Any of us "car guys" got an idea what year/make/model these are?
around 1948 something.
The image is pixelated and does not blow up very well
I figured both cars you can see were late 40s. Maybe the one on the right is a caddy convert? '48 series 62?
I think so....a ‘49 model
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.
I think you are correct. I concur.
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.
