Roberta:

On the left hand side of that last photo is the driver side fender of my 39 with the Ohio license plate and the Buick Safety Legion Tag. The only time I remember being at the Cultural Center is for the Centennial in 2003. Wish I'd been there when this photo was taken.

Roberta,

That reminds me...I purchased a couple of '29 ads that came out of women's magazines of the day (don't recall off hand what they were and would need ot start digging to find the ads), so the ads were geared toward women. Perhaps when I make a chance I'll find them, scan them, and post.

At least the latter half of that statement goes without saying. Right now, Ewing has me drooling over the '81 Regal Pace Car replica on ePay.

They are close by...I should have time tomorrow to try to scan them (they're wider at least than my scanner) and post this weekend at the latest.

My mother. Just got back home from a trip somewhere. My guess is the picture was taken in '60.

I have quite a few pictures of my Buicks with my girls (Mother, Grandmother, Daughters,Wife). I thought I'd throw this one into the mix. She will be 28 on the 31st of Dec. She looks to be about 4 in this picture. She was probably showing off with her new bike. I'll have to post others starting with my Dad's 41 Super.

They're too big for my scanner, so I took digital photos, mucked about with them, and uploaded them.

Here's one from the September 1928 Ladies Home Journal.

This one is from the same location, but October 1928.

I got sort of a snarl / scoff from Suzanne when I mentioned they were from what should be one of her magazines <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

I see Roberta's ad is from a later version of the same source. It goes to show back then that the advertising really was targetted...neat.

thanks Stevo.

Always like period photos, they really are worth a thousand words. Your mom's outfit looks like a nicer summer dress from that time. That's a beautiful car. I believe 41 Buick? That means your folks just bought a new car.You can tell from the short sleeves and maybe if your mom is that detailed, then maybe it's a 4th of July outfit (stars)

Another of my Mother taken in 1940. What year is the car?

Lamar, that is it for now. I will have to dig a couple more out.

My mother, pregnant of me in the fall on 1976 with my parent's '76 Century Custom coupe (she had just turned 22 on this picture).

When I was born in Jan 1977, my father had already replaced it with a black '77 Pontiac Grand Prix with a red cloth bench seat as he didnt like the cold vinyl bucket seats in the Buick but he sold the Century to my uncle who kept it five more years. I remember riding in the backseat of that car and looking at the nice center console and dashboard. That's the car that got me interested in Buicks! When my uncle sold it, I still didn't know it used to be my father's car until I found slides showing my parents with this car many years later!

I guess this photo will fit this thread. It is the occassion of my daughters wedding and we used my 1930 series 40 sedan as the bridal car. The car was my fathers and I inherited it after his death in 1993. It was a really nice touch to use a vehicle which my Dad enjoyed owning for many years as the bridal car for his grandaughters wedding.

And the four lovely ladies from the car, and one old ugly bloke, father of the bride who doubled as chauffer.

Greetings,

Thankfully the thread isn't called Girls Gone Buick! I can think of few Buicks more suitable for this topic than the '42-'48 large series, with their flow-thru fenders. Hope you enjoy Dave Bowman's 70K mile, 47 Roadmaster HPOF cream puff, which we call Mr. Henry.
