    Hey there I just bought a 1956 Buick Century and am going to make it into a US Army rat rod with Black and Gold paint (Army colors) She is ruff but it will be an awesome car when I;m finished . If anyone has any advise to where I can get parts for my car it would be most appriciated.

    Hi Chase! Thanks for your comments. I love your Buick. My opinion (for what it is worth!) is that you just restore it, and make some minor mods to improve its looks & reliability. I note that you plan to lower it - I think that simple mod would make it look awesome whilst retaining its classic looks. Its in such great basic original condition, it would be a pity to lose that by too much customisation. It will make a fantastic cruiser, particularly with those pillarless windows. Cheers from down under, Ian
