Niiiiiiiiice Flower Car

Way out back at the limit of my telephoto lens, another Flower Car. Love the wheels.

They don't make cars like this anymore.

A super-rare Hupmobile. Think it's a '34.

Not old, but a cool picture of a cool car.

And finally, my beastie taken from the window of a building we visited.

That's awesome!

The wheels on that 93-96 Flower Car are the base Fleetwood wheels -- what you got if you didn't have the Brougham package. Most commercial cars had them. I like them better than the Brougham wheels personally.

You wouldn't believe how many other cars I missed getting pictures of. While we were outside the Tim Hortons at least 4 cool 60's and 70's cars, plus a totally restored 1930 Ford Model A roadster drove past. We saw 2 totally wild show-quality '55 Chevys on the road as well. The sun was out and so were all the classics.

StingRay, The flower car is a front wheel drive and deVille based from 89-93, not a rear drive 93-96 Fleetwood. Those wheels were optional on deVille and Fleetwood front drivers and they are very attractive.

Yep, those are the same wheels I had on my '92 Sedan deVille.

Never been too fond of Flower Cars, but I'd drive that before an El Camino (Saw an El Camino-style 1970 Eldorado once, it LOOKED like a Funeral Vehicle)

Really cool photos. You're lucky to have seen all those beauties.

I saw a Bel Air today, since I finally have my car back and can drive again, but since I don't own a Camera, I couldn't get photos. Oh well, it was ugly anyhow.

I can't keep looking at nice cars for these with FOR SALE signs, they give me devious thoughts about all the abandoned driveways on my street at the houses nobody lives in.

These photos make me homesick.

Damn, I'd buy the ambulance if it was for sale. Beautiful cars!

nice man...on my drive up home this weekend I saw many nice cars but I didn't stop to get pics :(

I told my girlfriend that we'd have to take a roadtrip one day and just get pics of all the cool cars!

And I love the overhead pics of caddies, they really show how massive and classy they are

I bet you heard sirens every time she approached right?

Here's some more neat vehicles from other drives out in the country.
This Buick is just gorgeous.

Cars from Above?

Good idea, I'll get one of my car and we can all laugh at my crappy vinyl.

As much as I would prefer to disassociate myself from this webpage, it is the only source of images of Hearses from above that I am aware of...YET...

Dull, here is the website for the professional car society. I was a member several years ago when I owned a 78 Fleetwood Limousine. There are lots of hearse pictures.

Great pictures! I lived in Burlington, Ontario for 5 years from 1988 to 1993 and still go back regularly to visit my wife's parents (now I live in Lynden, WA, on the west coast, where the climate is perfect for cars). It seems a tough place on cars, with all the salt on the roads in the winter! Looks like you can still find good cars that have either been lovingly restored, or that have been tucked away for the winter. Great pictures, and the Tim Horton's picture sure brings back memories.
