Not a bad lookin ride, smoke the tires grab the gal in this 1956 Buick Gasser.
Finished last spring after a 1 year, frame off build with everything new, replaced or rebuilt with no expense spared.
I found a rust free Buick which was originally a southwestern car which the previous owner made it into a rat rod gasser tribute car.
The car was completely taken apart and rebuilt piece by piece.
The car has been featured in Old Skool Rodz, cover and feature of Eastern Rodder and I’ve been told in more mags also.
The Gasser was featured in a movie called “Tattitude” and is scheduled to be featured in a movie called “CARnival”.
This car drawers crowds and I drive it, not trailer it.
The past week I drove it on a 6 hour round trip to the Deadmans Curve Car Show at the Hot Rod Farm in NJ put on by Radir Wheels(great show).
This car was built by PROFESSIONALS which means their day job is their night job, building cars.
These are my friends and pretty much the same guys who help with all my cars.

The vehicle was built to represent a fifties race car called a gasser.
After careful evaluation of this vehicle, based on my experience (and after consulting Old Car Price Guide, NADA, Kruse International Auction Results, The Production Figure Book for US Cars, internet resources, museum and automotive experts, etc.
when necessary), I appraise this vehicle as having an actual cash value of $ 67.900.00 I do not need the money so no lo ball offer please.
I am not interested in any trades please.
Everything is pretty much written here.
It is a straight axle, no front shock, loud as hell ride.
People were shooting videos, taking pictures and acting crazy the last time I drove it on the highway.
I am buying a new house so I look at it that if I sell this, it will pay for a garage for my other cars.
The other cars shown in the pics are mine toothanks & good luckMike
