Although the closest Beetle looks to be a '67 so I know it's not but it's kind of cool to think that this was taken at the time my great aunt, living in Atlanta, was driving her second Beetle, a '64 sunroof.

I think it is a '67. I zoomed in as much as possible. Headlamps can appear to be the sloped '66 due to the lighting near the top, but the car clearly has the wide rear track which started with the '67. Also, the Squareback "above" the '67 looks to have the large headrests, indicative of a '68 which would've been available in late '67 already.

Anyone notice how many of these cars are 2-doors? Endangered species.

I was distracted by all 4 Japanese makers "sports" models in one pic, and how tiny the B-210 looks in front of the Chev truck, and how big the bug looks compared to the Civic behind it and Camaro in front, lots going on there.

That Chevy truck is doing a very good job of disguising itself as an Econoline van. Wink

Excluding the Cadillac and station wagons, it looks like every other car in the picture is a 2-door. Shocked

Considering the amount of damage to the two cars, the damage to the bus looks light by comparison, especially the front end/bumper of the bus.
It almost looks as if the bus dropped from the sky onto the cars. Laughing The front of the bus certainly didn't do all that damage to the Pontiac.

My guess at what happened: ... the bus was far enough back from the Pontiac that when that American iron rear-ended it, it hit hard enough to lift the front of the bus so that the bumper cleared the Pontiac for the most part, and the bus undercarriage did most of the damage.
