Identification of star cars in old photos

I have several old photos of old cars that my family owned and I'm looking for help identifying what they are - my dad is 86 and thought one or more of them were "Star Cars" - and I was wondering if there was someone I could send the couple pictures (1 or 2) to get help identifying them.

My grandfather also owned a Chandler, but that was easy to identify and my dad was sure on that identification.

If you can scan the pictures and post on the forum, I am sure someone will identify the cars.

Terry:

when you photograph: Take the front head on, same with the right and left side and the rear. Take a close up of the "hub cap" it may have a logo on it. Look for the Vehicle ID plate in the engine compartment and photograph that, it will help identify the car. Also photograph the area around the radiator cap, again, there may be a logo in that area.

as Gordon indicated, with several photos, there is bound to be one of our members that can identify the vehicle

good luck
