  1. Okey, it's kind of sketchy. Talked to my uncle, he bought the 54, gave it to his mom, which would be my grandma. She gave it to my dad. The car was green with a brown convertible top. My uncle also painted the car white, while dad had it. He had the hood emblem removed, and mounted the trunk lid emblem to the front grill. It was hard for my uncle to remember, to long ago. Here are some pics. My mom and her friend on the green buick. And dad in black and white pic with his letterman jacket. Sorry I couldn't give more info.
  2. No unfortunately I do not RivNut. But I took the picture again and it's a little clearer. The picture has some water damage I think? Should have more about the car tonight. There's no hood emblem neither billbuickgs.... Lol.... My youngest sister had this photo of mom and dad in the backseat when they were dating, 58-59??

  15. I had a blast! It was my first event. Got to meet Old Tank, Smartin and Mudbone.. Thanks for cruise in.. Pulled up to the gas pump today with the 57, this guy gets out of his car and says, "Wouldn't You Be Rather Driving A Buick" and then he says, "Remember those Old Commercials"? I just grinned..
