"I LOVE MY CAR BECAUSE ... she's my dream come true. I first saw a 1941 Buick Special when I was 11 years old. I couldn't have one then, of course. But I still fell in love with the Special's beautiful looks and swore someday I would have one of my own. ... I'm 83 now, and my Special girl and I have been together for 21 years. It was my dream car then ... and still is."
