    Great Car!
    WE have the same car Alabama "Barn Find" 37,00 miles. Went to the National Buick show in Charlotte, NC. and found a guy from Colorado with 38 cars he is parting out. I am away from home this weekend send me a note and I will send his address to you. 58 parts are tough to find.

    Awesome car! And thanks for putting up that link for the compressor. I was shocked to see the place is 30 min from my house that sells it. Actually next door to one of my customers! I have been looking for something like that how often do you grease it? I saw it has a zerk built in for lubrication.

    Okey !:) Then i can totally recommend you to go over there and buy one! Each 3 months it says but i guess it depends on how much you use it. I was very surprised over the performance! atleast 3-4 times faster then the two viair compressors i had before.

    Gorgeous car. The 57 and 58 Buicks and Olds hardtops are my favorites of that era. They really need nothing beyond lowering and wheels. They kinda rolled off the line already "custom". Yours is SICK!

    One of the best custom 58 Buicks I have seen! The fact that you are driving it in Sweeden makes it that much cooler!

    I'm building a bagged 58 right now. Can you please tell me about what parts you used for the front suspension (bags, shocks, etc) I know that you are using Firestone bags, but I was wondering if you had a part number.

    I'm in the middle of an enngine swap to a 455ci Buick, with at TH-400. Becuase I'm getting rid of the Pitch-Swithch tranny, I have to replace everything from the trouque tube back. I'm using a Frod 9" and I'm looking at getting a 4-link built. I don't need it to bounce up and down the street, just to sit nice and low lke yours.

    Very nice ride. I've got a 55 Super. I'm in the planning stages right now but bags are definitely part of the plan. Those Bellflower pipes look awesome. Might try that on mine.

    Beautiful car, the bellflower tips took it to another level. That compressor place is 10 minutes from where I live. I'm going to have to steal your idea and run that. Once again, kick ass and beautiful car!
