    Ken:

    Great looking photo, but then again, the subject matter was easy. Buicks are easy to work with.

    Is this Bob's '55 Century Concept?

    The photo below was taken at the 1955 Chicago Auto Show.

    Is this Bob's Buick?

    It appears to be two tone, but can't say for certain.

    No kiddin' Lamar! I've been in Honest Charley's twice and they've had a Buick in the main bay both times. Top notch work going on in that place.
