They look like Buicks to me. I can't believe you keep finding these. Hope others enjoy them as much as I do.

The car in the foreground got into a nice crash. Lots of work to do for that man.

I have to grin at seeing the "technician's delicate calibrated adjusting tool" standing on the floor just inboard of the frame horn and spring of the car at center right of the picture.

I don't have much Studebaker info Charley. Your'e probably right about the front car. Looks like spark plugs rather the overhead valves. Here are some Buicks that led me to believe the other cars might be that.

the buick dose not have the same rear fender,door or door handle. also the step in the arm rest. you could be right on the 2 seater.charley

This photo brings to mind the last time I took one of our modern cars to the shop. The mechanic plugged it into his computer, started the engine and had a diagnosis in a minute. Then, with a couple of "point and click" maneuvers he ordered the parts needed, which were delivered to him on the same day.

It would be interesting to see the fellow in the photo's reaction to modern shop methods. He probably just wouldn't believe it.

Once again, thanks Jay! Neat photo.
