Hey, thanks to everyone for their kind remarks. It is a great season in the Northeast and I enjoy taking the pictures and I always look forward to your pictures too. I should really invest in a better camera. Maybe after this year is over. Anyway, today I ran into another decent spot but only had my cell phone so these pictures are not the greatest, but I hope you enjoy them anyway.

JohnD: How do you go about posting your photos as large as they are. Mine are always the usual small click on them photos ? Could you school some of us on how to go about it?

Dandy Dave, I noticed that YOU have the BUICK hub/grease cap lined up JUST RIGHT in the 2nd. pic's. You did good!

Loving all these shots, now if the SUN would come out, I will shoot some of my MODIFIED 1941 Limited. Let the purist SCREAM, hehe. Scallops may be in the future, maybe,,,,,, Mr. Earl.

I will be glad to write up a new thread for that. It can be confusing. So it will take a few days to get the wording right.

Here are some pic's taken today of my modified, 1941 Limited.

I'm a bit arty, so build what I like, seats are 6 colors of Ultra Leather, headliner is 3-D in the shapes of Buick sweep spears. Plenty of back seat leg room, hehe. Note front bumper is a pieces off a 42 Buick, the '1941' is styled after Buick literature. I cut 2" off the middle upper tops of the bumper guards. I made the gravel panels out of aluminum, and bead rolled to add strength, front and rear, all inter fender panels, firewall, and engine side panels are aluminum too. Pictures are in our drive/yard.

Here a few more pic's of the Puick. Seats are out of a Dodge, exhaust is 304 stainless steel. While seated in back, and legs stretched out, YOU can't touch the back of front seat.

Thank You, it is on a rake of approx. 1-1/2". Wheel base was stretched to 142" from original 139", all due to keeping rear control arms at original lengths. The control arm brackets are up and into the frame kick up, so such required the added 3" in wheel base. I cut the inside of the frames out to get in and weld brackets, then welded back, so you can't see where such was cut/welded. Then slots were cut in the kick ups to allow control arms to move up and down. I loved Fab-ing the frame to hold new parts. The main frame is still 80% original.

Time to feature my favorite Buick Year model.....a 1957 Century in Champaign, Illinois. Our subdivision pond. [ATTACH=CONFIG]276984[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]276985[/ATTACH] Thanks for the opportunity. J.R.

Your car's color combination really pops in that picture! Nice car... nice spot.

Here are a couple of pictures of my '56 Roadmaster taken last weekend (Oct 18). A local car club I'm a member of had a fall tour, and though the colour and the weather weren't perfect, it was a nice drive through the countryside. One picture is my car beside a friend's '30(?) Cadillac, and the other in front a small cemetery, that sported some of the better colours I saw on the tour.

We finally have some color around here. So I have a picture of my lovely wife Joan behind the wheel of our 1925 "Beulah" during a drive after church.
