No way, really?  I'd be disappointed, but could be wrong. 

 

Dang, you're right.  Buick would have inset turn signals in the fender and the tail lamp would have a rectangular section.  See photo below.  Don't you hate that all new cars look alike!

Judging by the passenger reactions this 1934 Series 40 Roadster looks like it is travelling at warp speed!!

Kgreen, it was the Sombrero hubcaps that stood out screaming Cadillac to me.. Cadillac and Buick did share the same Fisher bodies trimmed out differently. Also notice there were two different trunk lids that Cadillac`s and Buick`s used, the Cad has the lower profiled one, and the Buick you show, has the more rounded one, which gave more trunk space.

BB, is that the larger trunk-lid on the yellow Cad?  Trunk handle looks to be larger and more verticle similar to the Buick. I like all of them. And the gas cap location? Upper portion of the left tail light flips up to reveal gas cap.

With 510 ft-lbs. of torque standing by, there's no need to spin the crank above 5000 RPM...  ;)

Location is Wheaton, IL. About 107 Front St looking East. The Tin Shop is now a Subway. Many of these buildings still exist. Is that a 1947 or 1948?

 

Cheers, Dave
