Woof woof dog dishes.

I wonder what GM stylist created the front fender chrome design.

That is such an awesome specimen. I love the patina and the stretched out DE LUXE. The chevron upholstery is great and headliner painting says win.

I've ridden in this car many times. It drives like a dream. Got a tape deck in it with lots of Grateful Dead live tapes.

Picture number 2. The condition of that paint reminds me of a car I saw over here on the East Coast within the last 10 years. It was a 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 pillared four-door sedan. Sometimes when I use to pass through this neighborhood ( Howard Beach ) in Queens I would see the thing on Cross Bay Boulevard . The car was also blue and looked almost the same as this particular car.
I love the New York bumper sticker thanks!!

Aw this one's a beaut! You captured the decay so well, especially in #3.

Nicely lit against the buildings, but maybe too shaded on the far side to get a shot.

My Dad had a '54 Bel Air stuffed with 6 kids (4 in back, me on Mom's lap, and my sister stuck in the middle of the front seat).

This car had manual steering, manual brakes, 3 on a tree, and the old man never stalled the engine, no matter the situation. Like ridding in a car with a automatic transmission.

Absolutely beautiful patina, love the shot of the ancient NY bumper sticker and the "DELUXE" fender trim.
