I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

Recommended Posts

That 52 Riviera, THROW THEM SKIRTS IN THE NEAREST TRASH CAN, IMO.

That wagon is a very nice piece. I almost thought it to be a ROOT BEER color, that would be cool.

Hello to all.

I recently came across a web site on Trenton, NJ.

The site must have over 200 to 300 photos in the site.

In the next several posts are some of those photos.

The joy in these photos are to find the Buicks. The fun is seeing the photo.

So if you don't see a Buick you will at least have fun, if not a trip back in time.

All photos from the web site and most from Duke University

I saw where gas at one station was .12 cents per gallon. Would that be the GOOD OLD DAYS?

Then with another, a 41 Buick, and 41 Caddy.

Nice photo's,

I just couldn't resist posting these also.

I have to admit i couldn't find any Buicks.

I like the sedan delivery in the first photo.

Great looking Deluxe Diner in second photo.

Awesome signs in the third.

To those of you who have been following my post "No more Twinkies"; note the Tastykake sign above the two Coke signs.

1952 Buick Super Riviera.

Dale, you don't like the fender skirts? A lot of people don't. I was actually pondering some for my '52 eventually. Agreed they don't look great from this angle but I like the way they look from the side. :) Anyway, love the colors on this. Is that top black or dark green? Don't care for that pompous vanity plate though. I would "EN V IT" more if he would paint his trunk handle and fin emblems. :P

Ran across these while searching for Buick dealership photos for the other thread. Both are from the Atlanta History Center's archive. First is an unidentified man and the official pace car for a race at Speedway at Lakewood Park in Atlanta, Georgia taken on March 31, 1957. Second is Atlanta Fire Department Chief William B. Cummings (right), his chauffeur William L. Gilbert (center), and his aid Charles M. Thurman (left), posing in the chief's Model 16 Buick in Atlanta, Georgia taken on April 25, 1909.

Robert,

I have always like MY cars to have a competitive look, thus NO SKIRTS...... With that said, Robert, you are the ONLY PERSON THAT NEEDS TO BE HAPPY, so go for your LIKES.

Such will not make me think of you as a BAD PERSON, just not my thing. I can accept skirts a lot easier when the car has a slight frontal rake. I'm not a fan of lowered rears, makes them look like a boat trying to get up on plane. IMO

Keep up the good work/writings Robert,

Dale in Indy
