I didn't notice headlights and bumpers ,the Cord has folding head lights and bumpers similar to early mopar,,I think this is a 39 or 40 Humpmobile because of grille and headlights,

not sure but I think these were made after Cord closed down manufacturing ,and the graham comes in there somewhere

God I love retirement.

John you got it. They are Huppmobile Skylarks. Only 211 made from 1940-41. built with Cord body parts they were the last Hupps.

OK guys, what was the smallest chrysler Hemi engine and what make and model did it come out in.

Probably too easy for you guys but I think it is interesting.

Mr Norm Grand Spaidwin Dodge
Brand X also had eliminator Boss Etc,
But for the GTO there was also a Tuner/Builder who built this very special car
Who was it, and what was the name of the GTO

The picture doesn't show it very well but the hurst wheels are GOLD plated real gold

Well since Chrysler is owned by Fiat now and Fiat and Daimler are bot European cars so Chrysler is almost a European car you might considder Daimler and Chrysler "cousins"

LOL, Nice try. Daimler sold Chrysler about 6 years ago. It is now an Indian Company.

Are you talking about Jim Wangers and the GeeTO Tiger? If so Wangers was a AD Man who worked with Delorean promoting the GTO. GM had offically backed out of "racing" but Wangers is the guy that made everyone know the the GTO was a performer.

After thinking about iy I should have not posted a gold car,that was probably misleading,

The answer I was looking for was Royal Pontiac
and the car was The Royal Bobcat,,because of the picture I think you are right

it is your floor

Nah! I didn't get it. Ask another one. Now that you gave us the answer I remember Royal Pontiac. I was working for Livingston Pontiac in So. Cal and every so often we'ed get a car in from Royal Pontiac. They had purple licence plate frames.
Ask another one.
