You've given a bunch of guesses, the Nailhead is the ONLY one, the V6 is not flat. It's your floor Noland.

Haa

Hey Brian, Didn't know I was an ol' Buick nut did ya? I played around with a 455 boat tail Riviera for awhile and learned a bit about Buicks. Ain't nothing sweeter than a nailhead with two fours.

Okay, In this TV show the folks had a psychedelic vehicle, what show?, what vehicle?

Well, not sure if this is right because you said "show", but is it the movie Christine with the 58 Plymouth Fury? If it is, I don't want the floor, I'm just enjoying learning from all of you guys' ?'s and answers!

YEP, You got it, the Partridge Family bus. I thought it would be harder to guess. So do you know what kind of bus in was? Pretty unique even in the 70's. Nolan

Hi,
I don't have the vaguest idea what kind of bus it was, my sister is the one who watched tv, I only caught a glimpse of shows, I still today don't watch much tv, I'd sooner read a book or be in the garage doing anything.
Rich

Now a question, this is getting hard, I'll be back shortly with one.

Old Chevrolet

I'm like you, I never watched the show. Just recently stumbled on to an image of the old bus. I've seen it listed as a 1955 and also a 1957 6700 school bus. I found that a school bus chassis is technically a 6702 series. I think, but I'm not sure, that the 55-57 all looked basically the same(grille,etc.) Here's some images;

I had to google them, sorry. They are responsible for America's first gasoline powered commercial car manufacturers! Why don't we know these names!!

Hi Brian,
Very good & quick. I think because of the popularly of Henry, most of the others who influenced the automotive industry were forgotten.
