    Hi folks!
    Just got me a new set of wheels :D, a 52 Buick Special 2 door sedan deluxe. It was up in Fairbanks and a friend trailered it down to me Saturday. No motor or tranny, but I already know what I'm installing in it... :)

    Would like some ideas on installing a 50 Super dashboard along with the matching interior door trim.

    Also suggestions on seat conversions or rehab and covering of the OEM set.

    Thanks, and I'm looking forward to seeing pics or links to some custom 50-53 Buicks. I've searched Google already and downloaded pics of some vehicles for some ideas...

    Cold enough you won't lay down on the concrete floor without a creeper... :) Oh, actually it's in the 50's because my furnace is in there.

    Thanks guys. I've updated both my account, and avatar (borrowed from somewhere on the internet).

    You guys have very nice rods. I prefer the looks of the 33 Ford better in its hiboy guise versus channeled. That 37 Ford with the Packard grille looks great. I've never seen one with a 48 grille, its always been 36 or 37 instead...

    My favorite rods are: 32 hiboy roadster, 32 five window hiboy coupe, any full fendered 34 Ford, and the 36 Ford five window coupe. Following those are the 37-39 Chevy's, 49-50 Ford coupes, and 50's Buicks.
