MrEarl's Daily Therapeutic Dose of Buick

Recommended Posts

Todays Daily Dose of Buick is from the summer past, a friend was looking to purchase one of these two 1940 Buicks and since I seem to be the local Buick guy I was invited to participate.  The picture I snapped through the fence reminded me of my youth when cars were stored in alleys and boys riding bikes would dream of the day when he would learn to drive.  The black car is a Century and the blue a Super so no parts interchange.  My friend decided not to buy and I do not know the outcome of these cars, I have a phone number if interested.

 

Enjoy, Gary

For taillamp Tuesday I cannot wait, it is raining cats and dogs in Southern Ontario, the remnants of Hurricane Florence.  I've painted the rear parts for my 1915 McLaughlin touring car and this is the first fitting.  Next my local shoemaker will duplicate the leather belts and the paint will get polished this winter.  The front fenders are in final epoxy primer and the headlamp rims are still at the platers.  So far I've painted everything in my home workshop, not the best painter except to say I have time to work out the details and I make up for my failings by employing the best tools and materials available.

Regards, Gary

Tail lamp Tuesday.  Found this pleasing photo of our 1913 Buick model 31, on tour, before the Old Car Festival in Michigan.  Maybe Autumn Buicks because it was September.

 

Regards, Gary

This one's for you (and I don't mean a beer - although that would go good with this package right?).

I've seen this photo a few times. Just realized it's in Greensboro,  NC. About an hours drive from me!

Wow,  a Buick on black velvet!!

 

You know, I picked up a Velvet Elvis in Tijuana years ago as part of a joke to play,  They are all over the place down there, and the genre includes other such fine images as a crying clown, flamenco dancers, etc.  But I never dreamt of a Velvet Buick!!

 

TJ aint what it used to be , so I may not be down there too soon.  But if I go, I'm getting my Buick custom painted, on black velvet, baby!!

Some medicine for your heart before you get a heart attack when you see someone spraying water 💦 all over a classic and not using a waterless product
