Gotta say, can't agree on the "Don't Like" of these. Matter of personal choice I suppose.

Similarly if we are just looking at custom Buicks it occurred to me how long will it be before this thread shows a photo of a forum member's car and bad feelings are created.

You know Thriller, you are right.... since I started this thread, I should insert this proverb here “ to each its own” and you will find the definition as a link. By no means This thread meant to be derogatory to anyone taste but just a simple personal opinion by whoever posts here just like the saying “somebody’s junk is someone else’s treasure” or  “different strokes for different folks” hope nobody takes it personally.

Definitely an era specific fashion statement. I have a picture of a pair like that (somewhere - hidden... :D)

Yeah, pictures of the modified ones could cause the thin skinned owners some grief. But they looked finished and driving.

 

Whereas this might be worth the sum of it's parts.

I think I remember seeing this at the Fall Hershey Meet in the late 1990s.  The image was indelibly burned into what little gray matter remains between my ears.  What has been seen cannot be unseen.

Sorry for the reminder? I would also make an effort to forget this!

Looks like someone did not survive the accident with what looks like bio hazard signs all over the car.


Also, louvered blinds in the back window?

I don't know "that" much about the "older" Buicks, but, I just don't think they were built like this ...

I think a different version was posted a while back but just thought I would post it since I ran across it, what a mess!

 

It is on Craigslist in Minneapolis if anyone wants more info.

This is not the right way to change the head lights.

Sometimes they look like the turkey carcass after Thanksgiving.

But it gave up a set of correct seat frames for me to reupholster.

Story goes that All American Classics in Vancouver Washington  https://allamericanclassics.com/   has leased a portion of their property out and is having to clear out the vehicles currently stored on it, therefore will be crushing literally piles of their old cars. They have always laid claim to having saved so many “classics” but I call BS to this current activity. They could have had a big ad campaign to try to sell the cars vs crushing. Hopefully I am misinformed. They call this their Buick pile
