I certainly don't see a problem here. ;)  VERY NICE collection!

 

Attached is part of a Buick collection I was given a couple years ago now.

Would you consider parting with one of your duplicate B10 key blank key chains? Even one opened out of the package and slightly tarnished would be good for my 1955 Buick. I could buy or trade. I have a new gold plated key blank for 1968 and up Buick key blank code R.

Ah HAA!  I always wondered where the hood ornament from our '82 LeSabre went.  Dad left for PA and it had one.  When he got home it did not.

Nice collections...I didn't see any like this, so I thought I'd share...my only keychain. I bought it to use but it's too nice!

I see Brian has a key chain similar the my first one.  That is also an original DAV "return your lost keys" tab from my first keys...to a 62 Rambler! The second key tag is said to have been an employees tag.  I don't see that one here.  Enjoy.  (though they're certainly not as pretty as what Frank posted!)key rings3.1.jpg

So much treasure on this page already! Can't ever have enough, but lately I've been spending my couch cushion money on other priorities.

My paltry tobacciana stuff is on the other thread...

See the difference? You can find those reflectorized "flashing" '55 BUICK key chains most anywhere.

 Shortly after acquiring the '87 'Hawk  coupe,  I stumbled across this emblem still attached to a shattered remanent of my '82  Skyhawk convertible's tail light.

One of my daughters has been making and selling paracord bracelets.  Looking for opportunities to expand her product line, I gave her the keys to the 'Hawk.  In it's unfinished form, everyone was calling it 'Buick man.'

I was at the salvage yard yesterday to get some parts for the wife's car, and I liberated some potential keychains from their cadavers while I was at it.  A hood ornament is a bit heavy & bulky for a keychain, but I thought I'd give it a shot.  

After a couple attempts to tie it off, it was obvious that I was going to have to modify it, so I took it to the grinder and removed the flange from the pin.  Now Ruby has a custom keyring too...

Didn't remember having some of this and it is not organized like some of the above.

Some of the treasures, the script Reatta is a machined brass prototype.

On the lower left is a Twentieth Anniversary Riviera XX dash plaque and an Indy pit pass for the same year.

Ship........thanks for posting.......I showed it to my wife and told her to stop complaining about what I have, which is nothing close to your collection.

While looking around the forum I ran across this thread and thought I would add a couple items ...

I do have several models and things, but NOT nearly as well organized as those posted above, and, not near the quantity of trinkets that Ship has!

I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been a Silver Arrow key fob added, and I thought of another interesting item I got several years ago. I'm not sure when or where I got it but it looks like it might be a hat pin that might have been a Buick security guards hat pin?

The other interesting things are a Team Riviera pin, from the introduction of the '95 Riviera, I have several of these, and a Buick tie pin that looks to be some sort of replica of a forged Buick emblem, second from the right in the last picture.

Just thought I would add to the interesting memorabilia already posted.

Nothing super rare, but my Riv key fob and Buick watch my buddy got me for Christmas (I'm a massive watch freak).

Mine is a Centennial watch from 2003.  My buddy found it on Ebay for me because they're not still produced, obviously.  I think you can find them fairly easily :)
