That is one stern looking mother-in-law.  Kinda reminds me of my grandma Shipman (my poor mother!).

She is probably thinking " Tonight I get the back seat in the Roadmaster!"

Not a very clear photo but this is my 1929-54CCX around 1951/52 during a tour of the south-west (Western Australia). The owners had just purchased the car due to being posted as a school headmaster in the country in 1951 and wanted a car "with legs" for the long country drives. The caravan was hand made by the owners. I have an advertisements in 1954 with the car & caravan for sale as a pair at the town of Merredin after they traded them on an Austin van.

He's probably wishing that there was something a whole lot stronger than coffee in his cup.

Lamar, i don`t think it is a 36 Buick, grille is different, no Buick 8 badge, has a crank hole, missing the two outer heavy vertical ribs, not enough cross ribs. `36 didn`t have suicide doors, except down-under sloper, looks to be right hand drive. Front fenders(no whiskers), fenders look more like a Chrysler product. How about that trailer hitch on the front? Is that a water bag under the left headlight?  Could it be a down-under `36 Oldsmobile?1936 Oldsmobile F.36 Sedan | Olds Motor Vehicle Co. was foun… | Flickr

Actually i don`t think it`s an Oldsmobile, U.S. ones have a V-notch on each side of the grille, headlight high. Could the down-under grilles be slightly different? Fenders and crank hole look similar.

Unlike today's cars which can be recognized by make and model a mile away.
