1955 Buick Special 2-Door Hardtop Riviera (Bernard)

Last updated Jan 1, 2014

My wife and I had been looking for a fun project car for the family to enjoy and landed on late 40's to mid 50's GM iron (Cadillac, Buick, Chevy). After doing a lot of research and checking out some examples for sale and decked-out versions at car shows, we landed on the 1955 Buick. We found this one locally and picked it up two days later.


SLOW. But in a cool, stately kind of way.
