: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!  My father had the same model in Tahitian coral. It did not survive daily driver use unfortunately

Wonderful cars and superb photographs in this topic, which I had previously overlooked.

 

Adding my 1959 Electra:

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

I've had the '69 for about 40 years now. I guess I'll keep her.

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:
