I've had this car since April of this year(2011)and I've been meaning to start a thread on here to share some of my restoration efforts with others. I, myself, enjoy reading all of the continuing resto' threads on here and find them motivating and informative so I wanted to start my own. I sometimes find that I forget to take pictures while I'm working on something until I get it done so I'll post what I can. I've already done 100's of things to this old Buick that I wish I would have thought to document at the time. For those of you that don't know me, my name is Robert. I'm 28 and my Dad and I bought this car to work on together. I absolutely love cars from the 50's and older and this 1952 Buick was on my "Dream Cars" list. It's the first of what I hope is many purchases from that list. Anyway, we plan on keeping this car all original using only NOS, original, or reproduction parts when necessary. That being said, it is going to be a driver. I have no interest in having a show car. We plan to go through all the mechanical aspects of the car and get it completely roadworthy for now so that we can drive it around for a few years and enjoy it at local car shows/cruise-ins. Long-term plans are for a frame off restoration which we are planning on doing ourselves as much as possible. Thanks for reading this and I hope it provides as much motivation and information for you as all the other restoration threads on here have for me!
