The yellow car is a Morris Minor and the dark coloured car is 33 - 34 Ford, could be a V8 or the Modle B

Looking a bit closer, I feel that the Ford is a British Y or C? type, you know one of those puny unloved British Fords. But it really does not matter.

She certainly isn't puny. So should be the Ford I8 or Model B - 4 cyl or 8, 1933-34 (Model 40A). Matters to me alright since I can't afford even this.

You are right, she is not puny, the grill is big, but the headlights do not SEEM to match. Did you notice the Minor SEEMS to be a convertible?

The British Fords didn't have this kind of a grille. Both the Y and the C are distinctly different from what is pictured.

And the Morris is a convertible as seen but only a close examination of the car will tell if it is a factory convertible or has been altered at a later date.
