  1. Certainly the rolling speedo in the 66-67 is cool, however, we must give it up to the designers of the Toronado cluster. They really framed it with style:

    Control Arm Bushing set '64

    Hehe, yeah; I don't want my a$$ to hurt more than needed. Grandfather drove his '64 till he died at 91 years old, and it shows on the car. We had to replace both front fenders... Black with red interior. It should be nice and sinister when done. Thanks again! Gabriel

    Control Arm Bushing set '64

    Or perhaps disparaging remarks are not appropriate for this forum? Yeah, originally I attempted to reply immediately, Yet spent many hours trying to figure out how to upload photos of the frame off restoration. I essentially did not get back to it faster, because like most people here, I am sure, I have been insanely busy. I think I just recently found a way to downsize and upload pictures, but am still working on it. Sorry for the delay in response. So, for the record: I am not MIA nor am I warming up for the choir and really don't get why the comments were made... Anyway, I absolutely appreciate the information and effort given and find the intel invaluable; Thank you. I would like to fabricate my own, because the price point that Rare Parts is selling at seems draconian, and it is almost unbelievable that CARS would sell the wrong size with such a high price; I will have to see if I have the proper resources at my disposal. I will attempt to attach pictures that are not too lage of file, but can also be seen with the naked eye.
  5. I am aware that much has been discussed on this topic in the past, yet has anyone installed this set of Control arm bushing set from CARS, inc. (Old Buick Parts). http://www.oldbuickparts.com/catalog/1963-up-riviera-group-rear-axle-control-arm-bushing-1963-65-riviera-set-p-7516.html Someone mentioned that they are not the proper size, yet it mentioned on the part that "these are the correct length." I was unsure if they have changed them to fit properly as I need some for a frame off restoration on a '64 Riviera. Or should I go with the Rare Parts: http://shop.rareparts.com/smtp/shopdisplaycategories.asp?iyear=1964&imake=0006|BUICK&imodel=0123|RIVIERA&iproduct=0048|SHOCKS%20AND%20STRUTS Thank you for any insights.
  6. So would you still go with the 5/16th? Would it have been better to use square butyl tape and not the round? I am about to do this and purchased square 3/8" butyl tape, yet may return for the 5/16" Thanks
  7. I am interested in the decanter. Do you take the Paypal? Thanks, Gabriel

    Please introduce yourself...

    Hey there and Happy Holidays, I live in the Redwoods of Northern California and know that the most elegant of all vehicles ever made (in my not so humble opinion) were the Buick Rivieras. My personal favorite being years '65 and '66 (NAILHEAD!). Although I can sometimes be see driving a 1967 Riviera (triple green trim), this is just an illusion, I am really riding a fire breathing DRAGON! I am now seeking my Legend vehicle that will be passed down through the family and I have chosen 1966 Riviera, so if anyone has leads on a very nice quality '66, please send them my way. My ideal car is a shadow turqious '66 GS with aqua interior & center console & of course cornering lights (wood steering wheel anyone?!). By the way, anyone got a nice set of Buick Rally wheels (code 802 or 853) or cornering lights they are looking to sell? Anyway, thought I would introduce myself to this community. HI!
