Last month, I tagged onto a thread that was started by KIWI56R. Responding to his anguish at the current cost of '57 Buick ball joints, I related my own long-ago purchase of an NOS set of these. They were for my Roadmaster Riviera sedan that's been sporadically "under restoration" for close to forty years now.
I'm new to this forum technology and it took me until now to figure out how to return to that thread. When I finally linked back in tonight, I was really touched at how many people have replied to my request for encouragement to get back out to the garage and enjoy this magnificent hobby again. They urged me to start a new thread on my long experience with this car (purchased February, 1973), so here goes.
It's been so long since I've had this old thing out in the daylight, I don't even have any digital photos of it to post here. I promise, that's on tomorrow's To-Do list. Thank you all for this very warm AACA welcome - I'm feeling a twinge of motivation already. ~Rob
