  1. Got the chance to get the Queen out today. Not a leaf out on the trees here yet, but it could happen soon. We've had such a mild winter I feel bad saying it knowing what some of ya'all went through. Now the last two weeks have been more winter like than the last four months. Anyway, a massive rain storm came through Friday so with temps in the high 30-low 40's I pulled her out for a spin. Just love to drive that car! When I came home I found my spare clock that I got at that junkyard that was closed two years ago. It was dead when hooked to my spare battery. I pulled off the

  2. Day 2. Distributor. Disassembled the distributor since the driven gear on the bottom of the ~150,000 mile distributor was badly worn, outer edge of gear teeth almost come to a point they are so thin. Everything has to come apart to do this plus it needed to be cleaned. Donor distributor driven gear looked like new, more reason to believe it is a low mile unit, so that unit had to be torn down too (and the matching drive gear is on the rebuilt S/G is another good reason). Lots of nasty grease to clean. All three little centrifical weight springs found loose in the bottom of the

  4. Brian, how many years ago has that been that you got that unit from me? I'm thinking somewhere close to 20. At any rate it was money well spent on your part. Sounds like you will be good for another 20 at least. I'm really glad things worked out well for you with that. Terry Wiegand Doo Dah America

  5. Looks like it's been several months since any posting here. No surprise, as work has worn me down to a mid functioning adult. By the time I get home in the evening I am pretty well done, then when the blessed weekend comes I just want to lay around like a lazy old dog. I had a chance to go to unimogjohn's Cars and Coffee show way out in the country but it was not to be - just lacking the get up and go to get up and go. Sorry John - maybe on a warm sunny day I'll make it. I did get up and go to the storage unit this morning, bound to take care of an issue that arose last time I drov

  6. Got totally anal yesterday. Don't know what to call these, but when the trunk lid is raised the drip channel ( where my trunk lid seal runs) was full of mung. Got out a toothbrush, sprayed degreaser along the channel and scrubbed away. No rust at all, but now I feel the need to clear coat the freshened channel. All of this because, I am in the process of polishing rear bumper and spotting in some top coat on flakey areas of the panels. I recently discovered how to use top coat blender and the results are nice. That is definitely obsessive behavior. BTW, the bumper polishing is tur

  8. Lol! Probably getting too old for it myself, that winching leaves you with arms and a back like jello! I'm competing with the Georgia Buick farm. After tomorrow, I'll have 4 here at the house!

  9. Had an AACA meeting this afternoon and put about 40 miles on the Buick - sunny, cool and windy, but a great day to dive the Buick. We had two new families join and another visiting, so a good day for the AACA! Out of 21 member families we had 10 old cars (25 years or older) at the meeting.
