Not Always A Good Day For A Buick

Recommended Posts

That same hurricane nearly wrecked my 56.  3 years after that storm my car was dragged out of a basement and set on the side of the road for a junkyard to retrieve. By happenstance I passed by and bought it.  When I got it home it still had water in the engine, transmission and presumably the rear axle. There was even seaweed clinging to the frame.  Ahhh, the good ole days!

Dang man, take it easy on this old mans ticker. Old thread revived  by Ronnie, big picture of a totaled red Reatta, looks like Ronnies, heart skips a beat, finally see “not mine” in small print, wheewww!!!!!

I thought of this thread when I stumbled across that photo on my computer today.  If I remember correctly that Reatta belonged to the mother of a member of the forum.  She had to be cut out of it. Although she was injured she survived.  Sorry for the scare Lamar. Mine is safely tucked away in the garage waiting for Spring.

I inspected a Reatta years ago that hit a horse. Had a horse shoe imprint on the roof.

It does look like it has a (Cadillac) "Flathead" ;)

It took a lot of imagination and a good sense of humor to build that. 🤣
