  1. Agree! I had to get a picture of this one when I saw it at the Syracuse Nationals in July.

    Amazing -- pretty girl and "Super Dyna Flow" -- no translation required.

    Kick down not working

    If you listen under the hood with key ON engine OFF, you should hear the solenoids inside the transmission clicking in either case...
  4. If they are rust stains, you could try making a solution of Oxalic acid crystals (aka: wood bleach). Saturate a paper towel, place it on the stain and let it set. Lather, rinse & repeat... If it improves, but requires longer 'set' time, you could cover the paper towel with plastic wrap to slow the evaporation. https://www.amazon.com/Savogran-10501-Wood-Bleach-12/dp/B000VBGH82/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1534038890&sr=8-5&keywords=oxalic+acid

    Kick down not working

    With the vacuum modulator disconnected, I would expect that you must be holding 1st gear pretty long and shifts would be hard, as the trans thinks you have low vacuum (i.e., WOT)...

    '71 GS Stage 1 (Not Mine)

    It screams "1971" for sure! "Lime Mist" was exclusive to the GS, Sport Wagon & Skylark.
  8. I saw this advertised locally on craigslist... https://syracuse.craigslist.org/cto/d/1971-grand-sport-stage-1/6665933583.html
  9. A pair of original, low mileage 6th generation Rivieras: https://syracuse.craigslist.org/cto/d/1979-buick-riviera-mint/6666486552.html https://syracuse.craigslist.org/cto/d/im-selling-my-1984-buick/6649574388.html

    1964 Wildcat 401cid timing gear

    I think that you will be able to see the gear if you remove the fuel pump and use a flashlight and dental mirror, or borescope if you can borrow (or buy) one. The pump is night next to the cam gear on the nailhead. It wasn't that close on my Pontiac, but I was still able to get a good look at it using a mirror.

    Ignition Nut Wrench / Spanner

    I just bought one of these to change my watch battery -- worked great! I'll have to see whether the spanner would work on Goldie... https://www.amazon.com/GZNIGHT-Adjustable-Opener-Remover-Watchmaker/dp/B079CJRWL2/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1533601252&sr=8-8&keywords=watch+spanner+wrench
  12. It's still listed. No mention of Mecum in the ad. 34K miles seems odd; I'd guess really 134K, but the condition (at least judging from the photos) seems better than that. If 134K, the car may have spent most of its life with a long-term owner who cared for it. If it hangs around, I might just have to take a look at it myself...
  13. Decent looking '79 S-Type with the turbo V6. https://binghamton.craigslist.org/cto/d/1979-buick-riviera-type/6661202406.html
  14. Wow -- now that's LOW!
