World's Most Rust-Tacular Buick Gets Hacked Out Of Bush, Mated To Corvette

Illustration for article titled Worlds Most Rust-Tacular Buick Gets Hacked Out Of Bush, Mated To Corvette

Hack some rusty cool car out of an overgrown junkyard, then affix all the cool body stuff to a somewhat usable frame. It’s a dream I’ve always wanted to follow and it’s exactly what Roadkill did with what might be the world’s worst Buick and an also-horrible ‘70s Corvette.


They pulled a ‘56 Buick Special, maybe the prettiest Buick that nobody seems to care about, out of a thorn bush in some Tennessee junkyard and mounted it on a two-foot-stretched frame of a ‘73 Corvette they chopped up in the same spot.

The project isn’t done yet, and it looks like it’s going to be a totally awful rusty turd. But it’s going to look badass and it’s going to run. That counts as rescuing these otherwise-doomed vehicles, and that’s good in my book.

The worst part about it was how the engine on the corvette chassis is set much farther back compared to the original chassis the Buick has.

The C3 was practically a front-mid engine car.

It's gonna make sitting in the front seat... Ummm... Interesting
