Buick pictures you may or may not like

If they didn't take any visible valuables out of the Park it looks to me as a jealousy act.

Pity.

Woke up this morning to this! Seems to be a random act of stupid vandalism (hopefully). A handy start to the day, broken glass everywhere. Paving brick was thrown with such force it damaged the trim on the other side of the car. Lucky insurance will cover it but it will be a wait for the replacement glass to ship here in Australia. Perils of owning a unique car. Late model Buicks are few and far between over here.

That sucks!  So sorry Rick!  Such a nice car too!

Thanks. Cannot think of a reason for a targeted attack. Nothing stolen, doors where not even opened. We will be anxious for the next short while in case of a repeat.

 

Jealousy is a probability but I am sure that anyone who understands our plight are more likely to look on us with sympathy bordering on pity due to this overwhelming affliction we all seem to suffer from (cars, parts, spares, tools etc.)

 

Best thing about this car is that my wife chose and bought it for herself. Another victim! Can prove contagious. Now she owns her own Buick (she technically also has the "64) I cannot be made to feel guilty for the rest of them. At least that's what I tell myself as I ponder the time and $$$ that my three upcoming projects will hit me with for my next few lifetimes!

Are the three upcoming projects Buicks?

Yes, all Buicks. Have a 1929 standard 25X Holden bodied tourer that I purchased as an unfinished project. Also trying to fit in a 1964 special coupe at the same time. Now THAT causes difficulties!

I have also in a fit of madness, bought a major project. A 1929 54CCX convertible coupe. Too rare and desirable to pass up.

Need more space....time....money....

Seems that you have the work cut out but the bigger the challenge, the greater the reward. Love this hobby.

This was taken in 1969.  My Dad's beloved Golden Streak was rear ended.  He was at a complete stop, signaling a left turn when a stewardess in a Mustang plowed into the back end at 50 MPH.  According to the Police there were no skid marks.  It turned out very badly for her.  Mom and Dad were pretty sore but walked away from the wreck  The wagon did get repaired.  A testament to how tough those old Buicks were. notice all the glass was still intact.

Actually, I love these pictures.  It's pictures like these that make the survivors more valuable. ;)

Like the cars, don't like the condition depicted on the pictures. Would love to jump on those Buicks

Couldn't seem to edit, but noticed later that it is a picture of James Dean.

That's Donald Turnupseed's Ford in the back left.  He's the guy that ran the stop sign.

Can't see the Special (but she is in there).

 

Flooding of any kind or to any degree is NOT GOOD! :angry::(

You gotta give them credit. Everyone talks about headers out the ventiports, but I've never actually seen it done. Obviously fake, though, the paint isn't cooked.
