  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.....
  6. 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.
  7. I think that is great. Good job Brian you deserve it. Congrats Chuck
  9. I have one just like it and it has a pewter plaque attached and it for for 100% accomplishment from the spring of 1976. The one I have was from Fiore Buick I have had it for years and that is the only one I have ever seen
  10. 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
  11. And of course there is a Polo Green Convertible rat holed that only a few people know where it is........If I knew I wouldn't tell HERE WE GO AGAIN
  12. Kingsley I also wanted to chime in on your contribution to the Reatta Division. All of the time you spent getting the proto car moved to California was no simple task and the Division owes you a big thanks for that. If it was not for you, Barney, Jim, Ed and a few others that car might have been crushed. I addition to all of the advise to me when I was the Division director. I thank you I wish you the best and make sure you continue to follow all of the guys on the forums. I hope you have a great New Year Chuck
  13. I was successful in getting a room today for the 114.00 rate. Joanne was very helpful..
  14. Good job John Thanks and Merry Christmas Chuck
  15. The results of this simple test makes good sense..I would wonder if shelf life would not be a big factor if the main stress would be the amount of use on the blader. A new un used accumulator should have a long shelf life which is good news
