    Hershey 2018

    MrEarl Shore Buick was in Sunrise Highway in Bellmore it was A 50s-60s modern building tall full glass front those letters were on the front of the building. the franchise went out during the consolidation GM did with Buick pairing with GMC. Shore was a single car line point so the Buick point was moved to Sun in Wantagh, who had GMC (they sponsor our LI chapter show). the building was finally torn down about 3 years ago and is now a big parking lot for the Big appliance store PC Richards which is across the side street. i remember going to look at the last gen Riviera Silver Arrow they had on the floor. i was unable to come up with a pic i am going to contact another member of our chapter that might have more info on the dealer and letters.The drawing above as nice as it is is nothing like the actual building. nice score
  2. My sons 2005 Century under 50k after a Deer decided to jump in front of it last night, he is OK the air bags did their job, thank GOD. Man do i hate this pic
  3. A FEW MORE FROM THE NE REGIONAL THANKS FOR A GREAT SHOW
  4. Went to a local all make car show with some chapter members today. It was a charity event for the John Theissen Children's Foundation. Got quite exciting when the Football player signing autographs was Ottis Anderson, Superbowl MVP in 1991 who received a 1991 red Reatta conv. from Buick. He came over to my car and was thrilled to see one just like the one he received in '91. Pretty cool day

    Real nice cars. I have 2 questions, where did you get the steering wheel cover with the Buick logo. And. When you put your window up or down the stickers don't get peeled off?

    91 Reattas in Trade Schools

    There always seem to be stories around Indy pace cars. I have a consumer 75 Buick pace car so when you get to 75 contact me I can tell u what I have picked up over the years. Once racing is involved everything gets more interesting

    I D. TAG BEHIND RIGHT HEADLAMP

    Thanks Barney my VIN is 900336 red and tan top. The C05 on the tag is the spo code for a convertible as mine is.i think the first letter in the upper left is the year code, because if the red tag you posted is an 88 and mine a 91 that works. I don't know why mine wouldn't have the stripe code though. Now please be aware my car on the window sticker was not delivered to a dealer but went to BMD show cars, don't know if that matters. I am attaching my SPID label not a great pic but the only one I have handy. I think the test tags are real interesting. Thanks again

    I D. TAG BEHIND RIGHT HEADLAMP

    Reatta Pace Cars

    I know this has been mentioned before but for the newer members who might not be aware of it, The 88 PPG Reatta pace car. Here are a few pics. And I'm going on record I really like the lower aero treatment all around, it's a shame no one made this as a kit. I believe the pic without the light bar is later than the others the last I knew some years ago it was in a private collection here on Long Island, it had been up for sale with a big pricetag

    I D. TAG BEHIND RIGHT HEADLAMP

    I had to remove the complete right (passenger) headlamp assembly recently doing some work. On the radiator support there is a metal tag riveted on with stamped numbers. What is this tag for and is there a break down if the numbers/codes.

    STEERING WHEEL RECOLOR

    Has anyone recolored by paint or dye their Reatta steering wheel. my steering wheel is color worn and faded in spots but still intact and i would like to save it if possible. looking for input on what anyone may have done with good or bad results Thanks ahead of time
  15. My wife and I went to an evening car show 3 to 8 at the Food and Fun deli nice show sponsored by the local Caddy club. We took the 91 Reatta for a nice 35 miles felt great. The only Reatta at the show with just one other Buick, check out the pic with the Allante, GM cousins
