  1. Thanks for all your comments, you have all been very helpful. I have decided to fix him up , just need to find an engine for him now. I have been looking at a Buick 231 3.8L Odd Fire, without smog, remanufactured engine from S&S Rebuilt Engines it is about $1400 with a 7 year/70,000 mile warranty. Can anyone tell me what the without smog part means? S&S Rebuilt Engines >> Remanufactured Car N' Marine Engines >> 7-Yr Warranty Has anyone had any experience with this company, or can anyone let me know a good place to get an engine with a good warranty on it. Thanks again Kerry
  2. Sorry about the lack of information. He is a 4 door sedan and the body work is not in mint condition but very good condition. Here are a couple of photos. Thanks for you advice I will check Ebay. Kerry California
  3. Hi I do not know much about cars but love my 1977 Buick Skylark. I have now however been told that he needs an engine rebuild or a new engine, and I'm wondering weather I can justify spending the money on him. He has done 87,000 miles, his body work is in mint condition and the interior is good. The mechanic says his transmission and rear bearings look good and does not see any other problems other than the engine. I have no idea how much he is worth and wondered if anyone could tell me roughly how much I would be able to sell him for if he had a rebuilt or new engine (however I have been told a new engine could be hard to find as he has a V6 odd-fire engine which is harder to find than a even-fire engine and the two are not interchangeable). I have no intention of selling him but do not want to spend $3500 on the car if he is worth less than this. I would really appreciate someones help on this as I just don't know what to do. Thanks
