  1. I.D. this bumper guard--1941?

    Neil ... mine does look just like yours. I have the two center bumper guards around the license plates as you do. I just took the photo of one of them from the side. I like those fog lights you have. Are they original to the car? Details?
  2. I.D. this bumper guard--1941?

    I have attached photos of my installed bumper guards. I have a 1941 Roadmaster sedan (model 71). Front Bumper: Center guard about 13" long and 4" wide at point where it crosses top of bumper Front Bumper: End guard about 11-1/2" long and 3" wide at point where it crosses top of bumper Rear Bumper: Guards about 11-3/4" long and 4" wide at point where it crosses top of bumper. Notice the deep curve/notch to conform to the bumper shape. does yours have this? I believe mine to be original and correct to this car.

    Thanks, Neil! It's feedback like yours and others on this site that encourages me to write about the Buick.
  4. Oil Filter advice needed

    I get my filters at NAPA . The number is the NAPA Gold 1001. Their catalog part number is FIL 1001. They are presently going for $14.49 if ordered online for store delivery. Check the dimensions to be sure. They come with two gaskets, one of which fits just fine. I usually order 2 or 3 at a time and stock up. Click on the blue link to see the item at NAPA.
  5. 2016 Hershey Fall Meet - nearly 400 photos

    Hershey 2017 was great too and the weather was even better. I posted over 250 images (fewer than last year) on our AACA Region site. We all had a great time.

    avgwarhawk -Thanks for the encouragement, it's always appreciated here. They did have a good time indeed! AC Furman - Congratulations to you and your bride! I'm sure the '55 made the day that much better. It's been 41 years for my wife and I. Enjoy every minute because the years go by in a wink. (recently installed front seat belts ; now my wife is less reluctant to ride with me ; that's her in the photo below.)
  7. (2016-09-24) Success

    Kaftan .... That is a great series of photographs documenting the restoration of your car. Congratulations! I looked at every photo and got a big kick out of it. Nice work.
  8. Buicks and Weddings

    Kaftan ... Thanks for complement. The car makes me happy (most of the time). The photo was done by the wedding photographer, Matt, who went to school years ago with my children. Matt is very good. He even rode shotgun in the Buick so he wouldn't miss a thing.
  9. Buicks and Weddings

    My son and his fiancée made a very special request of me back in May of 2017. They asked me to chauffeur them in my '41 Buick Roadmaster sedan on their wedding day. I was thrilled to be given this opportunity. I was also quite anxious. My car is no beauty and it is on a constant repair and improvement schedule. A lot had to be done before the wedding date. I have chronicled the event on my WordPress blog and you are welcome to read the entire story. Just click the blue link to get there. I hope some folks enjoy the story and are encouraged to post their own story here on the AACA forum. Thanks! (Note: Photograph courtesy of Matt Ferrara Photography)
  10. The Buick Goes to a Wedding

  11. Our club, the Westerly-Pawcatuck Region AACA has been going to Hershey for decades. This year we will be in our regular spot behind the stadium as usual. Exact space is listed in link below. Several of our items are pictured at the link. Have a little fun and stop by our For Sale at Hershey page to see our flea market treasures and to meet the guys. We enjoy talking with fellow AACA members and we may even have that elusive part you are looking for. And if you want to see what Hershey looked like last year check out our gallery of over 300 photos

  13. 1941 buick roadmaster back seat ashtray

    You can purchase a brand new pull, it that is all you need, of very high quality from Boyer's Restorations, 1348 Carlisle Pike, Hanover, PA 17331. He has all sorts of plastic pieces that he makes for Buicks. He also sells exhaust manifolds. The pull you have pictured costs only $16.50 (as of a couple of years ago in his 2012 flyer). I bought it from him and also got a new shift knob for my '41 Roadmaster. Send him a SASE for his flyer or give him a call (717)-632-0670 . By the way, the one pictured in the back seat photo is the one I got from Boyer's ... that is a photo of my back seat.
  14. Which model of 1941 Buick does this Ashtray Pull fit?

    Neil, Thanks for checking your Super.Exactly right on the Roadmaster which I have. There are cutouts on each end. This one is straight and I did not find that out until I received it in the mail and tried to fit it. It must be the Century and Special.
  15. I have a 1941 Buick Roadmaster. A while back I bought the wrong rear ashtray pull from an online vendor. Can anyone identify which '41 Buick model(s) this belongs to? I suspect it is for the Series 40 and 50. Photos are attached. Thanks!
