He landed a small part in a movie that is not out yet and was forced to clean the car up a bit. New wide whites and some other do dads and he was off for filming.

I think adding a little style to the car made Kenny understand he could have something more than a rat. He tossed a little money at it and with a lot of help from Butch the car was turned into a decent cruiser.

I just hope Kenny understands the effort Butch put into the car. A few times I seen Butch he was beat up over working on it and while shooting color I was hurting just watching him. His back was out but he didn't give up.


There was no place to shoot the car so they brought it to my house to do it.
Who needs a paint booth!

You can't tell from the pictures but the car is a wild color. Medium blue with a tom of flake and red pearl. It will change from med blue to dark blue to purple depending on the lighting.

Yesterday Butch and Earl started putting the chrome back on it. One side is done.

havent decided yet. have been kicking around lots of options. thought about going back silver for the ease, not having to spray the jams and all. wife wants black or maybe charcoal. I was thinking white or blue. or even a two tone.

That old Buick really looks slick. Love the visors for the headlights and the roof mounted antenna.

Anytime. I'm sure he understands how much you did. I hope anyway. Ton of work you put in that old car. It sure does look better.
