Keukenhof car park!

By TrevBatWCC    
Wandering around another of Keukenhof's indoor pavilions, Oranje Nassau, I came across this old car. It seemed an odd place to find a car, amongst all the floral displays, shops and cafes in the building, but had to grab a photograph. I had to fight off other visitors, who kept standing alongside it to be photographed by their other halves! I've no idea of the car's make or model, despite uploading the image onto Google's image search function, or by browsing dozens of car badges on the internet. If anyone out there knows what it is, I'd be pleased to know, but no prizes for guessing!

Many thanks to Diane (Fefe) and Savvas for their User Awards on my previous upload Bloomin , most appreciated Smile

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile

Many thanks to Joop for identifying the make and model of the car, a 1955 Chrysler New Yorker St. Regis Deluxe two door hardtop

It looks like it might be advertising use as a wedding car surrounded by all those ribbons and flowers. Yukky colour though. Smile

Always thought those two-tone cars looked classy. Was an optional extra many years ago, along with chrome bits instead of black things.

Glad you got it ID'd, Trev, love that bonnet mascot. I agree with SlowSong about being a wedding car, maybe?
Beautiful old car, blends in with the colours on the floral display Trev. Excellent processing and a great image.

It does seem a bit away from where you might expect to come across it.........and I haven'y a clue as to ID.
Bit it does make for an unusual image, Trev.

Unusual floral 'prop' but makes for a good subject.
Super capture of this iconic 'auto' Trev - gotta love the matching roses.
