  1. Beautiful car! All you need to dress it up is a set of "elephant ears". I think I might go out in my 71C with my wife today....
  2. Agreed there MAY be good parts if they are in good condition. Yes the manifold is worth something if not cracked. What I am saying is unless that was my great grandfather's car It is a money pit. IMHO.
  3. Boy that looks like a lot of work to me. It should be free, plus $ to move it.
  4. Congratulations on your 41 Buick. They are great cars. If your engine is painted red, the correct name is Dante Red. I have purchased it in the past from Bill Hirsch. Try Bob's Automobilia in CA. They might have it as well. I purchased my decals from Bob's Automobilia. I liked theirs because they were offering the transfer type instead of the standard decal.
  5. Another great day for a ride. This was ride #2 for Teddy. He relaxed the whole ride with Bubba in the backseat. They also enjoyed the lunch we had on the common in Woodstock, CT. We were disappointed that the ice cream shoppe was not open yet! Today we saw one antique car and three hot rods.
  6. I have seat belts in both of my 1941 Buick's. In an attempt to keep the pets safe I have purchased the seat belt safety clips. The issue is the fact that they only work on newer seat belts. Does anyone have a solution they could share? Thanks.
  7. "Harlem Nights" with Eddy Murphy. Too many cars to mention them all. All in the 1930's like Packard, Pierce Arrow, Buick, Chrysler, Chevrolet, etc.
  8. Beautiful day here in the island. First day out for the 41 Special this year. The snow has finally left. We went out for a picnic and a ride around the reservoir with the boys. This was 6 month old Teddy's first ride in an antique. I think he had a great time. I cannot believe we did not see another antique on the road.
  9. As an owner of a 41 Special and 41 Roadmaster, I would go with the Roadmaster. The bigger engine makes a big difference in enjoyment.
  10. Just my two cents, but AACA Hershey is in October. I know a lot of us go there. Not sure if another October event would be well attended. As far as bringing kids to the events, I have always brought my daughter and a friend or her cousins to the meets. Don't discount the fact that families do come to the meets.
  11. Maybe they used the money from the hail damage to paint the car instead of fixing the damage?
  12. I had my clock repaired for my 1941 Buick by someone recommended in this forum. It was guaranteed for one year. guess what? It lasted only 14 months. I guess I will need to rely on my phone instead.. Good luck.
  13. Sadly no real driving this weekend. My daughter and I winterized the cars for their Winter sleep. Hoping for very early Spring! I am feeling withdrawals already!
  14. My final mileage reading for 2020 is 1,424 trouble free touring miles. Not bad for a 79 year old car. My goal for 2021 will be 2021. Can't wait to start.
  15. We love driving to Woodstock, CT as well. Nice place for a picnic.
  16. What could be better, a Packard and a train in the Fall.....
  17. A great day for a drive today. Weather was warm i the low 70's. Probably the last nice day for a ride in the convertible. Drove around the reservoir. The water levels were low. The city people need to conserve better than they are. I have never seen levels this low. We picked up some lunch and had a nice picnic.
  18. This picture this was taken in 1926 in Palm Beach. The owner of the car owned Pierce Arrow's, but this was his winter car when he went to Florida for the winter. Thanks for any help.
  19. Doesn't look like we will be out driving this weekend. This snow is too early!
  20. Took out the model 41 for a picnic with my wife and dog. Nice crisp day for a fall ride.
  21. Went out for two rides today. In the morning I drove the Roadmaster about 25 miles and after lunch took out the Special for a ride around the reservoir. Yes the dog was on the second ride as always. Saw more than 30 antiques on my rides today leaf peeping. That brought a smile to my face 😃 Hope you are all out there enjoying your cars too!
  22. I took both 41's out today. Beautiful fall day. Went to visit my father, grandparents and great grandparents. Then the dog guilted me to giving him a ride around the Scituate Reservoir.
  23. Try Bob’s Automobilia in CA or CARS(old Buick parts) they may have what you need.
