This is a 1936 Plymouth coupe. These were available in a Rumble Seat coupe, a regular coupe and a business coupe.

Excellent picture.

Check out the hood ornament on that Plymouth....I would say it's a representation of the Mayflower...the ship that landed on Plymouth Rock. In fact, Plymouth did have a Mayflower model at one time.

Yes, you're quite right. The hood ornament features a rear view of the Mayflower. I did take a close-up of the hood ornament too.

Oh, they still are. Especially, if you consider Plymouth was always a budget car. Not bad for a budget car!

Nice composition. I think the only disappointment is the washed out colours - some of which comes from the grey sky, but some from the 18-55 lens - at least that is the problem I have with it. Bit of a love hate relationship since it is my only lens wider than 28mm.

They best car I ever owned was a 1968 Plymouth Satellite. One of the worse cars I ever owned was a 1973 Plymouth Satellite Sebring. Go figure

Beautiful, and the low angle, with the grey clouds, gives it the majesty it deserves!
