With the short chrome pieces on top of the fenders, I am thinking 41 Chevy, but could be others.

Yeah, those chrome strips look as if they're atop the headlight housings as on 1940s Chebbies.

Thanks for the help!!! I believe it to be a 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe 2-Door Sedan. can't be a 40' because the head light looks to be embedded deeper in the fender and the 40' the headlight sets higher and the turn signal is beside it. Thanks again.. JIM

Looks like a Chevy Biscayne ca. 1968-69

It could just be the angle, lighting, or whatever, but they look like two different cars to me The one in the snow looks like it has chrome at the B-pillar area, unless that's just the lighting playing tricks with me. It makes me think of a '68-72 Chevy Nova. But the other one, in the family shot with the burgundy car in view, is definitely a '68 Chevy fullsize. Could be a Biscayne or Bel Air. I'm pretty sure the Impala coupes were all hardtop by that time.
My grandparents had a '68 Impala 4-door hardtop that they gave to my Mom in 1972, and then she traded in 1975 for a new LeMans. I vaguely remember the '68. My memory recalls it as a bright bluish-green color, but I found an old pic of it awhile back, which showed it to be more green than blue.
BTW, if anyone cars, that burgundy car looks like an '81-82 Malibu.

I'm trying to identify the make/model & year of this car to date it and try to identify the people. The Year of the car will help me rule In/Out certain people. The rounded front hood is unusual."
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Almost certainly a Franklin, late teens by the looks of it.
Here is a 1918 model

I'd agree with that---definitely a Franklin and probably spanning the years of WW I, given the fashions depicted.
