Cami, I noticed that you placed the 1952 Muntz on the bottom of your list. I was recently reminded about the Muntz Jet, and I think this unique car would be popular, both for its fine sporty appearance and its association with the most outrageous salesman since P. T. Barnum. As the predecessor to the T-Bird and Corvette, the rare Muntz Jet would be a noteworthy addition.

For those unfamiliar with the car and the "Madman" behind it:

-Hudsons (any year)
-1949 Nash

1950-1959

Took your list and narrowed it down to ones I would be really interested in. A 52 Kaiser would be a biggie since I owned one for 30 years

Whulsey, you were a lucky man, the '52 Kaiser (and the '53 which is almost identical except for the one piece windshield if I am correct) is one of my favorite from the early fifties. Howard Darrin's lines were just beautiful! The Vagabond utility car was a very interesting idea decades before the first SUV appeared. Which model did you own? Too bad the '54-'55 front borrowed from the '51 Buick XP300 dream car never looked nearly as pretty as the '52-'53 was. It is on my top 15-20 list for sure!
