    Love these pics! Do you think the one with the bonnet open is to boost all the rest?

    Looks like several farther back have the bonnets open as well? All early cars with the early tops and side curtains, lots of white wall tires as well. Neat picture.

    Maybe 1959 then? looks like some Nevada Beige cars in there that I think started in 1959 and early 59 cars also had the non-aluminum side screens. Whitewalls are great if you have someone to clean them:

    She could clean my whitewalls anytime. Oh wait, I don't have any. Well I could always buy some.

    Those are really cool pics. Just boggles my small, car oriented mind to think about so many new, nice Sprites all in one place. Looks like Dauphines in the background of the 2nd picture. They sold nearly 100,000 of those little cars in the states alone in 1959. How times have changed.
