    Wish I could have gotten this one out by itself and with the hood and decklid closed for some REALLY nice shots.

    '57 Buick with a nice chop, beautiful paint in a sweet color and a 425 Nailhead under the hood.

    Enjoy!

    Nicely done. Love the 50's cars.
     
  3. That must really have a been a bitch planning that chop. Looks great.

    Exactly what I thought too. As smooth and clean as this car was it was obvious someone was really good with the metal work!
     

  5. That is Richard Zocchi's old Buick. It was built in 1977 by Rod Powell for Richard.

    Looks like it still has it's original candy red paint that was done by Himsl/Haas.

    One of my favorite Zocchi cras, glad to see it's still lookin great!

    Wow, there is NO WAY in looking at this car that you'd think the paint had that much age on it! No cracks, chips, bubbles, nothing but perfect, straight, and beautiful. I already loved this ride, but that just makes me respect the metal work done on this car even more...
