    Hi I'm new here at the Model A Forum recently coming over from the Buick Forum. I recently had a 1950 Buick Special that I sold and was able to purchase the vehicle I've always wanted, a 1930 Ford Model A pickup. I've attached some pictures and hope this forum is as good as the Buick one, as there's some great people on here Scott
  5. It is with some sadness that I watched my 1950 Buick being loaded onto a transporter to be trucked down to North Carolina where it will be in the care of very nice 77 year old man who is a big Buick fan. I wanted to take a moment and say I could not have done the things I did with my Buick without the help and support of the people on this forum. There are so many great people here and such a wealth of knowledge it is incredible. Everyone here is always willing to lend a hand to help solve a problem or share a great piece of information and I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you all very much for your help and friendship over the past few years. You guys are the greatest! I'll stop by from time to time, but am buying a 1930 Model A Ford pickup and probably won't be on the Buick boards much anymore. Thanks again guys you are good people.
  6. The car is heading to North Carolina where it will be owned by a very nice 77 year old gentleman whose first car was a '50 Buick. Going to a good home and I'm very happy about that!

  13. Mike, Beautiful car!! Welcome! I have a 50 Buick too. Love it! Great car, great ride!! Lots of people here to help out with anything you need regarding Buicks.
  14. I had the radio in my 1950 repaired by Alan Kriss. Great job, reasonable and very knowledgeable. You'll find a lot of positive things about him on this board. I would suggest contacting him. Anyone interested in contacting Alan, here is his information: Alan Kriss 416 Norris Brook Rd Middlebury Center, PA 16935-9654 570-376-3952
  15. Ben, Will these fit a 50 Buick Special? Do you have the front and rear bumper too or just the teeth and light housings? Do you also have the mustache bar? I'm in New York State but am interested. Scott
  16. My dad owned Buick's over the years, but I have to say that until I bought my 1950, started working on her, researching the car, the company, the history I never really had a real affinity for them. Once I joined this forum and began to get to know other Buick owners and become part of the community of fellow Buick lovers I was hooked. The biggest thing that made me a Buick fan was getting behind the wheel of that big 1950 Buick and cruising down the highway. It brought back memories of a simpler, more relaxed time and made me love the car all the more!
  17. I tend to agree with Brian. Whenever I'm at a car show with my 4 door 1950 Buick Deluxe Tourback Sedan people always come up and remark about how the car evokes memories when they were young people riding in the back of their parents car, or how they learned to drive on a car like mine that belonged to their parents. It seems we all have fond memories of some type regarding riding in our parents vehicles while growing up. Whether it be those long torturous trips with no air conditioning, having to sit in the way back of the station wagon. The reality is most American kids grew up in four door cars or station wagons and for whatever reason they take us back to a more innocent time and place in our life. I think there are people who love two door hot rods because they're cool and fast and represent the freedom from their parents restraints as they were growing up. I see my 1950 4-door as an example of American dominance in the automotive industry. I see it as a reflection of the freedom of the open road. I see it as more innocent time in our country. I see it as big, beautiful, machine that floats down the road. She may not be fast, but she sure is comfortable. It's like driving a couch! Sure people may walk past my car at a car show and glance at it on their way to the hot rod section, but I'm always smitten when I see someone staring at that big buck tooth grill and a smile comes over their face and they're magically transported back in time to a memory that makes them almost childlike. Then they stop, relate their recollection about their experience or experiences they had with my car, and walk away with a smile. In conclusion, I love the big, old, four door boats!!
  18. I had my 1950 Special Deluxe Tourback Sedan model 41D out for a ride today and she gets my vote!!
  19. Was wondering if anyone has had their car 'professionally' appraised and if it's worth the money. I see ads in Hemmings etc and wonder if it's worth having your car appraised even if you're not planning on selling it. Also, I didn't see any listed int he upstate New York area. Any input?
  20. I think there's something to be said for having the money to go out and buy a perfectly restored car, but most of us (me included) don't have that kind of bank account. For me, buying the car, discovering what needed to be done, and working on it step by step gave me a great sense of accomplishment and my car certainly gave me a life lesson and taught me patience which I admit is something I lack. And at the end of the day, you can see what you've done not just what you bought. Just my two cents...
  21. I got mine for my 1950 from Kanter's Kanter Auto Products - Classic Antique Auto Restoration Parts good folks to do business with
  22. I was reading an article about some of the best Buick's of all time and wondered what the actual owners think. What is your favorite or most desired Buick if you were just getting into car collecting and why?
