  1. This place had 4 Reatta

    I was there a few weeks ago before I headed up to WI. And looking at that video it was the first warehouse that burned down. (there are about 6 warehouses stacked full of classic automobiles) Unfortunately the warehouse that burned down had two white 1990 convertible reattas. You are correct on them having 4. There is also another white convertible in another warehouse and then a 1988 black Reatta that sits in the "boneyard" I took a look at all 4, and the ones that burned were by far in best shape.. Odd that a few weeks after I was there the place burns down, what a shame
  2. Interesting Reatta Color?

    Very Interesting! But yeah I agree the sideskirts don't look good IMO. neither do those rims, But great find!
  3. Interesting Reatta Color?

    I did find this actually! But I wish there was one stock looking with the alloys and pinstripes, but beggars can't be choosers!
  4. Interesting Reatta Color?

    Quite possibly haha, But I am curious as to what it would look like in real life perspective
  5. Interesting Reatta Color?

    Was it okay looking? Would be awesome if there were a picture
  6. Interesting Reatta Color?

    Now I've had some time on my hands lately, looking into things for my Reatta and what not. Since I plan on getting a new paint job, this thought came into mind and won't go away.. What would like a Ferrari Yellow look like on a Reatta? NOW I want to let you all know I am NOT painting my Reatta yellow, just red.. But in my opinion a bright yellow with black pinstripes would make for a very interesting looking Reatta, in my head it doesn't look half bad! Thoughts anyone?
  7. What to do about driver door:(

    Thank you so much for that! And to answer your question, no I am not going to that Body Shop guy, you are correct, that price is a little exaggerated! I will most likely be buying that black door and having it shipped to my father's work, Advance Auto because that has a towmotor and they said it would be okay to be shipped there. I will take all working components out of my door, along with a new window regulator and window and do the whole installation myself (my father may have to help a little ) Then after the new door and what not is installed I am going to take it to a paint shop in the city, I have a few in mind, and let them just re-paint the whole car red and put new gold pin-striping on. Then I will have to take it back to where I got the car tinted and have that new window tinted.. I hope to see this car as it was seen back in the 80's, like I can't imagine how that new paint is going to shine! Very Excited about that.. But as of now all I can do is plan and wait for a check.

  9. What to do about driver door:(

    Yeah I called 3 so far, none have any Reattas in stock, so i'm afraid there is a road trip ahead or shipping prices
  10. Favorite Pictures of My Buick Reatta

    Oh no sorry to misinform you haha, these pictures were before the incident! Just thought I'd post my favorite pictures, the door is still dented but I'll make sure to take a picture of when it is all fixed up!
  11. Favorite Pictures of My Buick Reatta

    I thought I'd add onto this thread because the more Reattas, the better!
  12. What to do about driver door:(

    Well my body shop guy quoted that the repair for the dented door would cost 3,200 for some ridiculous reason and he sent that to state farm. and they estimated that the current value of my Reatta is about 3,500 dollars. And I don't know how those insurance companies work but they just decided they will give me a check for 3,700 and let me make the decision. So I guess this could maybe be a blessing in disguise?
  13. What to do about driver door:(

    Thank you for all of your input RDG, I will look into scrap yards near me if that has to become an option, and yes I realize that the door can only be shipped to a facility with a loading dock, that adds to my options and things I will have to think about, I just hope I can get this cleared up before the first of September!

  15. What to do about driver door:(

    Oh, by the way.. No it turned out she didn't have any insurance. So the check is coming from my insurance company as an Uninsured Motorist Claim. SO they are going to go after her for not having insurance because I don't think it makes them too happy to hand me a check for 3,700$ But none of that is my business. The faster this money comes the faster my car can be outta this garage catching dust
