My Dad's 56

In 1957 my Dad had 2 special things in his life. His '56 Buick Century and his girl. His girl soon became his wife and the need of a flashy car were soon out-weighed by the responsibilities of starting a family. Although the car was gone, his memories always went back to that car and how great it was. A little over a year ago, that girl, my Mom, passed away. When helping my Dad sort through photos for the funeral, i came across a photo of his car and my Mom.. That picture is now one of my prize possessions. The other photo shows what has been a 5+ year effort by myself to recreate my Dad's car. Short of a windshield install and some mechanical work, my Dad will again have his special car back!
