1967 Buick Special that my dad bought new and I learned to drive on. September 1983. Like a dummy I sold the car a year after my dad gave it to me. My dad had given me the car in 1982. The car had an amazing running V-6 motor that was the last year for that Buick engine. I should have kept this car to give to my younger brother Mike. Mike was just about to turn 16 to get his license.

That 74 Caprice Estate is truly a classic. That rear 3rd seat facing backwards was the kicker. Kids either made faces at you if you are in a car behind them or the kids got to see first hand who was about to plow into the rear of the car. Look at the slope of that rear glass. That looks like NASCAR wind tunnel material. Vinyl wood-grain, will it ever make a comeback??????[Reply to this comment]

Azmusclecar, thanks for the kind words. My 74 wagon does not have rear facing third seat. The third seat faces front. We were a family of nine and us seven kids growing up all had our positions in the wagon, just like an army. Of course dad was the General and mom close second in command. We always sat in the same seat during all those years and I now find that kind of funny. Cheers.[Reply to this comment]

Mario, the 57 Chev was shipped to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada when I sold it. This is the other side of Canada from where I live in Ontario. Because of the great distance I have not seen the car since I sold it. It is just as well I have not seen it because I regret selling it in a very big way. Thanks for the complement, I was very happy with the way the car turned. It took me just under two years to do the car. Cheers.[Reply to this comment]
