Hi Richard, will you educate me? Is that a Champion at the left and a Commander to the right?

No educating needed - you got them both right (the right one could be a President too - hard to tell from the front - although Mr. Quinn could probably do that).

That would have been some kind of job - all you have to do all day is drive brand new cars off the assembly line to where ever they were needed on the grounds of the factory - 70 year old jealousy...

Richard another great picture. It would have been interesting to stand at the end of this line about in tne position of the photographer and watch these cars come off of the line. These pictures are intriguing and the comments my forum members appreciated. Thanks

That '40 Commander looks a lot like my dad's '39, except for the slightly different grille and the headlights. Even as a little kid, I could appreciate the beautiful ride that car gave. I wouldn't mind owning that car right now.

Look at the face of the guy in the commander. He's not driving it...he's staging it. [:p]
When the tree drops he'll peel out.
