  1. My father took me with him when he went to buy a new car. We went to the Buick dealer, and he let me pick out the car. I picked a 1956 Century 4 door hard top. Lots of extra, black and white with a black and red interior. He drove it over 150000 miles. While in High School I ran parts and customers for a local shop that specialized in Buicks, Caddilacs etc. When I was ready to come back home from Turkey in the Spring of 1960 I had my father give my $950 in savings to the guy I worked for and asked him to buy me a car. He got me a 1956 Buick Century Convertible, robins egg blue and white. It had about 9000 miles on it, and he put it thru the garage to make sure everything was good. Put a lot of miles on it, and took it to California.

    I got a 1956 Buick Special for a graduation gift. We ordered it from the factory and it had power windows which were very rare for the time. I loved that car and was always thankful to be so lucky to have it. Thanks to my parents. Since that car I have had six Buicks and have loved all of them. Today I am a member of the Buick Club of America.

  4. This was my first nice car in 1958. Coupe, Dover White over Cambridge Blue. Stick shift. Drive it through the last years of college and the first couple of years of the service and I miss it every day.
