Red, White, and Blue Reattas

Recommended Posts

It's not that I wanted to, I was seduced!  I lost my head!

I was taken in first by my shiny 1990 RED Coupe, a beautiful car, the man had died, and his brother was just trying to get rid of it, so I bought it for $700.  Who could resist?  All it needed was a windshield, a little brake work,  and the heater&A/C   repaired. Oh yeah, one headlight didn't work, and the windows were sticking,  smoke poured off the manifold on startup, but that's just a valve cover gasket, right?   When I got it home, I found a  few more things wrong, Like the sub frame bushings being shot, the windows don't work, the interior is worn. 155K and little maintenance. The Clearcoat is peeling in several places.   But I loved how it drove, how my little frame fit in it, and the ways guys eyes follow me down the road. One guy even tailed me home wanting to know all about it.  That was my first week.  This car may be for sale.

I started looking for a nicer Reatta, one with fewer problems.  So back to Craigslist, Autotrader, and here in Denver, A shiny BLUE coupe with 46,000 miles, new tires, brakes, everything works.  The widow is selling her husbands dream car. Asking $5000.  Gorgeous. How could I resist?  I have been driving and fixing this car for the past six months. In future posts I will detail my experiences with this beautiful car, nearly perfect in all respects. This car may be for sale.

Today I am going down to Denver to buy my third Reatta, a WHITE 1991 coupe with 36k and a clean Carfax. His grandfather gave him the car when the engine developed a terrible knock.  I'm certain that a harmonic balancer will fix this problem.  I am excited about this car even though the paint job is bad in several places.  This car will be my daily driver.

To Ronnie,

You have first dibs on this car and I will deliver it to you!

 

Thanks but I'm not in the market for another Reatta right now. I'm trying to decide if I should sell the one I've got. :unsure:

I am sorry to hear that.  I know you really love this car.  Do you have a lot of problems with this car?  Can you help me get connected with these two websites. Are there instructions on how to create a persona with quotes  and car info etc.  I am a little behind on computer literacy.

I would like to take a more active role in the Reatta community.

I have no problem with the Buick Reatta.  I sometimes get discouraged because there are none of them in the area where I live.

Which two websites?

If you want to add a signature line (persona with quotes  and car info etc) to the bottom of your posts, click on your name in the top right corner of this page. Then click on "Account Settings" in the menu that drops down. You will be taken to your account settings page where you will see "Signature" on the left. Click that and you can put what you want your signature line.

 

We would love for you to take a more active role in the Reatta community!!!
