More pix of classic cars from the DBKP Labor Day weekend Road Trip #2 to Wheeling WV and Washington PA.

This time, intrepid DBKP Resident Motor Man, RidesAPaleHorse, helped identify the vehicles in the pictures. He was stumped by photo #2 below. Any readers out there that know the answer?

Leave your best guess in the comments section at the end of this post.

Not sure about this one at all. Thirties vintage. Can't see the front. It IS what they used to call a "5 window coupe" though. My best guess......Chevrolet or Dodge.

1964 Ford Galaxie 500 with "Thunderbolt" style hood. Can't see the badge on the lower left front 1/4 but probably a 390 cu. in. That badge was reserved for the 390 and 427 engine options. Earlier models also had the same badge with "406"

1967 Shelby Cobra, looks like a clone. Not many of these originals Cobras left, most survivors are million dollar cars now. LOTS of clones around though and some are hard to tell from the originals without opening the hood. The original car built by Carroll Shelby (67 427) was equipped with a 427 cu. in. Ford "side oiler" although some clone builders were lucky enough to find one of the old original engines.. Absolutely KILLER automobile.

1971/72 Pontiac GTO

1972 Olds Cutlass Supreme
