  1. Better plug up the ventilation holes just in case it rains......
  2. I like the last line of your comment Rusty, it gave me a real chuckle.
  3. A agree with Dr Watson. 49-50 Nash. This one is the ventilated model.
  4. Nowadays everybody else has DEEP pockets to pay. So sue their sox off of them to teach them a lesson.
  5. These remind me of the front seats in a '37 Chevy 2 dr sedan that I had back in the 60's.
  6. I'm with Curti on this. I've owned several 40's Chevy's and it looks to be 40 through 48 trunk lid. That said it could also be from another GM division of the same era.
  7. Okay Lamar this would be your chance for a quick sale of the needed items and possibly a road trip. It's only short haul delivery from Geo-ga. LOL
  8. This girl is perfect the way she stands !!! Not many(any?) on any show field(s) for sure. I'd save my money by driving /showing her the way she is. I really love Buicks especially green ones.
  9. 35BuickakaBelle-- I own a '34 Buick series 40,model 41 sedan with trunk. Relative to the time it was produced the frame numbers, engine numbers and body numbers are as close as can be during the assembly of my car(aka matching numbers) This was verified by the former Buick numbers guru before his passing. I think it was '35 when GM started to actually record what engine number went to what frame number and body number. Write down your engine number and frame number if they are still on the car and post them on the pre-war Buick forum and I'm sure one of the numbers guys will get you an answer. Good Luck !
  10. Just a couple of coppers worth here. Make sure to put backing in place for mounting the fixtures to before insulation and drywall go up. Hollow wall anchors don't really work well. At least a two, preferably a three coat taping mud job on the drywall A good white primer and paint job will go along way to seal fumes from the rest of the house as well as have great reflective value. These are things that I've learned over the years that make a good,complete, long lasting job.
  11. Force is NOT your friend when it comes to pilot bearings or bushings. Ask me how I know this. I've more than one story on this and a couple of them star Chevrolet 6's. Take your time the car and your enjoyment of it will thank you.
  12. A friend of mine bought one of these new in '67 his was green. It had a small V-8 in it I can't remember the size of just now. He converted it to propane fuel and it ran it for a couple of decades that way. He turned the truck over to his elder son who promptly converted it to a 4x4 diesel and as far as I know it is still running. A strong solidly built pick up.
  13. Victorialynn2 reminded me of bringing the '34 Buick that my younger son and I had just bought to his house. We paid for the car and loaded it on to our trailer. My son was in the chase car just in case anything bad happened. About a mile down the highway he called me and said it was snowing on him. I quick looked in the mirrors on my truck to see the top insert on the Buick had come loose and the liner was blowing apart in the wind. I pulled over and he and I finished removing the top insert as people drove past shaking their heads. Fortunately none of them were Highway Patrol Officers. Age doesn't always make us smarter and sometimes experience doesn't either.
  14. If memory serves that was the exact hood ornament on the last '48 Chevy coupe that I owned. A "Style-master"(?) I believe.
  15. I agree with Marty ! To the very few (as yet) unanswered what is it's questions, I am sure that sooner or later that they will be answered as well. Not only does the amount of knowledge displayed in these forums amaze me but more so the depth of that knowledge. Collectively there is nothing you people can't shed some light on if not answer 100%. Here's to you guys, my hat's off in acknowledgement of your great work.
