Here are a few pics of my 1959 Buick. To me, no vehicle speaks "Atomic" better than this. From its exagerated canted fins to its Space Age dash board this vehicle is like a compfy guided rocket. I have had the engine, transmission, and running gear rebuilt and am getting into position to do some body work then paint. Hopefully I can get it to a FOM event or two.

NICE unit, there Bourbon. Oh, the car's roc'n too! After you get a nice solid paint job on there I recommend paying attention to the sound system. You can certainly maintain authenticity with the factory am radio (tubes, natch) but you may want to take advantage of after-market technology and play your own discs:

Now that's what I call Hi Fi on the Hi Way! Just don't try to operate this on, say, the Bruckner Expressway.
