Another Beetle, but a little older than Mike's example. Parked in front of a school in my neighborhood.

Kodachrome
Extra points for identifying the (reasonably common) car. Shot made 1972, narrows the field a bit.

My first thought was an early Porsche 911. Not sure about that mirror though.

Mirror is factory stock. Maybe this car is not quite as common as I thought it was and led people to believe. DOHC. Maybe that will help

E-Type would have a chrome strip running along the crest of the fender where the panels join, also it’s wipers parked the other direction and there were three of them. This car is Italian. I thought the sharp crease atop the fender would give it away, guess it’s not that easy.

Ah, I was not visually interpreting that as a crease, but rather light passing between the A-pillar and the mirror (now I see it, along with the reflection in the chrome mirror housing). I have a feeling that I'm going to be disappointed in myself when you reveal the answer, especially after giving up more information.

A crease in that area makes me think of an Alfa Romeo GTV or a Lancia Fulvia. But the Alfa wipers both collapsed in the middle of the windscreen and the I don't think that the Lancia's hood extended all the way back. A more common car would likely be a Fiat, but I'm not that familiar with them. Good grief.

It’s the “Poor Man’s Alfa”, the GTV copy, a series I Fiat 124 Sport coupe, 1.5 liter DOHC Lampredi, ex-Ferrari, designed engine. A potent, tossable screamer in its day, most have since fallen prey to the ravages of the marque’s Fix It Again Tony disease. As far as the photo goes, a GTV would have been the most reasonable guess. I probably should have identified the car and asked to identify the film stock, which would have been much easier, as nothing looks like Kodachrome.
Thanks for playing

I think you went about it right. Even if a bit frustrating, that was entertaining.

It totally foxed me, a great selection and shot!

I had the second generation Fiat Coupe which still used the Lampredi engine. Such a sonorous wee beastie, if inclined to conk out at lower revs if stereo and air-con on at the same time. Very disconcerting as you came up to a roundabout and put your foot down to find it just stopped. A pointed finger when changing gear to switch off the air con did the trick.

Well, since Larry started the whole bonus points thing, extra bonus points for anyone who can identify this (highly uncommon) car.

Thanks. I've been on a bit of a hiatus from photography. Just dipping a toe back in the water....

Stumped. Guessing Japanese, 2000’s time frame. Looks like a Mitsubishi 3000GT of some sort, but not one I have seen. Nissan something. Lots of distinct styling cues, (too many, which is why it looks Japanese) but I give up. For now.

It's a Ferrari 348 US model.

I used to live round the corner from the main London Ferrari dealership so it's not that uncommon to me!

The Testarossa side strakes should have given it away, I just couldn’t match them up with a lesser variant.
Nice job.

I considered the possibility it might be a Testarossa body kit on a Pontiac Fiero, but it lacks the long front and rear overhangs that usually give away the rebody's heritage.

Wow, we have a winner!

To be more specific, it's a 1993 Ferrari 348TB Serie Speciale. Only 100 were made for the US market, and apparently only 35 were the TB coupe model. The other 65 were TS targa styles. I saw the car in a local hotel parking lot, and didn't know its rarity until I went home and did a little research. Probably the rarest car I'll ever photograph, at least out in the wild, so to speak. There are some other color styling cues, but I only had black and white film loaded. This one was Ferrari's distinctive rosso corsa red.

A good one Doubalister! (I would say that). Here's another for the assembled car nuts to have a crack at.

Definitely a Plymouth. Beyond that I had to rely on a bit of googling and it looks like a Plymouth Belvedere from the 50s.

Sneaky using the rear end - very few photos out there!

1956 Plymouth. I had a 55 hardtop for a few years, very similar but lower fins.

Thanks, Charles and Doug!

I couldn't tell if it was a 1956 Belvedere, Savoy, or Plaza. I think this one must have had some body work done, because all the photos I've seen have the gas cap on the body panel of the right tail fin. That threw me for a loop.

Yes - the clue is in the plate mention of Rod and the swirls on the paintwork - definitely bodywork has been done.

^^1959 Cadillac... unique appearance for this year, and has become iconic of the era. When I was a teen our family had a similar-bodied 1959 Chevrolet Belair which also had distinctive tailfins.

Yes indeed Doug, I knew it would be unchallenging. I have many more to come of greater difficulty, but not tonight. Moving home for a few days!

Another rear quarter photo. "The new Pontiacs are in early this year!!" Rolleiflex 2.8C, Fuji Acros 100, Rodinal 1:50

Nighttime, lots of ambient streetlights.

No, I didn't buy the car.

The early-60's Pontiac Tempest had an interesting mechanical "experiment"... a long slender driveshaft running in a long curved housing from the engine to a rear transaxle and independent rear suspension. The standard motor was a slant-four derived from the 389 V-8 from the "full size" cars, IIRC. But there was also a new aluminum 3.5 liter V8 shared with other GM compacts and the British Rover. Interesting times!

The "rope drive" if I remember correctly.
