After all of these C&C posts, I think we should offset things with some less minty classics. I spotted these from a distance whilst out cycling this afternoon (no, I'm not a traitor. It really is good exercise. Just use a bike path). Upon closer examination, there were maybe two or three dozen old American cars in various states of decay sitting in the back corner of a storage-type lot. I will do my best to identify all of them for you, but let me know if I missed/misnamed one.

This is the car that has me scratching my head. It is obviously a 1959 Cadillac. But it is also obviously a station wagon. Now, to my knowledge, Cadillac did not make a station wagon in 1959. Hearses and Ambulances, yes, but no wagons, and this is no hearse. Google searches confirmed my suspicions: this car does not exist. Except it does. Can anyone tell me what it is?

This one appear to be about a '71 Pontiac Catalina Hearse. It was, in case you can't tell in the picture, enormous.


Next to the mystery Caddy was another wagon, this one a 1960 Buick LeSabre,


and another '60 LeSabre behind the Cadillac.

Further along there was a 1960 Cadillac Fleetwood,


a '70-71 Chrysler of some sort (there were a few of these),

*Correction, a 1972/3 Imperial LeBaron


a 1964 Chrysler Imperial (and Dodge Daytona/Rampage),

a '62 Ford Country Squire (sorry, bad pic),


something from the mid 30's (Ford?), another '64 Imperial,

another '70-71 Chrysler, a '66 Chrysler Newport, and a '71 Chevy Impala/Caprice.

*Correction (L to R) A 1975 Chrysler New Yorker, a 1968 Imperial Crown and a 1972 Plymouth Fury.


There were a dozen or so more cars I couldn't get decent pictures of, but it was more of the same kind of stuff.
