Description: This is Resilience, a 1952 Buick custom, owned by Erik Hansen, built by Tim Strange of Strange Motion Rod and Custom Construction, and designed by Tim, myself, and Erik and Paul Hansen.

Starting with a 1952 Buick Riviera (Model 45R), Resilience is a custom car built with reverence to the custom car culture, its pioneers, and above all, the design and excitement that embodied the mid-20th century. While the car retains those elements commonly associated with a custom car, it grew to be something more during the design phase of the build. Taking cues from the fantastic era of the GM Motorama and concept cars of the 1950’s, as well as the show floor works of art that many enthusiasts recall from the Autoramas of yesterday, a distinct theme began to emerge.

Inspiration comes from a variety of sources, including 1950’s sport and pleasure
boats, mid-century industrial design, kitchen appliances, transistor radios, televisons and more. Our team paid special homage to the concept cars of Harley Earl’s Advanced Styling Studio, mixing modern touches throughout. The result is a custom automobile designed with purpose. Every modification was chosen carefully, and exists to complement the areas surrounding it. The goal was a cohesive design that did not bow to convention or trends, seeking instead to appear timeless.

We are proud that each of the modifications performed are readily understood on their own, or when viewed as a whole.
