  3. Yes, cars of today are supposed to be safer due to materials, design, and as you said, scientifically tested crumple zones. And as you have also seen, cars of years past were heavier with thicker gauge steel but that created a problem. They were so stiff (pre 1966 safety standards beginning) that people were injured more by the hard G-force impacts of non giving hard steel body and chassis designs because you were thrown harder upon impact than if the car crumpled and absorbed the impact. I am sure they were probably safer in slow speed crashes or non violent rollovers but more high speed im

  4. I always think of them as Lincoln Continentals, Just for fun I did a Bing search for pictures under, 63 Lincoln, and 63 Continental, and came up with hundreds of images under wither name. Then for reference I put in 49 Riviera, and found far more pictures of 49 Buicks... Not quite sure how to read those results, but it was a fun search. I did note, I prefer the original thin stripe white walls vs the fat whites.

  8. Well I'm back. (sort of....) Had a meeting with the City official today over the yard conditions thing and while he wasn't impressed with my solution to put up a 10X20 portable garage in the back yard (where I would have rather put it beside the garage if things were NOT so wet) it did serve the purpose to hid the things my neighbour wasn't happy to see beside the garage so he's gone and hope the H*## to never see him again! Now will be calling the Building Standards Department Monday over the water run off on my property! This is going to affect three of them but I guess "wha

  9. Here are a few pictures of today's work. The side mouldings have a quarter inch black plastic bumper strip, but on the left side it has been pulled off completely at some point in the past. A large retailer in Canada, Canadian Tire sells a lot of vinyl pinstrips of various sizes and colours, and I found some that was the exact width, and in a black that closely matched the gloss of the original. It looks almost identical to the original, though of course it is not as thick. A bit hard to photograph well, but I hope that you can see the progress well enough. Keith

  10. These are some great pictures of membership cars. Wonderful Thread. Here are some favorites of my 28 Buick Standard Sport Touring. The oldest ones are from 1948. The man standing next to the car is my granddad. The one with all the family was taken in the summer of 55. That's my dad driving and my two older sisters plus me in back and a family friend. The last ones are about 2008. Thanks Dave_B

  11. Our all-original 1937 Roadmaster 80C was purchased by the City of New York to serve as a Parade Car for Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia - "Little Flower". Fiorello retains all of the original interior, convertible top, drive-line, and paint (with touch-up to a few battle-scars received during parade service). The Roadmaster transported Sports and Political Dignitaries such as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Vice-President Harry S. Truman, General Dwight David Eisenhower, General Douglas MacArthur, British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, and many others as it served the city through

  12. Well...... here goes.... These are some photo's of my '41 Buick, which I have owned since 1963. I won't go into the long story as to how I came to own the car, but it was my daily driver in my senior year at collage at GMI in Flint. My wife and I dated in the Buick before we got married after my graduation. After we were married and I bought a new 1965 Chevrolet SS, I thought about selling the Buick, but I just liked it too much to let it go (I never was very good at selling cars), so it saw occasional summer time use. I was already a member of the BCCA when it folded in 1965, and fin

  13. Love this thread which I just found today. so here is a photo of my 39 sedan. It was sold new in New Zealand in December 1939. It is a RHD NZ assembled Buick with a Fisher body not the Holden body seen on many Australian Buicks. It a Special but was sold with the Century external and internal trim. (hence the outside trim on the windows and the centre rear seat arm rest) It has been in my wife's family since 1972 and was our wedding car in 1994 and also for her sister in 1995. I purchased the car of the family estate in 2002 and have over the last 4 years done an extensive frame on restorat
