    Alexander's '67 Buick!

    Tom is continuing his work on restoring Alexander's '67 Buick LeSabre! Here is what he had to say regarding where he was back in August!

    "I will give you a quick update on Alexander's LeSabre. Here's some shots a few minutes before the body was dropped on the frame back in August. Tom."

    Here are 3 pix he sent me! It is coming along!

      It has been a couple of years since I last heard from Tom Cangialosi regarding the work being done on restoring Alexander Sosiak's 1967 Buick LaSabre! Here is what he had to say, and a picture and yessss! a video of it actually running again! Alexander's Buick lives again! There is still work to be done, and if you would like to contribute to the effort of bring Alexander's Buick back to full operation, I am sure Tom would certainly appreciate it! Here is his email address: Tom Cangialosi <tcangialosi1@aol.com>. Here is what he had to say.

      "Just wanted to update you on the resto of Alexander's LeSabre. May not look like much, but almost every nut, bolt and component on the drive train, frame, and brakes has been removed, checked, cleaned, rebuilt or upgraded with originality in mind. Rusty panels have been replaced and body work will start this spring when money allows. My 14 year old son and I have a blast working on it. Alexander would have been impressed! Started the engine after rebuild and moving under it's own power first time since 1996. I can forward a shot video of it for those who remember him. Warm Regards, Tom".

      Here is that picture and the short video clip of her running under her own power again... A little "nekked" but alive again! Click on the Attached Files .mp4 link and go full screen for a better view. It sounds great!

        I was so pleased to see that Tom is still continuing work on Alexanders Buick.. I have been wondering if it was still in progress. I often think of Alexander and how none of this website would exist without him..... all my interactions with him are fondly remembered he was truly a wonderful person. thanks for sharing this with us Ray.

          Ray thanks for sharing the video of Tom steering Alexander's LaSabre out of the garage. I like the fact that Tom AND his son are still working together on this project, as they will most certainly be very proud of the finished restoration. Alexander is smiling for sure

            Very gratifying that you all still remember Alexander. He was a great friend and a real hoot to hang out with. Our many trips to Carlisle are some of my funniest memories of him. My son Aaron and I have been doing our best to move things along as the "Buick" has been a part of his life since he was 4 years old. He has natural mechanical ability and works as my righthand on all of my projects. It is one of my true pleasures. Our only constraint is lack of funds, something that we work around as best we can. I'm afraid I've had a bad influence on him though. At 15 years old, his goal is to attend McPherson College and major in Automotive Restoration! He's a Boy Scout and currently working toward becoming an Eagle Scout with support for my wife, Julie too.

            If anyone were to contribute to this restoration, every cent would go directly into the work and furthering Aaron's hands-on education.

            Many thanks for all the kind words and we will keep you updated.

            Tom
