I see a lot of abandoned and junked Buicks posted in the May or May Not Like forum (formerly the "Don't Like" forum) and bless their hearts they couldn't help that they ended up where they did so certainly no reason for them not to be "liked" anymore. So in their honor I respectfully submit this thread and offer a few examples of these once loved but now abandoned Buicks. These are from a photo file I maintain called "Abandoned Buicks Eclectic"

Mr. Earl, Thanks for starting this thread. I've been photographing these neglected gems for many years. Here are some Buicks I spotted along with 200-300 other cars in Eastern Iowa about 25 years ago. I'm sure they're gone forever by now. I hope some of the parts live on in some of the Buicks on this forum. Look at that straight grille on the first one. Wouldn't that be a prize now?

Used to see one in about this condition in Saltillo, Ms. when my girlfriend lived near Tupelo. It was almost sunk in the ground. Looked for it every time I came through, and one day, it was gone. I have noticed that it seems all the hoods rust like this one. I think it's because water stores in that part of the hood when you wash them. Every time I wash mine, I open the hood first thing before drying, and a TON of water runs out both sides. Hopefully, it'll help save it.

Knowing your affinity for Riviera's, this photo to you would be like showing a broken bottle of Ripple to a drunk.  I'm so sorry.
