My Favorite Car: '56 Buick Special Convertible, Charles Wilder, Treasure Island

'56 Buick Special Convertible

In February l956, I received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy after four tours of duty at sea in and around Korea. During those years, I saved enough money to purchase this car through the military discount and picked it up in Detroit. I drove it home to Ohio where I became a freshman at Kent State University at the tender age of 24. The picture was taken in Tierra Verde. I loved the car beyond words, but getting a university degree was more important than having that fine car. I had wonderful times with the convertible, and wish I still had it today.
