  • Seeking help to identify an american car in this 1959 photo...

    This is a photo of my folks on their wedding day, July 1959.
    Can anyone point me in the direction of the model of car in the foreground?
    I gotta figure those horizontal lines along the rear fender are pretty distinctive.
    Thanks in advance...

      Great picture of your parents. Love that old Oldsmobile. I guess you can say that was your father's Oldsmobile!

        My sister is pretty sure it was our Grandfather's Oldsmobile!

        It is definitely a classic!

          Beautiful car, indeed! My dad only bought Oldsmobile cars - not new ones, but nice used ones.

            I had to share this photo that my wife discovered today.
            This is her mom, showing off her new VW in May of 1962. She was about 25 at the time:



            That's some outfit for car-shopping, eh?
