Commencin' to do another #DavesCarIDService thread, so mute if it annoys you. <cracks knuckles>
1960-ish Bedford or Commer commercial van, front end a narrowed 1958 Plymouth, quarter panel trim 1955 Mercury, taillights hints of 1959 Ford
1957 Ford station wagon, 1957 Florida postcard cheesecake model, don't know about the snake, I'm not a herpetologist
I think it's a 1960s Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, but I really need to have a better look at those headlights
1918-ish Ford Model T speedster. "Speedsters" were not a factory model, made from stripping down a T roadster to bucket seats. Early, early hot rodding
There were over 300 different VW-based fiberglass dune buggy makers in the late 60s-early 70s, and ID-ing this one took much more research effort than it was possibly worth: 1970-ish Dolphin Mod T
principal difference between a pickup and a ute is that a ute has bed panels that integrate with the cab; on pickups they are separate
1969 Citroen DS, the Space Age Frogmobile of the Future
the very distinctive grille of a 1916-19 Franklin (HT @tronguy)
@tronguy it is indeed a 1933 Buick Club Sedan, but the chromed A-arm IFS and radial tires portend one with a great deal of modifications underneath
@tronguy low red one on left is an American Underslung or Chalmers, #2 and #4 seem 1915-ish Ford Model Ts, tapping out on the others. I'm guessing somewhere early post-WW1
@tronguy an "underslung" car had springs mounted underneath the axle, allowing it to sit much lower than a typical car of the era. American Underslung, Chalmers, and Regal ran this setup
@tronguy if a couple of early car makers had merged, we could have had an "American Underslung Buffalo Electric Pleasure Vehicle," which would have been a great name for a car, a 1960s psychedelic band, or a sex toy
@tronguy 1937 Chevy coupe, looks like it's sporting either Keystone Klassic or Buick Riviera 5-spoke rims
@tronguy It is a 1946-48 Buick sedanette, could either be a Roadmaster or Super
@tronguy Thus concludes today's installment of #DavesCarIDService, I will try to mop up some more tomorrow
