The 63 Wildcat gets new Fur


Recommended Posts

Sunday, I took the Queen Mary III to a local show, as I pulled in, I parked adjacent to 1970 Plymouth Superbird 440 six -pac car. On the show plaque, I wrote the following: "1963 Buick Super Wildcat - Hemi Killer, 440s too" The Superbird got the "Healey Chevrolet Pick" and the Queen Mary III got " Best of Show"

Last October 2008, a young lady had seen the Queen Mary III and booked it for her wedding this Oct 17, 2009. She was shocked and impress to see the new fur on the Wildcat. Was very proud to be cruising in it in her wedding gown :D :D The Tamecat wasn't impressed at all.

John, The Queen Mary III was scheduled for the new fur, she just happened to come by the garage looking for an old black car and picked the only black car there :)

Since my last post, I had my structure with the Buicks in collapse due to the last snow storm. The cars all had some damage, mostly windshields and roof dented. Last month been cutting the roof off the cars and cleaning. This weekend took the Wildcat out to see what damage occurred to the fur. The roof popped back up for the major part, still have some small dents. Also have dents on the hood, hood spear is broken, dent on the trunk. I installed new rear wheel cylinders, brakes and brake lines. I have new rubber lines coming for the front, then I will have the front wheel cylinders and brakes installed.

I can only go on Saturday if I do go to Danvers. The Riviera has Bias Ply Tires, too long of a haul for it's maiden voyage. Still cleaning and replacing some items like rugs and rubbers.
