A VERY young George C. Scott. Believe it or not, I had never seen that Buick movie. Thanks, 75.

The 1955 models sure did! Buick did not outperform on the 1955 model production until 1968.

My dad had a black '57. I used to stand up in the seat next to him leaning on the seat back to see over the dashboard when we would go places when my mother or sister wasn't along.

My favorite Buick, besides my '63 was grandpa's '56 Century hardtop.  It was painted dark metallic blue, with peach under the sweepspear, and a metallic gray top.  It had four Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels and Firestone wide whites.  Power windows, seats, and antenna. I would stand on the transmission hump so I could see out the windshield. The center of the steering wheel said "Power Steering". I got to "drive" to town on frozen custard night. My friend Howard would meet us at the frozen custard stand. His parents had a Dodge sedan. I got to roll the windows down in the Buick by hitting the button while Howard had to crank down the windows in their Dodge. Pretty heady stuff for a six year old kid.

My uncle had a '56 wagon. He traded it for a '59 LeSabre. The wagon was cool, the '59 was the stool.

My mom had a '55 Century wagon. The good thing that happened to Buick in 1959 was the 401 engine.

They needed every horse they could latch onto to pull those Forrestal class road boats down the highway.

They added a bigger engine, then mounted the brake booster and master cylinder to the sheet metal of the floorboards. The metal would rust and the brake system would fall to the street. One had to skid one's tennies to stop the "Forrestal class road boat." Like the 1958 models, the 1959 Buicks were a one-year-only abomination.
