  1. My favorite is when asked about the car and I go over that it's all original etc. and tell them it's 1941. Then when they ask "are you the original owner?" My answer... "yes and I'll be 122 this November " at least I get a smile.
  2. Thanks Gentelmen for the info. Prio oil was also 15 - 40 wt. can't remember the brand right now.
  3. Just changed my oil to Rotilla 15-40 wt.oil ( states for Diesel engines) in my 1941 Buick 248 CI straight eight. Original with 36,000 miles. I didn't see any Rotilla this wt. for gasoline engines. As it turns out my oil pressure is running like 58 almost to maximum full gauge reading at highway speed. I think prior to this oil change it would be around 48 to 50. Is this harmful to my engine? I've read in the past here about Rotilla users being pleased but maybe they're using for gas engines. Nothing unusual seems to be going on that I can hear or see. Your thoughts? Way
  4. Wow. John now that's a deal🙂 Thank you
  5. Just received my Vehicle registration renewal notice today from the state of California.. to renew my 1941 Buick Super the total is $187.00 . $40 of that is for special plate fee. There are no other state fee such as annual inspection or smog certification requirement. (car older than 20 years smog cert. is not required). I'm just curious what other collector car owners around the country and out of the U.S. for that matter are paying to keep their cars registered.
  6. Here's mine. 1941 Buick Super . 23,800 original miles at purchase July 2011 Mankato MN. I'm the third owner. A Minnesota car from new til 2011. (NO RUST ☺️) current mileage 35,430. had her out today for a 30 mile run. I've enjoyed seeing you guys with your cars. Thanks Victoria Lynn. Great idea.☺️ Wayne Fresno, Ca.
  7. I've been using one for the 8 plus years I've owned the car. I do shake the duster a few times while dusting the car. I have washed this Buick only ONCE since it rolled out off the delivery truck almost nine years ago. So I'd say "works for me" Sorry these photos are so large. Not sure what I did. ?
  8. Of course we all know to be careful when buying i.e. cars on CL. example a friend of a friend just last week purchased what he thought was a good deal from a private party on Sacarmento Craigslist. $14,000. When he went DMV to register the car he found out it had been rented from a rental company. All normal documents provided by seller were bogus Title, his I.D etc. all fake. Police say no recourse because he can not be traced. The buyer is OUT $14,000. I Guess transactions need to be done at the bank AND the DMV to be safe. just saying.. it can happen.
  9. I just have to join in here. My very first purchase on credit was two Sears tires when I was in the Navy and home ported at Long Beach Ca. 1968 for my 1960 Olds. only could afford two. never forget Sears for allowing me to start credit. Can't remember the price but paid them out on time. "those were the days"
  10. Thanks! for some reason I didn't find the lower priced trucks. Duh.... I'll pass them on. Wayne
  11. Not me but a friend is looking for a Chevy pickup 1951- 1953. I think up to low $20,000's. Of course the amount he'll spend depends on condition and location of truck. Western U.S. best but open to finds. Thanks Wayne
  12. I have four used Coker 760 X 15" Bias ply tires. (3" white wall) approx. 7.5 years old. good tread. Used approximately 9,000 miles on my '41 Buick. Could be used as replacements for casual driving or spare. (Require tubes) Any value? any Interest? Just asking. Wayne 41 Buick
  13. Thank you all for the feed back. I am ordering radials. (Diamondbacks Matt🙂) Yes these will be for my only collector car the '41 Buick Super 51
  14. Looking for some feed back. re: Is it time to replace my 8.5 year old Bias Ply tires. Treads very good. Sidewalls appear to be good with no obvious cracking. Tires have been on the road 10K miles. Should I replace these because of age? I am thinking of radials next because I don't trust tube tires now since one went bad on me a 60 mph. Appreciate any thoughts. Wayne 1941 Buick
  15. Looking good Neil.? I'd like to see it in black and white for that "real vintage" look?
