Wow!

Beautiful car, and I admire your hard work and dedication. The only one in Russia is something to re proud of . It's like the little car sat there in that garage for twenty years just waiting for you. You're a lucky man.

Hello everyone! Long time has passed since my last visit. A lot of things had happened. Was visiting a lot of car shows. Car was really attracting attention. February pulled out engine for rebuild. Now waiting for parts to come. Will cover it in my next post.
In the mean time doing some body works. Long time ago Buick had front right side collision. And was badly repaired. So when the engine is out I finally came to it. Right side as my body shop guy told me was not possible to repair. Too damaged after bad repair

So we cut it out and I came to my old friend. He is so kind metal guru. In three days he made me full copy. First he unweld all parts

Then start making copy exact factory looking copy
