MrEarl Posted March 29, 2015 Share Posted March 29, 2015 (edited) A couple of weeks ago I got an email from my good friend Bob Coker, owner of the 1954 Buick Landau Concept Car. He reported that he had found a buyer for the Landau and it would be heading to a private museum in Louisiana within a week or two. As a lot of you probably know, ever since Bob purchased the car at a RM auction at Amelia Island back in March of 2010, he has most graciously allowed me to participate in helping to carry it to shows and act as chauffeur and custodian to display and reveal it to the public unarguably more than it has ever been since it's debut at the General Motors Motorama shows back in 1954. There were many miles of smiles during the making of one of the best friendships of my life during these travels. From Ames, Iowa where the car WOWED it's place into a Gold Senior and ladies were welcomed to pose in the back seat... to Amelia Island Concourse De Elegance where it sat proudly amongst other similar Landaus of it's day. Bob is not one to pose for the camera and this next picture was taken the first day I visited Bob and the Landau back in 2010, and is one of the few I have ever been able to get of him and the car. Upon hearing that the Landau would be leaving Bobs shortly I quickly put all else aside and made plans to visit with Bob and the Beautiful Landau one more time. Here are a few shots of that day. I hope these pictures show half of how beautiful and exquisite this one of automobile is. I wanted to capture as many good and detailed shots as possible as I know many of you have never seen the car in person and now may never will, since it is going to a somewhat private museum with limited showings. Enjoy! Edited September 27, 2021 by MrEarl (see edit history) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
