Favorite Pictures of My Post War Buick

Recommended Posts

My Roadmaster model 72R  from California.  20,000 original miles.  Interior is like new. The paint is faded.  Runs like a new car (from 1950).

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.

Correction... The photo used to hang in Beechcraft plant I.  I retired and took it with me.  Now it hangs in my shop!

A sentimental shot today since the car has not been at my old home since 1984.

Too wet to drive and get dirty so went at the front end with the paste wax.

Still polishes up not to bad for a 50+ year old paint job.

Two new shots in one night.

 

On the Canadian side of the Detroit River looking south west at the Ambassador Bridge.

I can never work out which end I like best, front or rear!!

 

And a question - how do I keep these photos the same size as the others on this thread?
