How about:
The "D" doesn't stand for anything, It was just the logical successor to the "C".

Pretty tricky, Rich. I like it.

Next question:

What was the first year that Buicks had a rigid hood that could be opened to the left, or to the right, or come off completely without removing any fasteners?

I just called my shout out. My brother says 1942, makes sense.

I know that a 1941 had the one piece hood, previous to that they were a "butterfly" style hood. 41 has got to be the one.

You are correct, Sir.

Someday I hope to own a '41 Buick. Preferably this one that a friend of mine now owns. It has every option available, including the dual carb ram air intake, and the ultra-rare AM/Shortwave radio.


An interesting side note: When Buick designed this model, they failed to take into account that when the hood is tipped to the side, it interferes with the door. Just about every '41 Buick you see will have a paint chip on the back edge of both sides of the hood for this reason. If the hood is opened as pictured above, you cannot open the driver's door without it colliding with the hood.

On the other hand, it is very handy to be able to remove the hood to work on the engine without having to worry about losing the alignment.

Brian, the floor is yours.

Joe G.

Those Buicks are BEAUTIFUL that is for sure!

Ok, here is a toughie for you guys.

Who is the famous California sports car driver and builder of this car?



I think you can find it way too easy so there is a second part. What Elvis movie did it guest star in?

By the way, this car and the owner may be a little obscure, but couple of guys who drove later versions of this car went on to be world famous.

I should clarify, it didn't "star" in an Elvis movie, not by any stretch of the imagination. It was more an "extra".
