1951 Buick Special

i am the proud 3rd owner of this here Buick. purchased it as and all original car, daily drove it as i modified it. it is still not "done" but well on its way with the complete drive-train worked out. still got the og straignt 8 now backed by a 700r4 (thats overdrive). air bag suspension with 4-link and even a/c for those hot florida summers. there are still a few more changes that need to be made before it gets its final finishes. so the top has come off and put back on 2 1/2″ lower.
