There is much to be said and respected of the automobile designs of the 1950's. This is the passenger, front door of an abandoned 1951 Buick RoadMaster. To a series well known for its mass of steel, this intimate view of the door interior shows the design detail not only in aesthetics but in fabric stitching.
It is possible this particular car was used in law enforcement. There is a post mount spotlight on the drivers side and you may notice the Driver's Accident Report form in the seat. There were additional, empty forms under the seat. This car has many stories to tell.
