YAK Car Pic of the Day

When this 1961 Buick Special Skylark coupe hit the showroom, it was a sub-series of the compact Special; by 1962 it would be a series in its own right, available as a convertible or two-door hardtop. The Skylark had many of the amenities of the big Buicks, such as “…devastatingly rich instrument panel and appointments…seven delightful interior schemes…deep, deep carpeting which will make you wish barefoot driving were the fashion…” and on and on. Oh, and I believe most Skylarks also had doors, front fenders, and a hood — unlike this weight-saving example seen a couple of days ago in a Grand Island driveway.
