GIRLS ON BUICKS IV

Recommended Posts

Well this girl....who just happens to be my Mother is not "On" a Buick but there is my Dad's Buick off to the side. I guess he thought more of her than the Buick. Good thing for me I guess :D:D:D

Lady landau....or Landau Linda....regardless it's a great pic!

So the question is....is this the same girl, or some other Roadie Rhonda?

Lamar and I have a side bet...don't we bud ;)

That's a decent shot of the original wheel covers on the Landau. The original ones were stolen and replaced with other wheel covers and wheels throughout the years. Charles Barnette did a magnificent job of reporducing the originals from a set of DeSoto wheel covers. I hear those will be on the Landau in Ames.

Well I tried.....

After going thru a dozen wheels, I finally found 5 that were identical and true. Then after two tries, finally got a good powder coating job.

So to keep the wire wheels and tires, I bought 5 new WWW tires and had them mounted.

I replaced the red-white-blue logos with computerized decals.

Now ready to install the covers. A 15" wheel cover will fit a 15" rim.

To my disgust, they did not.

The diameter of the cover was too large and would not go on.

The Desoto wheel must not have the same diameter as the Buick.

I`m working on a solution but as of now the wires go back on.

I am in search of a pair of gloves and hat that match the ones Landau Linda is wearing in the back seat of the Landau. The car will be available at a yet to be determined day and time for girls and ladies to pose in the back seat in the same pose as Landau Linda for a photo shoot. I will be contacting a photographer and hopefully have pictures available for purchase. ;)

Romanian...

...and if my Romanian serves me well the owner of the Buick posted this:

If God helps me, to finish the car will appear in public next month dinnou fully restored and a new coat. The only Buick Roadmaster (model 1956) made the special order of the Romanian State for the Interior Ministry. Roadmaster All sites were worked by hand, unique and customized for its owner. This is the only one who has wings for flag carriers. When ready you'll see here.

Well Google helped me but looks like it was a Gov't car back in the day.

I'd like to see the after shot of a hood built some 50 odd years after that Roadmaster.

Here's a couple shots taken in Ames.
