1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years

My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He was the last one to hear it run until today. It has not been started since 1961. The motor was stuck so we dissembled it, replaced the rings, rebuilt the top end, installed a new gas tank and lines, replaced the bakelite timing gear, rebuilt the carb, new Exhaust, brakes, tires, battery and wiring harness since the mice had chewed up the original. We pushed it out of the garage, primed the fuel system and it fired right up as you see here. By the way, I could not see a thing hardly through the camera lens due to the bright sunlight.

Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
