Hmmm.. I see the car you refer too tongue.gif

Just to clarify.. is that "before you could exit", or "before MrsEarl entered"?

I figured you and Don both would run and touch the stove and I was right.

and re the clarification... you're right on both counts and the fact that I'm alive to be answering this post attests to the fact that I was able to click that little X at the top of the page quick enough. shocked.gifcrazy.giftongue.gifgrin.gif

Steve,

Thanks for bringing these in from "the other" Buick forum. Buick has never been shy when it comes to promoting their cars with beautiful girls. I wonder...has anyone seen any such ads with the new Lucerne. I'm sorry but I'm a little tired of Tiger.

glad to see that beautiful Roadmaster still in your signature. And looks like you brought your son and daughter up appreciating the greatest automobile on the planet too. wink.gif

Boy, I wish I could get Rita to polish my chrome. I guess I better hush though, she did clean a few hundred brick for me.

So this is "her" car eh. And you had to ask which car to start restoration on next... confused.gifwink.gifgrin.gif

Yeah, but she likes the '29 too...decisions, decisions. I think I recally typing something about hers being the vote that counts too, didn't I?

Mr. Earl pointed out to me yesterday that some of my scans from the Buick Salesmaster Record newspapers and Buick Magazine from the 1959 model year are great candidates for this thread. So, here are some "Girls on 1959 Buicks":

How about sharing the top boot of the '59 convertible with two majorettes?

Buick organized "Buick Caravans" during the spring of 1959 as a tool to re-ignite stalled sales of the '59 Buicks. Buick's zone offices worked together with dealerships to bring a large number of new Buicks to town, and parades were planned to give the Buicks maximum public exposure. At the conclusion of the parade, dealers worked to provide as many demonstration rides as possible. Here, we have a couple of parade images from the 1959 caravans:

The next shot does not technically have a girl on the '59 Buick, but who could resist sharing this great photo of Sky King and his niece, Penny. There were many reasons why "Sky King" was among my favorite television re-runs as a kid in the 1960's.

No topic on "Girls on 1959 Buicks" would be complete without mention of the famous Schultz triplets, who served as "Miss LeSabre", "Miss Invicta", and "Miss Electra" in many of the 1959 promotional and advertising images. One of my '59 Buick buddies is actively working to establish contact with the triplets, thinking it would be great fun to invite them to an upcoming Buick National Meet for a photo session with the '59 Buicks.

No comment JohnD........ tongue.gif

Woohooooo, those are some nice promo photos ye ol' Centurion. You know Buick has never been shy about using pretty girls to promote their cars. I wonder if they still hold the "Bachelor Parade" in Tennessee.

thanks for sharing.

LOVE those 59 pix....

Now that you guys are all warmed-up on the subject blush.gif , I have a somewhat related question for you.

I distinctly remember an issue of Playboy (I believe it was from the 1980s) that featured a photo session that used a 1960 Buick convertible as one of the props. It was not in just one small picture, but was used throughout the ,er, "story". I'm fairly certain it was a Chalet blue LeSabre, but understandably I might have been slightly distracted.

I have tried to identify this issue on a few occasions, but have been unsuccessful. Anyone have either a better memory than me or a collection of this vintage "literature"?

Of course, it is strictly my interest in 1960 Buicks that causes this quest. grin.gif

Alright Greg, that gives me an excuse to go through all those vintage Playboys I have stashed in the barn.... All the time knowing they're all dated prior to 1980 B.R. (Before Rita)

Man I didn't mean for you to delete it. I loved seeing several of those cars as I scrolled through. I just thought it could be resized so everyone ( I presume I wsn't the only ond) wouldn't have to scroll from side to side.Cool?

All I can think of looking at that picture is many, many years ago spending time in bars. A couple girls walked in (one pretty, one...you get the idea) Buddy leans over to me & says 'Don't like the one your gettin'! grin.gif Sorry if I offended anyone! wink.gif

Fess up Mr. Earl who are all these lovely ladies...we have to know the story behind the photo. If I recall that was a St. Patty's nite, the comment caught me off guard & I spewed beer...it was getting on to the wee hours! grin.gif To be that age again, sigh!
