Carspotters' Challenge #86--German Tourists

This is Tomlinson's Restaurant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, just off US 41 and just east of US 27, around 1960 or so, and there's lots of big old American iron...and a few other things.

The red car, fourth from the left, should be a 1959 Rambler. We used to have a green station wagon version of that car.

From the left, a '51 or '52 Chev., a '57 Ford, a '59 Chev., the Rambler, a Mercedes, a Messerschmit (or a BMW Isetta), A '58 Dodge, a '59 Ford. In the back, a 58 or '59 Mercury, maybe a '57 Buick station wagon.
