    Your Buick is looking 'GREAT'...Love the antenna's, head lights, tail lights, and specially the gas door.

    Josef,
    The Century was the "best of the breed" in '55. Always wanted one of these when I was a kid. Same body as the Special, but they stuffed the 322 cubic inch Nailhead of the Roadmaster in it. Too bad you didn't have a good one of those 'cause it would be "just perfect" in that beautiful machine your building. (Buick resurrected the Century name in '54...kept it through '58.)

    Your work is amazing...best of luck with the rest of the build !!

    I'm not much of a GM guy, but I love this Buick. Especially the front and rear end treatments, they more than look the part. Subbed!

    Thanks for all the kind words and sorry for the lack of updates :) Hardly any activity with the Buick lately have been busy with plenty of other things in life, like titties and beer ;) But i thought i could post some pictures of my other rides, did a quick paintjob on both of them this summer, the Shoebox was done in 24h :) First off is the Panhead

    Welded a driveshaft the other day and took her out for a short spin for the first time, cutted of the splines from the original closed driveshaft and fabricated a new open one with help of two other shafts and a lathe
