Last Edited: June 10, 2005, 7:44 pm

this is donna's post  to old car forums-thought maybe one of yall might have seen it-she is soooo sad

my 1951 Buick Special was stolen out of my garage the night of sat night june4th or early morning sun the june5th --it had to be taken on a big trunk was not running at the time-the car is green with a white top --it was taken from centre,ala -on the corner of cedarbluff rd and 68 by-pass--hope someone has seen it --please be on the look out for it -if you see it please let me know-shutterbug818@bellsouth.net
this car was left to me by my father-he bought it brand new-i have all the paper work on it and every tag it ever had-
i feel like they stolen my baby-and the last thing i had of my daddy
i'm just sick-hope someone can help-i've got the police on it but i need more eyes out there looking --gotta get her back home
more than likely it's probably not in ala anymore
thanks for any help you can give me

i live in louisiana now and was getting ready to bring her down -thought she was safe -guess i was wrong

donna here again-maybe i should have added
1951 Buick is a straight 8-2 door -straight shift -3 on the column

going to try to give all more info to help if you run across the Buick
serial number 16390890
motor number 66087344
has a 14 year old tag on it that says antique or vintage
radio is in tact but doesn't work
brass radiator
brass carb
4 wheels plus spare has 2 yellow pin stripes on them
blue sparkplug cover was in trunk-it has the firing order on it
breather was in trunk
gas tank has black rubber coating on it
back window has a shriner sticker on it
all chrome needed rechromed
back bumper-daddy paid extra for -was a sports bumper doesn't go straight across
has like a shelf on it
left hand hood release was broken
original upholstery-with old seat covers that daddy bought in the 60's lil ragged
has 2 inline gas filters that were not original to the car-one right before the carb the other under the car on passenger side
inside of the drivers door is YOUNG OIL COMPANY stickers from the 60's
glove department has a warp to it -you have to use a screw driver to help open it-there are a few scratches there
on back bumper greenish yellow spot where a sticker had been removed
on carb a small socket used[i think a number 10] as a connection to the automatic choke
and as i said before dark green body and white top
thanks again for your help
i was looking forward to restoring her --she deserved it
also my uncle said if you ever looked you'd fine a number 10 shoe imprint on the passenger side--it was his trying to use the break when daddy should have lol-so many memories -- i was born 1957 so that buick has always been in my life --hope someone can bring her home to me
