The parking lot at school was pretty bare so I thought I would snap a few photos on Friday. Not the best looking Buick but it's my Buick.

I have attended many car shows with her, never wins any awards but sure gets lots of looks.

Your car is beautiful.  It looks like a winner to me.  Come to the Wheatland Buick show next year and see if the Kansas guys and gals appreciate your car...

Your car looks good to me... It looks like it is all there, chrome, stainless, portholes, grill, glass, hubcaps... even looks like it just needs some sanding before paint.  Then it will look wonderful...  Sure, the paint is bad but you have a great car.

Thank you so much!

Pictures do hide a few sins but that's Ok, I'm not trying to sell anytime soon and have lived with it for some time.

Going to try in vain to make the National next year (should things go well :unsure:).

Here in Kansas we don't look so much for perfection.  Oh, don't ger me wrong, we like a fully restored car like everyone else but we like less than perfect too.

Once again Thanks.:)

I don't see any broken 60 year old glass, so it's damn near perfect.

The passenger window was broken. Thankfully I found a solid piece for $100. I couldn't just replace the window because when I went to remove it, I found out it was broken. The rail the glass sits in rusted through at some point and was bent\broken and ripped the tabs that attach to the roller assembly off. So now the glass is perfect, except for one small bb shot but it's way better than what it was. The front window leaks, though.

In that case, it's still damn near perfect.  Be sure to pull the front rug out and bring it home for the winter storage.

Oh no, there's no where to put her now. She's all year unless it snows.

I'm waiting for a dry day to apply sealer around the outside of the window. I put some in the corner where it leaked before and it held... until the water built up around the seal and leaked where I didn't lol

It's just the right amount of "rough around the edges"

I think a "me and my Buick" is a good idea.  My son started a Facebook page for my Buick, "1956 Buick Special Riviera" several years ago which has chronicles the process and events for our Buick Special.  We have had it for 21 years.  Though it looks good in photos it is still more of a "survivor" than a restored car.

A HAPPY DAY pulling her out of the storage barn I used for a few years.

Since it was the barn I found guess I can't call my car a barn find. :lol:

It snowed today (barely). This is the car's first snow since being licensed, don't think it cared much for it. :P
