Default New Toy: 66 Buick Electra 225 resto project























This is my new ongoing project.
53k original miles. 425 Nailhead. Power everything. Runs and drives like a dream. Needs some work on the rear end and body work.

Land Yacht!

Friend of mine had a 68 convertible, two-door. That was one comfy car.

Its like riding on a plush couch on a cloud. I honestly think 8 adults could fit comfortably in it.
My kids love it.
I love the mileage it gets when driving it nicely (23mpg), although when the secondaries are opened up the gas gauge drops almost as fast as the speedo climbs.

Hey, it's a luxury car, right down to the sweep-second hand on the gas gauge.
