That picture in the body shop - it appears that the Landau has its sweep spear removed and is just the outline.
Hate me if you wish, but I have a very hard time understanding the trunk lid and straps. I'm just not a lover of 4-door verts either. They are prone to SHAKE, RATTLE and ROLL. IMO. I guess if you are the President on parade.
With that said, EACH TO HIS/HER OWN.
If you love it, GOOD FOR YOU.

I too noticed something wrong with the side of "The Landau", but i couldn't put my finger on it. You may recall my comments in the opening post, "The Landau appears to be quite unkempt....."
I always enjoy your comments even though we are not always in agreement. The beauty of the forums, to express opinion and not hate anyone for expressing the truth.
One may not like the truth, but don't hate the messenger.
My reasons for enjoying "The Landau" are numerous. I look toward "The Landau" show car, not as a glimpse into the future but rather a view to the past.
The entire concept of "The Landau" was to take a modern car (at its time) and turn it into a classic luxury automobile. Reminiscent of the late '20's thru the very early '40's.
It was more about what Buick was, rather than where it was going. The other show cars were doing that job. It was not about technology or innovation, but rather "Class and Style".
My photos and link below, explains it much better than I.
The second & third photos shows The 1941 Buick Limited Brunn Bodied Landau. Buicks example of their effort into the "Luxury Field". It could have worked, but Cadillac put a stop to that.
