So badly damaged that it is hard to tell the make.  The wheel wells don't look familiar for a 40-41 but the rear turn signal suggests that this used to be a beautiful 2 door convertible Buick.  This would make a great parts car today.

 1948 Super.

That's an enhancement of the original door design. If the top edge doesn't poke you in the face you can get stabbed by the bottom corner. I have had two '94 Roadmasters and still have a '94 Impala SS. Like Blondie used to say, they'll gitcha.

 

So, at the big National Craigslist Seller's Convention, in Monks Corners, South Carolina, the first topic was "Prepare for the first question: Do you have the original wheels?"

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

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.

Check out the groovy bell bottoms on the guy on right standing behind the trunk

 

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.

Fresh paint 14 years ago, never seen daylight.

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!

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.
