this is a mild custom '59 Buick, customized unlike anything out there.
the entire car is finished & ready to show. it's a strong, daily driver grade car, worthy of in-door autorama class
showing, but also meant to be on the road & used.
it's garaged full-time & well cared for. this is my personal car, with clean title in-hand & current registration.
full working order, driven 5-7 days a week around town…get in and go.
the car is currently featured in Car Kulture Deluxe magazine for (#77) May 2016, on shelves now.
car was also feature on Kustomrama; search: Adam Woodhams
the '59 LeSabre body has been transferred to a modern version, of the top of the line '76 Electra chassis &
drive-train with power steering, power disc brakes, 3-speed automatic, and monster 455 big block Buick motor. it
stops on a dime, floats like a Cadillac on clouds, and accelerates like a dream. it fires right up, even when
cold...holds idle easy and runs like a top. unknown miles on all components, but truly strong & sharp. under the
hood was just completed and cleaned up in a sleek, dark, stealthy fashion, to contradict the exterior...matte black
engine bay with cast iron block. the motor was serviced with a full tune-up, fully rebuilt carb and distributor,
oil change, coolant flush, new air cleaner/cover, custom cut wires, plugs, belts, fuel pump, and wire tuck. the
turbo 400 transmission has been FULLY broken down & rebuilt and shifts firm with a mild shift-kit. it has maybe 500
miles on it and will last you another 100k miles, easy. the rear end is topped off and dry. brakes are all in great
working order and needs nothing. again, truly a worry-free, easy, dependable, get in and drive across the country
type car; no questions asked…drive it!things to know:
-all dash lights/gauges work but oil pressure, because the OE oil line cracked and we simply pinched it off. easy
fix, but not worth updating at this time, so we left it.
-shift gear indicator gauge does not work but column shifter works fine, so just remember the pattern: P, R, D, L1,
-the clock does not work, but most likely just needs rebuilding...set to 5 o'clock for obvious reasons. lights up.
-no horn, but the entire wheel with horn ring is intact.
-no heater or AC but fan & controls & heater core are all there and intact. air flow ducts/vents function and work
-car does not have any stereo, but is wired to charge a hanging wireless bluetooth speaker (see video) I use with
great success and ease. (we can talk more about that...not included)
-doors are shaved without poppers. the drivers door is wired with button and popper, but the solenoid failed. I do
not like electric poppers anyways, so I simply leave the driver's window cracked (see video) and reach in and open.
-rear passenger glass is stuck up. original arm in door needs rebuilding, but cannot locate part...I just leave it
up. all other windows work, including vent wings.
the car was recently completed. I’ll go thru the different systems/area in attempt to answer most questions you
may may have, so please read thru completely, first.
interior: fully gutted and redone. designed by myself using 5 colors of Zodiac sparkle vinyl with very thought out
gold details, stitching, and color combos. worked hand in hand with my upholsterer to address all details. the
entire tunnel is diamond stitched, as is the fire wall pleated, with matching trunk & lid, and even front inner
wheel fenders. the lines all match up and the unique panels have some pretty impressive details. hand painted gold
flake details on the gauge cluster and window knobs tie everything together. a sapphire blue short nap carpet ties
in the blue steering wheel & vinyl…overall the interior is my favorite part and almost more impressive than the
exterior. easy to clean & maintain too.
exterior: the car was nosed, decked, handles shaved, antenna & mirrors deleted, along with emblems & misc. trim.
removed. the rear bumper pan was smoothed into the rear quarter as well.
key holes were even deleted with custom stainless trim on each door. the front bumper was dropped 4” which makes
a huge difference with its silhouette along with how it lines up to the custom tube grill. the photos are before it
was fully dropped & aligned…the video shows how it currently sits. the headlights are brand new with a crazy
pearlescent finish no-one does.
paint: the video was mainly taken to try to capture the paint. no camera can really capture how special this
is…you truly have to see it in person. the base is a Cobalt blue metallic with two flakes laid on top. the first
is a translucent purple/teal/blue/iridescent flake that really shows itself off in the shadows and shade. it looks
like a deep ocean or starry night…but then in the sun, the second flake, is a silver base with rainbow flip-flop
properties that shift in the light. the overall pop, sparkle, and depth is pretty amazing and really works with the
roof/dash and interior. it’s wild but not obnoxious…turned out better than expected, to say the least.
roof: the roof & dash were flaked & paneled by Tyler Pullen in South San Francisco…it’s a true work of art.
wheels: one-off custom built for this car with never before done backspacing, in full chrome. also unique is
running these center caps let alone an artillery wheel on a bellflower car, also with subtle beauty rings that add
detail to lips. BFG radial white walls are practically brand new.
glass: the windshield sign is hand painted in white enamel with metallic gold accents on the exterior. all glass is
flawless and brand new. all side glass has fully rebuilt chrome trim, rubbers, and fuzzy’s. all doors, hood, and
trunk weather tripping is brand new and intact including bumpers, stops, spacers, and all misc. OE rubber parts on
suspension: it’s all custom with heavy duty mounts & bags. it was just fully wired & plumbed with a height-sensor
based management system. it allows for 3 pre-sets and full manual 4 corner adjustment. the height sensors are Bosch
brand, quality parts that account for added weight and is much more accurate than a pressure based system. has
real-time monitoring for auto-adjustment/correction. same exact technology as Accuair, but a new company we are
working with to help come to market. solid CNC billet controller, manifold and ECU. car has dual compressors,
running 15 gallons (3 x 5 gallon tanks) of air, all hidden behind the false walls in the trunk

Answering The $30,000 Entry-Level Luxury Question
Twenty years ago, a comparison between an entry-level Buick and Acura would have matched a Skylark against an Integra.
Twenty years ago, a comparison between an entry-level Buick and its Acura equivalent would have matched a Skylark against an Integra. The unfair battle would have resulted in the compact American's defeat in nearly every measurable category, as the Japanese competitor was arguably at the height of its powers.
One of the things that dogs the full comeback of General Motors is the instability of its marketing. That part of the automaker got yet another big shakeup today when GM confirmed what I have been tweeting for a few days - strong rumors that the Chevrolet and Cadillac ad accounts are walking to new ad agencies.
Cadillac, GM's luxury brand, is going into review from Fallon Worldwide, Minneapolis and the indications are that Campbell-Ewald, Chevy's old ad shop, will end up with most or all of it. C-E just announced that it was moving from its long-time home in Warren, MI to a new downtown Detroit office next to Ford Field, just blocks from GM.
The other shoe to drop shortly will be the shift of GM's most important brand, Chevy, from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners of San Francisco to McCann-Erickson of Troy, MI. McCann used to be the agency for Buick and GMC, as well as GM's corporate advertising, and has retained some pieces of business over the last few years. Sources have even told us that it was McCann that did a lot of the creative work on Chevy's new ad platform, Find New Roads. (Not to be confused with a former McCann tagline for Saab, "Find Your Own Road.")
A refresh to Buick's popular Verano sedan appears to be nigh, thanks to these spy photos that show the tweaked four-door testing in Germany.
As with the current Verano, the refreshed model will have a great deal in common with its European platform-mates, the Vauxhall/Opel Astra. Each car rides on General Motors's Delta II platform. Unlike the current car, though, the refreshed model's styling could lean more heavily towards its European roots, if these photos are any indication.
Despite its commonality with the Astra Sedan, the Verano has featured its own unique styling since arriving in the US back in 2011 as a 2012 model, with distinct fascias at both the front and back, as wells its own headlight and taillight designs. The two cars were still rebadged vehicles, but it was more subtle than it will be in 2015, when the refreshed Verano arrives. Astra-like elements are expected to dominate, particularly in regards to the headlights and taillights. That said, trademark Buick styling features will remain, like the waterfall grille. Really, then, the 2016 Verano won't be unlike the Regal - a rebadged Vauxhall/Opel Insignia, aside from a few very small styling details.
