  1. Sorry Lamar, getting off track. Your establishment is shaping up to be perfection, unbelievable detail and the use of material with many years of patina is in my eyes ( and many, many others ) just plain beautiful. Give us a yell if you need an Australian Dunny door - I could probably track one down and it would go nicely with that jar of Vegemite. I'm really looking forward to see the internal fit out stage, what treasures are going to adorn those walls??
  2. No, these critters aren't scared to maintain eye contact with humans, generally at this point it's a good thing to take a large step backwards. And they damage Buicks.
  3. 1948 Buick lost knob

    A friend has lost a knob for his 1948 Roadmaster Sedanet and I have posted the following wanted advert. Anyone on this Forum have one laying about that might like to immigrate to Australia ?
  4. 1948 Radio Knob

    A friend has lost/misplaced a knob from the radio in his 1948 Buick. The missing part is the one on the right in the attached photo ( no writing on it ). Anyone have a spare and be willing to post it to Australia?
  5. Want to Purchase 37 or 38 Buick Century/Special

    Here's a challenge for you Ben - see if you can work out the speedo reading on this photo ( the one with my mate Merv behind the wheel ) I know what speed he was doing but we have a blanket upper limit of 60MPH in West Australia so I better not drop him in. The car is a 1950 Super with Dynaflow and 3.6 rear end. Easily maintained that speed right across the Nullarbor with the odd burst higher just to blow out the cobwebs!!

    She's under the car ( in the shadow, hard to see ) waiting for her offsider mechanic to pass the new spider gear set ( in the box ) to her so she can install them.

    Talk about inequality Willie - look at how the men had to do undercar work. Not too sure what the Occupational Health and Safety Office would say about the Esso Servicenter under car working arrangements.
  8. 1936 46C on eBay

    This is a Century 66C which is claimed to be Cardinal Maroon which was an original colour. Not nearly as bright as the fire engine red of the 46C - which I don't really mind. But I can't really talk - I painted a 1934 Buick Roadster a fairly bright red!!
  9. 34 5-Window Coupe ?

    G'day Ray34, Where are you in Aus ? Only 3 body styles were produced by Holden for the 1934 Series 40 - 4 door Sedan, Roadster and Coupe. Your body style doesn't resemble the 1934 1935 Series Coupe bodies built by Holden. I am not familiar with this style being produced in the USA either but someone from there will let us know. Do you have any history on the car? Could it be an English import with British coachwork? Are there any identifying tags? You may find some under the front seat or on the firewall. Let us know what you find out and will do some more research for you.
  10. 1936 46C on eBay

    Series 40 233ci motors ran 1934, 1935 and 1936 and all had the oil filler on the push rod cover. On this motor the aluminium filler cap has been replaced with a later model cap. The valve cover looks a bit odd at 1st glance but it is 1936. Someone has bolted something to it as there are 4 additional bolts on the rear section - I can't imagine what that could be.

    Correct Pete, should be a 233. Looks to be a 233 so I'm thinking the owner doesn't know.

  13. MrEarl's Daily Therapeutic Dose of Buick

    This one is great therapy - everything I like and I'm betting my old mate Ben AKA First Born will as well. 1950 Buick complete with accessory front fender guards ( which Dylan is casually resting his black and white loafers on ), a stainless .357 magnum Ruger Security Six with 2 1/2" barrel and ? - oh yeah, Jessica Harper. Think I might have to buy this movie poster for the shed wall https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Blue-Iguana-1988-US-One-Sheet/162564701425?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D36f5577766304ccc9773817f0600fed9%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D162564701425&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507
  14. 1920 ute

    Don't forget you need to specify wether it's a tabletop ute or a wellbody ute!!
