    I purchased the Bozio Buick from John Bozio in 1977 then sold it to Red Mc Cormik in 1979, before moving to AZ. Red sold the car and it was shipped to Sweeden. The last pictures of the car were taken in 1986 in Sweeden. Thats the end of the trail. I understand that the car is tucked away in a garage some were in Sweeden..
    I have created a Buick like the Bozio Buick. But have changed a few things. But will like to know if the Bozio Buick is alive and well in Sweeden

    Nice to see your clone of the early version. I saw the car finished 1983, chopped, painted black, Skylark wires... A real nice custom!
    I have photos of the restored custom somewhere but with boxed of +20000 photos it might be hard to find.... The car is still in Bengt's possession, I´ve heard that he his planning to show it again next year (I haven't seen it for 25 years!). You can get in touch with Bengt though his company "Seeburgs Top & Parts Service" (he works with windows and convertible restorations for old American cars) ph +46 500 42 55 00

    I did search and I found the photo! This is how the Bozio Buick looked in 1983, and from what I know it still looks the same.

    any of you guys got any remembrance of a 1932 ford 5 window with the top cut off of it channeled over A rails with the doors welded shut?? would have been metallic red or black I believe?? used flat stock for windshield stanshions. I've got a homebuilt title from 1960, it was built then in delaware or maryland

    also! how about a red 32 five window with the rear quarter window covered up from western mass in the late 50's early 60's?? was channeled, ran an olds

    It was supposedly last seen "in an alley" in West Palm Beach Florida according to Mike Scott of 'Murphy and the Striper". Who knows ? I liked it better when it was a 55 Chevy convert with the Vette grille,58 lights and Pontiac bumpers.

    Anthony.... Your absolutely RIGHT... The original Pirate was a great looking car... Back then The owner of the Pirate (Damn I cant remember the name KERSHNER?) and Les Dunham were in heavy compitition Les had built the Scorpian at that time... After its first showing the Pirate was ripped apart for a major redo... Where I really think that the Pirate lost its design feature.... I also heard that it had been seen in an alley somewhere.... The last time that I seen the Princess was about 10 years ago on a trailer (Restored).... I think that Mark VanAcker has it now....
