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


Recommended Posts

When I was 9 years old my Dad and I were at a local Buick dealership with a 59 similar to this in most respects. I was quite taken with it and suggested that Dad should buy it.  I must have been insistant because dad finally addressed a salesman and made an $2,500 offer on the car. I just remember the salesman saying they couldn't sell for that.  Subsequently I thought the dealership was crazy to turn down the offer not realizing the offer was probably 2k or more below the advertised price. I thought dad was a hero for trying.  A few weeks later the neighbor bought a white invicta convertible with a red interior.  Both of those cars are still on my short list if I win a lotto.

Piedmont was a nice regional airline. I used to fly them a lot, but not in their tail-dragger days.

 

Thanks for the interruption. Now back to our regularly scheduled thread.
