It's a Buick LeSabre, either a '69 or '70. I'm leaning toward '69, but could be wrong.
Good, sturdy cars for the most part. I'd imagine most examples had a Buick 350 V-8, but in '69 they offered a 400 or 430 as well, and for '69 a 455. All good engines, and the automatic transmission they used was a good, solid unit. Body and trim parts might be a bit hard to get ahold of though, so if you seek out one, get the nicest example that you can.

The disc wheel style tells me that's a mid-20s Packard Roadster, here's a similar car which is a 1927 Packard 426, a very spiffy car for the era>

I suspect this is a ~1925 Studebaker

More like the Studebaker, definitely not a Packard (note the radiator and hood on the Packard), but the radiator shell on the Studebakers I've found is more rounded on top. But '26-'28 is a good guess for age.

I had a look at some Studebaker pics and I'd have to agree. The radiator cowl and grille is more similar to a Stude than a Packard which had a very distinctive grille (my bad!). The winged radiator cap is also seen on many contemporary Studebakers.
I found only a few photos of them with disc wheels but there could be a million reasons for that. In my defense steel disc wheels like that were very common on 20s Packards.
