1938 Buick Convertible owned and restyled by Timo Hersti of Hersti AutoShop in Tuusula, Finland. Timo bought the Buick in 2008, and he started the project by tearing the car down and replacing rusted panels. After the build had started, Timo had Janne Kutja draw a concept illustration of the car, following Timo's instructions.
