    Thank you for the replies. For now it is staying as is. I am adding the dual exhaust with bellflower tips next weekend and then it's gonna be drive it for awhile. If I sell it it stays as is. If I keep it I am changing the paint and flakin the top and FIXING the a/c so i can take off the tint. This is a colabo between me and the father in law. We both own the car so we are kicking ideas around and tossing out ones we dont agree on. I will def check out your site Eryk, once I get a diff email not with gmail, it wouldn't let me register.

    48BuickProspect, sounds like we're on the same page with our Buicks. A lot of these guys replying don't realize the skirts are an integral part of the body on these Electras and such. My 64 has looked just like this since I "finished" it in '88. Tried to make it look like I thought one would look back in '65 or so in California at any drive-in. Wheels are 65-66 Buick. Some simple shaving. Color is '61 T-bird Aqua. Interior is kind of a stock pattern only done in a white vinyl wide pleated style. It was kind of hard to resist bolting on a pair of spots and lakers at first since that what I was used to seeing everywhere.

    I did the same thing. Shaved the white's on my tires to about that size. I just hate the gold color but dont have the $$ to up and paint it. The hubcaps are stock 66 electra caps with a bullet added on. I have the same stance as yours except the back is slightly up more. If I knew how to weld the handles would be history.

    VERY cool car! That's more 60's than 99% of so-called "Bellflower" cars being built these days. Much respect to you.
