Curbside Classic Clue

Paul Niedermeyer
by Paul Niedermeyer

The ’54 Cadillac’s AC inlet vent stimulated some cool guesswork. I’m a little challenged to say if there’s one winner, since these were used for some time. SOF in training first nailed it for what it is generically. But the duke really nailed it, with his guess of a ’55 Caddy, and the pic to go with it. So I’m going to give him the win, because the angle and other details match up. Congratulations, once again.

    1st-gen Seville is probably right, but if not, I'm going to go with something different -- 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88.

    I'm going to break away from the crowd and say it's a late 70's Dodge Diplomat or Chrysler Lebaron. There was one down the street when I was a kid, same colour too.

    On a side note, why did it take so many decades for Detroit to give the white accents on the tail lights the burial it so richly deserved? I always thought it made a car look cheaper.
