My sisters lowered Buick and Horse trailer from 1962.

Thought some of you may enjoy this. I have a TON of this stuff because, well, my whole family has been "fans of most everything that moves human beings". And thank God, they took lots of pictures over the years.

This is my sisters 56 Buick Special complete with Olds hubcaps it appears and a lowered horse trailer! I am not certain where the photo was taken. I am pretty sure it is here near the south San Francisco bay. But it could be in Texas as well, she lived there around 62 when she was first married. But believe it or not, that wide open space is what this area looked like in 62, you have to go WAY out of town to find a view like that now. Those fields probably have a few thousand houses or some cookie cutter strip mall that looks exactly like one in your town.

I will post a photo of her husbands truck (these were twenty year old kids by the way) a 60ish Chevy, lowered with Olds Fiestas and appletons (if you have to ask you wouldn't understand), again, usually with a lowered horse trailer behind it. I have one home movie that shows it pulling out from our house and going down the street. If I were computer savvy enough I would post a clip of it, maybe someday.

I know where a 55 is, not too bad a shape, Roadmaster, heavy surface rust, little bit of rust through in floors. $500 would probably buy it, I'd guess 95% complete. Many boxes of parts. Nope, it's not mine, not advertising but if someone wants it... I wish I had the time.

Nice rig! I'm sure your Sister has a genuine love of horses - She'd have to, to climb out of that beauty and jump up on some old swayback!

Just kidding..

That could be a cloud bank back there, but I bet it is mountains. Not too many "mountains" in Texas where there is grass too unless you get down by Austin or San Antonio.
