After googling I see it was Albert Champion, and not Alfred.......It's like I always say, I'm no Alfred Einstein. haha.

OK, next question:

Name these two auto racing legends.

One of them is one of the Chevrolet boys, but it's not Gaston on the left, nor is it Louis on the right.

You're darn close though......

By the way, these may be the first Buicks to have portholes.

OK, looks like there isn't much interest in my last question. In an effort to avoid killing this thread (again) I would like to ask a different question instead...

By the way, here is the answer to the last question:



Next question:

What is the year and make of this car?

What car

Oh "bleep!"

I KNOW the answer! I have seen that "logo" - I'm not sure if I have seen it "in person" or if I've only seen pix of it, but I HAVE seen that before!

Now if only my ol' grey cells would cooperate and let me find that piece of memory....

I must have googled a hundred photos of cars from 60-64 and never found it.

That cropped photo of the front corner is wild! Absolutely wild styling!
