Find the Buick

Recommended Posts

Kentucky Derby and judging buy all the 49's I'd say circa 1950? Cadillacs and Buicks, high society at the race track

Lots of B's here. Maybe a baseball stadium lot? 1958?  Something under construction in the background with steel supplied by Pacific Iron?

More high society B's and C's again at Kentucky Derby. 193 ?

Park anywhere you want... can....  imagine the wait some of these folks had. Drivers must have had more patience than todays.

and another high society, this time at Rockingham Park. 192?  ... again, it must have taken patience waiting for the guy in front of you to move.

LaSalle.  Biplane bumpers used only in 1934.

Find it in my vintage hometown. The drive in movie theater was located on Bird Road (SW 40th Street) just west of what is now SR 826 (Palmetto) expressway across the street from Tropical Park in Miami, Fl. Later it became a swap meet venue and then it was demolished. A shopping center is actually there housing a Best Buy, Target, 🌮 🔔, Publix Supermarket among other stores. Remembered well.

This is pretty crazy.  I've been looking at old photos online of my neighborhood in San Francisco.  Here's a shot taken about half a block from my front door.  Can you spot the Buicks?  Of course you can!  A '41 (like mine) headed towards us on the left-hand side of the street, and another probable '41 partially concealed by the streetcar.

Whoa Boy!  This is a tough one to find the  Buick.

 I was hoping somebody could find one... 70’s roof lines. How in the world you get in or out of that parking lot?
