A Special Buick

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Alvin Trace

This beautiful 1955 Buick has been laid to rest but it's lines and style are still there. As a child my first road trip was in a Buick very similar to this I loved the looks of this car, it was "fast" and comfortable, especially to a boy of nine years old. We drove all night and I stretched out on the back seat "sans" a seatbelt but without any worries and awoke early in the morning excited to see how fast we were going and where we were. Every time I look at this picture many sweet memories return and remind me of the earlier times in my life that I took those road trips wit my family.
