DM '48 Buick as 1:24 replica of Detroit Golden Jubilee parade float (PICS)
During recent years, photos have surfaced on the Internet, showing the very cool parade float that Buick Motor Division entered into the 1946 Detroit Golden Jubilee.

The 1946 Detroit Golden Jubilee parade furnished an opportunity for the automakers to remind the public that WWII was over and passenger cars were again rolling off the assembly lines.

The Buick parade float showcased a new '46 Buick integrated into Buick's new post-war "bombsight" hood ornament. A Buick collector in Indianapolis recently borrowed the idea to create his own 1:24-scale parade float around a DM '48 Buick Roadmaster convertible.

Here are photos from the Detroit Golden Jubilee parade and the 1:24-scale tribute. Please note that no DM model was harmed in the making of this parade float!
