RealRides of WNY - 1969 Skylark

This 1969 Buick Skylark Custom, complete with what looks like a set of Olds Cutlass rims, is seen here at the start of the 2018 Hemmings Motor News Great Race, which ran from here in Buffalo to Halifax, Nova Scotia beginning late in June last year. In the front seat of the Team #123 car are driver Arnie Stephens and navigator Lynn Frederick, both from Canmore, Alberta. From the dealer plate still attached to the trunklid, it looks like the Skylark was bought new at Jenners Motors in Edmonton. Unfortunately, Hemmings seems to have removed the 2018 results from their web page, but we do know that the Skylark finished, as it can be seen around the 1:50 mark in a YouTube video taken at the finish line on Canada Day, July 1st, in Halifax.
