Can anybody find the Buick? When zooming and looking I found a set of protruding ūüí£ shells and is not a 54 Roadmaster.

Don't see a Buick, but all are sedans with one van/bus...no pickups or SUVs.

Can anyone explain the traffic pattern in this pic?  It looks like those cars are heading right towards each other!

Looks like they were building or repairing the opposite lane and they forgot to set up the MOT.can anybody tell me what the guy on the corner is doing ? Ask me, I know.

Selling lottery tickets?

 

I see what you mean about the repairs to the opposite lane -- I had missed that.  But without any cones or directions, it seems like it's "every man for himself" as far as turning the remaining lane into a two-way street!  It even seems like the normal system has been reversed and the cars are driving on the left-hand side.  (Except for the ones that aren't!)

Who knows what happened there reference traffic. Wonder if they had cones those days. I think the man is choosing the Cuban National Lottery tickets, I remember they were huge Pieces of paper. I think he is the buyer, sellers were called ‚Äúbilleteros‚ÄĚ and did not dress like that. Sellers were lower class but honest people

3rd on the left (behind '58 Caddy Sedan d'Ville) is a '58 wagon-

can't tell if it is a Caballero?

appears to have solid "B" pillar, but not sure-

Looks huge, compared to 1st series Corvair behind it,

and don't see any other Buicks.

 

Interesting that the only two "upscale" cars, Buick and Cadillac, are both parked at the Republican headquarters in Hyannis, Massachusetts-

and from the '59 Ford wagon/'60? Corvair, this would be at about the time Jack Kennedy was running against VP "Tricky Dick" Nixon for president

More notable that they are parallel parked...I doubt anyone (young) today could do it

They don't have to know how. Their new cars can do it for them - hands off.

6th car on the right curb is a 1955 hardtop

on the left curb, 4th from the end of the block, and before what looks like a '56 Mercury 2-door, is a 1954 Buick 4-door sedan, maybe a Special?

1952 Buick in the fast lane-

Looks like Ike and Mamie Eisenhower in the '52 Cadillac Series 62 convertible in the fast lane

probably some governor in the other one?

 

I sold my identical '52 Caddy to a gentleman in Lombard, Illinois back around 2006, but ours had twin spotlights.

It is Ike.  This is a bridge opening on the eastern shore of MD.    The ferry off to left was the only way across.  It was converted into a restaurant after the bridge was completed.  It burned to the ground not long ago.

Also looks like a '49 that just left the intersection by the Merc, and is traveling towards the camera .

The bridge is now a park like fishing pier.  A new multiple lane bridge is now in in it's place.  Progress and growth.

I think we will be at that area in August for the AACA Eastern Divisional Tour, possibly driving our '37 Roadmaster Phaeton
