CC Outtake: 1968 Buick Skylark Custom Convertible – Better Days In Flint

253 - 1968 Buick Skylark Custom Convertible CC downtown Flint

There was a time in the not-too-distant past when my hometown was best known for headquartering Buick and building GM-branded cars and trucks instead of for toxic drinking water.  Spotting this pretty Skylark downtown a couple of years ago took my mind to a time when the auto industry in Flint, Michigan was the engine, literally and figuratively, that drove a booming economy in the Vehicle City.  Not as an entreaty, but out of sincere gratitude – I thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, wishes and resources that have been directed toward the people of Flint.
