Journey of a Masterpiece: X-60, the Winning Buick at Mother's Battle of the Builders

Awe-Inspiring Automotive Marvel Takes Inspiration from B-52 Stratofortress

Behold the magnificence of the "X-60," an automotive spectacle that skillfully incorporates the captivating essence of the legendary Boeing B-52 Stratofortress.

Over the course of nine years, Andy Leach from Cal Auto Creations poured heart and soul into transforming the Buick Invicta into a work of art. In redefining the possibilities for this classic Buick model, Andy expertly shortened the car's front end by two inches, amplifying its visual allure.

Furthermore, the hood was elongated, bestowing a harmonious unity to its aesthetic. While the front facade may appear familiar, keen eyes will notice an absence of the original "cheek guards," which have been replaced by a sleek, contoured bumper that seamlessly melds with the car's front edges.

The rear boasts a splendidly handcrafted one-piece bumper, accentuated by tasteful brass trims, while the iconic Buick VentiPorts have been removed from the front quarter panels. The result of these carefully executed modifications is a dynamic appearance that conjures the image of a majestic descent. It is worth noting that the roof remains intact, unaffected by any alteration, preserving its original form.

Similarly, the chrome trim is preserved, although it adorns smaller areas of the car compared to its predecessor. This distinctive touch draws parallels to modern Buick models such as the Enclave or the technologically advanced Encore GX, which proudly showcase the brand's cherished chromed styling. Enhancing its allure are the 19-inch wheels, a captivating feature that defies convention with its absence of traditional whitewall tires.

Instead, it embraces low-profile Pirellis, adeptly accommodating a contemporary braking system while perfectly complementing the car's high- performance characteristics lurking beneath the hood. At the heart of the X-60 lies the formidable 401 Nailhead engine, a true testament to automotive engineering excellence.

Embellished with a crank-driven supercharger, this powerhouse has the potential to unleash up to 600 horsepower, though the immaculate build suggests its intention as a showpiece rather than a regular at the local drag strip.

The cabin, lavishly reupholstered, exudes both comfort and style, further affirming its status as a show-stopping marvel. Prepare to embark on an unforgettable automotive experience as Andy's custom-built Invicta takes center stage in the upcoming SEMA: Battle of the Builders TV special, slated to captivate viewers in January 2024 on the illustrious History Channel.
