Chop, Drop and Drool!  When we say we have a car here at Happy Days Dream Cars in Warrensburg, Missouri that was awarded the Goodguys 2006 Cool Custom Award so you know we must be referring to a very prestigious automobile!  Before the complete transformation, the car was a 38,000 mile 1950 Buick 2 Door survivor car tucked away in a storage unit in Southern California. When discovered, it had a solid and rust free body tanned by the warm California sun - a perfect candidate for what was about to happen.  Since completion, this car has been a true crowd pleaser. You may even recognize this car as it has appeared in several national publications to include the May 2006 edition of American Rodder Magazine.  Open that magazine and it is the very first car you see featured in an exclusive 8 page article!  Imagine how many man hours went into creating this amazing ride! The laborous and detailed restoration using many period correct Cadillac parts, state of the art accessories and blending the talents of some of the most notorius custom car creators on the West Coast resulted in what is best described in one word -delicious! , this car even retains its original owner warranty, car manuals and dealership brochures, we even have the original (now yellowed a teensy bit) newspaper ad Buick used in 1950 – more delicious!
