365-218 Stylin’

Ah, the landau top. A wonderful exercise in automotive design. Throw it on a big, wide Buick and you’ll be the talk of the town. I remember doing some car detailing when I was younger and almost all of the cars had vinyl tops. Reconditioning a vinyl top really wasn’t any fun but when the owner saw the gleaming white landau top when you returned the car, their look of beaming pride was priceless.

This superwide Buick was parked next to my car in a parking garage when I returned after dinner. It was in generally awful shape but the landau signature was still shining bright! Pentax K20D, DA 17-70.
