River City Park Up 3....(The Americans)

To me the Corvettes of this era had the same "Wow"effect as the E-type Jag when it was released.

1974 Chevy Cheyenne big square front, didn't have the appeal, to me, of the earlier more rounded models.

I'm not really a hot rod enthusiast, but this 1936 Ford Coupe with its modern wheels looks good.


Ford's Lincoln Continental of 1972 was big, brash and........ ugly!

The rounded styling of this '48 Mercury makes a fine looking car.

Chevrolet hardtops and sedans of the 60s are becoming a common collectors item.

The car that started the whole Pony Car thing.
The 1965 Ford Mustang GT.

1964 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 is....dynamic.

1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL.

Rego plate on this Chevy pick-up suggests it may have been New Zealand new.

2012 Dodge Charger SRT8.

There was a great line up of Cadillacs.

1976 Cadillac Eldorado is big and....

....interior is smart.

'58 Cadillac has less severe styling, but my pick was the....

.....1940 Cadillac sedan.

'73 Mercury Cougar

Another Mercury sedan. This time a '46.

Stock standard '35 Ford V8 sedan was perfect.

2x '56.

1970 Chevrolet 350 cid.

1939 Ford Coupe.

1936 Ford sedan and 1939 Chevrolet Coupe.

Dodge and Ford commercials.

'54 Chevy pick up rests in the shade.

1937 Chevrolet sedan

Similar to the previously shown Mercurys, but this time a 1947 coupe wearing the Ford badge.

'55 Oldsmobile.

1961 Buick Electra sedan.

1965 Dodge Dart has similarities to Australian Chrysler Valiant that were common here. It even uses the old reliable 225 cid slant six.

1953 Buick looks as though it may be going to stay in the condition in which it was discovered.

I still think '56 is the best looking of the Tri-Chevvies.

'39 Ford sedan.

1934 Cadillac sedan had leg-room like no other for rear seat passengers.

1974 Plymouth Duster.

1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air sedan.

A bit less common than the normal Chevy, a 1958 Pontiac Super Chief.
