    Some more picks of this 47 Buick. Read that it won the best of show in Finland. Love to see this rolling down the high way.

    I spent all my money on film for my camera. Just bought the book 3 years ago after looking for a long time. I don`t do Ebay.

    NICE! I have never seen this shoebox before...got any pictures of the back?
     
  8. I really like this car! Grabbed these off of somewhere when it was for sale and I was broke (nearly always - lol..):

    X2 on the black shoebox. Thinking 1955 Lincoln tail lights? Very tasteful mods, particularly the rear end.

    Nothing wrong with 55/56 Lincoln tail lights but these gems are 1955 Plymouth, probably with a nice chunk of the quarter panels. Sweeeet.

    Very nice shoebox. Would love to see come caddy sombrero caps on it. Give it an older feel I think

  19. Call me crazy, but I really dig the front end on this panel. It looks nervous.

  21. Yep, Bob Bleed owned it. These are from Rik's site:

    ^^^ That car was affectionately known as "the Fish", was owned by my HS shop teacher for many years, I rode around in it a couple of times, lots of history there. Impeccable metalwork for it's time but also kinda awkward styling, still really neat though.

    He had me put it on eBay for him and I still have the pictures saved on my computer, I'll post them below for posterity.
