  1. I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    Bottom shot would be just about period correct if not for that darn GMC in the background.
  2. 56 buick special 4dr sedan, $7500

    The automatic is still in the car...all be it laying on the cross member for the lower control arms, disjointed and well...not really in the car ready to receive the block.

    Wipers are working great! Yes, they do slow under acceleration. That is normal. Do the same when driving up a hill. Vacuum simply dies. But, the fuel/vacuum pump keeps them going.

    You have come a long way on this wagon. She is going to be beautiful. Nice work!

    I love the poverty cap and black wall look.
  8. So does mine. Still in the normal range though. Never overheated on me. I would not sweat it.

    My daughter at the local cruise in.
  10. 79 Regal limited, not mine

    3.8 is a very good engine from my experiences with this engine in a 78 and 83 Regal.
  11. 1963 Buick Special "Pinhead"

    It is a bit high at idle. Does you manual have specs on oil pressure?

    50 psi is plenty.

    Mine taps at start up. Only in one spot. Doubt it is lifters in mine. Replaced all. Push rods are fine. Maybe piston slap. Once warm the tap is gone. Somewhere in the engine the metal is expanding from the heat. Tap goes away. Been doing that since I got it. Never proved to be a problem. I let it go.

    They will always find their happy spot with a burp of antifreeze after filling.
  15. 1955 Buick and 1955 Chev. 2-door hardtops

    Both are not similar at all. Do not share parts that I'm aware of. Maybe the headlight switch as a guess? Both, however, have good parts support as well as forum support by members just like us!
  16. 79 Regal limited, not mine

    My first car was a 78 Buick Regal 2 door coupe. White paint and white vinyl top. White interior with red dash/carpet. Buick rally wheels. For a kid at 17 it was the tops. Looked sharp and different than all the other cars in the school parking lot. It was one of the best vehicles I owned.

    Nice 79!
  18. Help cranks but won't start

    Plugs maybe wet with gas. Pull one or two and check.

    Probably was taken from a slide picture. Was upside down.
