Skeletons in the Graveyard

Walking a path with shells underneath
Towards old friends dead and gone. 
Looking around lined up sitting alone
Six old tombstones as if something to say.
Lets make it simple between you and me.
Once we were stored indoors, our exteriors in
decent condition.
Towed outside by order of a NPS official
In a need for a maintenance facility.
Step right this way and stand right beside us.
 Thirty eight years outside we have rested for an eternity.
Call out our names cause we are not unidentifiable.
Call out our names so our past is not forgotten.

The vintage vehicles listed below are my guess as to the name and model of each vehicle. When I first started this blog post, I knew nothing about older cars. Now, I can tell you when major changes to grills and headlights of manufacture designs were made. A few of the names may be wrong, please let me know.
