Welcome to the broard. It's nice when new members introduce themselves. Looks like you've got a few cool cars, I look forward to seeing the pictures, especially of the 59 Impala, I'm currently trying to get the original owner of two rust free 60 Impalas to sell one to me.

A 56 Olds Flower Car! Now THAT'S one you don't see everyday!

As a matter of fact, how many guys on here even know what a Flower Car IS?????

Being from Detroit do you make it to the Woodward Dream Cruise?

I don't know what a flower car is. I'll guess and say it was made for the use of florists.

Welcome, have a beer, should be cold, fridge is full.....
Oh, and watch out for all the bulls**t on the floor. Sometimes the guys forget to sweep up and it gets kind of thick.

The Olds is the only one I have found like it to date! Thanks for the welcome! P.S. Don't get to the Woodward Dream Cruise, just to many people. But I do get to the Downriver Dream Cruise every year, just like Woodward but alot easier to get to'

Oooooohhhh! That's a flower car. Now I know what your talking about. Rather an unusual hauler but not everyone has one. Cool! The kid down the street from me has the body hauler to it. Him and my boys have a blast in it.

Thanks for the pic, Now that I know exactly what they look like. I've only see one other flower car before, it was a 69 Cadillac. That Olds must be extremely rare.

As far as I can tell on the net and after talking to as many coach builders as i can, it is the only one ever built on an Olds platrorm in 1956!
