Oh for the days when one could identify a car blocks away and often times when only the slightest portion of it could be seen.  This photo is proof of that.  All who look at it, will know immediately it's a _______________ !  Miss those days!

It's a 1959 Cadillac

Fun idea for a series, George!

Of course!  Sadly, show a small section of any car produced in the last 40 years, and you'd have more luck winning the lottery than identifying the car.  Smile

@georgeschire 

I recognized that very quickly. Today I often have to look at name on car or logo on the car to be sure what it is.

@ed-davis I agree with you ED. Also even trying to read them can be difficult in the way they are designing emblems.

Frankly many of the new names they’ve given cars today make little or no sense to me!🤔

Most cars today don't have their names on them, except maybe on the trunk.  And since most cars look alike, there's no way to rattle of makes and years of cars like we could when we were kids.  Cars today may be more economical and efficient from motor and performance perspective, they are bland and boring to look at.  Not say that all have no personality, but the ones that do, are far and few between.  In the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's though, each car usually had it's own identity and look.

That's a good one George. How about IDing a car by its tire and hubcap?

You beat me to answering it, but that was my answer immediately when I saw the hubcap.  Oh for the days...  Smile
