1989 Reatta Parts
An old friend of mine (72 and two Reatta's)sold me one of his Reatta's today, a red/tan 89. It has 181,000 miles on it, but the engine was replaced 11K miles ago at a Buick delearship (cost him over $4600). The drivers fender has been dinged and it looks like a car with 181,000...but, all of the interior components work, shifts great. He has receipts for the work done on the car and it has lot's of new small parts, but it is still a car with 181,000 miles on it. It seems that spending the money to restore this unit would just not be worth the effort considering the mileage? I'm working on restoring my 1990 Reatta and could use the money from parting out the 89 on the 1990 unit...and hopefully have a 1990 Reatta that would reflect the extra $$$$'s being spent. I like saving Buicks of any kind, so, do I sacrifice one to get a better result on a candidate already being restored? If I could get some opinions from the group on which direction to go in it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a response for the list members as well...don't want to take up band width with something a number of people would have no interest in...Thank you...Gordon
