    I gotta say I had my doubts but they look great. What length did you decide on?

    Que magnifique! L-O-V-E that ride... Perfectly executed, 10 out of 10....I never get tired of old buicks.
     
  5. That grille must have 1,000 pieces. I love 58 Buicks.

    Now i got my ExtremeFlow compressor installed and i'm more than satisfied with the performance! 0-200 psi/0-14 bar pressure in about 55 seconds, my old dual viair 480c took about three-four minutes. and it doesn't make a sound!

    Looks good. Did you build the mounting bracket or by something?
     
  18. That's really a nice ride! I wouldn't worry about going any lower though. Lower isn't really an improvement IMO. When you get the front bumper rechromed it will be a HOME RUN!!! Love the Bellflowers too...

    Looks awesome man. Tell me more about the suspension etc... is it still a torque tube drivetrain? is it clipped?
     
  21. You can see why these stunning cars were second only to the Caddies for their opulence.

    Känner till york, klumpig sak som spottar olja.. denna är ju en ombyggd ac pump med fettnippel som behöver fyllas typ 1 gång i halvåret med 2 pump med fettsprutan. 0-14 bar på 55 sek.. den känns riktigt bra
