- Buick "Hogster"
1932 Buick "Hogster" is mix between Hot Rod and Street Rod with European flavor. Car based on Buick 5 window coupe. Car was done for the customer, which will create it in near future.
It's not regular hot rod or street rod it's some kind of symbiosis between two famous car cultures with European approach. Hood vents are completely removed and shaved and replaced with port holes. Which are typical for later Buick models. All handles also completely removed and shaved to make car look clean. It has wood light style headlights which reminds headlights like on Buick Roadmaster and tail lights from Porsche 356. To make car look lower top are chopped. Also rear arch and fender are chopped too, so it's possible to lower car closer to ground.
- Buick have completely new chassis. Car has Heidts IFS Superide front suspension and Camaro BOLT-IN Independent Rear Suspension also from Heidts. Wheels are Steel Smothies and classic Firestone tires on it. Buick will powered by Buick V8 Nailhead 401 cu in.
So it's complete road car with classy car which can call custom or concept. But for me and customer it's tribute to customizing world.
