The Weekend in Black and White: Old Buick

I attended a classic car show which I blogged about in another post but I saved this rusty old Buick for black and white. It was nice to see an old car, amongst the shiny restorations, that was rusty and showing its age.

Rusty junk makes the best photographs! But I suspect this old guy won't stay in this shape for long. Looks like the new life is about to begin. Or has already begun.

It seems to be attracting attention, so I think Mojo must be right.

But, what is it? Not that I know much about old cars,
but I do remember names! Its interior workings look
wonderfully simple- easier to fix than cars needing fixing today! The composition is great!

Thanks for visiting and to answer the question it's a Buick Eight. My guess is late 1940s or early 1950s but not sure as I didn't pay that much attention to the info at the car show.

Great subject for B&W. Hope someone can save the old girl.
