Looks like a 1950 Olds 98 to me...

1951 Oldsmobile 98.  Compare the side spear and the tip of the large stainless piece on the rear door.

Can't be; there's no visor. ?

It sure must have been the thing for women to get pics taken by 50s Buicks. There seems to be a lot of them out there.

I'm sure back then if you owned a Buick, that made a statement and was somewhat a prominent status symbol. I suppose personal use cameras were getting more popular too. If one could afford a Buick, they could afford a camera?

My dad always drove Buicks as did his dad.  In '52, we took the '50 Super on a trip to Oregon to see my grandparents.  Dad wanted to be able to share the moments so he purchased, for him, a very nice camera; an Argus C3.  After about a year, he got tired of it and it was rarely seen.  When I was in high school about ten years later, I found it in the back of a closet and asked if I could use it.  "Sure."   I  asked the journalism teacher at the school about taking pictures, and he gave me some quick lessons.  I bought some film and took pictures of different things that I thought were cool.  I showed them to my dad and he immediately wanted the camera back.  He apparently thought that the camera would only takie pictures that had to be developed as slides,  he didn't know that you could buy print film.  I then figured out why he tired of it so quickly. But as Jason said, he took a lot of pictures of the family posed with the Buick on our way out west.  Something about that generation.
