Once Warren brought the "Buddha Buggy" back to Hines, the exterior was restored and painted and the car shown at the Grand National Roadster Show, still on the original Buick wires and still with the remarkable Martinez interior, which came up surprisingly well after a good clean and a little touch up with paint. This is next on the restoration list, but I wanted to photograph the car with its original interior in place. While it can doubtless be recreated perfectly, it's such a well-preserved piece of history that it seems a shame to me to have it redone. Though these pictures were shot last year, the car remains today just as you see it here, still with the original interior. Of course it's not my car, but I for one hope it stays that way!
