1953 Buick Down On The Bahraini Street

Illustration for article titled 1953 Buick Down On The Bahraini Street

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Yes, there's an early-50s Buick roaming Bahrain!


This Buick, with bonus T-Bird, comes to us courtesy of Clark:

I am a longtime reader of the site. I always enjoy DOT series, and I think I might have something to contribute. I was visiting a friend of mine in Bahrain (I live here too) when I saw his neighbor had some nice cars outside. I shot these using my camera phone, so sorry for the green tint to the images.

Near as I can tell, its a 50-53 Buick Super 8 and a 64-66 Ford T-Bird. Thought you guys might like to see some DOTS cars that are halfway around the world from where they were made! One of these days if I see the owner I will ask about the story behind the cars.

I love old Buicks. My friend just drug home a '56 last week that was driven for only 14 years and then parked. He was going to use the front and rear fenders to make some car themed furniture but decided he couldn't bring himself to chop it up.
