  2. I gotta '56 Buick Hardtop that I'm going to take the frame out of and put a 59 Buick LeSabre frame, engine, transmission, and rear end under it. Hope to be as far along as you.

    AAAAAAAAAAAND over 2 years later but we are back. Dad got the rear suspension all fabricated. Some welding and trimming needs to be done but it goes up and down nicely. I'll let him chime in if he wants to give you some details since he was the one doing all of the work (with some help from my cousin Michael).

    Thanks everyone. I told my dad to get on here and give some details. He put a lot of work into that rear suspension, I think it's going to ride really nice! We were also able to pick up a nice rear glass since ours is scratched up really bad.

    DeuceDog, I loved the burger at that Wally's Drive-Inn place near you! Sorry I texted you on such short notice. I didn't realize we would be so close and that we'd be there until lunch time. Wish we could have planned something to meet up.

    Nick, wait till I'm in the new shop. Would love to have you and Dad stop by to check out the 36.

    That would be great! We would definitely be down for that! I might go to Lukes soon so he can weld up my BSA pipes for me. If I do I will let you know when.
