Classics in Slides

While perusing ebay for vintage slide images for a project, I'm running across some interesting cars that I think are worth sharing. Neat thing about slides is that they're originals and can be used any way the new owner wishes. They're especially cool if you know where the car is now.

 

Often the photogs are pretty decent using good cameras, sometimes not so much. Don't be put off by the low-res scans used by sellers, they'll tell you if it's a clear, crisp image or not. They're normally listed pretty pathetically ("Old Car") and go under the radar. 

 

Forest Park, 1952

Rolls-Royce P1 Ascot Tourer. Note the curved uptick

where the rear fender meets the running board. The only

contemporary image I can find with that trait is from a 2003

Motor Trend piece on Rolls-Royce at the Peterson.

Same car?
