Jerry Lial, Sr. sits in the back of his 1941 Buick.  He got the car in 1994. "It took about a year to decide what I wanted to do with it.  And then a little money here, a little money there."  The rear seat is original, but the front seats are from a Cadillac. It's got a 350 Chevy engine, and Camaro 4-speed transmission.  "I wanted it to be MY car," he said.
