Vintage pics? Anyone? The more I see the more I get into the photos.

You can pretty much always tell a Packard by its distinctive radiator shell. We had one of their trucks at a show a couple of years ago that had a 600:1 differential for pulling stumps.
Is/was that your car?
Not that I know of. However, with only 250 Cabrios made in 1955, anything is possible. Cabs are much more rare than Speedsters and Coupes.
Kind of vintage. This is my car in 1966, when the last owners bought it. Look at the reflection on the side of the car.

GrandMa, standing proudly next to her son's.... well, yet again, I don't know what car that is.

Looks like someone either needs a new gas cap, or some practice at the pump. :p
That used to come from poorly vented gas tanks and fuel expansion once it comes out of the ground at around 50°.
That car's been converted to a floor shifter, as was common for hot-rodding. That's the remnants of the column shifter.
I don't get what they do. You can just barely see one on the driver's side rear. Weird.
This one pictured below?

Windows are sure dealt with differently, that's for sure
Apparently it's an Austin. I was right, it looks like a screened in porch.:(

I do. My first job was pumping gas and changing oil at my uncle's Milt's Standard station on 8-mile in Detroit. Self-serve didn't exist at that time.

She is cute.

What kind of pick-up is that? You can see the stick shift knob in the foreground; what's that attached to the steering column?

You know you're old when you consider your pictures "vintage".

Our Prom car. I'm sure I've told the story of that car.
