    All, The website for the 2016 BCA 50th is now live http://www.buickclub.org/2016anniversary/ Also we have a new feature, online registration. I tried it out already and it is pretty slick and i think you will like it. Please direct questions as per the registration form indicates as i do not have specific detailed information personally. NOTE: Hotels will not take Reservations until August (inside of 1 year out) Moderators if you would be so kind as to leave this in the Buick -General section until June15th before moving to Buick-events section it would be appreciated. Thanks,

    I have a puzzle that I hope some of you can help solve. I bought this toy display case years ago and don't know anything about it. It is 36" wide, 12" high and 9" deep with a plexi front cover. The top of the case says Snap-On Building 1. I have googled the case and cannot find anything about it. When was it made? How rare is it? Any info would be helpful. Thanks Frank

    Use the forum search feature (BCA General ... texas road warriors) to find some of our previous (mis)adventures. It all started 10 years ago (http://forums.aaca.org/topic/71039-on-the-way-to-batavia/?hl=batavia). This should serve as fair warning to anybody in our way north of Texas and an invitation to other drivers from Texas to join the fun. There are no caravans, schedules or other requirements; just a bunch of independent contractors that sometimes end up at the same place. Also, participants should save up for gas and oil (we're driving Buicks after all) and stock up on sliced Barbeque Brisket and Fajitas...if gas prices go up any more consider baloney sandwiches.

    Here are some pics of my 65 GS that is slowly coming together. I hope to have the front fenders and hood on by the end of the month and the bumpers and glass in soon as well. Final vacuum lines and A/C wiring needs to be done before the windshield goes in. Restored dash and passenger bolster was done by Just Dashes in Van Nuys and the rear package tray is a fiberglass unit that was covered in correct vinyl by Clark's.

    I figured I'd give the order a whirl it's only 3 bux and then we'll know. If it's not I'll take you up on the offer. My temp fix seems to be working quite well but I'd like to recondition the headlight assemblies fully once the parking brake is settled. Oddly the headlamp motors look very newish or at least reconditioned...missing several niggling pieces of hardware (mostly nuts). Thx for you gracious offer, I'll let you know something soon. P.S. I've been using supermotors site for picture hosting...it make's things easy especially when sharing on multiple forums.

    If you have some mechanical ability, as you state, I wouldn't let parts availability influence a decision. Most things on antique cars can be rebuilt, and given a little time, most things can be found. The Model A is a great choice if you want to be able to just pick up the phone and get any part you want, but you'd be giving up the better ride and comfort of a larger car. Model A's are great cars, too, and there are lots of them...but my vote is for something a little out of the ordinary. Also, personally, I don't like the modifications to the A that you discuss, they dilute the experience of driving an antique car as they were, and being in the experience. I never will understand why people go to 12 volt so quickly, when a properly set up 6 volt system works perfectly well. I realize in the case you state it was to run the AC and whatever other electronics they have on the car. From the model numbers, it appears the Reo is a 6 cylinder, the Buick an 8 cylinder? The Buick is more common than the Reo, but probably a slightly heavier car, and possibly a slight edge on higher quality also. I'd go with the Buick if I were you. They are great driving cars, parts are somewhat obtainable, and you'll never be sorry driving an eight cylinder! Best of luck with decision.

    Only because you asked so nicely....and because its 90* in my garage and I just finished installing the door switches I got back from Gord. All my interior lights work like they are supposed to, just dont know for how long. I hate electrical and I hate it even more because its 50 year old wiring that hasnt has power going through it for 13 years.

    Honestly, if it was mine I'd bring it home and drive it until it broke. Get aggressive about it and it will break soon. Then the problem is defined. I remember driving a car home from Buffalo that kept running progressively worse and I was just hoping it would fail completely to identify itself. Imagine going to a doctor, pointing at your arm and saying I have a pain here. The tests and farting around could go on forever. Now, walk in with a compound fracture and the bone sticking out through the skin. Point to that and say "Fix this." Pushing it to the breaking point may be the alternative to speculation, diagnosis by the process of elimination, and the laying of hands. The best idea would be to let the owner of the appraisal company ride along. Call him, tell him you are going to do it, and ask where you can pick him up. I sure wish you lived closer, Bernie Bernie

    Not sure how I missed this. Ronnie: I prefer the 45848 SuperStat - opens and closes fater than a stock one. Fans: Two choices: 1) Reprogram the ECM PROM to bring the fans in faster. Mine are set at LO: 184 on 181 off and HI 189 on and 185 off. I may see it touch 190F at a long stop light but then comes back down. 2) Auxilliary switch like this. Can put in parallel. For an 88 you can jumper the big resistor on the fan so puller goes on HI whenever on.

    Due to the mass of the gears in the differential the amount of fluid is actually quite hi compared to what you think and the gears throw the oil everywhere. It will be fine.

    I just returned from a 3100 mile trip to Detroit and back. I saw some high rip-off gas prices but the highest I paid anywhere was $2.79. I remember paying $2.31 in Springfield. I can make it from home to Springfield in 10+ hours, depending on how much ice tea I drink. Thinking about leaving on Monday and shooting for McAlester or maybe Muskogee, shortening the days to about 5 hours and giving us some time to stop and buy more junk. Last week the grandson and I stopped in Springfield and had the lunch buffet at Bass Pro Shops huge store in Springfield. It is a must see for everyone, even if you don't hunt, fish, or camp out. It is listed at 300,000 sq feet, besides the stuff they sell, they have tanks with fish, ponds (one with alligators) a archery museum and NRA gun museum. See you in Springfield next week.

    Clintonville, WI, home of the FWD, is only about 30 miles away from me. Jeffery (Nash) didn't get into the 4 wheel drive business till 1913. FWD built the first FWD automobile in 1909 which was nicknamed the Battleship. I worked on the two spark magneto for that car........it was by luck I found a man in Nevada who would wind a new coil for it. The company history is there >>> http://www.fourwheeldrivefoundation.com/the-museum

    Another moderator determined that this should be moved here from the AACA General forum. It is my feeling that continued posting by both AACA and BCA groups will only create unnecessary dissension and discord between us and serves no more good purpose. Therefore I am closing it.

    The orange reflective vest I still have. I put it on when I walk the dog and keep it in the trunk otherwise in case I stop to help someone or need to change a tire and I put it in the Buick on tours The 2008 shirts we got two and since we were 'home' I had easy laundry access. I also give many of my Bugles away. Gave one to a nice guy while on vacation in South Carolina last week. He has a nice GS and had never heard of the BCA. He was impressed, as he should be, Pete does a great job.

    There were some aftermarket caps made for the 1936 Dodge too, I used to have a couple that came with a car I bought. They still show up on E-Bay, sometimes listed as NOS, and I am sure many people have bought them without really looking close at them.
