Those WERE the good 'ol days!!!  Wish we had a Time Machine... what a great pic!!!

My now elderly Aunt had a '74 Monaco wagon in Dk Green metallic, no wood grain, 440cu in

I loved that car, never seen one since.

Is the third car on the top a Ford?  The tail lights look Ford to me....

No, it's a Gran Fury, look at the body and roof lines, they are all identical... the tail lights were different on the 3 models, but the Gran Fury's almost the same as the Dodge, the Chrysler's is horizontally oriented. the one on top left is a Monaco, the light is vertical and divided in 2, the Gran Fury on the top right just has a emblem in the center of the light... I've been into these last big C body wagons since they were new... I had 4 of the predecessor '71-73s, but never had a later 74-77 one, and improvements were made...please find me one!! .... Chris??

that was a big deal back then....special batteries that could stand the tilt, bottles designed to hold the fluids when vertical, they put some thought into it....

A Vega - put a built 350 in it and you have a screaming machine!  (They didn't rust out here.)
