  1. Whoever dented that dash must still feel it today, ouch!
  2. Nice work, wonder what the highschool mascot is...the Butchers?
  3. Nice buy! I'm definatelly jealous, where abouts did it come from?
  4. Good thread, I recently was in a similar situation with a CA car. Seller was determined that the title would be clear but wanted money down ASAP. Was pulled from an impound yard with a missing fuel tank because it was intended for the scrap yard. After a little reading of the CA DMV site, it looks like the expenses of renewing the registration, existing fees, and all title transfer can weigh a serious cost. Even if the vehicle itself is inexpensive, the pains of getting a title and transport were equal if not more than the car itself.</SPAN>
  5. Wow, off the wall is an understatement. You gotta give the guy some props for originality, reminds me of the crazy custom Hot Wheels from the '70s
  6. Sure thing, it's a road that follows down and skips across the Mississippi river starting around Hastings, MN I believe and I've been wanting to ride from there south for a day or something to go thru all the bluffs. I've seen some of it from on the river and can only imagine how amazing it would look from the scenic road. http://www.mnmississippiriver.com/camp-lacupolis.cfm
  7. I knew what the answer was before asking about the 2000 mile road trip, but it is impressive that it is roadworthy. The tires the same as when it was sitting for all those years or did you replace them along with your list of new/updated parts?
  8. Sounds like a great excuse to hitup the great river road for a long weekend ride with the bike, thanks for the heads up.
  9. I feel I can relate to this as I turned 30 last year and have many favorite classics and that ranges from the 50s to 1970. To me everything after that is not very desirable to "collect". Most all of my friends are not on the same page of loving the 50s as they'd rather have Chevelles or Cameros, personal taste and probably fueled by speed. As for me, the 50s seem to define an era of design and manufacturing that will never be seen again and the 1959 Cadillac being the pinnacle example. I respect this and the ’55 Buick stands out to me like a busty blond eyeing me up at the end of the bar. The
  10. Hello, I'm Adam and have been obsessed with finding a 1955 4 door hardtop Buick for the last two years. I live in the rust belt capital it seems, so my search has been across the US and leaving me to find a car that seems to be close to the cost of getting it home. I like to ride sport bike (currentlly a Honda '98 VFR800), offroad trail riding with the 400EX when I can and the rest of my time is spent at work or with my young family. It's a tease to want one of these land yachts, as I'm sure getting one road ready can be almost as costlly as aquiring it. I hope to learn from you folks and mayb
  11. She's a beauty, what's the chances she could make a 2000+ mile road trip?
