  1. Headlights: sealed beam, Halogen, HID, LED???

    Really guys? Very much tongue in cheek. If YOUR high beams are on, you may get a quick flash WITHOUT the driving/spots (they were on a separate switch). I live in the sticks where deer/etc are a very real threat. You need all the light possible for when zero traffic is around (trailing a car or a car approaching). Jeesh.
  2. 1971 GS rear bumper ?

    Not necessarily "rare" but very desirable. Known as the N-25 option for 1971 and 1972 (72's had the rubber around the taillights and holes through the bumper to bolt that rubber on). Not standard but, like I said, optional.
  3. 1987 Buick Grand National for sale

    I agree will Bill above. Way too many mods; Instrument cluster, front mount intercooler, shifter, etc. If you want maximum price, you need to return to completely stock. This may bring $10,000 in current state. I would move it back to stock configuration and then price it at your asking price.
  4. Car Country Salvage Yard

    Is is a 1975 or 76 model year? I really could use the coat hooks, if possible.
  5. This one wasn't my fault...honest

    You are correct...Skyhawk was V6 only from 1975 through 1980 model years.
  6. Car Country Salvage Yard

    More photos of the 'Hawk, especially the interior!!! I could use some stuff. Thank you in advance for your efforts!!!!
  7. 1979 Buick Estate Wagon Limited - Southern Belle

    It's a case of mom and dad wanting the comfort of cloth and the kids getting the vinyl for longevity.
  8. 1979 Buick Estate Wagon Limited - Southern Belle

    There were several years, across different generations of Buick wagons, wherein the cloth front seat was offered along with a vinyl rear seat(s).
  9. 1972 BUICK GS STAGE1 20,703 MILES

    Don't believe so, Bill. Tow package was mainly suspension, gears, cooling type stuff.
  10. 1972 BUICK GS STAGE1 20,703 MILES

    And to add to Adam's comments, there really was no performance increase from a B4B manifold other than the weight saving over an iron intake.
  11. November Bugle 2017

    With all due respect, I have to disagree a little Larry. The current BOD did just recently approve a Performance Division that allows racing with insurance. While that is not everyone's "cup of tea", it will bring more members into the club, members that pay dues and make the entire group stronger with diversified ideas and goals (and PEOPLE). Take my word for it, a race car is defiantly NOT a show car. I'm one of those young whipper-snapper guys that likes those sporty cars (I'll be 60 my next birthday) but I think all current BCA members will never find a better group of people than the racers. I believe nearly all really appreciate a beautiful automobile, be it 10 or 100 years old.
  12. This one wasn't my fault...honest

    Tell her to just to keep me in mind....I'm patient. The chrome around the grille opening is a decal, much like your lower grille openings. Mine is missing the lower decals (could not find them....and that was several years ago). The upper grille is a NOS decal I found over 15 years ago. Made of unobtanium...
  13. This one wasn't my fault...honest

    where you're ready to sell, let me know...i'm interested!
  14. This one wasn't my fault...honest

    Beautiful 'Hawk. get rid of those afteraftermarket wires and put on the correct hubcaps. You're also missing the chrome trim around the upper grille opening..... Love these cars!!!!
  15. Straight 8 top speed

    Now, aren't y'all glad you asked?? ;-)
  16. Rare : Buick Skyhawk D - Wheels Aluminum - $500

    Yes, they do. I bought a set a year or so ago for my 1975 Skyhawk. Made in China, but what isn't anymore.
  17. '53 Skylark -why so cheap?

    Judging by the trees in the background, this one has been sitting around for a long time, at least more than 6 months. The dealer that has it is located in west central Ohio, just north of Dayton on I-75. The ad does say it needs a complete restoration.
  18. Fuel cap 70 GS

    Proper cap for a 49 state emission 1970 A-Body is NOT-vented.
  19. How Many Cars, How Many Buicks

    12,000 ft lbs???? How do you keep rear ends in it?
  20. Towing with an Enclave - Anybody done it

    WOW!! Would you look at that! Elvis is from Ohio!! How can I tell, you ask? Why, he has a little "O" under his tail!!
  21. Buicks at Country Classics

    There is a reason for this, you know....Too big and you can see too much.
  22. I just DON'T like the picture of this Buick

    That is someone with too much time and a sawsall.....
  23. 2017 national meet photos

    My Mom had an identical '56 Super...lots of memories came welling up seeing that. Wish I were there to speak with the owner.
  24. 1964 Electra 225 2 Door Hardtop on CL- Southern MD

    Interesting choice of least it's a Buick. Modern seats too.
  25. 1956 Stationwagon $2500 Oklahoma

    Nevada plates...much dryer than Oklahoma...
