1954 Buick owned and restyled by Richie Daus of New York City, New York. Richie lived on Hillside Avenue, off Sutphin Blvd in Jamaica, Queens when he was working on the car. "Garages for those apartments were in the middle of the block, in a big courtyard," Ken Bausert, an old buddy of Richie, told Sondre Kvipt of Kustomrama in 2017. "Richie worked on his car there." Ken stopped by Richie to check out the build and take some photos in 1962, at the time Richie was in the progress of installing 1956 Chrysler taillights on the Buick. "Unfortunately, the car got smashed up by a “bad” taxi driver in his cab."[1]
