucas says:

    Don’t some of those old cars look like they were about ready to go into orbit? Well, They certainly had a “50s Fiction Space-Age Comic Book” Look to them.

    I got me a Chrysler
    It’s as big as a whale
    And it’s about to set sail…

    I got me a Chrysler
    It seats about 20
    So hurry up and grab your juke box money.
