    Buick had the best looking GM cars of that era. I'd absolutely love a chopped 50 fastback.

    Don't know who this belongs to or where it is from but it is my idea of what I would like to drive if I had a leadsled buick custom.

    I haven't had this 52 long but I'm loving it. Took it on a 120 mile trip last weekend and it performed great.

    Fatman M-2 clip in front with bags in rear. Think I might add shockwaves to front to raise it some when driving.

    alright Timelord what did you do for ride height? and is it static. I want to do a 3 inch static drop on mine but am unsure of how the stock closed drive line will be. Anyone can chime in on this info please.

    I cut my coils a little at a time until got it where I wanted. Also got new rubber frame bumbers and cut some of the end off .ride is ok about what I expected for cut coils When I can afford would like to go with dropped uprights . No problems with closed drive at all. Car is low for some driveways,bumper will hit parking bumpers and curbs.

    Timelord how far of a drop was it and does it matter which side of the coils get cut, how many coils did you end up cutting off? and about how much did you cut off the rubber bumper? Thanks
    Chopcars nice roadster look!
