    These are random photos that I've taken of my Buick Reatta
  2. Thank a BCA Member

    Thanks to Dave Lemke (DAVES89) and Jim Finn (Jim) for supplying me with Reatta parts. Without them my car wouldn't be on the road today. Also, a big thank you to all the members of the Reatta forum who have helped me over the years with repairs on my Buick Reatta.

    Yep. That photo was taken a few years ago before I got the chrome seven spoke wheels.
  8. Favorite Pictures of My Buick Reatta

    I would be happy to do that. There are 318 curves in 11 miles. Most of them are really tight turns. People who like to go fast like it because In that 11 miles there are no roads coming in from the side to worry about. Just curves. I have been there many times and I always enjoy it. Here is a link to my latest adventure on the Tail of the Dragon.
  9. Frequently when I do a forum search I get the following message and the search returns no results. What is causing it? Anyone else experience this problem? I think it started with the last forum update.
  10. Memes for Newsletter Use

    I know this is an old thread but I was wondering how the Fair Use laws might apply to AACA newsletters and websites? Fair use - Wikipedia
  11. Is my ammeter burned out.

    I just looked at the wiring diagram you provide in the .pdf. The heavy wires on the ammeter connect to the voltage regulator and the battery. The ammeter appears to be in the battery charging circuit. Since the ammeter is reading a negative value I suspect a bad regulator - Or if you didn't find any burned wires or bad fuses and the regulator is good you might need to polarize the generator/voltage regulator after the sparking episode at the ignition switch. I'm just trying to think of something that would cause the ammeter to read a negative value.
  12. Forum New Look

    I agree. I like programs that are intuitive enough that you don't need instructions.
  13. Forum New Look

    What kind of computer did she have? In 1982 William Shatner's commercial convinced me to buy a Commodore VIC-20 computer complete with a cassette recorder to load programs into the VIC. I had to learn to write my own programs for it because there were only a handful of programs for it that you could buy. The "return" key on it (and other odd ball computers I've owned) was equivalent to the "Enter" key on modern day computers. The "escape" key was a "<---" back arrow key.
  14. I know the forum administrators have more important things to do but... several forum members, including me, have expressed their desire to have the "Like button" icon changed from a heart to something more suitable for an automotive forum. We like things that are posted on the forum but rarely do we love them. Any moderator with permission to access the forum's Admin Panel could make the change in less than 15 minutes in just a few easy steps listed below. Here is the result showing what the new Like button would look like: First copy this (or any .png file you prefer) to your computer where it can easily be found. Or you can download this one from here for free. Next go to the forum's Admin panel and select the Member Settings --> Reputations & Reactions --> Reactions Tab. Then click "Edit" for the Like icon. A new window will popup that will allow you to navigate to the new "Like button" icon that you saved to your computer. Select it and then click "Save". That's all there is to it!
  15. That looks great! Thank you Peter for all you do.
