  1. The '39 Buick that was in Casablanca is reputed to have been in the collection of the late Len Immke of the Immke dealerships in Columbus, Ohio. His collection was broken up several years ago, but I did get stick my head in the '39 that was allegedly in the movie. Now all I have to do is take the 60-mile trip to the north of Columbus to Malabar Farms, where Bogie & Bacall got married. Here's lookin' at you, kid.
  2. I've been rattling my brain pan trying to think of cool movies that feature Buicks. The most obvious one to me is Rain Man, featuring the '49 Roadie convertible. There's also the '39 that makes a brief appearance in Casablanca. "A Beautiful Mind" featured some '51's driven by the bad guys. Even one of the Batman movies had some '51's or '52's modified to look sinister. Past that, I'm pretty much stuck. What cool movies can you think of that prominently feature Buicks?
  3. And don't forget last year's acadamy award best picture, A Beautiful Mind. Lotsa Buicks in that one. It's been months since I have seen the flick, but it seems to me there were at least two '51 or '52 Buicks in it. Oh yeah, the movie is good, too.
  4. Thanks for the reply! I have emailed Ebersole. I will post here if I get a reply. Thanks again.
  5. While removing the radio from my '51 Roadmaster, I found a paper pasted to the underside of the dashboard. I don't know what might have faded away in the last 50 years, but I did find what appeared to be a build date for the car of Feb. 28, 1951. The car was apparently going to Gingrich Motor Company in Lebaon, Pa. I haven't been able to find any info about the dealer on the net. Anyone here know anything about them?<P>Thanks!
