I'll bet that VWGUY4EVER doesn't see one of these roll into the service bays every day. I have no idea what this is or how old it is. Can anyone put any facts to it? I could imagine guys in black leather raincoats getting out of this car...

Sorry for the dark pic - I took it this morning and it was pretty overcast.

Looks similar to a '53 180 or a '54 220. I'd have to guess it's a 180 (if I had to guess).
That old? I thought maybe early '60's. If I can catch a better shot of it, I'll post it.

Yes, that old. IIRC, the front lights of early-60's M-Bs were bigger, and the cars also had "fins" on the rear corners just like old Caddys are notorious for.

Where in Pittsburgh did you see this? It may be coming to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, with all it's dead-guy-in-the-trunk-smell glory. :thumbup:
I've seen this car around for close to a year, but this was the first time I had a camera with me. Believe me, it's not here for the Vintage Grand Prix - the car is rough, and the house it parks in front of is even rougher.

But speaking of the VGP, I gotta say, this is my favorite time of the year. You never know what you'll see on the roads. Last week, I spied a few original Mini's, and there's a XKE floating around my area, too. I love those old cars!
