Stovebolters, I've decided the journal would be fun by sharing my story to bring the '52 Burb back. Photos are my eldest son John as we brought the '52 Burb back to MD from VA after the majority of metal work & exterior paint was done. Enjoy! V/r, Nick

Stovebolters, Original owner lived above the boarder line of NJ/NY operating a cabinet/furniture business last on the road NYState registration 1967. Fellow was WWII soldier who passed away late 2010. He had no kids & estate liquidated. I , as second owner, bought it late 2011 via the NYS registration signed by original before he passed. It sat 44 years neglected. So here we are 10 years already & just about putting it all together. Pic is of shop in VA that did all the metalwork & paint. Enjoy & thanks for all the positive comments from those that continue to chim in! V/r, Nick

Sir, Original color was green & this is pic of it undergoing frame off metal replacement at firewall, kick panels, rear wheel fender wells, and underneath barn doors. Yes, I'm darn lucky to have found it with all its worts to include dented passenger side roof. The old WWII soldier kept it for a reason & I'm just bringing it back to gift it to my middle kid, whom proudly serves LCpl aviation airframer USMC deployed Japan. Thanks Ken for kind words. V/r, Nick
