      John; the wagon is undoubtedly an "ordinary" Special 4-door wagon with heavy center "B" pillar, as seen by looking through the windshield in the photo to the right side (the other side) of the car.

      You're right; a Century wagon would have no "B" pillar and would be called a Caballero, as would a 1958 Special Riviera 4-door hardtop wagon. (1958 was sure an odd year for General Motors station wagon nomenclature.) BP

        As a recent visitor to the park..it's only a few hours down (up?) the road...I'm not sure where that is.
        But I agree, I wouldn't want to be behind a slow car.
        I guess its an Austin A50 or A55.

              Bob,

              It is definitely a hardtop wagon. The thin chrome window frames are a giveaway, and what appears to be a 'B' pillar on the opposite side is someone wearing dark clothing standing next to the car.

                        Specifically a '54 to '56 A50.

                          Really cool. I suppose the participants make the parade, but don't you need an audience, too? I know it's the middle of the day, but seems rather sparsely attended, despite the banner promoting it. I've seen better attended parades in Liberty, Utah!

                            • The bus photo looks like it was taken somewhere out west (Palm trees, Route 66) any idea where this is?

                              Can you imagine how much money GM had tied up in building and running those busses, hard to believe they would go bankrupt 50 years later.

                                Unless it went to Sweden, here is another one. A VERY expensive restoration!! http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ht=futureliner
