    Are people calling the yellow convertible a Galaxy? It says Thunderbird right on it..

    1957 Cadillac Coupe De Ville
    1963 Ford Thunderbird from earlier but with dirt stripes.

    • Kfd

      The Skylark rag is a ’71. The ’70s didn’t have the grilles in the bumper, the ’72s had more pronounced squared-off light bezels, and the grilles were recessed around the left and right margins. My first car was a Stratomist Blue ’71!

      • Jim-Bob

        I was thinking it was a 1971-72 because of the grille, but wasn’t certain I was right. I’m sure I am off a bit on some of the others too, but I was doing it off memory, boredom and insomnia after a night of pizza delivery.

    • geomechs geomechs Member

      That red MG (unless I’m missing something) is a TF, which happens to be my favorite of that series (TB-TF). I wasn’t aware that a fiberglass kit was available for that model.

      • Jim-Bob

        It was a guess based upon the white color showing through and a total lack of rust for a car that has sat that long. I figured the white was a gelcoat and the cheap red paint was peeling off of it due to poor prep work by a kit builder that was done before sending the body off to a volume paint shop like Maaco. Then again… I could be wrong. I just like trying to solve the mystery of cars like this when I see the pictures. By no means do I think I am always right.

      • paul

        usually the kits don’t have real wire wheels, I think it’s a genuine TF.

    • Alfieri

      @Jim-Bob: you must have missed my previous post above. That is clearly no Triumph motorcycle, it’s a 1970 Norton Commando Roadster. To us, that would be like identifying a Camaro as a Mustang.

  9. Don Andreina

    The red alfa coupe is a 2000. The ferny spider is a giulietta or a giulia, can’t tell but it makes for a nice garden feature. I can’t choose between the black Cadillac and the red Porsche. Very nice pictures, Dan.

    • paul

      In the US it was called a GTV

  10. Tim

      The ALRo GTV is later then 68, 68 had a step nose, smaller tail lights, smaller round side markers & no badge on the c pillar, this one looks to be early 70’s.
