That's enough tail light to be good  for Tuesday through Thursday.

Wow, guess I've just never paid attention to the '58 trunk emblems. Cool man!

Yup, it's pretty 'Special'. Oops! :o I mean only on the "Limited".

 

The Roadmaster is different again.

Nah, last I heard the toll fee was pretty high on that road. Wouldn't mind cruising down it though.

dei, that view looks very familiar, and I believe we've parked at that spot. Where is it?

Love your '58 !

Thanks Marty!

Appreciate the like.

 

This was taken "a few years ago" in Port Huron, Michigan almost under the Blue Water Bridge spanning the St Clair River with her recent finished twin bridge looking north out into Lake Huron. 

While I'm from Windsor, Ontario, Canada this particular day I crossed into Michigan over the Ambassador Bridge at Detroit with two other friends following north along the Detroit River, drove along Lake St. Clair, along the St. Clair River, spent the afternoon at a Classic Boat Show hold on the Black River and just had to take pictures at the mouth of the St. Clair River.

Under normal highway driving (on I-94) it is about an 1 hour and 15 minute drive but... along the route I described we enjoyed the unobstructed views taking our time and made a FULL day of it returning home via the same route. 

 

On the way home we stopped at Port Huron's Tourist Information restored / re-purposed gas station.

'Twas a great day! :D

Did you get a chance to talk to the owner of the other Buick (Riviera) in the background?

No I did not Ed. We were all still so pumped enjoying the moments I actually didn't notice the Riv till you mentioned it just now...

Naturally, a man who is a Riv nut would notice them :) just like I can spot a '58 in a Walmart parking lot going down the road! LOL

Is that one of those 4 door Rivieras?

 

Possibly a Chrysler product in the background not a Riviera?

Yup, went back to my original scanned photo and zoomed in just before it started to distort. You're right that it has four doors so can't be a Riv. 

Good eyes.

Yep, I noticed the length of the quarter panel, the extra door handle, and the window down on the back door, actually quite a bit different. It is "kind of close" at first glance, but definitely not a last generation Riviera.

Sorry Ed.
