I had a ride in this car as a 12 year old kid in 1967.

By the looks of the plate it was the last time she was licensed for the road.

Lingering red. The white flowers turn into red apples. Then in fall they drop and lie on the ground to ferment. Drunk rabbits get boring to watch. Riviera picture from around 1981.

Getting up close and personal again.

Going to re-purpose that wheel nut to live on on my good Limited.

Perhaps one of our down under brethren could make a Ute out of this.

It already is, just leave that trunk lid off!

 

Seriously, before your comment Ed I looked at the photo and thought what a great crew cab ute these remains would make.

Just an Aussie thing I guess.

Looks like it might be the start of one of those "garage cave" seats, except with the length of that Roadmaster quarter panel, might be better as a "bed frame".  Only thing is that with that length, it'd probably take up a full stall in the garage!  Ought to sleep better than a lumpy couch, IF properly done . . . air suspension not considered.  Air Suspension??? That could raise the "step-up" height (to one's knee height) or increase the "slide-out angle" for ease of exit!  Then set it to happen when the pre-set alarm goes off!  Those upper quarter chrome pieces would make good grab handles, but probably not ADA-compliant.

Actually considering saving those quarters and hanging them on each side of the garage walls with tail lights lit up when I choose...

 

Meantime, there are a few other parts going towards saving this one which is it's identical twin.

Not to compete with you Aussie's here but looked around and found a sketch I thought I had done while in College and sure enough!

I did this long before I sentenced her to the present demise...

Sadly, the same car! :(

We used to have something called Front End Friday.  Here is one I have been saving up, my 1915 McLaughlin chassis going to meet it's freshly painted touring body in the shop next door.  A great day for me, enjoy.  Gary

I know they need painting but not sure they are doing the car any justice?

That's just one of those things where either they work or they don't and no in between.I feel they would look nice on Buicks because the sweep spear would hide most of the same but it's hard to say if they don't complement the change in height from the door to the rear quarter.

 I've always liked fender skirts, but then I grew up in the 1950s.

A set of wide whitewalls would improve the image !

My first thought, sell the skirts and use the money for wide whites.

 

I am a pretty big Cadillac fan. Two of them that I like best are the '64 Eldorado convertible and the 1998 Sedan DeVille. They don't have skirts and out of about 70 years of skirted Cads they stand out.

Whites!
