Yup. Mr. Earl is correct. The biggest tip off is the '38 Olds(??) next to the Buick (if anyone even noticed that there were cars in the photo, that is). That two-tone paint job is definitely some sort of sick modern interpretation of how it would have originally left the factory.

Ok that hurt but, it was only 2 bucks and a little pride. Guess I was paying too much attention to the wrong details. But then I'm easly distracted.

Yeah, the AACA tag is a dead give-away. heheh better luck next time I suppose.

maybe I'm not the only one not able to focus here. I finally zeroed in on the item "just above the right corner of the tag" and this is what I saw.

Thanks for "focusing" in on that Lamar, and I thought it was an AACA badge, sheesh. Now I don't feel quite so dumb.

OK, so besides the paint job on the Olds what tells us it is not an old picture?

The quality of the photo looks too sharp... not that it couldn't have been done in 1938, just that most older photos do not have that sharp, crisp, clear appearance.

Also, I could be mistaken, but I don't think that triple-ribbed license plate frame came out until around 1941 or so.

It's Spring Time and looky who came to visit Buick Gardens this weekend. And since she just happened to have blue jeans on that so matched the Cavalier Blue of The Blue Bird, I was able to talk her into another Girls on Buicks photo shoot. And all with Rita's approval. wink.gif :-*

Nice collection of shots. Thanks for posting. OK I'll be the one to ask for those of us less informed. Who is it? I see she had a glass of wine. Did you have to get her drunk before she would pose on the car?

That's Terry...search the forums for Terry and Buttercup and you should find something...a thread with a bunch o' drool.

Looking at these photos again Lamar, I couldn't help but think that perhaps you should have lathered up those jeans with some Meguiars paint cleaner to get started on some shine for the Bluebird crazy.gifgrin.gifwink.gif

Terry was my wifes best friend back in college and to this day. Another perk of being married to my sweet Rita. Actually the red wine hadn't kicked in and she was a little shy and kept wanting to be serious that day.

Here is her email reply

<span style="color: #3333FF"><span style="font-style: italic">"You guys are a scream. Next time I promise to bring some of my Tango dresses and stilettos. And Lamar, I really have to drink a bit more wine before the photo shoot begins.

As for age, let’s just say that like cars, women become more fascinating as the years pass. We never lose that certain patina…as long as we’re well cared for" </span></span>

Yep, Derek, you're right about the finish on Blue Bird. She didn't fly south this winter and got caught in a couple of freak Georgia snowstorms. Got to get to work on her don't I.

Lamar, I've decided, as a matter of courtesy, to extend your lifetime membership here at the Inn to Terry as well. And, of course, membership includes plenty of food and drink and free towing service in case you, or she, becomes stranded anywhere within 100 miles of DC!

Nice pictures. Although I find it very hard to let someone sit on my cars, I think in her case, I would have to make an exception!

This thread needs to move up again so I thought I might share this link.

Earlier this year the West Aussie club were of on a short run and decided on meeting at a local suburban park.

A professional photographer was present taking some photos of a model and seized the opportunity to use a few of the cars, those that turned up early!!!

The link is to the photographers webpage, some interesting photos of Western Australia locations as well.

Somehow I missed the Girls until today - here's my addition (full screen of my avitar)

1940-girls.jpg

This is from a small snapshot style print that was sent to me a couple years ago by the previous owner of My 40 Special - I think she is the girl in the center. It is my car circa 1943 :D
