    collector cars in California fire

    Mr Earl i too hope that report is a mistake I know that we are all car crazys and love our stuff and i say the next with that understanding most of those cars will be missed but were probably insured and many will get something back but you really have to feel for the people who have lost everything houses/business and they might never recover or it will take many years for them to get back to normal where i live we went through SANDY in 2012, I personally didn't do to bad but there are people in my area who still are not back in their homes Its just a shame, and GOD BLESS those who didn't make it

    98 Lesabre rear seat

    Have you compared the back of the seat when it is out to see if the brackets look the same shape from your pics it looks like the seat frame might be bent. It is pretty easy to do if you are not careful.

    Autumn Buicks

    Took my wife's 14 Lacrosse to the Boy Scout Thanksgiving feast for our Troop tonight at Schiff Scout Camp and parked near an old LIRR caboose used as an office.

    collector cars in California fire

    I have seen on the NPR site pics of a burned out shop with a Rambler I think and an El Camino in the background. I know we love our old cars but when it comes down to it you can always get another antique but if your gone that's not an option. Please listen to the warnings. And take them seriously!

    headlight aiming

    I had my headlights disassembled earlier this year to do some detailing/bodywork what you are trying to do is relatively easy Put the headlights up and pull the plugs off the bulbs ( BE AWARE WHEN YOU HOOK UP THE HEADLAMP WITH POWER IT MIGHT WANT TO DROP THE LIGHTS BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR FINGERS WHEN PLUGGING BACK IN THE LIGHTS) remove the plastic decorative trim (4 torx screws) my suggestion is to take the headlamp cover off (body painted part) this is held on with 4 nuts i think are 10mm don't loose the washers and note the position of them Barney your knowledge of these cars is exceptional but i have to respectfully point out the stainless ring is only to hold the headlamp bulb sealed beam in with 4 screws take this off THE BACK OF IT IS SHARP and take the headlamp bulb out the headlamp bucket is the black metal part that the bulb sits in, this has a spring for tension, pop the spring off the bucket with one of the hook tools that look like a screwdriver at this point the bucket should be loose and can be wiggled out of the adjusting screws, the slots are at an angle, remove the bucket the 2 adjusting screws go into plastic retainer/nuts these can be removed by compressing the clips and pushing them out the back of the housing take the adjuster to your parts store to match up, if they don't have it you can go to an auto body supply store but you might have to buy a box of 10 reverse the procedure to install and remember to have your headlights aimed you need to have DOT approved bulbs in with the 3 little tips on the front glass as complicated as this sounds it is relatively straight forward

    Autumn Buicks

    The colors are just starting to turn on the island so this might not look like an autumn picture but it is. A very blustery day on the South shore of Long Island on the Great South Bay, Robert Moses Causeway bridge in the distance. To windy to even put the top down. But still great chance to drive the Reatta

    Hershey 2018

    MrEarl Shore Buick was in Sunrise Highway in Bellmore it was A 50s-60s modern building tall full glass front those letters were on the front of the building. the franchise went out during the consolidation GM did with Buick pairing with GMC. Shore was a single car line point so the Buick point was moved to Sun in Wantagh, who had GMC (they sponsor our LI chapter show). the building was finally torn down about 3 years ago and is now a big parking lot for the Big appliance store PC Richards which is across the side street. i remember going to look at the last gen Riviera Silver Arrow they had on the floor. i was unable to come up with a pic i am going to contact another member of our chapter that might have more info on the dealer and letters.The drawing above as nice as it is is nothing like the actual building. nice score

  12. A FEW MORE FROM THE NE REGIONAL THANKS FOR A GREAT SHOW
  13. Went to a local all make car show with some chapter members today. It was a charity event for the John Theissen Children's Foundation. Got quite exciting when the Football player signing autographs was Ottis Anderson, Superbowl MVP in 1991 who received a 1991 red Reatta conv. from Buick. He came over to my car and was thrilled to see one just like the one he received in '91. Pretty cool day
