This is on eBay now
The original dealership where my car was sold (twice) was in South St Louis on Gravois Blvd (I think)
This is a newer dealership in West County in Ellisville, MO I forgot they even had a dealership in West County.
Picked this up this fall from Wild Bill and half assed restored it..
I just attached it using emblem tape. Mines in nice shape, but I am not so into the idea of drilling holes.
And I thank you for this thread years ago which posted Warren Westlund BUICK frames, as I found not only the one but two...
The love affair is this is my home dealer circa 1984-1994 and a old pal Dave Dobbelaar was the parts manager and mentor and a True BUICK GUY . Rest In Peace Dave. It was good to have a pal behind the parts counter back then....
Back in time.... I stopped by the dealership one day around 2007 and the dealership was trasitioning to a mixed brand crap hole. Warren’s dealer optioned personal 1970 BUICK Skylark convertible was outside as if for sale and I like locked the brakes and stopped in. Sadly, a dumb **** salesman was there and I asked to deal with Warren and buy the car. Of course Warren wasn’t there as he was up in age. It was a fully loaded 1970 Skylark convertible, Gulf Stream blue, white top and interior, rear defogger, cruise control, buckets, console floor shift, high compression 350, air conditioning, power disc, power window and doors, etc, 3.42 posi and mint low mile convertible. It was essentially a GS 350 convertible fully loaded less the grill and hood and knowing Warren saved a bunch of money for not being a GS but maybe getting a fully loaded Skylark Convertible was worth more one day... when I popped the trunk there were two Warren Westlund lisence plate frames on the floor and I asked to buy those, and again, DA sales guy didn’t know what to do and I asked for Warren to call me. I did get a call back a few days later and the price was 18,000 which was fair but wasn’t going to happen for me at that time and I lost track of the car since.
Fast forward, these aren’t the frames from that car and I doubt too vintage as the frames in that car were solid cast not stickers...I’m going to start to track down Warren’s car as it is a piece of our history.
Still looking for a Deane Buick license plate frame but in the meantime since I'm down and have been cleaning up my license plate frame collection and painting them I made pops this for his car. We will never mount the trunk lid emblem so this was made.
I've had this sitting on the shelf for years. Bob Benson Buick from Petaluma California. $25 +shipping if anybody's interested? Here is another one on eBay to make a pair. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PETALUMA-B...311127?hash=item5649db86d7:g:240AAMXQ1PNRdiJ4
I still want a Len Pollak from Gary,Indiana frame...
Would love a Jacobs Twin Buick from Elmwood Park (Chicago) IL
Anything Bartlett Buick, Buffalo, NY. related. Thanks.
Still looking for
Brooks Buick / MD
The old dealership owners grandson sent me this one..
Williams and Swanson / WA
1962 california NOS license plate tags $25 each
Check out the ashtray
Yeah buddy......just scored
I was browsing on ebay the other day and notice that while license plate frames are tough to find, there's a ton of vintage Buick dealer keychains. Just saying, perhaps another route to the cool vintage vibe.
Same as Brian back in 2017, Larke Buick/Hastings, MI is what I'm looking for.
Correction Jensen Buick Harrisville MI...
Always keeping an eye out for Butler Buick in Torrance CA. If one doesn't come up then there are plenty of Seaside Buick ones out there. I did find a key-chain but it was cost prohibitive at this point.
Daly City Carl Hass Buick Opel plate frame $35
Plate is spoken for.
Brooks Buick / MD
