1970 GSX and Four Eyes
Another busy week on the Reynolds Buick GMC Facebook Page and a wide range of photos to enjoy. The winner this week was the 1970 GSX announcement ad from our Ad Wednesday series of classic advertisements. This ad shows the Saturn Yellow GSX at its finest. Sadly only 678 of the limited production powerhouses were sold new, they're certainly worth a fortune today.
In second place and only by a few votes is "Four Eyes", a great shot of a 1958 Buick getting its headlamps aligned on the assembly line in Flint. 1958 was the first year for the quad lamps, which sales promotion named "Vista Vision Headlamps." It was also the first year that the factory had to align all four, but judging from the all okay signal we are being given, the Buick line workers got it down pat. The car has already passed its "roll test" and is about to be shipped, This photo appeared as part of our Labor Day Salute to the men and women who build GM automobiles and trucks.
Be sure to check in daily at the Reynolds Buick Facebook Page for iconic photos from Buick's long heritage and fun conversation with knowledgeable Buick folks. It's a lot of fun and we hope to see you there!
