Is this even said anymore? 🙂 With some of these vintage, historic and classic cars so much about their construction appears to be about fashion than function; at least to me. Whatever the reason was for some of these grills they are amazing. A few of them look like they could leave quite a dent or two in whatever they would come in contact with though!
(Click on a photo to view larger and to see what year and make it is – no years for the two Buick Eights though; sorry.)
Up in my grill – It was briefly popular in teen culture here about seven years ago. It does not appear to have re-surfaced since.
Who knows what they say today. It seems to change every few weeks.
I guess if it changes that often, it does not really matter 😀
I try to understand to an extent but then sometimes I just don’t bother…it can get silly.
It is always silly, but good for a laugh 🙂
They are really artistic and undoubtedly fascinating. I agree with you on the functioning of these cars, especially when compared with modern-day vehicles. Perhaps, it would still be fun to rent them for a day and go for a drive. 😉
Some of the owners have let me sit in their cars but I haven’t driven in one yet. They are magnificent machines. Thanks.
You are a master griller! The The shiny Buick Eight with the fuzzy dice is perfect. It’s not a proper classic car without fuzzy dice.
But of course! That green monster is amazing. They had a row of these in different colors too!
Thank you so much 🙂
So classic….My Corolla would probably look a bit odd it I welded one of these babies on the front of it…but it’s fun to think about.
Do your thing! LOL
It has 220,000 miles on it. Perhaps once it has 300K, I’ll get all wild.
For work, I drive between 75 to 200 mi per day.
Form and function!
That Buick grill looks made to push cows off the road!
We were a less cosmopolitan people back then…
Do tell…that green Buick still looks straight out of a Cagney gangster movie.
Great photo, and, can I have the car!
Some at the show were for sale but I don’t think these were 😉
Thank you. Looking forward to this shows annual return.
Oh I can see why.
You would love it – it is huge!
Yes, I sure would. No plans to come to Ohio this summer but one never knows.
A great collection, Teri. These grills all helped define the car. Just look at what today’s cars are missing!
Thanks, John. Cars today seem to be a lot of plastic or fiberglass or whatever.
