  1. Saturday at our North Texas chapter meeting we were at Pete's place in Leonard, TX. He said his building was originally a Kaiser-Frazer dealership. I don't remember when I last heard that name. But there are a few other things I don't remember too! Kaiser-Frazer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Chuck Bloomberg
  2. There is a very good yard called CTC Auto Ranch CTC Auto Ranch north of Denton, TX on Interstate 35. I hope you can find something closer, but if not I bet these guys have what you want. I bought a trim piece for my 67 LeSabre there.
  3. I remember when I lived at home in late '60's or early '70's my dad gat an excellent mag called Ford Truck Times or something similar. It not only contained promotion on current models but had articles on people who owned their pickups for a long time. Some excellent pictures of classic Ford pickups.
  4. I don't remember how the Skylarks were set up but the LeSabres mostly came with the 340/2 and the two speed automatic. If you ordered the 340/4 it came with the 3 speed (TH400) transmission. Chuck
  5. I have decided not to sell the car at this time. Chuck.
  6. That is a sharp automobile! '70 was one of the years I was considering when I found my '67. I love the looks of this range. Mine needs work before I start posting pictures but stay tuned. Right now I have to build a new garage before I invest any more in the car. It could be a busy year.

  8. Thanks Willis. The more I read, the more I find out that I don't know.
  9. Good suggestion, I'll try the speakers before buying a new radio.
  10. The dash is sort of concave and that is mirrored in the face of the original radio. I'll try to find a rectangular one that is the correct width and then see how to fit it in. It may have to be recessed close to a half inch at the bottom. I just don't want a gap.
  11. I have a Riviera that I am trying to make a decent driver without going broke. The original AM/FM radio doesn't work. I want to find something that will fit physically and sound OK at a reasonable price. I don't know if the original speakers are usable or not. Any suggestions are appreciated. Chuck, BCA 41049
  12. Didn't GM specify to change the air when you rotate the tires every 5000 miles? I seem to remember paying for that! LOL _____________________________ Chuck Bloomberg
  13. When you get the Buick power in it, you might try to replace the GMC logos on front & back with Buick name and Trishield. It could be a design challenge but may turn out to be a one of a kinf that is sharp. Chuck
  14. Thanks for the reply. It says Quadrajet on it and manufactured by Carter, so that could well be the case. I'm sure I will have more questions later. Chuck.
  15. I am getting together a list of things I need for my 67 to make it run right. I have been told the Carter carb is not correct. can someone tell me what I should look for. Chuck This is what it looks like.
  16. I just saw the pictures Chrysler released of their new 200 Convertible. Its an update of the old Sebring line. Its nice to see a new convertible out there, but that one doesen't quite do much for me. I see so much more potential if Buick would bring out a drop top for either the Regal or Lacrosse line. That might convince me to buy one more new car! How about it? Have any of you heard any scuttlebutt or rumors from GM? PS It might be a back door way to get them to build a two door car again! Chuck
  17. When I got my 67 LeSabre from my wife's aunt's house in Houston this title couldn't be found and it hadn't been registered in the last 10 years. In Texas I applied for a lost title replacement. All we did was get the form and get Auntie's signature notarized even though it was in he husband's name who had been dead since 1977. I'm sure it was a little easier because I had the old licence plate and knew the owner's name.
  18. Sorry I didn't think to look for a number or know where to look. When I went back to the store a few days later it was already gone. I have no idea where it may show up next. I think it belongs to some fertilizer or seed company whosw peoducts were being displayed in the garden section of the store.
  19. I ran across a Buick truck with a 1918 Pennsylvania liccense last week used as a display at our local WalMart. I couldn't find anything about it but snapped these pictures You are invited to view cbloomberg's photo album: 2010-09-10 <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top> </TD><TD style="PADDING-LEFT: 0.7em; COLOR: #666" vAlign=top>2010-09-10 Apr 8, 2010 by cbloomberg View Album Play slideshow Contribute photos to this album </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> Message from cbloomberg: 1918 (?)
