This is a Howard 500, one of only 2 still flying, it was loosely based on a modified Lockheed PV-1 Ventura, but used only a few parts from that airplane, the rest was all new metal. The wing center section (which itself was modified) was about all that was used from the PV-1. It got a new fuselage, new wings and new tail feathers.

The Oakland Airmotive Centaurus was a modified Lockheed PV-2 Harpoon.
Nice shot though.
