Detroit Iron

Strolled the Carmel beach again today just after dawn and saw this beautifully maintained 1948 Buick convertible, top down, with a nice fellow and his Australian Shepard riding shotgun.  It's a Buick 8 and he's owned it since the 1950's and of course had it totally restored, including the original paint. According to the Haggerty Classic Car valuation it's worth about $36,000, but to the owner it's priceless.

 

I was amazed at the steel sheet metal on this car--most new cars (like that Lexus SUV in front of it) are plastic or aluminum clad.  Oh for those good old days!

      We have a lot here as well but our weather is not the same as Scottsdale--not by a long shot.

    That dude (and the pup) are stylin' in that baby! What a beautiful job he's done restoring it!

      It is an award winner too--for that class of car and year.
