  1. Rainman Buick on Chasing Classic Cars

    Just my opinion, but the grey looks a lot better than body color. Body color is too much. For instance, Rainman Body color is yellow. Yellow for a dash???? Or how about that mint green color they had. I would not have been happy to get a Riviera or Convertible in body color no matter what. Can you imagine a black convertible? Again, I don't understand and I wonder if it was a Roadmaster only deal or Super / Roadmaster ? Your grey and the one in my Sedanette just looks right, conservative and a good match to the chrome and brightness of the instruments. Thanks for posting.
  2. 1930 Marquette Phaeton phoenix AZ craigslist

    Well Bernie, the price has dropped into what I believed it should be, although I claim no expertise. The main point again is that there are so few people doing restorations, and that compares to the driver class 2 and 4 door sedans from 1922ish to 1942 for $7500 to $15,000. There have been at least 10 Buick closed cars in the past 6 months on the AACA forum in this price range that run and drive and can take the grandkids to the ice cream shop NOW. Don't get me wrong I would love to have a run at restoring this Marquette but I need to save for retirement.

    It makes about a $1000 difference that it is one of the 40's iconic body styles, the 2 door Sedanette.

    Unfortunately, the car I saw was a 1963 LeSabre. Sorry
  12. The Rainman Show for Chasing Classic Cars - which 1st aired on July 5, 2016, was reaired this past Thursday on Velocity. I turn my premium package off after the NCAA Basketball tournament so I did not catch it the 1st time. It was a pleasure to see the car and understand the recent history plus some great shots of it in operation. I am always thrown off by the body color paint dashes on some 1949 Buicks - I believe only the convertibles and Rivieras had the body painted dashes. My 1949 Roadmaster Sedanette was painted a dark grey. In my opinion, the body color paint on the dashes is not a good look. It looks custom to me and I wonder if the trend toward over restoration gloss on the dash is more the issue. Anyway, I hope you all picked up the show on DVR. I know the CCC are shown in a continuous loop for quite awhile, hence the pick up of an 18 month old show.
  13. Rare 1955 Travelall International

    Good luck finding one for $1500. This one is very solid judging from the photos and at least for the Chevy and GMC Suburbans from the 30’s to about 1956, they are in high demand and this draw high asking prices and selling prices. You would need to provide some anecdotal evidence of your comment. When was the last time you saw one for sale or restored?
  14. 1964 Buick Cornering light

    There are 2 in a junk yard car close to me but it sounds like you want NOS. These were OK, good driver quality if I remember. I think I took photos of them or at least one side and can send them when I get home.

    No I won’t gag on that price. It is market correct. Beautiful car.
