Question rethinking that 39

Josh,
Great pictures. You might want to remark that 39 without a grille. From the tall grille opening and the divits in the hubcaps it is a 36. The 39 Buick had a low wide grille.
Thanks for adding to the Buick pics here.
Mike

Default The one I let get away..........

That 58 National Buick was owned by a 58 Buick collector in Pennsylvania for years. He used it to haul his swap meet offerings to Buick meets. We had a mutual friend in the Buick club who introduced us when he brought the ambulance to a Buick National Meet here in Flint some years back. He wasn't interested in selling the car at the time, but promised that if he ever did he would call me first. True to his word he called me about five years later and told be he was moving and had decided to sell the car. He wanted $50,000.00 for it. That was way to rich for my blood and so I just didn't pursue it. I suspect he sold it for far less than that. If I had it to do over I would have worked harder to get a deal. It is a fabulous automobile.

Went to a haunted corn maze this weekend in Elmira, NY. To my delight, they had an early 60's (1962?) Buick combination parked out front. It had the expected Halloween paint scheme, but looked relatively solid. The owner said he starts and drives it twice a year. Once to put it out for Halloween and once to put it away. I offered to buy it on the spot, but he declined.

I'll post pics as soon as I get the camera back from my wife.
