Our '31 Buick on the Crazy Horse Monument in South Dakota on the 2006 VMCCA Glidden Tour. The car is mostly unrestored with about 65% of the exterior paint factory applied and it still has all of its factory installed interior. It was sealed up in a building in Chicago from the mid 1930's until 1970 and had a little over 20k miles on it when we got it.

This is the first year for the Straight-8 Buicks and this one has the big 348 cubic inch engine that holds 12 1/2 quarts of oil.

Mike, it was trailered out there. Because of it's original condition, we try to save wear and tear on it. Plus, my diesel Excursion pulling it in a 24' enclosed trailer gets better mileage than the car does running on its own 4 tires. Those big 4 1/2:1 compression engines really suck the gas. It gets about 7 - 10 mpg on a good day.
