  1. This week. Good hunting and selling to those who are going.
  2. I got one of these in the mail a few weeks back. Very nice quality and finish. Will look great on car when completed.
  3. You may try 1933buickregistry.com paul rickman 231-357-3009
  4. A contact I made last year for prewar Buick parts was David 763-427-3460
  5. Its been a month since my last post and there doesn't seem to be much action going on in this forum. Hopefully that means everyone is staying busy in their daily lives or too busy working on and driving their Lincolns. Let's see if we can get any participation here....what are you doing with your Lincoln? Driving? Working on it? Staring at it in the garage? As for me, I'm restoring a 33KA and expected to complete it this year.
  6. Steve, Thanks. For now I have opted to remove the spotlight and will continue on with the restoration. If Im able to find the proper documentation for this light at a later time, I can redrill the a-pillar and reinstall the restored light. Thanks to those that commented.
  7. Neat car, but there is a difference between an "all original" car and a car with a repaint and rebuilt engine.
  8. This seems to be a great looking car at a steal of a price. Am I the only one that thinks this may be a scam?
  9. Thanks for chiming in. My intention isn't to kick a hornet's nest, but just gather information. While I'm rather new to AACA, about 5 years or so, I've built a fair share of cars that have been shown and judged, I've been a judge a time or two. I do what I can to promote the hobby. Heck, I'm an officer of the local chapter. I'm truthfully past the part of my life where I felt a trophy was the only way to prove a car was built to someones liking. Cars are a reflection of the person and shouldn't be built for acceptance. If we think about it, some people invest tens or hundreds of t
  10. My thought on "not so old" would be anything 80s and newer
  11. Unlike some, I can appreciate the work to build this car, especially getting to play with a hemi in a car like this. I've had my hand in a few of these builds in the past. I'm looking towards the other end of the spectrum with my original post, though. The upper shows where the judging goes beyond the shock factor.
  12. AAAAGGGGGHHHHHHH...... Your my new friend! HAHAHAHA I was wondering if I could get a basic question answered and you've done it. Thanks. I've got a car in the works that, according to an expert has a wiper motor that is unobtainable, not repairable, etc. I was wondering the pains I was going to have to go through on laying out and machining a wiper motor to keep from loosing a few points due to operation. The spotlight would be difficult to verify as factory vs. dealer, even though it was in place when new.
  13. I know not everyone is too concerned with what awards your car may or may not receive, so this may not be a post that everyone favors. If you have meticulously maintained/restored your car to the highest standards and have put your car onto the show field, let me know your thoughts and answer a few questions for me. First off, have you had your car judged (AACA/CCCA or equivalent)? I'd like to hear from those that have gone through this experience. I've shown at some local shows that had judging (never an AACA event), sometimes I felt judges were on their game, while at other venue
  14. How finite are the judging regulations when looking at prewar cars? I have had several other cars judged and they did very well. I know usually lights are expected to be functioning, what about functioning wiper motors, cigarette lighters? Can I expect a deduction on a car with a driver operated spotlight, mounted in the a-pillar, that appears to have been installed when the car was new? I've seen vintage photos of cars of the same manufacture and body style both with and without the spotlight.
