    Lookin' good! I saw a beauty of a 67 a couple weeks ago at a car show. Silver metallic w/black buckets and mini-console. The 64-5's are my favorite still, but the '67 gained a new respect from me. C-L-A-S-S

    I am not computer literate enough to post pictures of my early rides,but you may have seen my Purple 37 Buick coupe with a 455 running at the GSCA nats a few years ago. I also have a 57 Buick Special 2 dr hard top mounted on a 72 Electra chassis. the coupe is a street rod and looks it , but the 57 looks original.

    Joe, get Roberta or ?? to help ya get your pics online. or if they are digital already, e-mail them to me and I'll do it for you. I'd love to see both of those cars. I think I'm more of a hot-rod addict than a muscle-car junkie. But I do like 'em both. I'd like to find a nice '56 Buick to restify if I ever finish the projects I already have. That would fit the electra chassis the same as your 57 wouldn't it?

    Yep, that's the stage 2 in there. Just put the cam in but still have to get a cam-swap gasket set. Hey JW, how long to put 'er on the frame table and install a cage?

    It certainly is handy having Roberta just 4 miles away. She has been like a personal secretary to me for years,and I could not imagine not having her expertise available. She shoots a good game of pool also, so we have some good battles in my Buick Room

    Good shifting a 4-speed and shoots a mean game of pool. That makes at least 2 things she does better than me! At least she doesn't know extractive metallurgy (I hope)

    Joe, that 37 looks great. My pop had a 37 Chev a little lighter red than that at one time. What ET do you get out of both that and the 57?

    The 37 has a 2.56 axle and runs 14.0s at 100MPH in the first two gears. I built it for the highway and did not know at the time that a 200-4R would hold up under the 455. I have never had the 57 down the track. I have not installed seat belts and they won't let it run. It is a one legger anyway .so it would just melt the right tire. My 72 GS has a 200-4R and a 3.31axle ,and that is the perfect compromise. It is a 3990 lb. convert with AC and it runs in full street trim 13.0s at 106-7 and pulls 18 MPG

    Adam,

    How long till I can do it, or how long will it take??

    How long till I can do it.... depends on how things go... looking at Winter/Spring 2004

    How long will it take?

    That depends on how much cage you want .. typically a full cage will take 6 weeks or so, start to finish. Obvioiusly, this will all be custom built.

    George,

    Very nice, tasteful wheel tire upgrade. Specs on the wheels/tires?

    Tell me more about the disc upgrade, prices, part numbers and install.

    George,that is one really,really nice looking 67 GS. And that 37,Joe that thing is wicked,street rods are awesome.My dad had a relly nice 40 f@rd coupe when I was a kid we took it to the street rod nats a couple of times.I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with that car yet.building a street rod is more like an engineering feat compared to building a 60's or 70's car.Buick street rods are cool.
