Hate to start out today's #DavesCarIDService with uncertainty, but wild guess is 1925-ish Dodge Brothers sedan, with 33% confidence level. Radiator badges & visor are off though, might be a Paige or some rarer make that's escaping me rn

Diamond badge may be from a car club. I welcome a definitive ID; distinguishing characteristics are 1922-28 7 passenger sedan, steel wheels, can shaped lights, marker lights on cowl, split windshield, angled visor, fender shape
ahhhhh, much easier. Two 1918-ish Ford Model T Touring cars.
Pro tip: in your pre-1923 or so family photos, there's a very high likelihood the car is some version of a Ford Model T. Ford had a 50% global market share at the time
1957 Pontiac Star Chief or Super Chief, with I think a bottle of Blatz on the fender #DavesCarIDService
1953 Chevy 210 sedan
1941 Ford Tudor, hopped up with twin Stromberg 97 carbs
1961-65 Chevy Corvair Greenbriar van
I think a 1910-ish Regal, but I really, really want to believe a 1910-ish Iowa-made Maytag roadster
Note the non-electric headlights. Prior to 1915 or so most car headlights were sealed gas flame, fueled by butane or propane or carbide pellets. The little tank on the running board is for headlight gas.
Maytag and Maytag-Mason was Iowa's biggest car make, started by washing machine magnate FL Maytag and designed by the Duesenberg brothers Fred & Augie. They later moved to Indianapolis and had more fame with their own brand (and the term 'it's a doozy')
1961-64 Chevy Corvair, hopped up with a $2.99 JC Whitney racing stripe decal
What are you, a Rockefeller? 1928ish Packard Convertible Coupe and a 1928ish Chrysler Imperial, lah-tee-dah
2012 or so Ferrari 458 Spider; it would have your hair whipping around in the wind at 180 mph, Goldilocks @AnnaZ
@AnnaZ 1936 Packard 120 Convertible Coupe, optioned with dual sidemounts and no rumble seat
@AnnaZ If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say 67-68 Pontiac Catalina
@AnnaZ 1936 Ford Deluxe, and with that wartime "A" gas ration stamp on the windshield, Grandpa was allowed to buy 4 gallons per week
@AnnaZ 1960 or so Nash Metropolitan, and I don't want to even guess what's going on inside it
@AnnaZ Aha! Then I will correct myself that it is a 1957 Canada-only Pontiac Laurentian, thus explaining the fender script
