Looks to be the same car in all of the photos.
Not sure which was more popular - Stan and Babe, or their flivver?
Today I am stuck at page 4461. Recently it was page 4489
That's Deborah Harry in about 1980.

Friendly town automotive safety program in Danville Illinois. The city created a small town in a city park with buildings, sidewalks, traffic signals etc. and used it to teach grade school kids how to be safe walking, on their bikes and even driving electric powered Mustang JR cars. The little buildings were used to store the cars when not in use. For the real little kids they had wired remote hand controls like the officers have in their right hand. The remote operated the accelerator only the driver steered the car.
