It comes with no surprise that 1950’s is oftentimes donned as “The Golden Age”. With the sorrows of the Second World War in the rear view, manufacturers fought to produce a defining automobile to lead the way.
The year of 1954 gifted us with many milestones. Elvis invested an entire $4 to produce his first two songs, only to be upstaged by fellow royalty, Queen Elizabeth II, as she opened New Zealand Parliament. Akin to these momentous feats was the launch of rear gem, the Buick Skylark Series 100.
Buick is an automobile brand of General Motors; in fact it was the establishing company of this major American manufacturer. A Buick is not your run of the mill Classic; it stands out from the rest of your fleet. Buick was always pushing the boundaries by merging comfort, style and power. This has earnt them a reputation for luxury.
