Just received a mailing today for owners of the 49 Oldsmobile 88 Wagon, referring to this Buick as the companion piece. They're both Woodies, of course, but beyond that I don't see them as a real pairing. I already have the beautiful green version which was discontinued, so I will probably pass on this one, but if you missed out then I suggest you get your order in for this one soon. Anyway, here for your enjoyment are my scans of the mailer...

Peter, Thanks Much for posting.... I ordered this one some time ago. As far as I know it's been delayed until after the beginning of next year. Unless someone has heard otherwise????

I also received the brochure today, it's the second one that I've received since I got one in the paperwork with the 49 Oldsmobile Wagon. I'm also going to pass on this one since I have the Green one and like the color better than the Blue.

I have the green one and to me that color is the ultimate they could have done that car in. I did order this one, like everything these artists rendering from DM do is give you a general idea of what the car looks like. The real deal blows it away, the cars and colors are awesome. I believe this Buick will look good sitting next to the 54 Caddy.

When we build "em", we break records, not parts.

I have the green and I actually think this one might be nicer. JMO. Partial to Blue. Especially dark blue. We'll see.

On order tracking, seems like they have a series and the Buick and the Olds wagons are in that same grouping

I'll bet that your green will go good with the blue next to it!!!!

Haha. We'll see. May be difficult to choose. Don't have many that are exactly same model/year/style.

Some WCPDs but besides that, the two 41 Caddies, two 55 FM Caddies, just a second Aston Martin Coupe, two 56 Desoto Coupes and Converts but technically, each is a different model I think.

Thanks Peter, I also received this brochure with my Olds Wagon and sent in the order form the next day. I missed the green Wagon and didn't want to take any chances on missing this one!

Personally, I'm looking forward to the blue... I think it will look really sharp.... At first, I was watching to find one of the green, but, when they announced the blue, I stopped looking.... I'll wait until I have my hands on the blue. Than, I'll decide if I still want the green....LOL...

Have the green model, like this one equally as well, but one will be enough.

Larry, Sorry, I sure don't.... I simply emailed the CS with the description and that's all that she required at the time that she took my order. And, as for the T Bird, that's not one that I collect, so, needless to say, I haven't ordered.... Good luck in your search....

Thanks Ron. I thought maybe Brad would have them. He usually does.
I seem to have faster shipments from DM when I order from their website.
BTW...I have heard the '53 Buick wagon has been pushed back until Jan 2010.

I wouldn't worry about that, It will probably pop back up in a day or so, I've had that happen a lot of times. I've even had the car in hand before it ever showed up on the order tracking site a couple of times.

I've gotten to the point that I order all of mine online and they Email me when they ship so I don't have to worry with the order tracking site.

Thanks, Evan. I had to call them anyway about something else. Usually speak to Chris who was busy and I got Tracey on the line who was terrific. Happen to ask about the Buick. She said the scheduled ship date is now December, but the scheduled date for the Adriatic Green is unchanged--still January, 2010. Some things to look forward to. Thanks again

Ther is a number of "8640/of" on the option form. Don't know if that means anything or not. I have the green one but love it so much I am considering the blue one too. What to do, what to do.....................
