Usually, there’s only one car running per night, though if it’s not the one you want, you can ask nicely if they’ll bring out the other one for you. We tried the Chevy, though Dick, the Cannery Pier chauffeur, normally prefers the Studebaker (more power for racing around the streets of Astoria).
Your other options for getting to the town center aren’t bad, either – you can walk along the Columbia River, under the Astoria-Megler Bridge, or get the tram. But obviously the Chevy is best. Also, a million times more stylish than the look-at-me Mercedes/BMWs/Rollers that most luxury hotels tend to break out, but that's another story.
