I wonder what the white wagon is beside the 64 Galaxie - I was thinking Datsun 510, but that's not it. Maybe a Rootes group car?
Small car driving is a Datsun Bluebird, I think.

That white wagon has me stumped too. But the next 4 are all Ford; a '64 Galaxy, about a '66 Falcon, a TBird ('66 also I think) and a '57. Beyond that is a 2nd gen Corvair.

I think the white wagon is a Datsun but the taillights are wrong for a 510, perhaps a late 60s Bluebird.

What is that big dark red/maroon car way over to the left side of the picture?
Looks like a big 70's Impala to me.

Looks like a Datsun wagon but lights are not quite right. I wonder if it was local production under license or some sort of knock-off (popular in China and Taiwan)

My first guess was '75 Caprice Classic, but that's too new for the pic.
My best guess (and that's all it is) would be a '63-64 full-size Buick, probably an Electra 225.

Interesting, the photo shows the location of a U.S. Navy NCO Club in Taipei, Taiwan.

Hmmm. The BB Club sign is in Korean and English. I would say the photo was taken in Korea.

Needless to say, I don't know Chinese from Korean or Swahili but someone is pretty sure that the photo is of Taiwan.

Well, at least I feel better about not recognizing that white station wagon on the right; it was probably never sold here in the US of A.
