This is my '67 Buick Riviera that I bought from Bellflower, L.A. I've airbagged it and shaved the door handles, fitted Astro Supreme wheels, and put a new engine in there too, a 455.
The car was shipped from L.A to Auckland, that takes about 2 weeks to sail across the Pacific ocean.

Just picked the car up from the shippers
Going over the car after I got it home,
The engine blew on the way home, water in the sump which siezed the cam

While I was waiting for the engine, the car got sacked out on Slam bags and stealth valves.
I tried some 20x9 Iroc wheels, but decided to go with oldschool Astro Supremes and whitewalls
The car at the 2008 Kumeu classic car and hotrod show, the biggest show of it's kind in NZ. The black Lincoln is my friend Shauns, you can see it here on cardomain
