  1. when you say that you use STP is that a special transmission STP???
  2. My wife and I stopped by my mom's and my in-laws (pic) to visit the seniors with safe distancing my sister in law was also at the inlaws and even the Reatta was Social Distancing. Then took a 2 hour ride on Long Island's Gold Coast. Great weather, Great people and a Great car
  3. So this past week I was finally able to get my showcase in my garage back together
  4. it is possible that the car is looking for the extra from the secondaries when under that kind of load 375 cfm is small, Nailheads like carb i understand your thinking but you might be defeating yourself in that situation a 2bbl would probably be wide open so why not let the secondaries help out just another way to look at it
  5. you are correct the steel plugs on the bottom of all nailhead motors rot out the intake must be removed and the plug replaced i believe that CARS carries the plug and i have seen them on ebay be aware there are different sizes for different years
  6. I have to admit that at first read i was very skeptical at the idea after reading through with the answers given i have a different outlook will it work? who knows! but then again the only thing i can tell for sure is we are not having a car show this year. sometimes especially under unusual circumstances things that are unusual work better. thinking outside the box right now is better than what we have and i'm all for it, will i be able to make both? i don't know i am not retired and like said above that is quite a bit of time off and for me our extended family does a vacation together in late July. would i love to do it with a road trip with a bunch of Buick's in the middle, ABSOLUTELY! we definitely have enough notice and who knows maybe this might start something new kudos to the BCA and NMC for taking the chance, we older folks don't like change so sometimes its better to force it on us lol GOD willing i will be at one for sure, hpefully two where was that dinner going to be lol Marty
  7. Monday afternoon more then 15 Buicks from the Long Island Chapter took part in a Thank You Antique Car Parade past NUMC Medical Center thanking Healthcare workers and First Responders. Thank You to everyone doing such a hard job. God Bless. Glad we were part of it.
  8. On Sunday the Wife and I took a ride in the 91 and on such a nice day you have to end up getting ice cream. Great ride with Great company.
  9. The Board of the Long Island Chapter has decided to CANCEL the show for 2020! We waited as long as possible to make the decision, but it has become evident that this is not the time to have a show. The decision was made with the Health and Safety of our members and participants in mind. As with many shows on Long Island our club donates the profit from our show to three charities, i would like to ask anyone who was considering attending our show, if financially capable to donate to any of these charities or the charity of your choice, unfortunately many charities are experiencing a strain during this time. www.licares.org www.jctf.org www.bobbiandthestrays.org Stay Safe, Stay Healthy See you down the road Marty Jablonski Director Long Island Chapter
  10. nice Manta looks in real nice shape stick or auto. like the 225 Riv as you can see in above post love the 6 windows. Elegance!!!
  11. Took the Reatta out to the auto parts store on Sunday for a quick maintenance on my 60 Then today took my 60 out for a spin practicing social distancing this is the parking lot we have our yearly show in at 9:30 on a Wednesday morning you would be hard pressed to find an available parking because it would be filled with commuter cars
  12. To reinforce the idea of special white walls and what the Tire company's might do check out this picture of the 75 pace car with FREE SPIRIT in raised Blue letters'on the 2 Real Pace Cars at Indy not trying to hijack the thread Marty
  13. So are you absolutely sure you don't need a running lawn ornament. Lol
  14. If I was a young man this listing would be in my driveway not on the forum lol
  15. 1938 Buick Special 2 door sedan model 48. this car for the most part is complete but is definitely a project car. the engine has been rebuilt, transmission work has been done, fuel tank work and new exhaust and brake work. i took the pictures below, the day i was there about a month ago the car started and moved in and out of the garage, i did a quick inspection on the car and realized it was beyond what i was interested in. but for someone looking for a project or a drive train parts car this might be the car. i did not drive the car. as the pictures show there is alot of rust/rot damage to the trunk area. please look up the production numbers this is not a high production model. i have more pics i could email to you if you are interested, email me at mrjbuick@optonline.net the contact info for the car is Russell 631-921-1204. the $4,000 price is about right for the price guides, dont insult the man he is not going to give the car away. this car was used by his brother before he passed away for parades, i believe the original color was dark gray the red is from a spray can.
  16. Jack i am sure that everyone on the Board and in Ohio, have nothing but the best interests of the membership in mind. They are dealing with a totally unforeseen situation and i am sure working very hard to solve the problems that are in front of them now.. Lets bring it back to Ohio in 23 or 24 so that they can finally enjoy their hard work. Lets just hope and pray that we can put all this behind us as soon as is safely possible. Kudos to the Ohio team for doing what they have done so far. Cant wait to get out there and do what we were going to do, another year. Marty
  17. The Board of the Long Island Chapter is keeping a close watch on all events that surround us and are sometimes changing daily. Our Chapters primary concern is for the health and safety of our members and friends who would participate in our show. We will be making a decision when it becomes evident that we could not put it on safely. We have some time before we have to do that, although realistically with recent announcements extending guidelines to April 30, it is looking less hopeful. Again we can have a Great Buick show anytime, as long as we can do it with all of our Healthy friends bringing their Beautiful Buick's. we will post on this forum when the decision is made Please everyone follow the guidelines set forth by your Health Department, State, and CDC, this is serious stuff. Be Healthy, Be Safe, so we can all meet down the road. Marty Jablonski Director
  18. just speculating on the switches maybe one is for door locks or even cooler what if one controls all 4 windows now that would ultra cool even today

  23. Being a 57 Special 4dr sdn owner a few observations in a 57 i don't get the fender skirts as has been mentioned above the lines and exposed wheels look great on a 57 continental kit is personal taste had a friend put one on a 57 Roadmaster 75 years ago you could have a cup of coffee by the time it drove by the owner was in love with the 50's theme dual antennas so now there are three on the car hmmmm dual hooded accessory mirrors very cool i have one of those on my car and love it mine is mounted higher on the fender but hey it was an accessory i guess he never did the cloth on the doors that could finish it off it has the early temp gauge in the dash those colors just work so well on 57s really good looking car just curious how the car is started being an alternator and looks like a non pedal start carb. and everyone who doesnt know calls the dynaflow a 2 speed because of "D" and "L" my opinion
