Question type: General

Can you help me identify the make, model &  
approximate year of this white car? I'm sorry the
photo is blurry. I looked at photos online and
thought it was an old Chevrolet.

That is not much to go on but it does not look very old to me.

It looks to me like a 1972 grand torino

The lower window line in the photo is straight unlike the Torino.

Ya, I was focused on the rear window not the side

It is a fast back. To me it resembles a Cadillac STS.

Thank you for all the answers. It was a road rage incident. I beeped my horn at the guy once & he got out of his car and theatened to drag me out. Just screamed at me for 10 minutes & sped off. I grabbed my phone but couldn't pull the camera feature up fast enough to get a good photo. Of course my rear view mirror blocked his license plate number. I was filling out the incident report & wanted to provide an approximate make/model. Thought I might get lucky & get a My Cousin Vinny type scenario with the blurry photo. It was not a new car... I tried to Google old white 4 door sedans looking for a match on that certain back window. The front of the car was pretty non-descript... But not rounded or boxy. The Torino is too stylish for this vehicle. It didn't have the same side body/door details. Anyway thank you all for your guesses. My first time using this site.

I just looked up the Crystler 300. Pretty car. Much too new & flashy for the one he was driving. The paint job was dull. Front of the car was more narrow & I didn't notice any chrome except the door handle.

Actually... Now that I look at it the front of the car looked similar to that Torino picture but the side of the car was flat. Also the side windows were level & didn't slope upward.

BTW, I beeped at him because he was pulling out of his parking space without looking and almost hit me. Not that it's important but this was unprovoked.

I'll look those two cars up online & see it they're the ones. @oldstorqnpower Yes you would think a guy that size would de-escalate when he saw I was a woman. Not many cars that old driving around Seattle. Thanks again.

When I looked up the 1978 Chevy Citation (not it... Too short & sporty) I also saw the 1978 Citation Club Coupe. The outline of the car is exactly like the one the guy was driving but without any chrome or side strip detail. It was off white & plain. I think mid to late 70's has to be the range. All the cars I googled from the 80's look too "new."

A few years back I accidently cut a guy off on the blind side of my van,,, next thing I see the guy was beside me franticly beeping his horn // when I looked over at him the dude was waving a gun at me .. thank God the guy could lip read because I keep saying " I'm sorry , I'm sorry"

The car is too angular to be anything vintage. I'm still seeing a mid 2000's Cadillac. I could even agree it might be a Chrysler 300, but those tend to be boxier than this. There isn't anything the police can do without a license plate number. This might be a good time to consider getting a windshield mounted camera though. They've gotten pretty affordable.

@Tom You are a very lucky man. What was that guy thinking?! He wanted to teach you a lesson? Not someone who should have a gun permit. Cutting someone off hardly justifies killing someone. I don't think for a minute that beeping my horn once had anything to do with this guy spinning out of control so fast. He actually pulled his car across both lanes to block me in. I think the guy in the crowd who distracted the guy prob saved my life. This is new territory for me. I regret being too scared to reach for my phone to call the police. I think it would have made him crazier even if that's what you're supposed to do. I visited every business on that street the next day looking for witnesses. A pizzeria's cameras had full view of the incident. Unfortunately the owner is the only one with access to the tapes & was out of the country this week. I'm going there tonight to see if he's back. Thank you @KenF. I never thought I would need a windshield mounted camera but I think I'll act on your suggestion. Thanks also for the Cadillac guess but the front & end weren't that long. I Googled Cadillacs from each decade & this car was much shorter. It also didn't have as much style in the body. I was staring at it for 10 minutes. The picture I saw of the Chevrolet Citation Club Coupe had the same rear window profile & overall shape. The only thing missing was the decorative strip down the side. The only chrome was on the door handle & thin window panes. The body of the Club Coupe changed when I pulled up the 1980 model. Either that or the owner of that car had features added. I know without a license plate # the police won't do anything. Submitting the report is for my peace of mind. If I can talk the pizzeria owner into helping me, I can attach the video. I'm not sure if the license plate was visible from that angle. We'll see...

I Guess that I should have mentioned where the incident happened ... it was in Miami AKA Dodge City on Milan Dairy Rd (just outside the airport) I liked Miami but things happened fast there. I lived in Florida 3 times and living In South Dade county (Cutler Ridge) was still my favorite
