That would be the 1954 Buick Wildcat.  Are you sure this thread is where you want to post this?

I think is a good looking car.  

 

The car in the foreground is the Olds F-88. In the background are the GM Futureliners.  

 

Too bad Mazda is tied in with Ford. GM could rebadge a Miata and make an updated version of that. Probably make a pretty nice car.

That was a pretty hard hit considering it was not a direct hit. Wonder if GEICO would declare a total loss and how would they determine the value. They would probably let you keep the salvage. In any event, Matt, wishing you the best. Glad you were not hurt

Yes . The late 50's to mid 60' BMC Farina range.  Austin 6 cylinder & Morris & Riley Wolseley clones

The same body shell was used for a Vanden Plas with a 6 cylinder Rolls Royce engine

Looks like a styling design studio mock up to compare tail light designs before settling on the final version.

With that center of gravity, I'm betting this "race car" ( that's What the numbers are for, right?) Really corners well.
