Stunning work Mirko.

I remembered that you started with a car that needed a lot of work but I had to revisit the start of this thread to remind myself of just how much work was needed.

May I suggest you post a before and after photo just to show the transformation...............SPECTACULAR!!

Outstanding workmanship and dedication. I would have to go back and look as it has been a while but, does this car have the early metal back bucket seats? That in my opinion would put it over the top...

Mirko!

I have only one word - OUTSTANDING! Good to see you back on the forum again, this car really going to a TOP of the LINE Buick as they were. The really Grand Final would be to take it to US for the yearly Buick meet. That would be a trip for the life.....

Hi Mirko,

If I may ask, how many hours do you have invested in this very fine restoration? Surely your pictures make it look easier than it is!
