Junk in the trunk

Look at the way this Buick is riding! What does she have in her trunk? I know there’s a full size spare back there, and a jack, but that wouldn’t make it practically drag the muffler.

1950 Buick with junk in the trunk

My brother had a ’56 Buick, tweety-bird yellow and I think red upholstery. The starter was a button under the gas pedal, which I thought seemed like a good way to flood the carburetor, but what do I know.

Sadly, he came home from work one day and it burst into flame while he was eating dinner. This was like 1977, so I guess it had a good run.
