    I figured both cars you can see were late 40s. Maybe the one on the right is a caddy convert? '48 series 62?

    The one on the left- has the taillights inboard similar to a '47 Nash 600

    '49 Buick convert - check the bumper. The middle one kinda looks like a pre-war Packard Clipper.

    The one on the right is definitely a 49 Buick.

    Honest to goodness, that was my first and second impression too. Then I began second/third guessing myself, thinking I could see the trademark Caddy mini-fin taillight sticking up. Expanding the photo did no good. I violated the old axiom that “your first thought is usually correct“..:(

    The error is especially painful since I am a many decades admirer of ‘49 Buicks.
