Depression era photo.  1930 and 1932 Buicks both still in Police service in 1935. Have a look at the tread on the front tyre of the '32.

Haven't seen this one before. In 57-60 Buick and Pininfarina teamed up and built the Skylark 111, a two seater.

Harley Earl, Harlow Curtis, and Ned Nickless directed the construction of a full scale clay model know as the Skylark11.

After that they contacted Pininfarina to make 2 running versions know as the Skylark 111 or GM experimental XP-75.

It was a 2 seater but nothing with 2 seats came along untill the Reatta in '88.

Nine of those will suffice to mimic the 50 waterfall grille
