  1. It is a shame, and that was such a great show with beautiful countryside. I think that part of the problem is that GM is demanding facility improvements and like. The Bennett Buick article in the Bugle stated they want them to buy expensive equipment for the electric vehicles. upgrades, equipment, less models, can you blame them for getting out. another way that GM is thinning their dealers Loved going to that show Jim and his crew did a great job, many thanks to the Cernak family, i hope Jim finds a new location soon!

  3. Smartin the ebay item you show is very close or correct for the application the problem i had was that with the metal connector/lug on the cable i was not able to slip on the covering that was correct for the diam wire because the connector was bigger. i used a larger size and tapes it at the ends but this was for my 60 which is a driver i would not want to do that on a resto or original Marty
  4. DAVES89 no hard feelings we all love these cars in one way or another just breaking chops lol and actually do understand one of our members bought a riv and it was the first time i had seen the startup display on the CRT was very cool i never realized how neat that was till then Marty
  5. i love my 91 vert but as Barney said look for the best condition Best deal Best color for you that you can find 88-90 if brake system is bad you might be in for bucks to repair and to DAVES89 comment about no soul on 90 and 91 wow cruel comment maybe you don't deserve your 90 vert lol just in fun Marty
  6. RivNut you are stating that the 64 was not a switch pitch years ago i got a engine and trans from a 64 Electra wreck and i am pretty sure that the dual quad linkage had the switch for the electric kick down just like the switch pitch cars so are you absolutely sure that the 64 did not have switch pitch my out is it was many many years ago lol
  7. NTX5467 your comments above well said and agree with such But i think because it got caught up in this somewhat heated thread the "my year is better than your year" was started to lighten it up with some humor i don't think anyone was looking to better anyone else just a bunch of guys sitting around a campfire making each other laugh, i think any one of us that commented like that would be happy with any year Buick again thanks for the solid comments Marty
  8. i was writing as you were the picture says it all thanks
  9. just went on their website to check them out on the contact page it states "you will never be asked to make a bank transfer as payment" so with them stating it, Big Red Flag sorry but haven't dealt with any wire harness company's but i do have a question my 57 is original low mileage the negative cable is cloth covered the positive (battery to junction) was changed before i got it, to your knowledge is that wire also covered in cloth or is it just the rubber insulation. would be interested to know and when you find a source please let us know thanks Marty
  10. i'm on board with the Autosol also had some nice results with it
  11. Sounds good to me here goes my wax of choice Collinite Insulator Wax hands down probably the best wax i have ever used with great staying power no abrasive just a wax ask around at car shows you might be surprised how many people use it Marty
  12. OK i am going to chime in again so hold on 54 Really i am sorry but how can you compare that to the style and elegance and power of the 1960 models especially the 225 all in good fun Marty
  13. Great story a fun read also love the Maroon and tan great color combination and again i will agree a good looking group
  14. From Instagram yesterday all of the new Encore GX First is Buick USA Second is Buick Mexico Third and fourth is Buick Canada All that snow up north sure gives you Canadians a great perspective on things. And I just wanted to make sure you know how to use the tailgate. lol
  15. Do i think this is the place for political club issues basically in public? NO Do i think it should be in a private type forum? YES Do i think it will work? PROBABLY NOT i believe that sometimes the people that are posting some of this (NOT ALL) want a public forum if they wanted to try to solve problems they could call the higher ups or maybe they don't want a one on one get involved with a chapter and see how that works (THEY MIGHT BE) work with the system talk to your chapter board I like having my "handle" on my comments but if you log in you can see my info I don't hide just want the people who are really part of this to see my info NOT TROLLS Many good comments above, now you have mine sorry about a bit of the New York attitude Lamar hope this helps Marty
  16. on my phone (android) after i hit the sign in i have to swipe sideways to see the actual sign in menu
  17. check out this place www.morelandhose.com they have 2 locations on Long Island i don't know if they do mail order but if we have them on LI i am sure there must be other companies that might be closer to you seen as you are modifying go with the braided hose trick it out a little more good luck
  18. i love my 91 vert got a good deal on it had to do work but that's ok and knew that going in, i try to drive it as much as possible so agree DRIVE THEM TO ENJOY THEM but saying that real low mileage original perfect ones should be preserved. as far as will a Reatta ever be a collector car, back in the mid 70's to early 80's 1 walked away from 3 different GSX's between $3000 to $6500 dollars because they all had something wrong with them all running good looking cars, but before the market went wild. i think one just went through Barrett Jackson for $183,000. Give them time Reatta's will find their mark in the mean time we can have all the fun with them we want with plenty out there and in junk yards for spare parts.
  19. 33 bucks and it looks real trick too, nice find good luck with it
  20. did you change the radiator cap to a cap for the coolant recovery system the original cap will NOT perform correctly with a tank Nice job by the way very neat looking and just because i cant see it the tank does have a overflow pour out hose from somewhere on the top ( i see something on the right but it is lost in all the black lol)
  21. this is worrisome to me you cant just replace the springs with something shorter, the springs have to have the correct tension or it could produce the problem you have. i would try to source the holddown springs from a reputable Buick source and make sure the pins on those springs are the correct length, if they were to long it could produce the same problem. Good Luck
  22. wish they were closer a little to far for a road trip lol
  23. thanks Y-JobFan understood just as a note the select 60 hit $25k and didn't sell do they bring it through again or maybe a private sale
  24. please correct me if i am wrong but don't the insurance company's and value guides use the results of the auctions to generate the values they use. i don't think that they are taking into consideration how good the repaint was or what might have been done if so, more low dollar cars going through auction is hurting the market value and in turn how much we might invest in these cars opinions please
