It was still in operation into the 1980's at least.

Still going today.

They have branched out to Buick, BMW, Cross lander, Isuzu, and Mazda.

1936 Buick customized by Bohman& Shwartz for the movie Topper, starring Cary Grant, Constance Bennet.

 

On a side note on the picture below I noticed white walls on both sides of tires, Was this normal for the day ?

I only remember seeing them on one side so you could have white wall or black wall showing.

Double -Sided Whitewall Tires were an option - a bit more expensive, too

001.thumb.jpg.28b2eaa80cbe8553863ba1a2553c2edf.jpgHere's one taken on the grass at the Sloan Center.

 

Close, but no cigar.  I believe it is across the street from the Sloan Museum on the lawn of the Flint Public Library looking to the south west. 

 

Here are the houses behind the cars.

was at the BCA National Meet in Sacramento, CA in 1991 under construction, I'll have to look for my pictures. For Sale and sold a couple of times I believe, Way cool buick of course!

 

 

That was where I saw it. Also the Rain Man Buick was there. 

The story that I got on the Skylark was that it was made for the wife of one of the Big Shots in Buick or GM not sure which.

Story was that she liked the car but didn't like a convertible as it messed up her hair to much.

If you look in the pictures there are vents beside the back window, inside the window there are two clear plastic tubes that let in fresh air.

Not sure but can imagine that you could control the amount of air you wanted to come in.

 

Cal.
