The "50 Year Itch", this stoic and uniquely rare "53 Buick Super Convertible" rests on a very thorough and respectful 6 year restoration inspired by checking-off one of the very last items on "The Bucket List". Driven by one of life's journeys and 5 decade old memories, the goal was to duplicate a long lost car, that had brought a retired automotive enthusiast from Nebraska to the San Diego, California area in 1956, only better than the car he had scraped up enough pennies to buy himself, almost 50 years earlier. Over the the years he had restored a couple of Corvette's but with only 6,701 of the these Super Drop-Top's produced, he knew that finding the one he could afford, would be a Super Challenge.

The search continued until 2006 when he was finally able to locate a rock solid, low mile and needle in a haystack type project. A single family owned model 56C that had been carefully maintained during it's 1st life, passed from Father to Son and finally to a 60 car Museum for display when a heavy snowstorm resulted in damage to several cars within the collection and only minor damage to the windshield of the Buick. Shortly thereafter, a full restoration was organized, repaired and for some reason, it was never fully completed. During this purchase, not only was he surprised how solid and complete the car was but he was able to establish a long term friendship with the original Family.

The complete and thorough nut/bolt restoration from this point would take 6 years, throughout this process, he had other car buff friends help him navigate and complete the restoration. During nearly every step, he had help from somebody, particularly when he had some health issues that slowed the project. "If it weren't for friends and relatives, I could not have got it done". In closing, he was able to enjoy his journey once again and rest easy, knowing his bucket list was complete. It's now your turn to re-visit yesterday...
