  1. Agreed, the Barrett Jackson effect is strong with this one...
  2. Please feel free to forward my thoughts.....
  3. Yea, if you want the true experience then why change it....even incrementally? "Might as well" is a powerful force, its hard to see it in real time but there comes a time when you realize you may be chasing something you dont need or even want.
  4. I sincerely regret not getting one back then...I was not ready to work on the car at that time so I put it off.
  5. It was meant to be used....finally found a home! As to a previous statement about parts availability, I continue to be happily surprised how many parts are so available for my 54. My parts guy at a local shop loves when I walk in...he gets to look for interesting things but really they end up too easy most of the time.
  6. Thanks...it was a nice time with my wife and Buick, movie sucked though. The Great Gatsby was not so "Great"
  7. Love it! ........it will be nice to get back on track with my resto, what a feeling when you make something look that nice.
  8. Looks perfect to me! It"s one of the first things I notice when looking at a restored engine bay...rad and air cleaner dings.
  9. It was not a good day for either me or the Buick....
  10. I may have missed it in this thread but insurance for damages is a very important thing to know prior to transporting. What is the value of the car? Bill of Sale or Market Value in your area? I had a recent run in with bad damage, I got lucky...the carrier is taking care of the full repair costs which will exceed the value of the car. I could have been screwed for thousands.
  11. I don't think any of us can comprehend what a thread like this will mean to so many over so many years. I can go back to some forums that I posted on 15 years ago, I can only wonder how long your words and images will help throughout the ages.
  12. I will lose sleep over these images....I now have to explain the coming night terrors to my children. Thanks Guys
  13. Love the term "Sub Goals" = Eating an Elephant one bite at a time. That is a major hit in the process that many of us first time dreamer wannbe restorers gets stuck on....that mountain that develops in front of us that seems suddenly impossible to climb. ......like others have said, this will be an archive for guys like me. Thank you for taking the time to document it here.
  14. No doubt...that was a fun day, nice to meet you and Mr Robert E. I was going through some of the pics, man that Buttercup....what a find.
  15. Wrong year eh???? I knew this picture would come in handy one day......explain this. You sure look happy in the, achem....new model year:
  16. There are no short cuts to quality paint jobs...also there are no ways to fake hark work, honest effort and yes expertise. Old Tank seems to me, to not be one to endure amateurs results, so you must be doing something right like a pro. Love the work....
  17. Also here are 54 of my favorite Buick's....too bad they all didn't make it to the Nationals. There's always next year baby!
  18. I love the old add pics from the magazines...I was going to post some but I did already make a show of them a while back:
