I saw this car in traffic and took a picture with my cell phone, but I have no idea what kind it is. It's large, and looked far better than this pic shows. Anyone know what it is?

It kind of looks like a '50Chevy

I'd guess Pontiac, Buick or Olds. The rear fender doesn't seem right for a Chevy. Pontiac used to have an Indian head hood ornament, Buicks had the 'portholes' along the side. +- 1 on the year.

Looks like a Mercury. Late 40's, early 50's.

Looks like a 1950 (or so) Buick.

ETA: Here's a 1950 Buick. Does this look like the car? It looks a little different from the cell phone picture but I can't tell if it's because it's a different car or if it's the poor image with reflections, etc.

+1 for Buick

Here's another photo of a 1950 Buick Sedan -

I found this photo at the following site (they have tons of cars from the 50s listed by year and make) -

If that '50 Buick isn't it, it's certainly very close! I honestly can't make out my picture well enough to be sure, but you guys have at least given me a real good idea of what it is.
Thanks. [notworthy]

+1 on it being an early '50s GM product, most likely a Buick or Olds, maybe Pontiac or Chevy....not a Cadillac though.

If it's been given the whole leadsled treatment then it might be a bit harder to tell. Taillights, grills, trim get swapped around & modified, rooflines chopped, fenders stretched, etc.
