No CT's and you put up woodies.

 

I did, and that last one is mine, how do you like it.

 

BTW, considering there had been no input from the scallop section regarding the visor posts, I was beginning to worry, so I checked up on him. He said he's just been busy working on the Bug. :D

I like that last one, but some might think ti's a stretch. I really love driving those flathead Caddies. I'm in the market and don't know for sure if the next one is going to cater to the BCA, CLC, or even a remote chance of the LCOC.

Are you referring to the stretched Woody limo back in post #299?  I think it's a LaSalle, not a Cadillac.  That grill is the inspiration for the turn signal lenses in the 63 - 65 Rivieras.  When Bill Mitchell envisioned the car he originally thought that Cadillac would get it and it would be called the LaSalle.  GM project XP-715

Yeah, but we will have that nasty white stuff on the ground too soon here. I'm not done with summer / fall weather and am not ready for what is to come.

Neither are generally my cup of tea, but in both cases I have seen worse, lots worse! It is often all about scale and proportion

Well, I do like those FWD Rivieras, but the Continental kit...  not so much.  The Le Sabre (looks like a '70) has a beautiful paint job -- but those wheels belong at the top of a windmill (or maybe a pram).  :blink:

Those don't look like Skylark wheel covers -- but I can't quite figure out what car they came from.

I just noticed the drawing includes the heat tube for the automatic choke inside the exhaust manifold.  That might suggest a different body location for that tattoo!

This past summer Linda and I went to Washington DC for a "Capital 4th."  When we were visiting the National Museum of American History, there was a audio/visual display featuring a 1950 Buick Super, a salesman with a couple sitting at his desk while he touted the benefits of buying a Buick, and some brochures on the car.  His sales pitch was quite something to hear.  Here are a couple of pictures that I took. Sorry about the quality of some of the pictures.  In the second picture you can see the salesman and his customers at his desk.  100_5059.JPG

The BCA Portland Chapter visited that dealership on Sandy Boulevard on a rainy day several years ago. 

The back window & headliner of my 29 Buick started filling up with water, so we had to find some duct tape to stop the leak before heading for home...
