Further Auto Identification

The car in front of the the tterrace identified Pontiac is a 62 Chevy Impala. Thanks, Tony.

Tony's Texas

Great color (Kodacolor, looks like). Great lighting (golden hour). Great clothes - left-hand cousin is quite style-conscious with the peg pants and white socks/dark slacks combo, all very de rigueur for the period, believe me; I wanted to look just like that in high school that back then, but usually I was more like right-hand cousin who, ironically enough, is the one who looks more like someone dressed him today. Finally, great two-tone 1955 or '56 Pontiac 2-door hardtop in maroon & yellow - what a fab color combo! Another winner from Tony.

Fate

It is odd to look at this picture and to know your older cousin's fate. Thanks for posting - this captures the era nicely!
