    1958 Wells Fargo Limited to be Auctioned

    Very curious to see what it brings. There are lots of people out there that really want this being one of them. If I had deep enough pockets, you bet I would be doing whatever it takes.
  3. If the rest of the car is as the interior shows, then I think the price is right. If it is indeed a "coupe" as the ad says. The engine shot and door panel are enough for me to see that it's a legit mileage car. The color combo sucks, though.

    Help Identifiying and Looking for a 1960 Wagon

    Who is to say that car wasn't stripped of all its bright moldings to be decorated like that? I think to positively ID that car, we would have to see a tag. Most others are easy to spot, though. The presence or absence of certain moldings will tell the story.

    That's awesome, Tom! I know why I added you to the 71-72 Big Buick group on Facebook.

    To resonate or not?

    I am putting resonators back on the 67 Electra I'm working on. The owner wants it as quiet as possible. The Electra isn't meant to have a loud exhaust. I suppose the Riviera could go either way. If you like a good exhaust rumble, leave them out. If you want quiet, put them on.

    My 57 Buick special project

    It just follows the body line all the way down. I did it free hand on Lance's 57.

    1973 Centurion convertible trunk mat

    Not the rubber mat. My 71 had the felt-like material and cardboard liner.

    My 57 Buick special project

    One thing to note is that when the suspension is completely unloaded, the rear end will sit off to one side a bit, due to the geometry of the bar. But I would really try to source one from another car. That one is fubar.

    Definitely is supposed to be straight.
