    1st project car purchase in almost 20 years. Had a bunch when I was young, got married at 23, Insta-dad to 2 kids, barely getting by for years. Finally in a spot, at 40, I can get back to it.
    Got a '50 buick Special. Straight 8, bagged 4 door. '65 401 nailhead in the garage to build over the winter and drop in, hopefully, summer 2021. Just a cruzer. 1st ever Buick. Ill have questions I'm sure. She's gunna stay rough, but not too rough. Kinda wierd putting much $$$ in a 4 door, but this car wears them pretty well, and hell...I'm a family man.

    Past cars:
    57 Fairlane 312 t bird special (the one that got away) never seen another. 500 trim on a 2 door post - factory ordered 312. Kick myself everyday I sold it. Didn't know how rare it was at the time.
    67 cougar - 289
    57 chev long bed - straight 6
    60 t bird - 352
    64 t bird - 428

    Good to be back.
