for you guys it might be a daily experience, but for me it was not!
Yesterday I saw my first 1947 Buick 4 door sedan.
We visited the Techno Classica in Essen, one of the big car shows in Germany with cars from 500 Eur to a few millions. Dozens of Mercedes 300 SL gull wings, at least 100 190SL's of the 50s, Jag E types everywhere and of course 100s of vintage Porsche's and other Mercedes, already seen a hundred times, wonderful, no doubt, but out of reach anyway and often totally overrestored.
The highlight for me stood on the parking lot outside - a 1947 Buick 4 door sedan. We arrived at 9 am on Sunday and it stood on the reserved parking lot for visitors with their classic cars. No other car close to it, I had a chance to watch it from literally all angles and it took really my breath away. Dark green, far away from being a show car, but nice overall. What a beautifully designed car, pure elegance with its flowing lines and sheer size. So tasteful and impressive the interior with its fantastic gauges, radio console and steering wheel. During the show I told my wife at least 10 times the best thing here is the Buick (of course 2nd best after her). But I did not even take any photo!!!!!! Need to have one.....
