The fins on the 1960 Buick became somewhat more sedate than the ’59 Delta wings, but they are very classy. This photo came from the owner of this 1960 Buick LeSabre Convertible, Denis Lachapelle from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

1959 Dodge

Very few fin-cars can compete with the rocket outlets and chrome of the ’59 Dodge. Is this the ultimate set of fins??

1959 chevrolet

The gull-wing fins of the 1959 Chevrolet has always been a favorite.

1964 cad

The Cadillac fins got smaller for every year. This 1964 Cadillac shows what’s left. Check out the reflection in the paint, a 1963 Corvette split-window!

desoto

This 1959 DeSoto Sportsman are sporting some aggressive fins.

58century

58 Buick offered some very massive fins, as on this Century.

57olds

This 1957 Olds remind you how much the designers were inspired by space design.

1959 Lincoln

Ok, these are rather modest fins for the late 1950’s…However, this 1959 Lincoln convertible is sporting a very massive rear treatment, with acres of chrome.

59cad

The 59 Cadillac is probably the most recognized fins in the world. And yes, they are still cool!

59electra

The 1959 Buick fins were called “Delta Wings”, as shown on this Electra, in a rare rose color.

60cadThe 1960 Cadillac is sporting smaller and more restrained fins. Many folks thinks the ’60 Cadillac is a better looking car than the ’59. That discussion will go on until the world ends or internet stops.

Let’s check out the car corral at the swap meet

Some swap meets have an area set aside for just complete cars and this is a walk through one of them.

Let’s take a stroll:

1964 Plymouth Sport Fury

How about an arrest-me-red 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury? With a Hi Performance 440, 727 Auto it should be a fun car.

Buick Cop Car

Drive around and pull people over in this vintage cop car.

1948 Dodge deLuxe 2 door

Best value at the swap: 1948 Dodge De Luxe 2 door.

1948 Dodge deLuxe 2 door interior

Your humble Editor need another car like I need a hole in my head but I was close to take this one home. I just love the excessive use of chrome in the grille and dashboard.  How can you not love that steering wheel? This is an older restoration but still in nice condition and it would make a great cruiser stock or modified.

1959 Buick flat top rear

How about a Delta Winged Flyer? The 1959 Buick 4 door hard top makes for a very stylish car.

1959 Buick flat top side

I am not feeling the sixties era Riviera wheels on the car but that is an easy fix. Stock Electra hub cabs and wide white walls would make this car pop.

 

1959 Buick flat top

OK, I admin it! I was very close to take this one home as well until I reminded myself that my garage is only 25 feet deep! The GM four door hard top cars from 1959-1960 offers great styling.

That’s all folks…go to a swap and buy a cool vintage car and DRIVE it!
