Vintage autos and their owners from times gone by

1958 Buick… Roadmaster? Limited? Special? CENTURY!!!!!

With its unmistakable grill, I knew right away that this was a ’58 Buick. What I didn’t know, since almost every Buick made in the day looked like this, was which model Buick. It took me a while but I’ve pegged it. It’s a Buick Century. What gave it away? The side view mirrors on Centurys were positioned in front of their radio antennas on their fenders – all others had their mirrors in more traditional and convenient locations much closer to their vent window — you know, where you could easily reach them.
