Jaguar

Lincoln

Mercury

1970 Marquis Convertible

"Massive" only begins to describe this 229 inch long, 4470-lb. behemoth.

Oldsmobile

1958 Super 88

1970 Cutlass Convertible

1971 Cutlass

I admit to having a bit of a soft spot for this era of Olds Cutlass. My father had a 1971 Cutlass Supreme, and I still remember the day he brought it home. Sadly, it didn't last long enough for me to inherit when it came time for me to get my license.

1968 Vista Cruiser

If you grew up in the US anytime between the mid-1960's and the late 1970's, you knew these cars well. They seemed to be in every other family's driveway. The best were the ones with the optional fold-away rear-facing seat - THAT was the seat you wanted to ride in!

Plymouth

1940 Sedan

1965 Satellite

Pretty sure the cell phone holder isn't period correct. Can't explain the severed doll head.

Making a bit of a statement with that sticker in the window, eh?

Valliant Scamp

Pontiac

1958 Chieftan

1957 Star Chief
