an old station wagon

Shortly after I'd been forced into 'Medical Retirement' in 2004 ( but when I was still feeling good enough to engage in a lot of 'creative trespassing' in search of old automotive relics! ) I happened upon this long neglected ( 'junked' )1975 Buick station wagon in an 'Automobile Dismantling Facility' that had just been purchased by a group of foreign 'scrap steel recyclers' and would be 'gone forever' in a few months. ( It's an overgrown vacant lot now! ) Something ( the Buick's spirit maybe? ) told me to 'draw a picture of the car' ( even though 'newer' model cars aren't my specialty as far as drawings go ),which I did ( the drawings in my portfolio here on FAR ) and after finding several of the reference snapshots I'd taken of the car in my 'archives' I decided to post my favorite of them here too! Godspeed,old Buick! Wherever ( and Whatever! ) you are now!
