  1. Ok guys....settle your dispute elsewhere please. @JohnD1956
  2. Primary fuel filter replaced. Cut the old one open, cruddy inside so definitely needed replacing. The exhaust leak was where a nut fell off the flange at the donut gasket. Of course this was on the side with the o2 sensor, so may have been the reason for stumbling? Car has a photo shoot tomorrow. This weekend I'll start moving the fuel pump.

  4. Looks like a nice car to me for the money. My 57 special is an aftermarket interior orphan with incorrect colors also. Drives the same.

My Buick gets TONS of attention at local cruise-ins and shows, even getting my 1st award.... But to so many buick guys it's an abomination. It's really ALL personal taste... Cause when ya die, no one cares what color car you drove.

  7. Put 400 miles on this weekend. By the time I got home I have an exhaust leak and a stumble.... Ugh. Hoping the stumble is just the primary fuel filter (was on the car when I got it). I'll replace it when I do the fuel lines and move the pump in the coming weeks. *fingers crossed*

  12. Yikes. Too rich for my blood for a non runner full rehab project.
  13. Looks like there's a local buyer about to snap this one up.

  16. No title though so harder sell here in NC.
  17. Well F#!$@! Heres a nice little century two door. My money is tied up on a 39 at the moment. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2525571274/permalink/10158502488321275/
