  1. I was lucky enough to meet Ben yesterday for a chat at the swap meet
  2. A big hello to every one from me at the Nationals in Denver. Having heard of Gary's difficulties with receiving his replacement interior, I have decided to hold off ordering until things sort themselves out. Cheers Paul
  3. Hello from Denver I was kindly given a ride in this fabulous chain driven Buick today, what a privilege! Does that count??

  6. Hi All, We just returned from our Club President's weekend in he Hunter Valley wine region which is about 110 miles north of Sydney. My '36 is off the road for the moment for repairs so I had a chance to drive a '83 Riv and a '64 Electra....quite a deal different from my '36 Enjoy the few photos....the young lady in the last photo was quite taken with the 72 Riv and asked for a photo. The owner, one of our older members was quite excited! 2 and a 1/2 weeks until I fly to the State, Maine first stop to see an old friend and then back to Denver for the Nationals Cheers Paul

    1936 Buick radio and speaker

    Hi Stuart, Thanks for the info. I understand that the Holden bodied models had the smaller speaker mounted in the headliner immediately above the rear view mirror with the American models under the dash as per the images you have posted. All of the Fisher models I have seen seem to show the under dash speaker mounted in the middle of the fire wall but due to the proximity of the engine to the fire wall I cannot see whether there is a pilot hole there or not. Does anyone out there have a picture of a '36 firewall sans engine? Cheers Paul

    1936 Buick radio and speaker

    Hi all, I am seeking some help with fitting a period radio and speaker. I seem to recall that the fire wall has some guide holes for fitting the receiver (mine seem to be covered by a new fuse box when the car was restored by the previous owner) but I am having difficulty find where and how the speaker is fitted, Any help would be greatly appreciated cheers Paul

    Idler arm for a 1936 Buick

    Hi all, I am looking for a replacement idler arm for my '36 Buick 40. I was wondering whether anyone could direction me to a supplier/ individual that might be able to help me In the alternative, can some-one advise as to whether the '36 and '37 arms might be interchangeable Cheers Paul
  11. You could always join us on the next run, there should be spare seats! The American dollar is back with a vengeance so it would be kind of cheap for you to come across??!!

    New member with ‘36 Buick Special looking for parts

    I also have both '36 radio heads but only the standard radio with separate speaker. When I was having the radio restored the technician found that the deluxe and standard radios and heads were not instantly compatible and sadly I could not use the much nicer looking deluxe head. Maybe I will have to buy another '36 so that I can use the head!
  13. Just a few more photos from our recent pre-war run
  14. Buick Club of NSW - pre-war run. Hi all, thought i would post some photos from last weekends run to the wine region of Mudgee, located 180 miles north west of Sydney. We had 16 cars attend with about 33 people and had a fabulous time winding our way on the back roads, visiting wineries and country towns along the way.
