That '56 Century convertible is one I'd love to have in our garage if a comparable  Roadmaster were unavailable.

We have visited the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island several times,

and once reenacted the scene from the movie "Somewhere in Time" which was filmed there with Bud Jonas' 1910 Oakland. Our 1912 Oakland was at the dock in Mackinac City.

Motor vehicles are not permitted on Michigan's Mackinac Island, a great place to visit.

Thanks, Elpad, for a great memory.

Funny, we got the same taste. A 56 any model ragtop will be my favorite.

While the '55 is a striking and exceptional design,'the '56, at least in my opinion, is simplified, smoothed, more refined, elegant, and just plain cleaner in form.

(This also applies to "Little Brother" Chevrolet.)

Haha -- indeed!  Also, judging by how bald the spare looks, that guy is very likely going to have to go through the whole thing again pretty soon!

Yeah, but we travel loaded down also, as Mark Shaw can attest !

When we drive our old cars cross-country, knowing that a reasonable supply of parts, tools, and other assorted "junque" is along with us is reassuring.

Buick Reatta at the Reatta Craft Center in Lansing Michigan.

A series of specialized work stations replaced the conventional assembly line.

Sometime between 1988 & 1991.
