Two roadside NC roses

I have noticed these two roses on the sides of local roads. Any ideas what they might be?

Are they both once-blooming ramblers (most of the roadside roses I find around here are.)?

Rose #1 looks like the rambler Dr. W. Van Fleet.

Rose #2 could be Excelsa or a related rambler.

It seems like they are. Thank you so much for suggestions. I will try to see if they match. Thank you!

For #2, you might also want to check out Turner's Crimson Rambler.
#2 is going to be more complicated IF you've had overcast days leading up to the hour you took the photo. Pinks grade into reds and our sunlight can make a real difference in color.
