Photos of the Week- Skylark In Blue and Invicta Texan

We've been pretty busy over at the Reynolds Buick GMC Facebook Page, showing cool images and videos and talking about Buicks and GMC Trucks. We've been growing like crazy and having a lot of fun interacting with you folks. To help integrate the blog and our online activites we've decided to start a Photo Of the Week and share the best liked photos from the prior week. 

This week, our most popular image was "Skylark In Blue", a portrait against white of a classic, limited production 1953 Skylark. Skylark was the most expensive car in the line up for '53, a virtually hand made convertible chariot with leather seats, chrome plated wire wheels and a hydraulic system for the power top and windows. It had a list price of nearly $5,000, which was a fortune. 

Our second most popular photo was "Invicta Texan", a shot of a beautifully restored 1960 Estate Wagon with the ultra-rare (less than 300 made) Texan bucket seat interior option. Texas was the rage in the fifties (all those Western movies) and Buick made a special "Texan" show wagon for the 1959 season. It was so well received that a limited production model was offered in 1960. The car in the photo is one of a handful of survivors and a wonderful reminder of the space age styling of the '59 and '60 Buick wagons.

Feel free to drop by our Reynolds Buick GMC Facebook Page for daily images and fun conversation. See you there!
