  1. Lots of brew pubs, microbreweries, tap rooms, etc. around. It is Colorado after all. Old Loveland pass is a nice drive, but I'm more used to doing it in a TR-3 rather than a 50's Buick. Disc brake probably make a big difference. For those into 'train spotting' type actives, you can sit at the top of the pass with a hazardous materials book and look up all the numbers on the sides of the semis, since hazmat is not allowed through the tunnels on I-70! I am going to try and make the Nationals if my employment situation allows, but I'll be day tripping it. The 50 miles each way is cheaper on gas than a hotel room. Scott
  2. Oil Filter advice needed

    Rockauto lists the CH106pl for 11.59 each. Their application is shown as mid-50's GM, I've gotten these for my 54 Buicks and 58 Cadillacs.. They also show the ACDELCO PF122 for 6.24, and the WIX 51121 for 8.29. Not sure why I got the Fram when the Delco was available. Looks like I need to add some to my next order. Scott
  3. ? for the 61-63 Skylark Aficionados

    John, You are correct. 63 only. Perhaps coupe or Skylark only. If my pictures were cooperating I would upload a picture of them on my 63 Skylark coupe. Scott
  4. Took the Roadmaster out to the last big cars and coffee of the season. Temps in the 70s today and tomorrow, first snow storm of the season on Monday. Had the Eldorado out too, just to enjoy the weather. Scott
  5. Wanted: 1962 Buick Special Convertible

    Not sure how I missed this earlier, but I have a few of these. One is a 62 Special Deluxe V8 4sp. with buckets and power top. The engine has been rebuilt and the seats redone with correct material from SMS, however it has one rust spot on the passenger front floor and both rear quarters are bad. Here is a link to the pictures I've used on Craigslist. https://1drv.ms/f/s!AilHsu_gDfzRtSAyR5Etkbm-XQS4 The second is a 62 Special, V6, bench seat, manual top car. I really think this is the one the dealer used to get people to come in by advertising a super cheap car. My father-in-law bought this as a parts car, but for a while I thought it was a better car than that. I have a 63 V6 and automatic to go with it. The engine ran before I pulled it, but it would need a rebuild to be sure of it. The seats got left outside for a while so the frames are pretty rusty. https://1drv.ms/f/s!AilHsu_gDfzRtymKlN6fd_xjI1AU I am asking $3500 for both these cars, build one or build both. Make me an offer I can't refuse! : ) The third one is a V8 bench seat 3spd with a rebuilt motor. The car is currently wrapped in a tarp outside, so I don’t have any pictures of it. Not sure if it is a Special or a Special Deluxe. I think the body is in pretty good shape. It is missing the transmission. It is in my wife’s name, and I’ll have to see what she want’s for it if you are interested. All of these cars are located just north of Colorado Springs, CO and have clear Colorado titles. Scott
  6. 1963 Buick Special "Pinhead"

    My 63 Skylark has this same engine. Anti-seize on the plugs is a must. The engine was used by Rover until Ford bought them. It was also the original engine in the TR-8. I have a couple of spares around and always make sure they are accounted for when the Triumph club leaves after a get together. I also have a few extra 4 barrel intakes, but the hot setup would be to find the FI off a Range Rover, my understanding is that is basically bolt on. Scott
  7. I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    They do look good on a 54 if you are willing to ignore the not quite correct aspect of it.

  9. 1958 Limited

    Mostly! I could really use that driver's front side wheel opening molding! Scott
  10. WTB '49 Hudson hubcap

    We have one on hand from my father-in-laws old collection. Seems to be in really nice shape. Measures 14" across. If you are interested, how does $25 + shipping sound? Let me know if you want more pics or have any questions. Thanks Scott
  11. Hey, MR EARL, check this out

    Mr. Earl said: "if I was offered either a 54 Roadmaster or a 54 Skylark, I'd first ask if there was a 53 Skylark available" Funny, I'd ask the same question! Then I'd ask if I could have the estimated sale price to restore my 54-76C... Scott
  12. W T B 1970-71 Chevelle dashboard

    I don't have one to sell, but a few questions will come up; SS (round gauge) or sweep speedo style? SS style are re-popped. 70-72 are the same, I have a 71 in my 70 Malibu with a/c, but if you want to be correct the 70 gauges have green printing, 71-72 are white. What do you mean by complete? The main dash is the same for a/c, the vents on the end are different, but swap into the same hole. The standard end vents are re-popped. There are two screw on 'crotch cooler' vents, and a top center vent that replaces the blanking plate for the a/c cars. hope that helps and good luck in your search Scott
  13. Favorite Pictures of My Post War Buick

    Hey JohnD, I took a similar pic this last weekend! Not quite a Smart Car though!
  14. Steve, I just got what looks to be the same sending unit and had the same issue. Since I didn't want to look around for another sending unit and it is not visible, I created the necessary clearance with the gentle application of a ball peen hammer to the tank. Scott
  15. Buick Wholesale Parts Guides '51- '58

    Mr. Earl, If the sale doesn't go through on the '58 manual, I would like it. Also, on your other parts ad, I could use a full size air filter housing with the 'silencer' for the 54 Roady, along with the bracket(s). Also, a road draft tube for Laura's 54 Super. Thanks Scott
