JP created the topic: 1948 Buick Streamliner by Norman E. Timbs
When we first covered the 1948 Buick Streamliner by Norman E. Timbs, the article wrote itself. “Curves like these inspire poetry”, we said, and the fact remains true. This sixty-year-old stunner is in prime condition today, having been carefully maintained and restored to the vision of designer Norman Timbs. Timbs was an engineer who worked on performance and racing vehicles back in the 40s, but he set out to craft his own personal car on a Buick frame. With only $10,000 in costs, Timbs crafted a timeless automobile that looks like nothing else on the road– today, yesterday and throughout automotive history.
