Ugh... I hate it when ugly things creep into the background. Here, I helped you out a little:

If I get a chance, I'll slip a Sparty on that front tag for ya!  ?

LOL...

My wife was so embarrassed.  There was a police officer standing nearby when I backed up onto the empty sidewalk to take the picture.  The officer never said anything, and we waved as we left.

 

You must live right John to not be bothered from him! :lol:

 

Then again, I have been to a game at that stadium. I'll bet that Officer has seen MANY things besides a fantastic Buick parked on the sidewalk.....

 

Continued safe travels.

My car moved to Sweden about 2011, from Indiana (I think). Anybody recognizing and willing to give me some history?

:D No Don, I'm right across the Detroit River in Canada.

I have family in Michigan and until recently have travelled over there quite frequently. Living on a border town it was always common to enjoy the different venues and shopping over there. For the most part it still is but Customs (on both sides) can sometimes make it a bit unpleasant from the old days but if one has nothing to hide, you just answer their questions and eventually they say, you're good to go.

Once I get the new tires on the Special want to go over and take Jefferson Ave right from the Tunnel out to St. Clair Shores and take some shots. Grosse Point is along the Lake and where a lot of Car Executives (and suppliers) built their Mansions. It is a great drive on a warm sunny day.

Stay tuned.

I have a copy of the official Buick magazine dated November 1955 which had a photo of a dealership in an unidentified location.  I did some research and found it not far from you, in Detroit, depending on your definition of IN Detroit.

Me, my newly purchased 1958 Buick Special, my Dad is in the Van at my Grandmother's home who helped me buy the car.

This was early August of 1972.

I love it!  Where do I get in line to be the next caretaker!  

 

 

Right behind me. In fact I sent him adoption papers and a Will for signatures last month but have yet to hear back.

It has been an amazing year driving the Special again after a 12 year slumber and have posted a lot of memorable pictures of her but captured these tonight to ad to the album.

Your Century is the same color as mine, except mine is supposed to have white under the sweep spear. I can't wait for it to look like yours. :wub:
