      Picture of my house from ca. 1940.


      I think we determined it was a 38 Pontiac sean.

      This is the local VW dealer in town, based on the cars ca. 1987. Notice this Porsche as this was a VW and Audi+Porsche dealer

      Oh and this... from the construction of the Braga Bridge in Fall River, in the early 60s.


      I should scan pics of my dad's old El Dorado... that was his baby.

      Your post reminded of this photo of my mom's house when she was a kid.
