  1. Trying to decide

    I have never owned a Crossfire and they are a good looking car but I know 2 people who have owned them and both have told me they are a nightmare to keep running. one is my next door neighbor. His daughter purchased a Crossfire after he advised her not to. Now it just sits not running He is not a mechanic and when he asked me why it wouldn't run I didn't have any advise I have not looked at the car but I did offer the following advise I told him to find a salvage yard and buy my Reatta. Hind site is still 20/20 here in Kansas
  2. Thanks very much to the Reatta Division!

    Congrats Bob well deserved You are looking good and your car also Chuck

  6. zippered portfolio

  7. zippered portfolio

    A friend of mine needed some cash and he had a Reatta zippered portfolio for sale. I purchased it from him for $200.00 It is in good shape and it has the flashlight that works, and the tire guage.. It is missing the pen.. It has the 1990 owners manual the Reatta road map, the Reatta little build book, uncut plastic key, and the signed craftsman log. I have no need to keep it ;and it is for sale for $200.00 that I paid plus shipping for $10.00. contact me at if you have an interest.

    Hey Barney thanks for posting this. I would have to wonder why we are just now hearing about this. Don was a good guy and knew a lot about Reattas RIP Don
  9. 1990 Select 60 Restoration project

    I don't see why this car couldn't be an easy fix. Most of the items that are listed are not drivability issues. The tires would be the first item to be taken care of. Then the ABS if the red brake light is not on, then everything else can be done a little at a time. If I didn't already have a S60 I would buy ;the car. Somebody will get a great deal

    John you are correct I did a little research. The information on the history from the school the program was started in 1976 by an entrepreneur Gaines H. Billue gifted over 125 classic and antique cars provided initial funds for the program. in 1997 the program attracted the attention of Jay Leno who established the the Fred Duesenberg Scholarship and the Jay Leno Popular Mechanics Scholarship. Both Scholarships continue to fund the school and the College remains the the only school to provide a bachelor's degree in Restoration Technology. When I was on the Buick Club board I tried to have the BCA establish a scholarship but that effort fell short. The way to get youth in the BCA is to get them involved. If Leno can do it WHY CANT WE.....

    As Terry said this is an amazing show that is put on by the students of the restoration college. This is a 4 year degreed program and I believe this is the only degreed program in the United States from the last information that I have. Our Bugle editor, Pete Phillips is a graduated of this program. Several cars at the show today have won awards at Pebble Beach and are amazing. It was good to see Terry working to represent our club working to sign up new members. Thanks Terry good job. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in cars old or new put this school on your bucket list. I have gone to this show for the 3rd time and every year it gets bigger and bigger. A lot of the students are walking the show field all day long and they are always happy to tell you what they are building at the current time. Its a good way to spend the day.

  15. Right Hand Drive

    There is a right hand drive convertible but it was converted for use in New Zealand It has been several years. The owner has passed and I don't know what happened to the car.I remember that Jim Finn was part of the conversion as ;he furnished parts and went to New Zealand to furnish parts and what ever.. I for got the owners name so maybe Jim will chime in here to see if he has any more input
