    This is the reason why I had to take a brief hiatus from my car. I am redoing my garage. Nothing special, it's just a little one car garage that has been needing some TLC ever since we moved in almost 10 years ago. I hope this will take no longer than a month, but nothing much really goes according to plan. I might have some questions dealing with lighting. I know you all got my back. I will provide pictures as I go along.

    Thank you Mr Joel. It is very bright in the garage right now. My wife has complained about that. It's the reason why I went with a darker grey. So that the darker color can absorb some of that light. As for the bottom portion of my work bench, I already had a piece of plywood cut out that fits underneath. I have already put that back in. I will post a picture next chance I get. Thank you as well.

    Got some paint down and put the old work bench back together. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    How buttercup got her groove back

    I remember you showing me this and telling me this exact story. My mind was blown at the sight of that paint brushed engine. And I don't mean that in a good way.

    According to Mr Lamar, Mr Coker was said to be a stickler for being correct when restoring these Buicks. So well, well, well. What do we see here? Looks like we were wrong about that rear speaker switch knob. Turns out that the rear speaker switch knob is the same style knob you'd find on the Buick AC control panel. No big deal though, I already have it. Of course I couldn't avoid Mr Lamar joking with about rear speaker knobs.

    WHAT!?!? You don't stop bruh! I remember Mr Lamar showing me this car when I visited Buick Gardens. Congrats! Can't wait to see the story that comes along with your experience.

    My oldest son's interest in our Buick is minimal. Every once in a while, he will ask about or check on me if I am working on it. My youngest son, who is only 4, is too young to care. My daughter is the one who cares the most and will literally sit in the car with me as I work. It's so funny because it reminds me if when I would sneak into my Dad's Buick when I was a little, just to sit in it. Personally, I couldn't care less how much my car is worth to another person. It's priceless to me and I imagine that's why Mrs Coker sold those cars for as low as she did. You are very welcome for the pictures.

    Finally, my favorite out of all 5, the prototype 55 Buick Century. Also ran beautifully.

    Then there was one that I was more partial to...the 55 Buick Century hardtop. Started up and sounded like a dream.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Coker's Buicks today. They were simply gorgeous! I was blessed to be accompanied by my Wife and my kids and also was happy to see that both Mr Lamar and Matt were in attendance as well. All of the Buicks were sold, but for far less than what you would expect. If I am not mistaken, one gentleman walked away with 3 of them. I took a lot of pictures so that all can see who wants to. First set of pictures is of the 55 Buick Century station wagon (clone). They had a hard time starting this one up, but once they did it ran beautifully.
  18. All the Buicks were sold...but nothing near the ballpark of what think they are worth. Especially the prototype Century. I will be posting pictures on my Buick thread.

    Me and my beautiful 1956 Buick

    Ben, just wanted to send my deepest condolences to you and the Fam. I know you added a richness to your Granddaddy's life, especially with your work on the family Buick. Be well friend.

    You might have to get your own quotes to show that theirs are crap. I agree with Mr Willie. Keep pushing. Draw this thing out and buy it back for no more than 50.

    Yes, I am sure you know their goal is to give as least as they can. You will have a bit of a fight on your hands. They also don't like cases that are old. They like to resolve within a certain time frame. Use that as your leverage.

    Thank you Mr Joe. That's exactly what I used for my ceiling. I used the Valspar brand. This weekend, I finished up the ceiling with 2 coats of paint and then installed the strip lights. I should have them wired up next weekend.
