    OK a bit off topic, but I'm excited to share this accomplishment in my professional life with my friends here. In the hard copy version (which I haven't got in the mail yet) the Buick Club of America gets a plug as something people wouldn't know about me (RE: my involvement in the club) https://www.autonews.com/awards/2019-40-under-40-brian-depouli

    Matt/Jack. I went back the next morning with no luck. After reading you posts I went back again and expanded my search. Eureka! I found it 100 feet from the road in a line of trees. It is dirty but not damaged except for two small shallow dents that may have been there prior. I also found out why it came off, the ring that the wheel clips hang on to were bent so the clips would not hold well. Needless to say that will be corrected before I reinstall the hubcap. Thank you for the information

    Received a sad call this afternoon, my long time friend and fellow car collector Don Sommers of American Arrow parts and reproductions has passed away. Just two weeks ago I had an hour long telephone conversation with him. He was kind and generous to a very young boy back in the '70s learning cars. Over the years we did a few car deals and quite a bit of business in mascots, wheels, and other parts. I will miss my old friend. Rest In Peace. Ed

    By the end of the day, I'd installed the trunk trim, side scripts, swapped the wheels and tires for some better tires on blasted and painted wheels, and painted the sweepspear trim. Still lots to do, but a very productive day!

    When our antique cars were just cars........... Mine still are.......we drive them into the ground then restore them again. Who wants a trailer queen? I have driven many CCCA Classic Cars in the snow.......as long as there is no salt on the roads.

    Was revising my pictures and this one definitely has to go in this thread. This, my friends, is what it is all about for me. Owning a 40’s Buick convertible is like nothing else. My wife’s expression says it all. Matt

    Going to try and post a video to YouTube and if it works, I’ll post the link here. Drove it out of the garage under its own power and it’s the first time with the body back on the chassis. It drove really well considering I could only shift into 2nd in my drive. Brakes felt really good with no pulling to either side and no strange noises. It literally started immediately after two pumps on the accelerator then a push on the starter pedal. I realize the minute it fires up, you have to be ready to turn the idle down as it likes to start with a fast idle, but it’s to fast not to turn it down. With the engine warm I decided to quickly wire up the heater fan and switch. Man that Harrison Sr. Heater throws a ton of heat and with the car only being a two seater, my wife should be nice and toasty on our fall rides. The fan on this heater actually spins pretty fast compared to most 6Volt fan motors I’ve messed with.

    And even though my car is light years away from any restoration, I was like a kid on Christmas morning with my new toy! The new plastic is guaranteed not to shrink for life. Whose life is still in question, but since this lives in the garage I don't think it will be a problem. The plastic is translucent. On the dining room table you can see light thru the cast material on the spoke That's how I remembered this car when I got it. It was one of the things I loved about the car! Anyway, just got back from a short drive and it feels so smooth! And I am very happy with the wheel.

    Hello everyone! Yes, the seats were installed on October 19, 2018, and I have been driving her as much as I can! This morning I went for a bagel run, and the odometer turned 700 miles. I REALLY love driving this car!! Just this weekend, the NJ Chapter of the Buick Club of America held it's annual car show. This was the first time I took her out to an actual car show. Members cars were not judged, but we were parked in a prominent spot along the entrance. The show was nicely staged and enjoyed a good attendance. I do have a few finishing touches to take care of: Rear bumper stone guard, Engine pans and fabricate and then install the rear window shade. I'll get to them, but every time I get in the garage, I find myself driving away! I'd like to share a couple of photos from the show. I was told by many people in attendance that I should explore getting a Junior / Senior at Hershey. It's a great feeling when all your hard work is appreciated. I arrived at 7:00 and helped the members with the set up. Later I judged the 70's-80's class. Fun day. You don't realize how much work these clubs put into running a successful show. It is tedious work, and the guys really deserve a lot of credit for making it look so easy. That's a 1941 four-door sedan next to me. My interior Just turned 700. So far, very quiet, trouble-free miles! 1915 Buick 1940 Convertible I don't know the year of the 20-foot land yacht next to me, but it had only 19,000 original miles on it. Our "tails" Roadmaster Convertible. Stunning! This morning on my way out. All waxed and polished from the show! She's getting better everyday! Thanks for checking in! I'll keep you posted as I finish up the last doo-dads! Have a great evening out there.... appreciate you all Gary

    The Scranton Region of the AACA had our show today in the sweltering heat. There was a really nice breeze across the show field. I had never been able to get my car to the show for one reason or another over the last 5 years. Today she was first on the field at 7:30 am. My job was to make sure the show cars were parked in their correct classes. This is the only two pictures I was able to shoot today, being so busy helping out. The first at 730 this morning. The second, which to my surprise is of the two trophies my car was awarded. Had a great day

    The legendary Hale Farm & Village car show returned after more than 30 years. This was always one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. Riley and I rolled down in the Limited and Melanie and Cody drove her '56 Chrysler wagon. Decent turn out for a first time show, although a lot more late-model cars and modified stuff than I like. Maybe 70 cars. Ours was one of two Full Classics (the other being the 1931 Nash sedan I sold a few months ago). Buick pretty popular, pink station wagon VERY popular. No classes, no awards, which was nice. Only one kid in a late-model Mustang did anything stupid. Not bad at all, and we all had a good time despite the heat. Hopefully they can keep it going, I have only good memories of this show from the '70s and '80s. This is what a teenager looks like at a car show (Cody refused to get out of the pink car for some reason--LOL): Decent turn out and variety:

    For sale on Ebay, not mine. This is an odd duck, for sure: 3-speed stick shift, 364 V8, radio delete, poverty hub caps (SO RARE in 1960!!), no power steering, no power brakes, sitting since 1982, not running. Looks like it needs everything except glass. Located in western Nebraska. My kind of car, but I am just totally out of space and so this is out of the question. Someone save it, please. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1960-Buick-LeSabre/392347142294?hash=item5b59b64896:g:6AEAAOSwSQFdL6Pl

    Made a short video of me starting the car and backing it into my garage. My buddy videoing thought the car stalled because he couldn’t hear it running after I turned the high idle down. Not sure if the below will work if copied and pasted on YouTube. Sorry, it’s my first attempt at this. 846691F5 AF09 4578 85B2 F66A0EDC9361

    Today was a good day! Got the last major convertible parts today (with extras) and free delivery! A-pillar interior trim, and a near-complete top assembly in great shape that had the bow I need! The remaining couple parts I can acquire or fabricate (rear interior panels, door interior moldings).

    Your father--like mine--probably hated all the power gewgaws on cars, saying, "It's just one more thing that's gonna break." Well, he was right. My 2010 Cadillac CTS wagon, which has been a mostly satisfactory car, has a power tailgate. I didn't want it, I don't like it, I have never trusted it, and given the leverage involved and the mechanism's small size, I thought it was a genuinely bad idea and felt it was sure to break. Which it has. It hasn't broken in the way that I expected--the electric motor works just fine, it lifts the tailgate into position and [usually] lowers it closed like it should. No, what has broken is whatever computer brain that controls it--that part has gone insane. As a result, it will open itself properly, hang open for an indeterminate and random amount of time, then slam itself shut without any warning as if the motor and gears suddenly vanished, putting the heavy hatch into free-fall. It's been doing this for two or three days and I have an appointment at the dealer to get it fixed next week (although they flat-out said they don't know how to fix it since wagons are so rare they've never had to fix one before). Today I'm unloading some gear from the back of the car and accidentally drop my keys. Without thinking, I place my left hand on the edge of the hatch opening on the passenger side of the car, kind of at the D-pillar where the taillights are, and the hatch SLAMS shut, trapping my hand in the hatch and creating what I can only describe as eye-wateringly exquisite pain. Unfortunately, because it's my left hand, I can't reach the latch to release it, nor can I reach the ground the retrieve my keys to open it. So I resort to yelling until Melanie comes outside to see what's going on. She opens the hatch and my bloody but mostly intact hand is freed, along with most of the weather-stripping from that side of the hatch opening. After some clean-up and some ice, my fingers are somewhat operational but the meat of my hand has swollen to the size of an orange and I'm pretty sure it'll be worse tomorrow. It's not like I use my hands for work or anything, I'm sure it'll be fine. So a device I never wanted and haven't trusted has finally done something that I expected, yet it caught me unawares and did a lot of damage to a hand I use daily. I gave GM customer service a rather unpleasant phone call but once they found out their car had injured me, they said they would have to "call me back." LOL. OK, go get your lawyers. I'll play that game with you. I'd like to find the guy who designed the thing and hold his head right there under the hatch and see how confident he feels in his technology. Our fathers were right. Or maybe we've just gotten too soft that automakers don't even feel that we can be responsible for opening our own trunks anymore. When the lawyers call back, how much should I ask for, anyway? Eleventy billion? A Brazilian?

    My Grandmother and I were lucky enough to ride in a blimp in Los Angeles! She wrote to Goodyear and told them that she had ridden in everything from an open cockpit Jennie to a 747....even a helicopter, but never on the blimp. She wanted to do it before she "cantered up the golden stairs". They wrote her back and told her that they do not give the public flights anymore, but they do what they call a "press flight" and she and a friend could do that. She took me! It was FABULOUS!

    Despite the temperature in my garage of 100 degrees, I finally managed to get my pistons installed into the block and the cylinder block installed onto the crankcase. I laid the cylinder block on it's side so it was easier to install the pistons before moving it to the crankcase. I taped cardboard on the crank journals so I had no chance of scratching a journal while putting these parts together. I first soaked each piston in motor oil so I could lubricate the wrist pin well. Then I installed my new wrist pin buttons prior to using a ring compressor to install the pistons. I held the piston in place and my wife tapped the piston in using a small piece of wood. After we installed each piston, we tied them in place so that we had no danger of the pistons slipping out as we lifted the cylinder block to the crankcase. As my wife slowly lowered the block in place, I guided the connecting rods to their places on the crankshaft. After bolting the block in place, I crawled underneath the motor to take the carboard off the journals and set the rods firmly in place on the journals. I'll come back on a cooler day the use plastic gage to check bearing clearances before final installation of the pistons and rods. For me it was exciting to finally make some progress towards getting my engine back together.

    Remember these? For 1979, this was probably second only to a black Trans Am in terms of maximum cool. Today, finding one that hasn't rotted into the ground is none too easy and this particular pickup has a frame-off restoration and an AACA National First Prize in 2017. These cool little pickups were exempt from a lot of the smog laws of 1979, so the police-spec 360 cubic inch V8 with 225 horsepower is more potent than the V8s found in cars like the Mustang King Cobra, Camaro Z/28, and the aforementioned Trans Am. With 3.55 gears, it's downright quick and the upgraded suspension puts it to good use, although obviously it's no sports car. The bodywork is surely better than new and the brilliant red paint is worlds deeper than original. All the original stripes and decals were accurately reproduced and the wood trim on and in the bed was covered with six coats of urethane and then wet-sanded to make it shine like the paint. The interior has the only options offered: A/C, a tachometer, and bucket seats, and everything works including the AM/FM radio. The 6700 miles showing on the odometer are since the restoration was completed. The engine is highly detailed and runs great, with the only modification being a pair of slightly better-sounding Flowmaster mufflers feeding the chrome stacks (yep, they're functional). It's ultra-clean underneath and sits on the original chrome 5-slot wheels with fat 275/60/15 BFGoodrich radials all around. I don't know that I've ever seen a better one of these. It comes from the estate of my friend who passed away last summer and he only owned the best of the best, regardless of cost. This is a really nice little truck that has become an increasingly popular collector piece. Asking price is $29,900, which is probably 1/3 the cost of the restoration. If you were there, this can't help but put a smile on your face. What a cool little truck!

    My friend just bought this beautiful 29000 mile Reatta. He owns 418 and 419, my car is 422. His other Reatta is a super low mile car as well. It's nice that some of these fine cars are still in like new shape. Both of his cars are red molding with tan pinstripes.

    A test for the Special today. It started out with temps about 77 degrees and ran great! It was about a 30 mile trip on a quiet secondary road to my friends place for a meeting with a group to move our RR collection in preparation for them to take it back to their place in a few weeks. One thing about living in the country is people think you have extra room for things and one of Rick's buddies brought this Packard out to "temporarily" store it. When it came out it was a nice shinny running car but... Not only has sitting out in the weather taken it's toll but the mice have made themselves quite at home... The day otherwise was productive and the next meeting will likely be the final move for the RR. Fired up the Special to head home in the now 96 degree heat and she performed better than I expected. With the top down had to have the floor vents and door vents open to keep cool though.

    Hi! My name is Greg and I live in Alexandria Virginia! Although I do not have a CCCA vehicle (yet!), I'm trying to do as much research and view as many cars as possible before I become the vehicle's next caretaker. It would be great if there was a classic vehicle in my family that has been passed down thru the generations; however, there is not... I drove just over an hour in my modern car (a 2015 Holden SS) to go to this show, my first CCCA meet. At 53, I was definitely among the younger of the owners and interlopers. It would have been great if there was some type of "ambassador" there is show me around or introduce me to a few folks... I did ask one guy that looked official how many cars were there and he said 47. I also asked a few people if they knew Al Becker who I spoke to on the phone, but never met, since he had a beautiful dark green phaeton there, but no luck... He may have been judging. Anyway, I watched a few times as the teams of judges actually did the operations tests and judged the cars. I took many of the same photos you see above. I stopped at the information table/canopy on the way out and they were offering a pretty thick classic car book as a gift if one joined the club that day. The two black unrestored cars definitely appealed to me. The sedan definitely needed new glass, but that would take away from its originality. I'm very glad I went! A big THANK YOU to the hosts!

    I just purchased serial # 900418 to go along with my identical serial 900419 convertible. 418 (pictured in this post) has 29,000 miles and is red/tan/Saddle with red moldings and gold pinstripe. This car is one of four that were driven by an EV1 Exec, and was purchased by Ray Spoth, Buick's North America Marketing and Business Development manager in 1994. From there, it was sold to former Dallas, TX mayor Jack Evans, who then sold the car to Chuck Parry of Syracuse, NY in 1997. Chuck also owned my other identical 1991 convertible, serial 900419, around the same time. Chuck sold this car to a gentleman in 2017 who transported the car to Scottsdale, AZ, where it has been stored and driven less than 1,000 miles. I just purchased the car from that owner, and purchased 900419 from a different owner last year. The thought of having two consecutive serial number '91 convertibles is alone astonishing, however, these two are especially special as they are identical twins, all the way down to the pinstripe and moldings. Looking forward to having "The Twins" out soon for the world to see!

    MODEL 61-CENTURY-TOURING 4 DOOR SEDAN-TRUNK BACK - $5,400.00 or best offer Title Status: Titles are not issued on 1962 or older year model vehicles in Georgia so therefore there is no title for this car. Not from the previous owner or the owner before him. I can not obtain one from the DMV if I tried, they do not issue them, plain and simple. I will provide a Bill of Sale and the tag registration that the Executor of the Estate gave me. This registration does have a Title number on it if that is of any benefit. (Please don't turn this thread into a discussion of titles) History: BCA and Dixie Chapter member Roddy Pearce purchased this Buick from its owner in Ohio in 1997. At that time it was a beautifully restored and excellent driving car. Roddy drove it and showed it at many area events. The car was last registered and I assume driven in 2004. The car was stored in his backyard in a portable garage which eventually deteriorated thereby leaving the car exposed to the elements. Roddy became ill and was unable to care for this and several other low mileage and nice Buicks. Roddy passed away last October leaving all the cars in his back yard. I acquired the car from the estate through an auction. Current Condition: Since purchasing the car I have cleaned the exterior and interior which has allowed me to be able to better assess the cars condition. Exterior: I have been over and under it with a flash light and magnet looking for signs of previous damage and rust repair as well as for any new areas of rust and rust through since it's restoration and later poor storage. In short, while clearly seen in the photos there is obvious areas of paint de-lamination and surface rust, I found no signs of damage repair and only one area the size of a silver dollar having some light rust bubbling. The fenders appear to be straight as well as the sides, doors, hood and trunk. There is some VERY THIN (1/16" thk) body filler on some of the lower fender areas. There is one nickle size dent approx 1/8" deep in the roof. The frame and floors from underneath exhibit no signs of ever having rust through issues and appear to still be solid. The running board braces, metal base, rubber and chrome trim are in excellent condition and should need nothing, even for show. Condition of the glass and chrome should be evident from the pictures, if additional pictures are needed, please ask. Interior: There was mildew and mold areas mostly in the back seat and side arm rests created from water entering the quarter windows. I cleaned this with vinegar and shop vac however it did leave stains. The front seat, front floor mat, firewall and rear carpet does not appear to be hurt any at all and are very nice and presentable. Some stains to lower front and rear door panels and more severe damage to the side arm rests. Headliner has one 3 inch tear in the rear near the window created when some knothead was vacuuming it. The dash and window panels have some surface rust but still retain some woodgraining. Mechanics: I juiced the cylinders with Marvel Mystery Oil and Acetone a couple days after bringing the car home and about 15 days later turned the engine freely by hand. I was told by a friend of Roddy's that the engine was leaking water around the head gasket area. I have not and do not have any intention of starting the engine and would recommend based on this info that the head be removed and checked prior to any cranking. I have not hooked to a battery and therefore know nothing of the working condition of the gauges, clock, radio or other electrical items. In general I believe this to be a VERY SOLID car with great potential for easy restoration back to original condition, a driver or restomod. Included in the sale will be a 320 straight eight block, head, pan and rocker cover which came with the car when I bought it. I will also be offering for sale a set of '38 Century dual side mount fenders that would look great on this car. I have combed the internet looking for comparables for use in pricing the car. There are not many to be found. I did receive this info from Old Cars Report Price Guide from @suchan in the PreWar Forum and feel that this car fits between a #4 and #5. I've always had an affinity with the number "54" so lets start there, the car is offered at $5,400 or best offer. 6: $1320 5: $3960 4: $6600 3 (Driver-Quality): $14850 2: $23100 1: $33000 It's worth noting that the Special values in the guide are exactly the same. Anyone who's shopped for a Century knows that Centurys go for more than Specials. I think it's closer to reality to bump the top three categories up $5K or so. NO. 1: EXCELLENT Restored to current maximum professional standards of quality in every area or perfect original with components operating or appearing as new; a 95-plus point show car that isn’t driven. NO. 2: FINE Well-restored or a combination of superior restoration and excellent original; also, an extremely well-maintained original showing very minimal wear. NO. 3: VERY GOOD Completely operable original or “older restoration” showing wear; also, a good amateur restoration, all presentable and serviceable inside and out. Plus combinations of well-done restoration and good operable components or a partially restored car with all parts necessary to complete and/or valuable NOS parts. NO. 4: GOOD A drivable vehicle needing no or only minor work to be functional; also, a deteriorated restoration or a very poor amateur restoration. All components may need restoration to be “excellent,” but the car is mostly useable “as is.” NO. 5: RESTORABLE Needs complete restoration of body, chassis and interior; may or may not be running, but isn’t weathered, wrecked or stripped to the point of being useful only for parts. NO. 6: PARTS CAR May or may not be running, but is weathered, wrecked and/or stripped to the point of being useful primarily for parts. Please look closely at the following pictures and if SERIOUSLY interested in possible purchase feel free to ask for additional detailed ones. As the tires are probably 20 years old, no tire kickers please. We'll begin with a walkaround In its restored glory back some 20 years ago And Today

    On my drive last night I noticed the horn ring had some rotation to it, and it rattled. So looking at the original wheel I realized the new one did not have these rubber isolators: And being 63 years old, or thereabouts, I had little hope I could get these off in one piece. The steering wheel provider said those isolators were installed before the center ring of the wheel was welded on, so I could try to slice em and peel em off to reuse, or just wrap a few laters of electrical tape in the location on each spoke of the wheel. I wasn't too keen on the electrical tape alternative so I went to the hardware store today and they had some 1/2 and 3/8 diameter vinyl hose. It comes in an oval shape. The 3/8 " was not big enough to get totally around the spoke, and the 1/2 " was too big. But I took a foot of the 1/2 " , figuring I could cut it down to size. After cutting the first isolator, I tried to remove the original isolator so I could fit my new one where it had to be on the wheel. And I was so surprised to find that the original one was still flexible enough to come off without breaking! And, in fact, all three came off without breaking! So I glued them on the new wheel with some silicone adhesive. And when I finished reassembling the movement ands rattle were gone. And then the horn started to act up! It works sometimes, and not others. Looks like I will have to perform the repair Old-Tank outlined to make it reliable.

    Something like this huh. No real harm in this unless its really critical tech info that might be easier to find a year from now in a search. As far as the R12 I have found it to be easier and cheaper to get now than 20-25 years ago. I believe this is because many people hoarded it and after many years they no longer have a use for it as many systems have been converted and/or they no longer have a car requiring R12, or heck, they may have even passed away.

    So liquidated the Fiero as well. That was a little harder as most the interest wondered what ti would take to put it on the road. I guess few understand what Best for parts and hasn't run in atleast 10 years so it's probably seized means. Anyways, 2nd guy showed up in a Fiero, but his was an 84 and after a good look wasn't sure if the stuff he needed would work. Totally understandable. He made me an offer a half hour later when he got home, but i had already made arrangements for the next guy to look at it. That guy the 3rd one, showed up this morning in the exact same 1987 in the same color. His car needed the front fender, door, Nose panel and lower front spoiler right off the bat as all of his had a hole punched in them. He said they are hard to find parts cars for that anyone will part with. I'm thinking to myself, wow you would be a fool to not take it, especially while they are looking at it they keep noting pieces that are better that theirs. Anyways I told them 200 and it's yours. They decided to talk about it, then finally came ot the hosue and told me they would take it. But look that's two cars gone. And these were low value parts cars for more than scrap, so I saved them and some cars will live on while there is still interest on them. Now to go respond to the other 10 people waiting to come look at it. I could have held out , maybe someone would have given me the $250, but it's gone and I'm shed one more weight.

    Here in the Northeast "rust" means there is a hole thru the body. Surface rust is "patina". It's not rust unless you can poke your finger thru it.
