Just Delightful: Bob Pelikan’s 1931 Buick (with a shiny Pelican hood ornament)


Coastsider Bob Pelikan discovered the long-neglected 1931 Buick, a gem of a car, sleeping in a barn behind Duarte’s Tavern in Pescadero. The old two-seater had belonged to a San Jose family. Since Bob was retired, with more than ever to do (“Retiring, that’s when I got busy,” he told me today), he went to work restoring the Buick to its classic beauty.
