    I've been looking at my blower motor housing and keep thinking I'm getting a lot of heat soak when the AC is on. I thought about wrapping it in some sort of heat wrap and then realized its roughly the size of a turbocharger... so i got a turbocharger heat blanket and it fits pretty good haha

    I fired up the 56 convertible for the first time in a while and the oil burning is getting worse! this picture is after running it for just a few seconds. behind me is a wide open door. I'll be saving up for some forged pistons and rods, hopefully a January or February project

    Some black friday sales helped kickstart engine rebuild 2.0. Got these forged eagle rods! finishing up a project in the shop now, hoping to get the Buick's engine out soon.

    I don't have the hub to hub measurement but the track width (center of tire to center of tire) from the factory is 58" and these are wheels with a larger backspacing. so wheels with a lesser backspacing, like I have now and like the ones originally on these Buicks, will bring the track width closer to about 60"

    From what I read online, it looks like the hub to hub measurement is 61 3/4" wide. as you see, it fits extremely well under the special / century body
