  1. After searching all my chrome parts it appears I'm missing the 2 curved shields that partly surround the left and right Dagmars/Bullets at each end of the 55 Buick Grill Either I've lost them when cleaning up or they never came back from the Chrome Plater with the grill......lesson learned......always take photos of what you drop off and pick up. I need a left and a right (if they differ)......Not sure if they are chrome or stainless, maybe someone can clarify that for me. Either way I need a shiny straight set...........so can someone help me with a nice pair at a reasonable price? To be clear I don't need the Grill......only the curved metal trim/shield as pictured.
  2. Pretty sure I took this photo in 2002 at the Australian Buick Nationals in Tasmania.....this would have been in Queenstown and the car belongs to Rick Cincarini. Great Memories of a great trip which saw us travel for around 3 weeks around the Island state of Tasmania.
  3. Bringing this build thread back for anyone who hasn't seen it.....it's a must read.
  4. Thanks so much for putting in the effort to post this .......I for one loved watching the whole thing, of course that might have something to do with all the 55's that featured......thanks Mud.
  5. Your welcome........always glad to help a fellow 55 restorer.........they are a beautiful reproduction.
  6. Fusick sells them http://www.fusickautomotiveproducts.com/products.asp?dept=14
  7. Beautiful day in Melbourne for Christmas day...... Reached 35 degrees Celsius so probably a bit warmer than back home.Back to a cooler 20c today. Hope she enjoyed her Christmas.
  8. I'll say it again.....that was a great buy.
  9. Cool looking wagon here Lamar. I could see you taking this to the next Nationals And it's just around the corner from you!! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Buick-Century-/121807588340?forcerrptr=true&hash=item1c5c4c4bf4:g:8WMAAOSwAYtWO5i2&item=121807588340
  10. Thanks for the great video Mud.....thoroughly enjoyed it.......especially that chirp of the tires on take off......very cool.
  11. Love to see some photos of your 58 Mick. Are you in the Buick Club ...........there is a great club based in Perth Brian
  12. Wow!...........Who could ask for more. A great driver that you can enjoy while continuing on the restoration of the 2 door. Drive the hell out of it and by all means clean it up but I would not get too distracted with major repairs right away..........invest the time in the 2 door. You're always going to get you money back on this one plus more. Jealous I am
  13. Very sad news, I never had the privilege of meeting Paul but it always saddens me when we loose a fellow Buick owner.....condolences to his family and friends
  14. Thanks Mike..........hope you have luck in finding some. BTW I have 2 perfect and polished short ones that would be surplus to me if you or anyone need them for a single color car
  15. Hmmm........ Like you Mud I hadn't realised the difference and seeing I am going from a solid color to two tone I will have to look into finding some as mine are the shorter ones. Are 56 century special trims the same? Anyone got a couple they want to sell? Guess I better run an ad in the wanted section.
  16. X 2..........the quality of the photos taken 50 - 60 years ago is amazing. Do the Kodachrome slides scan better than ordinary photos?
  17. Love to see some photos of the swap meet as well as the cars attending
  18. +2 Very helpful guy and top quality system
  19. LIKE!!! I see it also had the one year only 65 Wildcat Centre Caps
  20. Very rare car........well worth restoring.......price depends on how much you want it
