The girl, the Buick and the shadow

Cute kid. Probably has no clue how cool her parents were for owning a car like that. But they were indeed cool. Very cool. Hey kid! Your mom and dad were cool once! Now scootch over so we can get a better look at that 1956 Buick Special.


Underwood Park, Chandelier Tree

I bought a photo lot of 22 pictures just so I could own this single one. Is this not perfect? See the USA in your Chevrolet (except this is not a Chevy). Real life american lore playing out right before your eyes. Wonderful. The car is a sedan not a coupe (based on driver’s door shape), and it’s a Plymouth, c. 1950. Family photos, and for that matter Attic Autos just don’t get any better than this. Enjoy!


“Eva and David Wargo. Sept 1957”

Curious. Why would anyone go to the trouble of writing on a photograph in such great detail (“Eva and David Wargo. Sept 1957” scribbled on back AND “Eva & David” written on the front)┬ábut completely overlook the make and year of the obvious automobile smack in front of your subjects? It took 56 years to make this photo right, but Attic Autos finished where Eva and David left off — for the curious, the car is a 1956 Buick Special. Now we know everyone in the photo. Whew!


The Packard

woman dog convertible

Pretty, well dressed lady, obedient dog, both posed with an old car all in one photograph! An old car photograph hunter’s jackpot. No writing found here so we’ll never know the dog’s name or its owner’s but that car? No mistaking it. If you guessed a 1948 Packard Super 8 Convertible you’d be spot on.
