YAK Car Pic of the Day

Thanks to YAK reader Richard Sloan for the photo of this 1953 Buick Special, which he spotted recently in Lackawanna. The Special was Buick’s lowest-priced series in ’53, looking even more lowly with black tires and dog dish hubcaps. The four-door Special was Buick’s best seller this year, with over 100,000 units produced at a starting price of $2,255. Here’s a link to the old brochure.

(If you spot an old/interesting vehicle in your travels, and you’d like to see it here, send me a good quality digital file in a message on my Facebook page ( Just let me know where you saw it, and just what it is if it’s not obvious)
