    where did my ad go - anyone know??

    Yeah, it's right here: http://forums.aaca.org/topic/314076-1950-buick-cleveland-very-nice-shape-want-to-sell-now-harvey-actors-collection/ That's the general 'for sale' side, and this is the Buick specific 'for sale' side. Feel free to cross-post. I don't think there's a rule against that...

    64 Riviera bidding at $22k

    That's funny. I was thinking to myself that I would have expected Travis Barker to have better looking tires. That's about the only thing I would change... Then I watched the video and saw that Travis *did* have better looking tires.

    Accumulator Grief

    Yes, I found their phone number on their website because it said they were out of stock but I wanted more info. When I called, the phone company said that number is no longer in service.

    Spinning Wheels appears to be MIA. The phone number from their web site is out of service.

    Golden parts car, not mine $1500

    But look at that million dollar patina! 😜
  6. Good luck to you, I hope you get it all sorted. Unfortunately, without a WRITTEN warranty, I'm going to expect the seller to do exactly zero. Without a written document you have no legal protection, and the seller probably knows this. Occasionally you get an upright guy who may throw a little back your way, so it doesn't hurt to ask. There are a few things in this story that don't make sense to me, but as long as you have competent mechanics that you can trust, I'll assume it'll all work out in the end. Have you popped the valve covers on the original engine? I'm curious if that's where your #8 rocker came from. I'm wondering if they didn't break one early after the rebuild and just slipped in a used rocker. Does it have an aftermarket cam profile? Perhaps more lift than stock?

    Anyone know the back story on this?

    Looks like it’s from a LeMons race, to me... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/24_Hours_of_LeMons

    Should the 56 start in drive and reverse?

    Ours does, but the pedal start was defeated long before we got it... Whoever put the button in bypassed everything factory.

    1956 parts book, group and parts number?

    Group 3 is Fuel & Carburetion...

    1989 BUICK DIMENSIONS 3.5 FLOPPY DISK

    Yeah, I’m thinking it might be fun to display with Ruby at the nationals in Oklahoma City next year! Now I’ll be on the lookout for a 1990 version to go with Pepper... 🧐

    OK, I just impulse bought a Mac version of the same disk. I'll report back later... lol

    1989 BUICK DIMENSIONS 3.5 FLOPPY DISK

    Well... since I have an '89 and a '90, this interests me as well. What I'd actually do is pull screen grabs (none of this video camera on a CRT business), and convert it into an interactive slide deck. For universal access, I'd probably convert it all to PDFs. If someone can get me the data off the floppy, I'd be glad to give it a go.

    1989 BUICK DIMENSIONS 3.5 FLOPPY DISK

    Wow, a 720k! lol One less hole than a 1.44M 😁 Win95 *might* run it, but the 3.1 machine for sure will. Please note: It says to “Feel free to copy and pass on to friends!”

    I run mostly Macs, but I've got specialized equipment that I have to keep XP around for. The Commodores are just for fun.
  15. I believe they are plug & play, no wiring mod needed, for 90/91 Reattas (and the billion other models they fit).
