  1. 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.
  2. 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:
  3. My personal favorite from that roof top....just look at the way the roof lays down at the back.
  4. 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....
  5. 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!
  6. 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:
  7. I really like the convenience of one kit but at what cost? I will report as to what I got and how it went...thanks for the comments, I'm guessing that there were many who restrained from blowing up one or all of the vendors mentioned. Like Banks I think we have all had issue with one parts vendor or another.
  8. Hey Lamar, are they on to us yet? Whew, good...if they only knew our plans for total 1954 Buick domination. This is just one more step in the process until its all 54 all the time. Good thing I am saying this in a PM, Imagine what they would say if this conspiracy got out? Keep up the good work soon it will all be ours Buuuwwwaahahahahahh!
  9. I have read bad things about pretty much every vendor out there and its hard to keep track. I know the forum admins prefer to keep things positive so please, anyone recommend, rather than dump on one of the big 3 (Kanter/Bob's/CARS) for this kit? Are there other companies I should look at? I would rather not piecemeal it out, it's a full replacement kit I am after for my 54 76R...Santa said I can finally get it.
  10. Oh MY MY! That my friend is my dream ride...54 76C Carlsbad Black and Red Leather int. and of course the wide whites EDIT...do the door handles look painted?
  11. Interesting gossip... GM considers revamping Buick logo | Auto news | Detroit Free Press | freep.com
  12. You know I thought it was strange that the stylists put the vent ports on top of the hood for the new 2013 Enclave...forgot about that treatment on the Wildcat.
  13. I have the same markings...I believe I was told that these are Fisher codes. This is on a 54 76R:
  14. It has to be the quintessential wedding car...great as always Bob!
  15. You must be very proud! Thank you for sharing....I find these stories very inspirational.
  16. Kinda my point, there is NO end in this "Frame off" or any other abuse of car lexicon debate. It seems to me its a destination that doesn't exist? We keep heading East but when do we actually get there, and how do we know it?
  17. Ok next debate.... If you keep on traveling east, when will you reach the east? And what will lie east of you then? I tell ya, the depths we reach on debating inane topics on these forums baffles me, even worst I actively and happily participate. Pie anyone?
  18. I actually took the frame off the body by putting the jack stands under the body and the two jacks on each end of the frame....removed all the bolts then lowered the frame. Is that a frame off???? lol, I enjoyed marveling at your "Perfect" example of a 54 Fred. I also enjoyed meeting you. I will soon be posting the pics taken in our engine bay thread for future reference for others.
