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

Recommended Posts

Since I would have been responsible for digging myself ( Mom did not drive) out of those snow piles, I often shoveled the driveway before entering or exiting! :D

Those crappy bias tires and open differentials made for some great fun on frozen parking lots though. ?

 

That they did -- in fact, my mother was known to 'let the tail wag' around corners for a little fun now and again! --- Weeeeee!!!  (Watch out for that snow bank...)

Well, I was only 8 years old in '66 and our driveway must have been 120 feet from the garage to the road.  When there was snow on the ground shoveling the driveway wasn't high on my 'fun-meter'...  ^_^

My first recollection of snow tires was Firestone Snow Biters.  I learned to drive snow in a 78 rear wheel drive Buick Regal 2 door coupe.

I can't tell if this is the Wildcat concept or the Old's concept.

No info with photo.

Funny you say that because I would lay in the back of our 73 Estate Wagon and hear the snow tires through the floor humming away.

What do you mean SMILE? We just signed a 30 year note for a $4,500 home.  With that kind of debt, I can't smile!

I'm not certain if it's the Olds, but it is definitely not the Wildcat ll.

 

Note the rear side exhaust just before the rear fender.
