Hello from Wisconsin

Post by doventur on Thu Jul 28, 2016 3:46 pm

Just purchased a 1962 Buick Special Deluxe convertible, as a project for me and my 14 year old daughter. The car is an original survivor with just under 30,000 miles. Some minor rust, interior & top in great shape, engine seized up from being stored for ~30 years. Looking forward to the project and glad I found this forum!

Will start in project page once I can get more pictures but wanted to introduce myself in the meantime.

Thanks for all the welcomes. I'm excited to be part of the forum. Looking to both learn some things, and hope to pass on some knowledge from previous restorations. Previous cars (Mainstream Chevy's) have all been cars with reproduction parts easily accessible so this will be a new challenge for me.

Bill - I'm from SE Wisconsin (Kenosha/Pleasant Prairie Area). Ironic you are from Rockford, IL. That is where my car started it's life. The original owner was a reporter for the Rockford Newspaper in the 60's.
