  1. Thanks for the heads up. I am partial to the silver cars...they are few and far between. I found one at a dealer in PA marked down by about 20% putting it just a little bit above those used cars. It is certainly in the back of my mind...much to my wife’s chagrin. I have been lucky enough to live most most of my life in the Shenandoah Valley. Would be interested in seeing photos of your 60 Electra some time.
  2. I own an Enclave and have generally been happy with it. However, I plan to go back to sedans when I make my next purchase. Would have probably already bought a Regal or Tourx if they had a V6. And the MSRP on a new GS is $45K!
  3. I guess it means that I will be shifting away from Buick in the not too distant future for my primary means of transportation for the first time since I began driving. Eventually good low mileage Buick cars will become harder to find used. We moved from Buick for my wife when we decided to go the minivan route for the family vehicle many years ago.
  4. I will be there hunting on Friday.
  5. Good catch! I didn't end up going through all the photos.
  6. Not mine, just sharing in case someone finds this interesting. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/ctd/d/pratts-1969-buick-electra-owner/6966665551.html 1969 Buick Electra 225 4 door hard top. One owner 13048 original miles always garage kept. Car is like new ever were. Previous owners family said the car has never seen rain. Bought new in Manassas, VA at the Buick dealer ship April 30 1969. All paper work when new is in the glove box. Car must be seen in person pictures does not do it justice. It's like driving a new car runs out great. Perfect for Sunday cruising and local car shows. It's sure to be a hit at car shows in the original class. $16500. Call for more details. 540-672-7907.
  7. Thanks. I have found a listing for the just sensor that says it fits 95. Although I see just the sensor for 97 as well. They are about $20-$40 a piece or $100 each for the hub with sensor.
  8. Thinking of going to check out a low mileage 95 Riviera from a local Craigslist post. The post notes that the ABS light is on and just needs a “sensor”. I am assuming this is a wheel speed sensor. Any experience replacing these? Does the hub have to be replaced as well? I have access to a scanner that should read any ABS codes as well and would give me a better idea what the issue is when I get there. Trying to get an idea how much to take off on price to deal with this issue. Thanks
  9. Similar situation to replacing a basic headlight on my 2013 Enclave. Look up in the owner’s manual and it says to take to dealer. You have to basically remove the front wheel well liner to even get your hand up to the headlight area. Luckily Amazon has those black plastic trim clips for fairly inexpensive since they never really go back the same.
  10. I had a shipper come to the house today to pick up a car I had sold. While helping get it loaded up, couldn’t help but notice his other cargo. Interesting ornaments around the window. He said it was headed to Germany.
  11. Called and made my reservation. Because it is still so far out, I had to push 2 at prompt to reach front desk. Otherwise they send new reservations to a centralized place and they won’t book it yet.
  12. Anyone happen to know the price that was asked for the blue 68 or 69 there was a phot of on the door into the vendor area? I thought I snapped a photo, but didn’t save apparently. I think it was a low mileage car. Thanks
