I bought the car from a car show, it needed help. bought for 2000. I have been working on it four years now. the car is all steel. I found a guy on ebay that makes body parts for 1937 and 38 dodge. the rockers were replaced both sides and the dog legs both sides. the pan under the trunk was also made a by real craftsman. the car was taken down to the bare metal ,epoxy primer and now ready to paint. new wiring harness with fuse box. generator changed for a alternator. 12 volts now. keeping everything as stock as possible .
Some paintings from my series called "Rusty Gold". My desire is to try to convey the feel of the rust, the smell of the old gas and oil as well as the quiet and distinguished decent into decay that these wonderful old vehicles display. These vehicles represent the style of a hardworking, longsuffering generation. Even in their decaying state they still have an air of class that modern vehicles can't touch. These are works of art the likes of which we will never see again.
Photos of my well-worn interior. I believe the seat covers were replaced many years ago. My best clue is the rear armrest that does not look like it is made of the correct material according to Buick brochures. The lower seat trim and headliner may be original. The doors are so ratty they have to be original.
Comments are welcome.

The 2016 Peerless National Meet was held on the property of Pistorius Collectible Autos in Odessa, FL, on April 1-3, 2016. Friday was the Bonfire Cookout, Saturday the Car Show, Sunday the Tour. Saturday was nearly a rain out, but we were still able to pull off the difficult task of displaying the 3 P's all together. Pictured are the Best-in-Class winners- 1926 Pierce-Arrow (Wayne Hancock) 1929 Packard (Chuck Lesnewski) 1927 Peerless (Ron Martin).
My 1969 Riviera had interesting performance modifications when I bought it in the 1970s. Factory GS handling, Stage 1 engine, and Kenne Bell Racing gear. Now it also has a Grand National 4-speed and 3.42 posi.
My Step-father was very proud of the blue 1965 Riviera he picked from the dealer showroom. In the '70s, I crashed it for him. Lesson learned: never let your friends do your brake job for cheap.
My all black well-preserved, early-production super wildcat is well optioned and recently refreshed. It's also got a new hot rod motor (the original numbers-matching motor is in storage). And, yes, I've upgraded the brakes.
