Favorite Pictures of My Post War Buick

Recommended Posts

We all like pictures! Sooooo

 

This thread is for posting pictures of YOUR Post War Buick's. Just pictures and a brief description. It will help us all know who has what and sort of put a car to a person so to speak.

 

Still post more detailed pictures and dialogue in the Me and My Buick forum please!

 

So let's see them! and who knows, maybe your car will end up featured in a calendar some day.

I don't have many pictures, but I've always liked this one:

And here's one in my "shop":

I should get around to making a 'Me and my Buick'.

Both built in Kansas in 1956.  A poster of this pic hangs in Plant I at Beechcraft.

 

We have since replaced the tires, re-chromed front & back bumpers, and re-covered the seats.  I guess it's time for a re-shoot.

One of my 55 Centurys.  Rare picture of it not in motion...probably travels more miles than the plane.

My desktop pictures rotate every few minutes, and this one just came up.  I think it kinda epitomizes why Rivieras are so much fun.  In my grandpa's '56, there would have been a post where my son's head is.  What fun would that have been?

First shakedown cruise to nearby farming town not long after the mural was completed on the no longer used grain silo near downtown Berthoud,

Colorado.

Awesome pictures so far.

Fins, Betty would fit well in Performance/Modified as well.

Here are two of my 1958 Buick Special convertible that are my favourites (so far...)

 

1958 Buick Special - Port Huron - 2006 - pic2 copy - re-touched.jpg

This was in Port Huron, Michigan right at the mouth of the St Clair River where Lake Huron empties into. Blue Skies, Blue Water, Top down, does it get any better than this?

58 Buick Gas Station (3) - Copy.jpg

Port Huron, Michigan again (same day). This was their Tourist Information Office.

Mr. Earl, a picture of "Butter Cup" would be appropriate here!

First shot in front of Tippecanoe Place Restaurant inside the old Studebaker mansion during the South Bend Nationals, second on a stop on drive back.  Best road trip ever.  Ran like a champ.
