The fearsome fins of a 1959 Cadillac, this one a Fleetwood 60 4 door hardtop. The solar panels on the house offset the car's approximate 8 mpg.

Nope, this barn find image is all-Chevy, with a 69 Camaro on the Chevy hauler. Based on the decals and dust, I'd guess the last time it saw a drag strip was circa 1983.

It's a modestly equipped base model 1956 Ford Mainline sedan, and looks like your folks babied it as it is still looks showroom condition in July 1963.

Looks like somebody had their 1940 Packard 110 coupe impounded for 80 years of parking tickets. Next to it is another Packard, a 1948.

A contraption of his own design and construction, using a Continental engine.

Gramps was understandably proud of that car, a very swanky 1938 Buick convertible.

RIP Tracy. Not much to go on here, and I'm torn between a 1963 Chevy Impala 4 dr hardtop and a 1965 Dodge Polara/Monaco 4 dr hardtop.

Another toddler precariously perched on a car radiator, and another tough ID challenge. I'm thinking a circa 1923 Nash, but not 100% certain. The "Ashland" on the radiator isn't the car, it's a tourist souvenir of a trip to Ashland.

Behold the typical Depression era Safety First toddler snapshot, with this bouncing baby boy on a 1930-31 Buick.

This has to be one of the most amazing photo back story ID requests I have ever gotten, but I think I need to call for some ID reinforcements here. I will take a very wild stab at circa 1920 Napier, but with low confidence.

A 1941 Oldsmobile, the car with a mug only a mother could love.

This lanky chick magnet is leaning on a 1950 Pontiac Chieftain Silver Streak convertible. Not really sure, but is that an RAF uniform?

Apparently so, as both pics show a 1941 Chevy coupe, and Grandpa looking like a hardboiled gumshoe straight from the pages of Raymond Chandler.

Looks like the ladies and the gent in the middle are sharing a joke the fellas on the end don't appreciate. Near the sourpuss on the right is a 1950-51 Studebaker Champion, and I'd put the photo around 1950-54.

On left is a 1934 Dodge DS sedan, and would definitely not be the rumble seat car Grandma recalled (rumble seats were only on coupes, roadsters and convertibles). On right is a tough call but I venture another Dodge, a 1940 fastback sedan.
