YAK Car Pic of the Day

Just to prove that I don’t go out of my way to find crappy-looking old GM cars (see yesterday’s post), here’s a gorgeous 1961 Buick LeSabre convertible, waiting for its owner to come out of a North Tonawanda business so the top can go down and enjoy what’s left of summer. In the early 1960s GM could do no wrong (almost), and they put forth some of their prettiest cars — especially when compared to the monstrosities of the late 1950s. In their advertising, Buick called the ’61 models “The Clean Look of Action.” Can’t argue with that. A total of 11,951 LeSabre convertibles went out the door, with a starting price of $3,382.

    I love the rocketship look of the cars from the early 60’s.

    Also jet fighter. Those three ovals on the front fender are designed to mimic machine gun ports on fighter planes.
