Finished cleaning up the engine compartment,Replaced all plastic covered wires with woven. Tucked modern coil and gen. cutout under dash (where they were originally) ,sourced a new fan belt, had the missing oil can bracket made,and installed correct valve and side cover fasteners.I have the carb preheater valve but don't plan on installing it at this point. Purists will also point out that the engine color is not quite correct.I expect that perhaps when the car was restored over 40 years ago that this is all that was available.

Don't let purists sway you.
Leaving the preheater disconnected is a good idea if you plan on running it instead of looking at it.......

It was time today to let the '25 stretch it's legs a bit. Took it for a run and it never missed a beat. My wife had her first ride in it. Seemed impressed.Should be a good tour season.

Great to see another Buick 6 hit the highway. Nice job on the cowl /signal lamps. Yes. In the modern age you NEED signal lights. I have quite a few miles behind one of those engines: first in Dads 27 sedan, then 25 touring, and B-in laws 27- 7 passenger touring

The old girl became a grocery getter today. Ten miles round trip and ran perfectly.I know that's not far but it's likely the farthest it's been driven in over 30 years. My confidence is building !

My wife and I trailered the '25 to a small town car show sponsored by the local Lions club. There were about 125 cars there,mostly rods,restomods,and performance cars,with only a few pre WW2 originals.The '25 received a lot of attention,so much so that when trophies were given out,it won "Fans Favorite".Seems what fans really like to see is an unmolested original car.Maybe there's hope for this hobby yet.

The local pioneer village held their agricultural fair this weekend and we took the '25 Buick.It's a great place for a period photo op. The car was originally owned by a doctor,there is a doctor's house preserved there,and "the doctor" was in ! The restored general store and church are also photogenic. A 1929 Hupmobile roadster and a 1918 Dodge also shared the spotlight.
