Good guess, but that's not it.

'58 or '59 or '60 Mercury. My bet is a '59. Great cars. My neighbour had a new one, blue with the 430 cubic inch V8, which is a bit more than 7 liters.

Consider that a Honda Civic has about a 1.7 liter, 4 cylinder engine.

Those were the days.

Close enough. The license says 1957, and it is a Mercury.

Turnpike Cruiser. What a name from the past. Some of the models had a rear window that electrically rolled down, like a station wagon, but Mercury was the only car that had this feature in a sedan. They kept it for a few years and eventually discontinued it, as if I recall it allowed not only air to go though the passenger compartment, but also, alas carbon monoxide to circulate.

I am relatively new to this forum and please keep posting your car pictures which I find very interesting.

I am in Canada and we have similar informal car shows. A great way to see the fruits of individual , car buff's labour.
