  1. During the Dream Cruise, does the BCA have an area along, or just off of Woodward Ave, where club members can park &/or bring chairs and watch the cars go by, etc.?

  3. http://aeclassiccars.com/for-sale/1965-mercury-comet-caliente-convertible-pecan-frost/#prettyPhoto This 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente is being offer by a dealer with an asking price of $34,900. Would appreciate informed comments and opinions as to the condition of this car and any problems it might have. I know it's difficult to make an accurate assessment without having photos of the undercarriage, but the dealer did not post any . . . which might be a red flag itself. But, for this kind of money, I would expect the car to be one of the best on the planet. A fair expectation? Hope to
  4. Gary. I've sent you a Private Message.
  5. Thanks Gary. I appreciate you checking. I tried emailing the contact for the Virginia BCA chapter (figured this one is closest to WV) listed on the BCA website, but my emails keep getting kicked back. The email contact must be out of date. So far, I'm striking out.
  6. g-g-g0, Yes, thanks. I think that may be where I found that image. I have another one from a different angle, but having trouble downloading it. I was able to track the image down to this website: micks51buick's 1951 Buick Roadmaster. But, the trail went cold from there. Would give up a kidney and one of my kids just to have the opportunity to talk to the owner about possibly selling this car to me.
  7. Can anyone please identify the year and model of this Buick? Don't suppose anyone happens to know who's car this is? Thanks. Steve Parmerlee BCA # 38881
  8. 61-63, Good information and appreciate your input. For me, when determining what I should pay for a car, it comes down simply to this. Could I turn around and realistically expect to sell it for the same price? (assumes adequate marketing effort and a reasonable marketing time). For this '67 LeMans, it sounds like your answer would be "no" and I would concur.
  9. The cost:benefit ratio worked for him, he could afford it, everyone went home happy. Isn't that how it always works, at every price point, on every car? No, not really. Let's use your Tempest as an example. Buyer 1 pays $26K for it. When he's done with it, he lists it for sale. Using your figures, let's say he can only get half what he paid for it (ie. $13K). So, he takes a hit of $13K. Actually, if what you say is true and there were several buyers vying for this car, Buyer 1 may actually break even when he goes to sell. Regarding this '67 LeMans convertible, Buyer 1 pays $49K. Earli
  10. Why would the guy who ultimately buys this Lemans be any less intelligent than the guy who bought that Tempest? I covered that in my previous post. My only point is that you, the buyer, are the only one who gets to decide what the right price is and what the right car might be. That's true if you live in a vacuum or until you go to sell it. Or, have it appraised for insurance purposes. Matt, I'm not trying to be argumentative. And, if someone doesn't mind taking a major financial hit when they're done with a car or wants to move onto another, then that's fine. But, before writing that
  11. Matt, I appreciate your input and you make some interesting and thought-provoking points. But, regarding your '65 Tempest, I don't think it's a good comparison to this black '67 LeMans convertible. Why? Because the LeMans in question started life as a V-8 (not an insignificant issue) and it's only slightly modified from stock. Your '65 Tempest was a lowly 6 cylinder post car and therefore at the bottom of the food chain. In its pure stock form, that Tempest was someone's aunt's grocery getter for which there's isn't much of a market regardless of condition. Therefore, pretty much anythin
  12. 64pontiac, Since making my original post, I contacted the dealer and they indicated they have info from PHS indicating it is a real LeMans. Why did I think this car started life as a Tempest? It was just a hunch, that's all. This car just seems way too nice for a LeMans. Someone spent a lot of money in the "renovation" work. Who does that for a LeMans? I know it's a convertible, so that probably answers my question. Just seemed fishy to me. I guess the popularity and collectibility of GTO's has helped "pull up" the desirability of the LeMans. Another thing I find odd about the car is
  13. Helfen, thanks for the reply. Question. Is it not possible to put Lemans gills on a Tempest?
  14. https://m.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=MhaaGSh9Sa8 Would appreciate if someone who's knowledgeable about 1967 Tempest's/LeMans's could spare a few minutes and watch the video link I've provided about a car listed for sale that's being marketed as a LeMans. I'm trying to figure out just what it is. Personally, I think this car started life as a Tempest and has been restored/morphed into a LeMans. I know the difference between a Tempest and a LeMans is somewhat of an issue of semantics. I also know the car is not "correct" (ex. Pontiac spelled out on the rocker panel, aftermarket i
  15. Hello, I'm looking to purchase a 1969 Cutlass S convertible located at a dealer in Houston. Can anyone recommend someone who's qualified to check out the mechanical and chassis components? I'm happy to pay. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks. My email is sparmerlee@gmail.com I've already posted this on the Texas Gulf Coast chapter of the Oldsmobile Club of America. But, wanted to post here also to increase my coverage. Steve Parmerlee, Indiana Buick Club of America #38881 Cadillac LaSalle Club #19126
