  7. Leaving Christmas Dinner Last night, cold but luckily no snow.
  8. My 91 has the CD player which doesnt work so i use the phone mount they sell on amazon inserts into the front of the CD slot i use the same one on my daily driver 05 Rainier, it works real well and when you take it out nothing is there. I'm happy with it playing my Spotify through a small rechargeable Bluetooth dual speaker
  9. Thanks for the feedback, at a quick glance it does appear it might be a separate piece, probably next week i am going to jack the car up and see how it is taken out and figure out my work from there and what to do about paint or clean and polish. i will keep all posted on this thread with my findings Marty
  10. franc944 Congrats on the new purchase. i looked that car over when it was at our Long Island Chapter show. glad to see it end up in a collectors stable. i know it needed some work but i was really impressed with the undercarriage and how tight the car felt when i drove it. feel free to PM me Good Luck with it i think you got a real good buy check out our website libuickclub.org under events / other club outings from Nov there is a shot of the car maybe you could make it down to one of our shows on the island or ill see you sometime up north. Marty
  11. i was wondering if anyone has the paint code for the lower part of the rear bumper. this is the center area by the tailpipes which is black. my car needs that black area redone and 'm not sure if it is supposed to be gloss or semi like SEM TRIM BLACK or a flat. my car is not a low mileage car so it is hard to tell what it should be. if no one has a code maybe the real low mileage owners could tell me what the sheen is on it. thanks for all the help Marty
  12. thanks for the info that helps in my planning Marty
  13. EmTee if you dont mind me asking what is the ceiling height of the garage pictured
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. check out the 2 Reatta's that showed up at our Long Island chapter friendship meet this past weekend. both are for sale. keep an eye on our for sale on our website. they should be listed soon at libuickclub.org.
  19. my mom and my grandmother with their probably new 62 Lesabre and some young guy pretending to drive, this falls under "start them young"
  20. 37 of us down on Long Island drove their Buicks to the chapter fall back friendship meet at Arnold Buick go to https://www.libuickclub.org/other-club-outings-2016/ that should show you a bunch of great Buick pics from Nov 4 check these out for a preview, mine is the 57, great day for a show!
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. My sons 2005 Century under 50k after a Deer decided to jump in front of it last night, he is OK the air bags did their job, thank GOD. Man do i hate this pic
