  1. Ah, when was the last time Buick and Hollywood glamour went hand in hand?

    1. It's the 1967 Buick full line brochure, I think. Also starring Suzy Parker and Wilhelmina!

  3. Bench seats! Perfect for going on dates and lots of room for the ladies' bouffant gowns. Also the backseats have lots of room for you-know-what. These days all cars have this big console which is a huge barrier. Other notable items like seatbeats (no shoulder straps) that nobody used. Other pre "Unsafe At Any Speed" items lacking are headrests, collapsible steering columns, etc. I guess that was the days when men were men.

  4. My father had a 1967 Buick Wildcat convertible. One of the top two photos might be the Wildcat. I would bet the third photo is the Riviera, and that the fourth photo is the Electra 225.

  5. I feel underdressed for climbing in next to any of them. But then that's just what some boys are looking for.

  6. Those bench seats did make it awkward if the passenger and driver were different heights and one needed to push the seat way up in order to reach the pedals! ;-) Still, I can recall many a time as a kid looking into the car ahead of us and seeing a guy driving with his girlfriend practically adhered to him with the passenger half of the bench empty!

  7. I guarantee that if I slipped in beside #2, we'd be very, very late to our destination and i'd be even more disheveled than I normally am!
