3rd from the left, in front of the CAFE looks like a 1954 Riviera-

Lamar?

 

And if I dream long enough, there would be a 1956 Roadmaster convertible, red and white, with white leather interior and red carpet - parked just out of sight down at the beach with all the fixin's for a clambake and bonfire this evening

Wow !

... found the white 1959 Buick Flat-top 4-door Hardtop next to the puddle heading toward the trailer,

Then noticed:

1954 Buick is 3rd from left between Chrysler and Olds

Far right center on right end of row is a 1956 Buick

directly behind it, and in front of the 1952-1954  Nash is a 1955 Buick

Farther to the left, the man is standing behind a 1958 Buick 4-door Station Wagon (Estate?), facing a '59 Impala convertible, and between the '56 Caddy hardtop and the '54 Plymouth 2-door.

 

Hope I didn't miss any?

 

Behind the mountain in the distance, a younger version of one of us is dreaming of building a twin-screw speedboat with a pair of Nailhead Buick engines 😎

You got them all as far as I can see.  In fact you found two that I hadn't found.

 

Thanks Neil,

 

Clicking on the photo to open in a new window, and then clicking again to zoom in really helps - sometimes,

But - depending on the quality of the photo we can lose a lot of the detail.

 

Thanks for submitting. You and Elpad, and so many others really keep this site interesting.

You are welcome, Marty.  I can't keep up with Elpad, but I like to look at The Old Motor so that's where most of the photos I find come from.  Also, Shorpy, which is a fantastic old photo resource.  There's almost always a Buick in there somewhere.  What actually surprises me are the shots of traffic and parking lots where you CAN'T find a Buick!

True -

but remember that everyday folk - the larger share of the population, assured that the "Low Priced Three", Chevy, Ford, and Plymouth generally ran 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. 

I believe it was 1955, or maybe 1956 that Buick edged Plymouth out of 3rd place in overall model-year sales, but I could be mistaken.

Surely some of the more fact-based and knowledgeable here could provide factual expertise.
