    I got this Buick as a Christmas present when I was 15 (Thanks Dad!) We repainted it, rechromed the bumpers, rebuilt the transmission, and then it was my daily driver for many years. Only had 1 breakdown - the rotor bit it. Since then, I've done another repaint, and a complete interior, brakes and tires a few times.

    It's been awesome having a big American 1950s boat that wasn't a 55/6/7 Chevy. Turns heads ad starts conversations everywhere I go.
  • Description:
    Cascade Blue and Polar White with Blue and White interior. All original. Added seatbelts and tastefully added a radio.

    BountyFlyer - I seemed to have seen that in one of your other posts. I'd love to see some photos in the garage. I'll post some pics of the interior. I redid all the upholstery a few years ago, so it looks pretty nice. Great having a big ole Buick to store the Trabi in, isnt' it?
    Aaron - thanks. Those are the original colors, but they were originally reversed, cascade blue on the roof, white on the middle and bottom.

    I love the mid 50s BOP (Buick, Olds, Pontiac) cars! Really dig the color too. Cool to have something a little different from a 55 chevy you see all over. Nice ride!
