  1. If they have drain plug ,remove oil and if rusty oil flush with mineral spirits . refill and see if they leak . Might be best to call apple for a recommend and best oil on todays market .

    Buick Question

    I would say the motor and tranny came from a special as well as all other parts to make the conversion .Or it was a special order Roadmaster at the time as the crank would have had to be machined for a stick .

    Question for 1965 Buick folks

    You have to remember they are Wi. cars that have been sitting idle for 15 years . Many times people think they are sitting on Gold when it might not even reach silver .

    Towing with an Enclave - Anybody done it

    Bite the bullet and buy her a enclave and a pre 2000 low milege Suburban or Tahoe for towing . Last month GM ran 15 % off on a enclave and it appears to still be going on in my area . but sales vary by zip code .Mine listed at 50 and the fully loaded was 53. all I am missing is the rear entertainment package . It has premium sound and Nav.. Reason I say older Suburban or Tahoe is they had the seats that were flat and not like todays . I had a 100LB Lab and getting the way new seats fold was hard .She is gone now so I bought a new suburban . Haven't towed jet but I think the old 350s were better with their tranny than the new many gear ones. If you find a larger engine better yet . 2018 Enclave will have changes and some restyling .

    Problems with Lester tires

    Thank whom ever is responsible for changing the compounds used in making the Rubber for tires. The old classic tires use the modern type material .
  12. The third party workers are more than likely contract workers who receive very little benefits and limited wages. saving the auto industry big bucks on labor and more for the top as a bonus.
  13. It happened to me once with no lights on anything at sunset , turned out to be the ground on the floor dimmer switch.
