A few garage photos

Recommended Posts

Since it's not possible for me to add all the Buicks I would love to my collection, I've enjoyed focusing on the garage itself.  

 

Over the years, I've acquired several Buick signs, mostly reproductions, and have added Buick-related art prints and model cars.  The garage is ever-evolving, but these images pretty well capture the present state.

Brian,

 

This leaves me just breathless.  What a wonderful collection.  I have to get busy with some model kits this winter, but never will match that.

Brian, I can tell you a lot of stories behind some of your Buick signs.  We had a lot of fun with them in Flint in 2003.

Is there room for a bed in your garage ? I think I would like to spend a couple days there !!!!

You should be very , very proud of your  work but where are all the cardboard boxes full of

used parts like the rest of us have ?

I have been purposely putting off even looking at this thread until I had time to peruse and give it the attention it deserves. I give up. Like Bill, I think I could spend days looking over this collection and asking questions and hearing the history and about where every thing came from. I see SO MANY rare and one of pieces in here!!! Even the reproductions are nice and were selected with great taste. I can appreciate too the $$ and time spent acquiring this superb collection. And you know what, I know Brian, he is a just a mainstream working family man and I can assure you he does not have the means to simply buy every piece he would like to on eBay and elsewhere like many well to do collectors, this makes me appreciate this collection even more. Each and every piece is so artfully displayed, I know that has to take time but must be a lot of fun.

Thank you so much for taking the time to take and post all the pictures Brian. Please keep us up to date of any new pieces you may acquire or possible re positioning of the collections etc. 

Rita too was in awe of all this and only had one question to ask. "How long does it take him to dust all that".  To that I replied "He doesn't, his good wife does" which was met with "Well don't get any such ideas in YOUR head!"   

 

Again, thanks for sharing Brian. Now back to the top of the page for a slow scroll back down.

Holy cow ... what an amazingly stunningly awesome collection!  Would LOVE to see it in person & really take time to look at it.  I'm guessing these pics don't do your museum justice.

Tom, good catch!  There's a fellow here in the Tacoma area who produces all manner of one-off lamps, utilizing various automotive or household items.  Among my favorites are his many lamps patterned after Seattle's Space Needle.  He has also produced a variety of flying saucer lamps, but, when I saw this Sputnik lamp, I knew that it needed to find a home in my garage!

Just coming back to gawk at this awesome collection. I am still seeing things that I did not see in my previous visits. For instance check out the crests reflected in the mirror in this shot. How about a full head on shot of that Brian.
