    Going to have a black top with the same type of material used on newer BMW's, Audi's etc... with the tan leather I think it will make for a great contrast...Thanks

    Thanks everyone on the great comments.
    40Two the intake was made by a H.A.M.B. vendor in Idaho (Hells Gate Hot Rods). Andy did a great job. He supplied the flanges for the headers that I made.

    Well I just brought it home from having the top and glass installed. Another step along the restoration trail.
    Now I have all winter to finish assembly and finally put some miles on it. I am sooo looking forward to that.
    I had to clean out all the junk that had accumalated in the car's spot. It seems no matter how much space one has it always gets filled up.

  26. The Buick looks great,I'm sure you are stoked that the car is no longer a static piece of art but a running and driving automobile! HRP

    Beautiful car! Always nice when a project gets the final stages.
     
  28. She has to put a smile on your face now!

    How about some details on the motor? Any mods besides the 3 pot induction?
     
  29. Nicely done! You've done a TON of work to get it to this point, and my hat is off to you, sir. You tackled a very challenging vehicle to restore.

    I had to laugh about your comment on space and how it gets filled up, no matter how big of a shop you have. I always tell everyone, "I'm like a fish.....I grow to the size of my tank".
