  1. Great day for a ride in a Buick. I took the Roadmaster out for a five hour cruise in nearby CT and RI. It was a beautiful day in the mid 70's. I did not see any other Buicks on the road today, but was invited to see a 1939 LaSalle and a 1965 Cadillac. While at the gas station a 1959 Edsel pulled in for gas as well. It was a nice 4 door Corsair.
  2. Ok, back to driving after several months of waiting for work to get done on the Roadmaster. Today I took a drive from home to Thompson, CT to Woodstock to Pomfret to Hampton to Brooklyn and Scotland, Canterbury, Sterling Oneco, and back to RI on back roads. It was a beautiful day in the low 70's. Made several stops for pictures. Saw several cars from the 50's and 60's, but still NO CLASSICS.
  3. Kev I am unaware of any specific magazine for those specific years of Buicks. Your best bet is to join the Buick Club of America (former member) and you will get a monthly publication called the "Buick Bugle". Although it is open to all years of Buick's I have often saw articles on 1938-1941 Buick's. That would be your best bet.
  4. Thanks for all of the input so far. Seems like I will need to figure out a way to drive some of the cars first.
  5. At least the instrument panel is good looking.
  6. Not even dusted off? Why? Is the dirt and dust that valuable?
  7. FYI. The Arundel Auto Museum, ME where i saw this car had about 12 woodies. Worth a visit.
  8. Hello Tom, The sign on the floor did not have the information you provided. Did this car have a different engine than other Nash vehicles this year? Looks like a OHV was in the car.
  9. Just had a nice drive through RI and nearby CT. Stopped in Woodstock CT to have my lunch and watch an old time baseball game. Actually I stayed for two. It took a while to realize how the fly outs were granted. While there some people came over to see my car. One of the women said her grandfather had a 1938 Buick. It was a beautiful day in New England for a drive.
  10. Hello Tom, Here is the info on the 1940 Cadillac. It was all original.
  11. I am a pre-war classic car guy. At car shows I rarely ever look at post-war cars. I came across this 1948 Nash Woodie at a car museum. I am in love with it. I am not sure what caught me, but I would love to have this in my garage. The red color caught my attention, but the wood craftsmanship was beautiful. I must admit I like the plaid interior as well. It works for this car for some reason. I am not sure how well a 6 cylinder engine powers this car. I would have thought an 8 was used. If anyone has more information or experience with this or a similar model, I would love to hear your thoughts. Enjoy the pictures!
  12. When visiting Kennebunkport, Maine this week, I discovered the Arundel Car Museum. It has a nice collection of cars on display with varying themes and various stages of restoration and originality. There were about 60 cars on display. The collection according to the docent is currently 174. The young docent I met was very informative of the cars in the collection. A definite car guy with a great deal of energy and love for the cars. It was a real pleasure to talk with him and the other staff there. A definite stop if you are in the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Maine area. Not a stuffy car museum in any way. Oh yea. I forgot to take a picture of the Tucker in the collection. There are also interesting artifacts including license plates and Tucker parts.
  13. Looks like someone will be getting a great car. Great drivers.
  14. The tan and blue (gray) bedford cord looks great. I have the same under my seat cover. I have a question regarding the medallion in the steering wheel. looks like a later medallion than 1941. Also, are those correct hub caps for a non-US model? I am sure there are many differences.
