The one on the right seems to be a mid '70s Pontiac Grand Prix, the one on the left looks like a 1972 Mustang.

The Pontiac is a 1973 Grand Am with the grille inserts removed or painted black.

The Mustang on the left is almost certainly a 1972. There's not enough showing to ID a model.

The Pontiac on the right is a 1973 Grand Am.

Thanks! THe mustang is a 1971 Cobra Jet

Assuming you are correct about the year (tough to tell from that photo, 71/72 were basically identical), the car is a 1971 Mustang Mach 1 with the (fairly rare) stripe delete as evidenced by the chrome trim on the lower bumper - Mach 1s with hockey-stick stripes had no molding there. The stepped lip on the wheel indicates it has the optional 15x7 Magnum 500 wheel package. If you say it had a Cobra Jet, as a '71 it could have either had a 351CJ (Q-code) or a 429CJ, although it's more probable it was the 429CJ variant as the 351CJ was an uncommon late-'71 option.
