Carspotters' Challenge #37--Olympia Diner

I don't know if the Olympia Diner is in Olympia or not, but it was doing a lively business one evening during the Carter administration.

If it has little jukeboxes at each booth and boomerang-patterned Formica on the tables, it's perfection!See anything good?

Lessee, from L to R, late 70s Camaro, mid 70s Buick Opel (Manta?), 69 Dodge Dart, Ford Fairmont, mid 70s Dodge Monaco/Plymouth Fury, GM A-body wagon (can't tell which kind from that angle, but I were a betting man I'd say it's an Olds Cutlass).

The other 2 in the foreground - I'll guess a 70s Lincoln Continental and a late 70s Chevy Malibu.

It's located on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington, CT

This diner is on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington, Connecticut.

I spotted that Opel Manta right away. The car in the foreground is one of the later Olds Toronados, IMHO
