    I’m skeptical. I spot several non original items and the front fender to door fit isn’t as good as it would’ve been when it left the factory.

    That car is out on the island. You had better dress warm! It’s 18 degrees up here and the wind is cranking. -10 wind chill. I’m sure that the car will be inside a warm shop up on a lift for you to inspect. Tread lightly.

    I have owned a body shop for the last 35 years. I know what I’m looking at on the body it is the original Buick parts that you guys are great at identifying. I am leaving at 3am Saturday morning any info up to that point would help.

    Any tips on the drive would be helpful also like tolls and traffic. Leaving from Dayton Ohio.

    It all depends on the hours you will be traveling.If you come via Staten Island lets say by nine,the only thing that will cause traffic will be accidents.You will be on the safe side on the hours between 9 AM 3.PM,after that all hell is loose.Traffic here starts at 5 AM till 9AM and then from 3 PM to 7 pm.Bruno.

    What was your assessment of the "original paint" claim?

    About 70% original paint, areas that were spot painted must have been in the 80s because they used lacquer paint nobody uses lacquer anymore. All original panels 90% rust free floors solid good bones to start with.

    I have an old f250 v10 but did not trust it over all those miles so I rented a 2019 Dodge 2500 Cummins diesel pulled it like it wasn’t there.
