Restored with minor performance upgrades.

I'm not sure that at the height that engine is sitting, if the drive shaft exists the firewall through the radio and bisects the front seat.

I do not know the owners name, but this car was owned by the winner of the Best in Show Riviera at the most recent ROA meet held in Reno.  That award winning Riviera was destroyed in the same California wild fires.  The restoration on the picturned car had just been completed.  ? The gentleman lost his home and everything in the fire.

I deleted my prior post due to it's inappropriateness. I apologize to any of you that I offended. It was totally my mistake. I feel bad about that post, but worse yet for this fellow and family, and all the others who lost so much in the fires that seem to incessantly consume the West.  I can only hope they find some comfort in saving themselves, and that the insurance companies treat them fairly.

I think you were posting just a picture of a Buick you don’t like to see in that condition just as thousands of pictures you find on the internet. Problem at times is that one finds out a little bit of history and someone close to the forum and emotions sinks in. I think ? this is good to learn about the particular situation. if you had not posted, we probably would not find out about the misshaped. Me I would not be offended and don’t sincerely think anybody else would.

Not sure what to make of this.  Perhaps a "3-hour tour"...?  :unsure:

Never been here but this is an iconic bar in West Miami, Fl about 8 miles from home. Is call 7 Seas Bar and I have seen this 55 parked there as advertisement since I came to Miami around 1973. Pity  they have not done anything to it

Shame really.  

I thought the same thing,  but then, I thought:

It's not in a junk yard, I bet it gets tons of attention and is appreciated and who knows,  maybe (hopefully) it influenced someone or more than one to find and fix an old Buick......

Drive by in your 54. Let the owner see what a top notch Buick looks like.Maybe inspire him/her to restore this old girl.

This Buick was built up from a big 4 door sedan and other left over parts.The owner has a lot of parts stored in Texas, as I recall, but lives here in Ontario. It does stand out at car shows !
