Ettleson Cadillac Part II: Second Helping of Broughams

You knew it was going to happen. I took approximately 335 pictures at this show, so I was pretty sure one round wasn’t going to do it!

And although the earlier post on this event was all Cadillac, all the time, Buick owners were also invited to bring their cars, so we’ll see a few of Flint’s finest for this round. Enjoy the ride!

1966 Cadillac Calais

1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special

1974 Buick LeSabre Luxus

1964 Buick Electra 225

1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz

1965 Cadillac Calais

1992 Buick Roadmaster

1972 Cadillac Eldorado

The end. See you next year!

    ? Is that two tone Buick wagon a 1956 ? .

    In the 1960’s these rare cars littered the bottom end used car lots for maybe $10 in tip top shape….

    You cannot post so many beauties and then say ‘next year’ ! .

    Can’t wait that long .

      Close, its a 1955. From the badge and the 4 holes it looks to be a Century wagon with the larger Roadmaster 320 V8 in the smaller Special body.

        Thanx ~

        These old Buicks were fine cars IMO ~ not for everyone but stylish and good drivers as long as not many corners and few sudden stops .

        I miss them greatly .

    I really like the lines of the 74 Buick. The way the hood power bulge incorporates the traditional portholes and then goes down the whole side of the car emphasizing the old ideal of long and low. The low, horizontal grille is pehaps opposed to the fake Mercedes grilles so many were starting to do around then, bit works very well with the rest of the styling. With shorter and taller on the drawing boards, and boxy future Nissan designer Gerry Hirsheberg working still for Buick, it was nice that the old guard was able to have a last fling with the traditional proportions.

    I briefly–’90-’91?–tried to order a Buick ‘2+2’ which had the console extended rearward to make 2 separate rear sears in the coupe; dealer knew little about the option and I’ve NEVER seen one on the road

      I think your talking about the 4 seat option for the Regals, which was available on all the other W-body cars except for the Luminas. It had a set of rear buckets instead of a bench, but the front console was not extended to the rear.

    Wonderful images of great cars…Tom, I just got back from the LCOC Western meet in Grand Junction, CO. Some beautiful Lincolns (and a ’56 Continental).
