I do not regard myself as a car expert, but I would think that the fancy spokes belong to a Cadillac, not a Ford Galaxie.

I like these pictures you've taken, the odd angles and rust. I would say neither... the beautiful wheel deserves neither. The wheel-cover is the 'classic'.

I can' tell about the first one because E & G provides aftermarket accessories for almost every auto make and models but the Ford Galaxie badge could be from about 1964-ish era. The Cadillac script has been used for many years unchanged...this one reminds me of a mid-80s Coupe de Ville or old Seville.

Great mystery. Fun post!!

You're a puzzler today, my friend.

It certainly should be the Cadillac, but that seems too easy, so I wonder if you're having fun teasing us...but...

Yeah, Cadillac...

Have a great, if puzzling, day!

What a stark contrast to the softer nature photos of late. I would not have guessed that these would have caught brattcat's eye. You are full of surprises.

I don't think Galaxie's had spokes like that, so I'll say Cadillac...final answer! Ha-ha!

I visited when there were two comments on the board and had absolutley no idea. I still have no idea. They seem to be from different vehicles.

I, too, think that BC has let in a subbie for this post!!

Not so, Julie. I LOVE machinery of all sorts. Particularly farm equipment.

Sorry, I am lost even with all these comments already here!

Thank God we have some experts!!

The clean shiny spokes don't seem to match the well seasoned Caddillac emblem. I really like the patina on the emblem. This was fun reading all the comments on your quizzer.
