This is a 1955 Buick two door hardtop coupe .This picture does not allow for series identification ( Super or Roadmaster given what can be seen of the rear window line).It certainly is not a Skylark.The name Skylark was used on Buick's Sport Convertible of 1953 and 1954 and reintroduced as a series in later years.

Does anyone know what the white car is in the front of the picture that appears to have 3 headlights?

The central thing is a decorative grille element that contributed to the nickname "bullet nose." :)

I just saw it a few minutes ago. It had four portholes.

the car all the way in the back is most likely a 1956 Pontiac judging by the front bumper.

1955 Buick Super model 56R. Roadmasters and Supers have crescent shaped turn signal. [] shaped vent windows. special and century are shaped /]. Roadmaster has an outside mirror on the door, also an 1-1/2 gold crest on the door above the belt line just below the vent window.

Yes, new pic. Which makes it a Roadmaster not a Super I think.

From 1955 to 1957, all Buick series had 4 portholes except for the Special.
(My family owned a gray 1951 Studebaker Commander from 1951 to 1962. My sentimental favorite of 1950's cars!)
