The 1964 Buick Skylark had the Buick TriShield in a circular badge inset in the center of the grille and no hood ornament.



The 1965 Buick Special had the Buick TriShield in a spring-loaded hood ornament.

Also the 1965 front bumper was sculpted more ornate than the simpler 1964.

HAHAHA....BRICKLIN SV-1 made by the BIG FRAUD - Malcolm Bricklin. I saw one the other day in Dearborn. Malcolm now wants to make a flying vehicle. He's a wierdo man. In one of his recent interviews he actually said this "My dream is to build a flying vehicle , I just dont know of any technology that could get the car a few feet in the air. if anyone knows of such technology please come to me."
Well, get in line sir coz everyone wants that. and is this image from wikipedia

Default 1974 Bricklin SV-1 at Haynes international motor museum

Well caught Bhupendra!

It is a 1974 Bricklin SV-1. The body was of fibreglass with bonded colored acrylic. The car was never meant to be painted. However the acrylic would crack and worse delaminate. So I guess it would end up primed and painted anyway.

You would have heard of the famous British Haynes manuals.
Along with the American Chilton's manuals we know them from decades.

Well, there's a Haynes international motor museum at Sparkford, England, about 45 km south of Bristol, just off the A359.
It has a world-famous "red room" that houses fifty beautiful red sports cars from around the world, including a 1981 Lamborghini Countach 400s and a 1965 AC Cobra.

Here is a 1974 Bricklin SV-1 in that room!

By the way you guys see that extension in front of the car around 6 inches. its actually got a spring behind it . SO when you bump into something it absorbs the shock to a certain extent.

Speedy - Before you upload the pic, learn to change its name! I can tell you what car it is by opening the pic & looking at its title!
