Question multi-ID guessing time!

Seeing as I haven't made a fun post in a few weeks, you're in for a treat. In a stack of printed photos (hundreds) shown earlier this week, I saw numerous oddities and present them for your enjoyment.

Start off with an easy ID, ok?




This one was made running easily enough, then sold, moving from TX to FL around '90. Quite solid. Wonder if it still exists?

Keeping it easy-peazy for a moment:



Sold at auction from a closed museum in the Midwest.

Mid range level of difficulty. This happens to be my favorite picture of this set.



*cough cough*

What's that? Need it a little larger? Fine.



Picture was taken from a yard in OK or KS in the late '80s. All of the cars were scrapped!

Onwards to a tough nut; with a degree of difficulty that may require Loftin-esque depth of knowledge:



Yes, it has jump seats. Yes, this is from the same yard as above where everything was scrapped.

52 or 53 S&S.It was around in the late 90's as I left Florida for NC....If memory serves me correct this car was an endloader with a full flip bench seat in the rear as the FD that ordered wanted it as a family "road" car. I never saw interior pix to verify this but the last owner I knew of was a retired designer for GM and knew cars very well.


The flower car belonged to Pat Patten? a former PCS member.....I think this car was shown in Tulsa years ago.....Loftin would know if this is the car....

Addicted yet? Want bonus points that only count as bragging rights? Name all these clips that went on to become couches:

Honestly, the limo stumps me. I'd never seen wrap around glass previously either.

Wouldn't a '60 convertible have the same fin shape as a '60 Coupe? They're oh-so-close; with one lacking molding holes.
