In 1978, I found myself in Arizona at a drag race working for Wide World of Sports, and I saw an ad in the paper that said "54 Buick Special Convertible. Driver. Runs Good." So I stole the company rental and drove 75 miles to see it. Love at first sight. I gave the guy $50, not to sell it to anyone else, got back to Los Angeles, sent him ALL the money ($1800), and instead of getting ripped off, he drove it to California to me! It was my only car for 10 years. White with red interior. I had to hang my head out the window to drive in the rain when the wipers would lock in the open position, and I breathed the fumes in the hot summer stop-and-go traffic. But I loved that car, and swore I would never become one of the many people who would stop me, go all misty, and say "I used to have a car just like that". I swore I'd never sell it unless it meant losing my house. But time marched on. I wanted air conditioning. And seat belts. I became gun shy of the frontal lobotomy dashboard, and the cardiac bypass steering column, and weary of the people flagging me down at 70 mph on the freeway to ask "What year is it?" I bought a Honda. And Fred started an oft repeated cycle of sitting, getting a new 3E battery, getting rolling again. And then sitting. Until 1999. Am I ashamed to say I stopped starting him up? Taking him out? Buying him a new battery? Yes. I'm very ashamed. Now I've retired. Today I called AAA and with the help of a flatbed. AND a second tow truck, I got him towed to a mechanic who SAYS he's great with 50's cars. We'll see. I know Fred'll never be a show car. I don't care. I love that car and I want to do right by him. If you have any suggestions, or referrals for Buick loving mechanics in Los Angeles or Glendale or thereabouts, please let me know. I'm waiting to hear the diagnosis. What will it take to get him up and around? I'll keep you posted. Wish us both luck. And please, don't hate me! Joyce
My plans have changed slightly, I'm still heading to Hershey, but via Los Angeles. Rather than going into details here, just check with me for stuff between Washington State and So. California and via I-80, all the way to Hershey. There may be room for some small items coming home from Hershey, check with me there. I'll be leaving WA Sept 30th; my cell phone is 360-661-6060. Thanks. Steve
Hello, for beginning, sorry for my english, I'm from Slovakia. I want to ask someone from California, preferably around Los Angeles to help me. I have one dream with my friend, to be a proud owner of Classic American car. We are planning to visit USA during september to october and we want to make a road trip from LA through route 66 to Chicago and then to New York. For that purpose, we want to buy Cadillac de Ville 1969 and recently we already have offer for preserved one. Biggest thing is, that we want to give someone this car for restoration and decent customization. For example company like West Coast Customs or Chip Foose. We want to have simple decent look of that vehicle from outside, maybe just some painting which will show map of our road-trip can be on the hood or side doors, but interior can look modern and things like good car stereo or gps navigation must be inside. Can someone please advice me good custom garages in this area? I will probably preffer bigger companies with references than smaller groups. We tried to write e-mail to West Coast Customs but they never respond. Maybe they are not interested, or they have lot of work At the end of our trip we want to sent that car back to Europe. This can be maybe interesting for that company, because that car will be representative piece of they work in Europe for future, and we plan to visit few car shows and car meetings here in central Europe. If you have any question, regarding to my post feel free to ask. Thank you all and see you on US roads
