    Ok.... recently heard this guy will take $500. Carb is missing, starter is in the trunk. With a title, come on guys. It's just not in my 2018 budget. I'll provide the truck and trailer, just to not see it scrapped.

    39 buick century, not mine

    @MCHinson this one's down your way.... https://wilmington.craigslist.org/cto/d/1939-buick-century-series-60/6635603652.html ad text: Up for sale is a 1939 Buick Century (Series 60). This car has been in our family for almost 40 years, most of which was in conditioned storage. Car still has original interior (some moth holes in the seats and headliner). Body has minor scraps but no major dings or deep scratches. Driver side rear side window does have a crack in lower right corner but still operates (see pic) and the rear drivers side tire is leaking air from around the valve stem. Car was re-sprayed and some body work was done before the car was purchased back in 1980. Trunk has misc. parts that have been collected through the years and comes with a custom car cover made to fit. This is a great car, lots of fun to drive and gets many looks going down the road. The car does run/drive, however it has been sitting for a couple years and thus needs a good tune-up (I recently put new plugs and battery in the car).This is not a show quality car, but one that you can get out, cruise on the weekends and enjoy driving!

    85 regal turbo not mine

    https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/cto/d/1985-buick-regal-type-gn-38l/6639901768.html Ad text: unfortunately I must part with my 1985 Buick Regal T-Type. I've owned this car for about 4 years, but was friends and formerly roommates with the previous owner. Since it has been in my possession, it's spent most of it's time in our attached garage. It was a project for my son and I to work on. It has been driven on the road by me probably less than 10 times, before I let the inspection lag and put it into "project mode storage."The car does run, and pretty strong. I am attaching pictures but have video of the car running as well. Here's what I know from prior to my purchase:The heads were ported and polished by a machine shop, I do not have receipts.A custom 3" straight exhaust was run beyond the down-pipe.KYB Shocks installed, new bushings in front (there is some sag in passenger rear, not sure why).EGR Deleted (sealed with a plate)New Fuel and Brake lines where neededOriginal fan was removed and an Electric mount and fan was installed. It could use a better temp controller (it's just a dial thingy)The goods (what I did to it):New Gas TankNew Walbro 255lph pump (a direct fused wire had been run from the alternator by previous owner)Replaced fuel rail with clean used stockNew 42lb. injectorsAdjustable Fuel RegulatorNew (used) stock MAF (I have a few)Turbo Tweak Chip, 93/94 Octane, 10-12lbs boost, 42# injectorOil, filter, and coolant changed, 20w50 partial syntheticNew PlugsNew Starter (Napa)New Alternator (Napa)New Battery (AutoZone Gold)New Engine coolant Temp Sensor (this was causing the car to bog on WOT, Fixed the issue)Other odds and ends to get it running.The bads:-The odometer cable either snapped or just pulled loose. I have the dash console out so I am not sure which it is as I haven't reinstalled it-Odometer reading isn't accurate and title states EXEMPT. I believe Milage is 85K or more.-The alternator charging circuit seems flakey. Sometimes I get not charge at the posts. If you know these cars, you know that the dash VOLT bulb can be a culprit. I haven't traced this down yet, hence why the dash was removed. I believe it is the alternator field activation problem (Casper's has a fix for 86/87 but I am not sure if it will work on this because of harness length and pinouts)It might need a tire. One of them felt like the belt was bubbled, probably from sitting low for a while. I haven't driven it on the road in a while so I can't tell.-added gauge cluster is kinda wack (but oil pressure and Tach works, Needs new boost gauge)-Needs bumper fillers, header panel, headliner, carpeting maybe? Definitely needs some body work and paint. Pictures show all.-Engine compartment-- I did not work on beauty here, as it wasn't quite there yet. So the hose routing, etc looks, well, sloppy. Previous owner was not known for aesthetics! Could use some nice spark plug wires.I hate hate hate that I have to sell this car. I love it, I love how it rides, runs and sounds. This was to be my project as I got old and mid-life crisis focused. But alas, I have to move must liquidate it fast.I have some 87 ignition modules, a beefier CAM (not sure on the numbers, but can check) and several other odds and ends for it. It all goes with. Original Donut and jack in the trunk.$2500 or BEST OFFER. Serious buyers only -- Please don't waste either of our time. I'll only sell to someone who understands these cars.

  11. Beautiful weather today; low 80s and low humidity! Looked up the Nort Durham County Scenic byway, packed a sandwhich, and hit the road. 48 miles round trip. Found this 1940s hunting lodge that's now a park. Cool place, surprised to be the only one there!

    Car Transport Needed - AL to NC - Completed

    I usually haul my own, but one time I had a car hauled GA to NC and used K&D Bates out of Bishop, GA. I would have posted sooner, but I just found their card. They were very reasonable. 706- 769- 5525 doylebates@bellsouth.net

    Front Brake Concerns / This Car is Baffling!

    I tell you, if I were new to old Buicks this I'd be selling this one after some of this interaction. Why don't we focus on helping the owner with what he can do to make the car better instead of just picking apart the faults? Sure it's a rough situation, but he's already got the car, let's be constructive.

    Front Brake Concerns / This Car is Baffling!

    Jee Bob. It's got a 55 body on it. 😜 Yes if you buy the front disc conversion and the correct proportioning valve, you'd be on your way.

    Front Brake Concerns / This Car is Baffling!

    Definitely not original rear, and your driveshaft is open (not inside a tube). Front end looks stock from that angle.
