  1. If I see one more super fine boat tail up for sale (by owner) I'm gonna lose it! '72 w/buckets! https://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/d/sacramento-1972-buick-riviera-boattail/7056854751.html
  2. '66 Dual Quad w/ Plum Buckets! https://nh.craigslist.org/ctd/d/middlebury-1966-buick-riviera-gran/7052061528.html Fantastic
  3. Triple Black - non bucket BT: https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/cto/d/union-grove-1973-buick-riviera-boattail/7050532164.html (Not mine)
  4. I like these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-Buick-Riviera-Gran-Sport-1-27-SCALE/274212773343 Quite affordable with 6 colors to choose from! Low maintenance (Not mine)
  5. Ditto. On my bucket list. ‘70 is the best year. Try finding one with a floor console in good shape. Seems more rare than the Rivs. And a ‘64 Impala was my first car. Red on black.
  6. I'll bet a SPAX pan head would be a good fastener for a more permanent affix. With a fender washer and nylon spacer under the head. Drill a pilot hole in the backside of the rubber - the same diameter as the screw minor diameter. This permits the screw without bulging the strip. A dab of petrolatum to ease the cut. Makes me want a boat tail again! Who wants to trade?
  7. Road Shark, Please share your part source? I gotta do the same some day. Thanks
  8. An original radiator has a cold fill stamp level about 5 inches below the full neck. This space is allotted for the thermal expansion of the coolant. The bottles were added later once the environmentalists caught the overfilled poison being dumped on the public roads.
  9. Curious - Is anyone using lead or lead-like additives to their late '60's engines? Specifically post Nail Head era?
  10. Geez I thought I did that. And it’s been sitting for a month put together with fluid before I cranked her up today. How many cycles of wheel turn must I go through? I ve done several Thanks
  11. OK - so I removed my perfectly functional '67 steering pump to re-paint it. Two hoses, nuts and bolts. Simple - right? The two hoses cant be mixed as one is flanged / nut and the other friction fit with clamp. Put her back on, fill 'er up to the fill line and now she sprays oil out of the cap (intermittently) like a geyser. What the heck???? Death to the perfectionist. Thanks and happy new year.

    A new era!

    2020 ushers in the '70's Generation into the half century old collectible market. Hemmings predicted the '70's cars would gain value: https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2019/12/31/five-collector-car-hobby-predictions-for-2020-plus-a-few-extras/ Congrats to all us '70's owners and good luck to would be owners! Bring it on - 2020! Not mine but check this sweetie -
  13. Man - if that car was local. Never thought I'd like the rear lens bezels blacked out but for some reason they look like they belong on this combo. Bumper tucked a bit also? This looks like a EXACT copy of a car that was for sale 3 years ago up by Illinois. I called that owner but I just couldnt trust the paint ( and road salt) history. Same mirrors too! Car was HALF the price, then.
  14. Scale Auto has an interesting rap about it: http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/general_discussion/f/3/t/56120.aspx Happy New Year all
  15. Pittsburgh steel for a high rise, a posi rear, glass and... the wheel covers!!
