Sure you have Cal, it's just a 53. But the visor may be throwing you.

Just kiddin, no I've never seen a milk machine like that either, nor a LOOK traffic marking. Can anyone make out the license plate state on the 53.

I believe it is a Massachusetts plate, and I think the photo appears to be in the mill district of Lawrence, MA  

 

I live about an hour away from this town and those milk machines were popular in Mass. when I was a kid.

Couldn't find any good info on this one but looks like the Buicks were a sideline to International tractors and farm equipment.

I did find a Harris Truck Services Ltd In Ladis Saskatchewan Canada.

Unconfirmed if the same place but defiantly in farm country.

There's a Clark Chevrolet Buick in Kansas that dates to 1962...perhaps close enough in time that it came from this dealer. 

 

Im not sure if Landis would ever have been big enough for a buick dealership of that size.

As the expression goes, "You either Love 'em or you Hate 'em" which can apply to many cars but in this case, I am with you!

This is how small towns in America looked on Saturdays before Interstates and Walmart came along. I miss those days.

Pictures or it ain't so. ;):)

 

Before I post a response to this Mr. Earl regarding the dual quads, 

Let me wish everyone a Best of the Holidays to All!

 

Now,

Here is all I have picture wise showing the dual carbs on my friend's Riv.

Look at that HUGE air cleaner with the two snorkel air intakes.

And since I just received this tonight, watch and you will see the car with the breather off.

If you have patience and watch it all there are a couple of interesting cars (besides Buick's) but a few Buick's that are really nice. (Lot's of street rods - I know - but shows a bit of the local flavour)

Enjoy. :)

Advise your friend that the positive post on the battery should be on the radiator side.  Ask a couple of us who've had the positive post where it is shown in this picture what happens when the hood brace makes contact with the positive post.   The factory sent cars out with the cable lying across the battery from the positive post.  In a service letter, it was advised to run the positive cable between the battery and the hold down bolt to keep it from rubbing against anything, especially the ground wire, and to make sure that that positive cable was clipped to the inner fender with the clip that came as part of the inner fender.  The service bulletin was sent out because of the cable rubbing against the large bell of the four note horn - as this car is also equipped.  So far so good it appears, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Ed,

Have passed it on, Thanks.

I know all too well about shorts under the hood! Definitely not a great experience...

 

Gotta Keep those Buick's alive and well.

Not sure if this has been posted. Can't recall seeing it here though it seems to be popular with photographers. Gotta love the similarity in majesty of the car and backdrop. Cow Canyon Trading Post in Bluff Utah
