1957 Buick CenturyReview
The "banker's Hotrod" — Century during the late '50's combined the high performance Roadmaster engine with the smaller, Special body which made the car quite a performer. My first car was a '57 Special 4-door that I got from my grandfather, which unfortunately didn't survive Mt. St. Helens. I've looked on and off for 30 years for a Century Riviera hardtop and fourd the perfect car a few years ago and was fortunate enough to get the car. It is restored to factory stock except for glass packs, Roadmaster headlamp rings, front disc brakes and slight lowering.
Pros: Beautiful and fast - everyone loves this car.
Cons: It's 50 years old and quite rare so repairs and parts are a challenge.
