  3. It would be in Divorce Court for most of us if our car was parked in motel lots as often as that one.

    I don't think this is a real car. It could be a concept pre-production car, but real '53 Skylarks have the same tail lights and rear fenders as the rest of the '53 line. I wish my parents would have bought one of these in '53. I was too young to influence the choice. They went for a '53 Lincoln Capri hardtop. It did handle better than a lot of the competition, think Mexican Road Race Lincolns.

    I am not a big fan of '57 Chevys. The '57 Pontiac was better looking and a better overall choice I think.

    When you open the picture of the Skylark it says 1952 Skylark. It also has real knock off wheels.

  25. I don't believe Buick Skylarks were available to the public until 1953. The 52 is probably a prototype.

    Yes I'm going to be "that asshole" and say this to those who may have forgotten or those who didn't see it posted earlier in this thread. Please stop the one-liners, funny comments and, "eye pokers" comments on this thread or it will get shut down. I'm sure you guys are all hilarious in person but this thread isn't the place for that.

    Yes, that should pretty much render it not driveable.
