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?

Since my heart is with the 37 I find this kind of sad.

 

Not many made in Canada,  there were no slope/slant/fast(what ever you want to call them) backs sold in Canada under the McLaughlin Buick name.

Let alone the two door sedan slope back.

Kind of sad to see them sinking into the ground and trees growing thru and around them

Ah, yes, the Alysian Fields of Athens - er Georgia, that is.  Aka Buick Gardens.  Happy memories of good parts and even better hospitality!

Had the opportunity to meet you there personally. Nice place and good people. Did not know this picture was from the Gardens, got the pic from the net. If so, then that car has a name. Perhaps Father Buick or Mr. Earl can enlighten me. Do not remember seeing that ambulance or hearse.

@Fr. Buick is referring to this picture from above. We pulled some parts out of the Super.
