  1. Can you believe shes over 22G?! Update: She went for $23,400 in todays market. Crazy https://www.ebay.com/itm/1973-Buick-Riviera-1973-Buick-Riviera-GS-Stage-1-455-Survivor-NO-RESERVE/114255555336?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D86997700bcdb45d99ea330cfebc7f5bf%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D114255555336%26itm%3D114255555336%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A163f225c-b33b-11ea-a813-74dbd18052ad|parentrq%3Ad39592d31720a16d1445569afff461e8|iid%3A1
  2. But the ethanol free gas near me is 87 Octane. I cant put that pee in my tank! Where do you guys get hi-octane ethanol free gas??? The nearest jet-fighter air base?
  3. Time slips by and if you are like me, my Riviera doesn't get driven much at all. I have Sta-bil in my tank but I believe the gasoline (or todays pumped corn cat piss) is well over a year old. I see on the 'net this is alleged as a very bad thing to let happen. I have nightmares of gummed up lines and carb. What are your thoughts? Should I drain the tank and lines immediately? Thanks
  4. This may help a bit but it’s been years since I’ve done it and my liver was a washed as well. I can’t recall each step BUT I do remember using the end of a thick broom handle horizontally thru the sheet metal to support (or arrest) the glass while powering the motor up and down until holes would align. It took me 2 days. I felt like I deserved the Purple Heart. Wish I had more info to give you. Wear gloves. Best of luck.
  5. Om my, thats sad news. I didnt know him but perhaps we can send the family a card. Please let me know if you have any obituary info. Or city and state - I can try to look it up. Perhaps members that know of him can chime in on memories I can add? PM me. Thanks
  6. Just stumbled across what seems to be an incredible deal? A NOS Grill for only 40 clams. (Not mine) https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-OEM-Buick-Riviera-Chrome-Radiator-Grille-1986-88/233250715154?fits=Model%3ARiviera|Make%3ABuick&epid=605495205&hash=item364ed37612:g:qZAAAOSwmdteLvzY

  8. Based on this recent past thread, he may have to have it rebuilt. Unobtainium. 😕 https://forums.aaca.org/topic/342184-power-steering-pressure-line-1968
  9. WOW That cars a steal if theres no rust! If it were closer I'd be checking her out! Is it becoming a buyers market???
  10. Well, it was a low optioned vehicle. Except for the rare cloth seats. She probably inherited it then flipped it quick for the cash, I'll bet.
  11. 'If it moves, salute it. If it doesn't move, pick it up. If you can't pick it up, paint it.' (Or polish it!)
  12. Thanks JZ I decided to dig out a decade old can of Mothers polish and elbow grease. Whats the E and F represent? Time to fill up on this cheap gas, eh?
  13. Happy Summer! My gas cap is lookin a bit rough. Not sure I have the right one now that I see this new one on ebay. Is the "S" for Stant? Can someone help as to whats correct for '67? Thank you Mine: ebay:

    BUMP Still up for grabs. I just got a re-chrome quote today and is as follows: "Paul, Thank you for the inquiry and picture. The grill runs in the $1500.00 to $2000.00 price range plus a 6% metals fee, sales tax and any return shipping. We do ask for a 50% (Cash or check only) deposit in order to begin work on the job. Turnaround time is approximately 10 to 12 weeks. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me. Kind Regards, Shanon Rufo Spacecoast Plating 975 Aurora Rd. Melbourne, FL 32935 321-254-2880" This is why I went for my NOS replacement. $$$$$$$$

    Carpet Dye.

    My carpet is not stiff or "crunchy" with the dupli-color. Regular RIT is your dads tie-dye. Regular RIT only soaks in to natural fibers. If you are going to use RIT get the one for man-made products. This stuff you usually have to order 'cause it ain't on most shelves.

    I know, right? We are a niche within a niche. Cant give this stuff away. Probably a hundred clams to ship after plywood crating. I don’t know how else to pack it. I’ll go to Home Depot and see what s around....

    So, I tried giving this away in the past and nobody wanted it. I'm about to toss it. No cracks. It does have some chrome pits from road rock. Last chance. You pick up or pay for shipping. (Ocala, Florida) Thanks
  20. Oooops. There are both sizes out there. Just swap the center caps. I paid more for my set. Mint ones are very rare.
  21. Mr. Raul There seems to be a missing shaft from your handle which are available but maybe the shafts need trimming? The switch clips may be found in salvage yards out west. Heres a pic of mine. Just type in PO2 for your search for caps. Theres an NOS base set on sale now for a bargain! $699. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-72-gm-Chevy-nos-camaro-chevelle-nova-impala-hub-caps-ss-z28-po2-turbine/114099019707?hash=item1a90d4dfbb:g:RDIAAOSw9SVeOeYS
