I didn`t take the top pic.
Sam Barris had the touch on how to turn an ugly duckling into a swan.
is that a 53 special? its killer!
@I Like Tacos, thanks for the killer thread. I too have a 1953 Buick Special I'm working on. The inspiration is greatly appreciated!
Im looking for a 53 Buick passenger front fender, anyone?
It would be fun to see what someone could/would do to one of these as a custom!

Flashy but somewhat subdued. I would call this Buick "simple elegance". Really right !
So, you and Floppgh on Instagram both like tacos ? You two should organize a road trip to South Texas. Our Natives will make believers out of both of you. We call it Tex-Mex. Enchiladas, tacos, guacamole (pronounced wa ca mo le), spanish rice, menudo, caldo(soup), properly-prepared refried beans(refritos), and homemade corn or flour tortillas. Personally, I prefer the food from the south and west sides of San Antonio. We make a road trip out of cruising in our Deuce roadster from the far North side to these little jewels. Bring your luggage just in case you decide to stay.
Not too custom but here are a couple of mine
Now thats funny! My girl is from SE TX and we just got back from visiting about a month ago, I haven't shut up about going back and mentioning that "I could live there" multiple times!
Hey Buick people, even though I am a full on Merc guy, Ray Bozarths's 51' Buick, "Plum Wild" is one of the best and the story of his build gave me much inspiration for my build, hope you all agree!
I'd bet dollars to donuts that should read 61-63 Buick...
I'd take that bet. Looks nothing like a 61-62 skirt that I've seen.
Well Hey.. its a Buick party... my sled... #untilthewheelscomeoff
^ Custom? Don't see it.
i would've pegged that as a pontiac..
look closer mate
Apart from lowering, enlighten me. I obviously need help.
