    Chris, thank you for that awe inspiring photo of the elephants of Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey parading down Pulaski Highway in Baltimore in 1956. I have always loved and been intrigued by elephants and had mixed emotions when Ringling Brothers rolled up their tents for the last time last year. I remember riding in the back seat with my brother in my parents '48 Buick to go see them in Atlanta when I was no more than 4 maybe 5 years old. I always made sure my kids got to ride them whenever a small circus came to our town. Notice all the mamas and their multiple years of offspring. Here is another shot of some of the same elephants moving along Second Avenue in NY in 1945. See the Buick peeking around the corner Then again near Times Square in 1948. Bound to be a B in there somewhere And once more in 1955 moving down Second Avenue. And a B This was the same year Marilyn rode the pink elephant in Madison Square Garden.... and I am sure she rode it well.

    We're just hoping to get a shot of rain out of it, been running sprinklers here at the gardens for a week now. Prayers for those in the floodwaters.
  7. Welcome to the Buick forum @1948dt and thanks for offering these wonderful old Buick magazines here. As I am building a 1930’s period dealership as a garage/ museum I would love to have a few of the 1920-1940 issues that may reference Buick dealerships and possibly yearly new model debuts to display. I am putting every spare penny into the building but keeping that in mind please pm me a price on a lot of say 10-12. Look forward to hearing from you.

    No rust through holes so I can’t imagine how they would leap, except from maybe one of the open windows. Or maybe the drain hole in the tire well but they looked a bit fat to fit through that.
