  1. Great video always have fun with the results polshing stainless totally agree with ALL the safety precautions mentioned above i learned the hard way how sharp the edge of my 75's grille molding was lucklly the damage wasnt too bad and healed well and the molding survived i have also had some good luck polishing plastic, different wheel and polish, but you have to know what plastic you have taillights come out great dashboard lens was a loser thanks for posting the video Marty
  2. With all due respect to the direction this photo has taken the sign on the rear of the Buick shows a ships wheel a quick Google brought up https://www.pilotinternational.org/ an organization started by women using a pilots wheel from a riverboat as their logo an oprganization charted in 1921 by local business women, an interesting read on their website so then i googled Tootsie Dewar and a newspaper clipping from Long Beach Ca June 1950 came up and it turns out there were 4 of them i guess sisters it does mention 3 blondes i have to admit it is amazing what i
  3. Thank You to all yes these are replaceable h4 bulbs i have the problem with the left/driver unit the socket hits the bracket not on the right but it is close 2seater are your housings Hella, do you put the rubber seal over the bulb. and are your housings e spec or DOT with alignment tabs i am wondering if the vision plus DOT H4 housings would be better for rear clearance, but they dont have as much of a cutoff i think absolutely love the E spec cutoff in the lights i have IPC lamps in my 78 wagon and my 75 pace car but this brand seems to have gone away they were
  4. I purchased the Hella E spec Housings thinking that they would replace the the sealed beams. the bulb seems to be deeper in size and the plug now hits the headlamp assembly mounting bracket. i know i can grind the part of the bracket to clear the electrical connection. just wondering if anyone has tried his before and maybe there is a better way. please dont bring up the led headlamp issue i am not partial to how they look and have always loved euro lights from the first days of my driving with Cibie lamps many moons ago.

  11. I like the rules that Lamar has in Georgia but up here in NY its a little different 50 states possibly 50 sets of rules and what town or county is going to go against the governor i don't like it any more than you guys but sometimes it just is what it is. The BCA has to make a decision with what they know now not what might be, and i cant speak for their decision making, who would have thought we would be having these conversations 2 years ago. old-tank don't end your membership just because of this, the main source of Buick and where else would you find a nicer bunc
  12. I do not have any more info then what i have read above I do think we shuld all take a deep breath until an official statement is announced. but from my own experiance the insurance is following state guidelines so how do you control that in an outside venue and if you go beyond the limit and something happens you might not have insurance then where does it fall, on the organization and board members. all i am saying is there is so much more than just hanging out at a car show. (which i was hoping to do in NC) i am not totally sure we are going to have our local

  14. Steve and Margaret my apoligies for not seeing this sooner and thanks for emailing the question. For everyone we do have room for trailer parking and would love to see the pre-war Buicks.
  15. Bill the term i believe for what happened to your stator is a vane "FOLDED OVER" no joke when i bought my 60 many many years ago my stator looked just like yours. replaced the one vane checked the rest and back together it went. those stator vanes are constantly under pressure and heat so like anything else sometimes fail. you are holding the father of the switch pitch turbo hydramatics and the reason the trans is so smooth and became a better performer once the movable stator was added i the mid 50's. you just have to love the engineering that went into these cars. i love telling people i ha
