  1. I found it on Craigslist with a price and some different photos: https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/d/victorville-buick-1949-road-master/6808049662.html That's on my 'someday I will one one' list. Unfortunately, not the right time for me. Looks like there's a '59 DeSoto under the tarp in the background.
  2. If you're ever in Chicago, you can stop by and see the old Pines factory at Division St. and Cicero Avenue. The facade of the building has terra cotta radiators over the windows. After Pines vacated, the building became the home of Leaf Candy Co.
  3. It reminds me of Ralph Malph's ride from Happy Days. I dig it!
  4. What a beaut! I love how the grille bars radiate up from the point at the bottom.
  5. I have brand-new rear cables which I just (partially) installed. The equalizer is completely missing, so I have no way of attaching the front cable with the rear. Thanks!
  6. Looking for a parking brake equalizer for a '41 Special. My cables were/are inop (and strapped to the torque tube to keep them out of the way), so I'm not sure if I need one that's specific to this year/model or if it's interchangeable with something else. Thanks!
  7. The second image of the Woods catalog in post #1 was taken near the Stephen Douglas Tomb in Chicago. That's it in the background.
  8. I'm interested to see how Ford will retool the Torrence Avenue plant here in Chicago - the local paper said that once the plant ends Taurus/Police Interceptor sedan production, it'll start making the 2020 Lincoln Navigator, with anticipated staffing to remain at the current levels (4,000 workers). Also, they said that the stamping plant in the south suburbs will feel 'no immediate effect' on its 1,200 workers.
  9. Question: does the support for the visor get in the way of the antenna's down position?
  10. This one's on my 'bucket list' but I don't have the available capital nor space unless I get rid of my '41, which ain't happening. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/buick/roadmaster/2082039.html?refer=news
  11. Hello all, I understand that the rubber mat for the front floor is what's supposed to be there, but I am not a fan of it (plus mine is hard and deteriorating). Is there a good place to get a carpet piece for just the front floor, or would I be stuck purchasing front and rear pieces? Thanks!
  12. Thanks for this! I've got 'decorative' fog lamps on my '41 that I'm contemplating making functional again (they're Guide, but not even wired to anything, so what's the point?), and even though it's far down on the list of things I need to address, your explanation will be immensely helpful when I get there.
