No worries there...shoes came off first. Couldn't convince them how the bikini would also affect the upholstry too. blush.giflaugh.gif The cruise was titled "Thunder in the Strip". Only seemed appropriate. Seems I was the only one that thought along those lines. mad.gif

Not a very clear picture of the July 15th issue of Parade magazine. Definately a Buick (think '49?) with a pretty lady sittin' tall! Maybe one of you who is a bit more computer savvy can copy and paste a picture from parade.com?

Ohhh........ I thought about it, beleive me I thought about it.Thw whole time they were getting their pictures with your GN , I was thinking about it. But I finally came to the decision , that the picture of them with the Electra wasnt worth a few nights on the couch.Besides like I said , my car made it into the background on a few of the pics.

Girls Mothers by Buicks.

Family friend, Betty Chandler posed for a dealer promotional photograph on the bonnet of the first Holden sold in the Murwillumbah district of NSW Australia in the 1940s. (Unfortunately she does not have the photo)

Betty is still modelling! Betty jumped at the chance of having her photo taken 50 years later on another GM product, My 1950 Buick. And jump she did. without assistance she was up on the bonnet stirking a pose, quicker than I could say "would you like a hand".

Michael, I somehow missed these until now. Thanks for adding to the collection. Be sure and tell Betty she made it to the famous Buick Club of America "Girls on Buicks". IOW she's still got what it takes. In this case a real Beauty on a Beauty.

I'd like to thank the kind gentleman from North Carolina, Martel Gibson for pointing these out to me in Seattle and suggesting that they would make a great addition to this thread. I have to agree.

Roberta,

Nice pics. Thanks for putting them up online.

You know, that '64 Skylark is such a clean design, and the car is just the right size, it almost looks as if it would sell today if it were available and upgraded with the latest technology. It sure would be a great alternative to all the plain me-too copy cat rounded off foreign-looking cars of today.

Maybe that is one of the dozens of reasons we like Buicks; great designs age well.

I had a '65 Buick Skylark 2 dr hdtp that was midnight blue that I used as a daily driver from '84 to '92 and it was a great car. It got a lot of admiring looks and it is one of my favorite cars. The 300 cu. in. V8 was a great running engine that got decent mpg also.

Here's one taken in 1963 in front of my home with 3 of our 4 daughters. (the 4th wasn't born until '66) I bought this car wrecked. It was green and white originally. I did all the body work and painted it as shown. I re-did the interior to match the exterior. I was 27 then. I'll be 73 Saturday and still working on Buicks-and more.

Those are some sweeties there wk's olds. Love it. Don't suppose you still have the 55 or know where it is. Sure would be cool to get them 3 back in front of a 55 again, ehh.

BTW, there is a more current edition of Girls on Buicks. We're up to GIRLS ON BUICKS IV

Oh, thanks! They still are sweeties! We're a very close-knit family with much love for each other. We now live in the same town as our youngest daughter (now 42) and 7 of her 8 kids. The oldest one is in the navy. I'm sure you've seen some of the videos I have posted here on "Young kids and old cars" under the general disscussion of the AACA. If not, check them out.

If you ever run up on a 55 that you can get your daughters to pose in front of, you know you'll have to do it.We can always photoshop the colors in. I love that picture!!!

So good to hear you're still workin on these old cars at 72. Gives me hope that I can finish some of my projects.

TopCat, very, very nice. I'll just leave it at that. wink.gifsmile.gif

And Rooster, I can tell Irene still draws the pretty girls just like here in the US of A.

Uh I guess we may as well just give up on Girls on Buick III and GIRLS ON BUICKS IV
