"I had a few "Yanks" before but always wanted a Buick. I saw the previous owner of this one driving it on the highway nine years ago and flagged him down. I asked if he wanted to sell but he said 'no' but I gave him my number anyway.

"Two days later he called me and we agreed on a price. I bought it as an ongoing project and since then have replaced the engine and gearbox with an original and have probably invested R350K in her.

"I'll never sell her. It's the best car I've ever had."
