  1. I started my 90 Reatta Conv for the first time in a while inspired by this forum string, but I didn't drive it. The fuel pressure seems ok and the car seems to be doing well, but the first picture is a clue as to why I'm not driving it out in a minute.
  2. THIS AD HAS EXPIRED I almost bought this car and just decided to pass over the past few minutes. It could be a great deal for someone out there. I have not inspected the car in person, but I do have a few details if needed. I doubt the car will be for sale very long. The low mileage had me running the numbers on a 1700+ mile journey which is partially responsible for me rejecting the car. I'll paste the text and you can follow the link if it's still up for a couple pictures: 1990 Buick Reatta Convertible - $7000 "1990 Buick Convertible. This car has under 36,000 miles on it and has been kept in a garage and not driven in the winter. It is one of a very limited number of convertible made in the Reatta. Original owner was in Michigan and then bought and kept by my father in-law who oversaw the project for GM. Only serious inquiries only and please no solicitations."
  3. Congratulations! It looks like new and almost inspires me to get mine wife says, "Almost?!?!" I better get cleaning.
  4. Btw, this one went empty. I'll post again for a possible trip in December.
  5. I of 7. Haven't looked carefully enough to see if I can edit the subject.
  6. This is interesting as another potential pile of Reattas: Another one: The sat image shows a nice bunch of cars there and even what appear to be school buses holding parts. Could be a salvage yard of some sort, but I have seen private ones like that many many times.
  7. Very interesting one. It could be hard to track down if the seller isn't monitoring their ads. They posted another ad without details in another section:
  8. I've been watching this one for a while as a possible driver, but hard to say if it's sold because sometimes people don't take down their ad. It's probably very clean.
  9. That's cool! I know the humidity there isn't much more than here in Santa Fe. We dipped to 4% at times back in June and my spray paint jobs dried in a minute or less.
  10. Salvage yard cars in CO are remarkably clean imo although that definition can vary. They historically haven't used a lot of CaCl2 on their roads, but probably started to use more of it over the years. Cars in the cities will fare worse. I can sometimes put 700 mi on a car in one day so the mileage isn't as much a factor to me. It gets more interesting...this seller seems to have several more besides the blue one seen over the conv, but in different locations maybe. Those two are in a double deep garage. Per some simple research the owner, Chris, likely has a 1928 Durant 8-80 chassis in his stable. Maybe he's on the forums someplace. One thing is for certain. If it had been kept outside instead of on those casters in a garage, it would be in far worse shape.
  11. I apologize if this was posted before...seems like a potential driver for someone. Some years back I would have been driving up there, but my white Reatta Conv is also sitting on some casters in the back of the garage!
  12. We'll be pulling an open 18' car hauler from Watertown WI to Santa Fe NM at the end of July If interested in sharing costs to haul your medium sized car or ? please let me know by calling me (area code five zero five) 49O.thirty eight sixty eight. You may also be able to use the trailer yourself depending on the circumstances, references etc. as long as it's delivered to a reasonable distance from Santa Fe. Thanks, Joel
  13. Thanks, I just started looking. My timetable is long so the more info I get on what's out there the better.
  14. I agree. I was just noticing a pile of LeMans models and GTOs on a few searches.
